The 190cx can go to 3cm low as you can remove the centre column and replace it with the attached low angle column. if not you can alway pay more to get the 190cxpro3. which is the same as the 190xprob.
    Yes, I like taking macro and landscape.. Macro lens is in my wish list...

    Those ball head you mentioned 486rc3 and 488rc2 and so on....
    The tripod able to take it?...

    The centre column can be replace? meaning there is addition short column given?

    190CXpro3 is way out of my budget...

    Another good thing about 190XPROB is when you have the centre column placed horizontally you can pan/rotate it damn easily, good for panning/shooting videos.

    its 486rc2 there is no rc3... The tripod will definately take the weight of the two bh. as for the 190cx, its the same as the 190xb which has a short column at the other end of the column where to can remove and use it as a short column. those who bought the 055clb or 190clb from me will know about it.

    for the price you show us, its better to get the 190cx as the 190xprob is over price.

    190XPROB weights 1.8kg; 190CX weights 1.3kg. It's up to you.

    Anyway there's 190CXPRO3. It's carbon fiber with horizontal positioning.
