    no... dun feel that at all, manfrotto 190XproB not as flexible as this.

    I feel it is more to a copy of Gitzo Explorer. BTW i am using 190XproB and I may change to this tripod.

    Thanks.
    I got it 400+ less then 500. cant remember the actual price. BTW I think u need to order if u want 283CT, cuz I I got the last or only pcs.

    263AT is tripod only and 263AB is tripod with head. shd be ard 260 for 263AT.

    I have to double confirm with them if u are keen.

    I am using Markin M10 with Alta pro 283CT, no problem. BTW when u purchase, I think u can choose to buy just the tripod with the head.

    There is no such model as 263T.

    For the newest Alta Pro, there are two ranges:
    The AT and the CT.
    AT is an Aluminum alloy, and costs less.
    CT has carbon fiber, and costs more.

    263AT, 264AT
    283CT, 284CT

    The '3' and '4', of course refer to the number of leg sections.

    With modern cameras this smart, it's easier than ever to take bad pictures.
