Much better than standard feet

Seldom Seen Joe, Adorama

  • Excerpt: The standard feet for the 190MF4 tripod are small rubber slip on feet. The problem with these is that they often slip off. I've had to replace them several times after they came off in the field (mud, sand, etc.) without my knowledge. These new feet attach much more securely and provide better stability. I wish I had replaced with these feet the first time instead of going through several pairs of the rubber feet. The only down side is the weight.
  • Pros: Good Stability
  • Cons: Heavy

  • Excerpt: The original rubber tips for the Manfrotto 190MF4 Tripod would on occasions slip on the uneven surfaces and worst of all would at times come off from the legs. The Rubber/Metal Spiked Feet set is extremely secure and provides excellent stabilization on virtually any surface. Wish that I knew about these before as they are a remarkable improvement to an already excellent tripod!
  • Pros: Easy to install, Easy to use, Fits Well, Improves Tripod Function, Lightweight, Same color as tripod, Solid/Sturdy
  • Cons: None

Manfrotto 190MF4 MagFiber 4 review by OldRedFox

  • Summary: Easy to use, the MF4 sets up quickly and takes down just as quickly. It is VERY solid when up and supports a 300mm 2.8 lens without issues. It is tall enough for a 6 foot user without using the center column and is very easy to carry. The only drawback is that it is about a pound heavier than a comparable Gitzo - as comenpsation is every bit as well built and about 40% cheaper.
  • Pros: Well made, relatively light, easy to use
  • Cons: expensive, though less than a Gitzo
