Manfrotto introduces the new 290 collection, carefully designed to accompany passionate hobbyists as they take more serious steps in their passion for photography. The classic rock-solid 290 tripod for photographers who want to put together a custom support fine-tuned to their own specific preferences. The Manfrotto 290 Xtra Aluminum Tripod Kit with Ball Head is the perfect solution in terms of stability for hobbyist photographers. The 290 Xtra is a 3-section tripod with aluminum leg tubes and special top casting enhancing rigidity, durability and performance. Its aluminum leg-locking levers are tension-adjustable, so they can be tightened to counteract any effects of aging. It also feature choice of four leg angle positions which maximize shooting creativity, rapid centre column adds flexibility and extends the min-max height range. The tripod extends from 15.7 inches to a maximum height of 66.9 inches weighing 4.9 lb and can hold up to 11 lb of gear.

A new rubber legwarmer guarantees comfortable grip and maximum ergonomics. The tripod comes with a dedicated shoulder bag ensuring comfortable portability at all times. The kit has a center ball head specifically designed for compactness and transportability. The wider spherical movement of the ballhead together with quick release plate mechanism enables rapid and easy framing. The head carrying the 200 PL plate is fully made of aluminum and features friction control to help photographers make the finest adjustments to their compositions even with heavy equipment. The Ball Head is constructed of die-cast aluminum, has a single repositionable locking lever, ±90° tilt movement, plus a friction control for precise positioning. An RC2 quick-release plate allows for fast and easy camera attachment.
