The Manfrotto MK290DUA3-BH Aluminium Tripod Kit is a combination of sturdiness and innovative high-end technical features. It is the ideal solution to enable hobbyist photographers to get extremely creative on their shoots. The 290 Dual is a 3-section tripod featuring aluminium leg tubes and top casting enhancing rigidity, durability and performance. Its aluminium leg locking levers are tension-adjustable, so they can be tightened to counteract any effects of ageing and wear, keeping the tripod fully functional throughout its long lifespan.

The 290 tripod’s key feature is the patented 90° centre column mechanism, which allows the column to be extended vertically as normal, or horizontally, effortlessly opening up a wide range of framing options. This makes it an extremely versatile tripod, suitable for a wide range of photography applications. Moreover its choice of four leg angle positions maximize shooting creativity, getting right down to ground level. A new rubber leg-warmer guarantees comfortable grip and maximum ergonomics.

The Kit comes with the 496RC2 Ball Head specifically designed for compactness and transportability. Its broad, spherical movement together with its quick release plate mechanism enable rapid, easy framing. The head carrying the 200 PL Light plate is fully made of aluminium and features friction control to help photographers make the finest adjustments to their compositions even with heavy equipment.
