The Manfrotto MK290LTA3-3W Aluminium Tripod Kit is the first sturdy supports of the 290 collection dedicated to hobbyist photographers that is also easy to carry. The 290 Light is a 3-section tripod, the smallest in the 290 range, featuring aluminium leg tubes and aluminium 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 or wear, keeping the tripod fully functional throughout its long lifespan. Two leg angle position settings enable low-angle shooting, and a rapid centre column adds flexibility extending the min-max height range. A new rubber leg-warmer guarantees comfortable grip and maximum ergonomics.

The 290 Light comes as a kit with the MH293D3-Q2 3-way photo head with quick release plate, specifically designed for compactness and transportability. This patented head ensures precise framing and solid support of medium-heavy camera equipment. The key feature of this head is its retractable levers which fold away when not in use, making it more compact for easier portability. Its newly-designed ergonomic handles are made of special, grip-increasing rubber. The three-way head is made of Adapto, a lightweight polymer which keeps weight low while ensuring high mechanical resistance for sturdy support.
