The Manfrotto MK290XTC3-3W Carbon Fibre Tripod Kit is the perfect combination of extra-rigidity and lightness: this is the first extra-sturdy carbon tripod dedicated to hobbyist photographers.
The 290 Xtra Carbon is a 3-section tripod, the biggest in the 290 range, with carbon composite leg tubes which increase the tripod’s rigidity and stability, enabling it to easily support heavy equipment. The top casting is made of magnesium, as are the adjustable leg locking levers which can be tightened to counteract any effects of ageing and wear. This tripod’s key feature is in its choice of four leg angle positions which maximise shooting creativity. Its rapid centre column adds flexibility and extends the min-max height range. The tripod comes with a dedicated shoulder bag ensuring comfortable portability at all times.
The Kit comes as a kit with the MH804 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.
