Manfrotto 290 Extra Kit

290 XTRA CARBON Carbon fiber 3 section tripod


The new 290 Xtra Carbon 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 aging and wear. This tripod’s key feature is in its choice of four leg angle positions which maximize shooting creativity. Its rapid center column adds flexibility and extends the min-max height range. A new rubber legwarmer guarantees comfortable grip and maximum ergonomics. The tripod comes with a dedicated shoulder bag ensuring comfortable portability at all times.

3 Way head with RC2 in Adapto w/ retractable levers


3-way photo head constructed of ultra durable and lightweight technical polymer, the new 804 is now even compact thanks to the new retractable levers, with ergonomics handle provided with rubber. The new patented 804 has a unique spring feature to assist in the tilt motion of the head to compensate for heavier, off-center loads. Moreover the standard quick release plate fits snugly in the low-profile receiver.
