Manfrotto's new 290 Carbon is a family of carbon fibre camera supports designed for passionate new photographers as they progress and improve their skill.
The MK293C4-A0RC2 includes a 293 carbon tripod and a quick-release ball head. The 293 tripod is built to be transportable without compromising on stability. It uses a 'next-generation' carbon tubing: an innovative composite tube with optimized fibre angles that provide consistent advantages over aluminium tubing in terms of rigidity, lightness and stability. 4-section construction with smaller diameter carbon tubing helps to minimize the folded length for a more compact tripod. Other features include durable tension-adjustable aluminium leg locks; two-position leg angle settings making low-angle shooting possible; and a rapid centre column. The ball head with quick release camera plate allows you to position your camera freely and quickly, then block it solidly in place using the convenient single locking knob. The head can be unscrewed in order to allow use of the tripod with other specialized heads. This kit is compact, ideally suited for travelling photographers.
