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 MT294C3 is, like the rest of the 290 Carbon range, built to be transportable without compromising on stability. To achieve this, 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. 294 tripod legs use a 3-section construction with large diameter carbon tubing that maximizes camera stability and minimizes vibration, ideal for zoom lenses. Durable tension-adjustable aluminium leg locks can be tightened to suit your preference and to counteract any effects of wear and ageing, keeping the tripod fully functional throughout its long life. Two-position leg angle settings make low-angle shooting possible, while a rapid centre column adds flexibility and extends the min-max height range. The disk at the top of the centre column is compatible with any Manfrotto head.
