The black Manfrotto 293 Aluminum Tripod with 494RC2 Quick Release Ball Head is the most compact ball head kit in the 290 series, folding up to a very portable 20.7" and weighing under 4 lb. The removable ball head includes the RC2 quick-release plate for easy exchanging of cameras or for switching to handheld shooting with your DSLR or other camera.
Outfitted with the included head, the 4-section 293 tripod supports loads up to 8.8 lb. Its three legs are independently adjustable, and their angles can be locked at 23° and 51°. The center column is three-faced, so it won't rotate, and the tripod collar has an anti-shock feature to protect your camera from accidental impact if the center column is retracted quickly.
The 494RC2 head features a friction-control knob and two grooves for 90° tilt.
