The Manfrotto 293 Carbon Fiber Tripod with Quick Release Ball Head is a lightweight support system for DSLR cameras with a maximum height of 4.84' and a load capacity of 8.8 lb. The 293 uses a "next-generation" carbon tubing: an innovative composite tube with optimized fiber angles that provide consistent advantages over aluminum tubing in terms of rigidity, lightness and stability.
The 4-section construction with smaller diameter carbon tubing than its sister 294 models helps to minimize the folded length for a more compact tripod that's ideal for travelling photographers. The 293 tripod features leg locks that were redesigned for better ergonomics. Two-position leg angle settings make low-angle shooting possible, and a rapid center column adds flexibility and extends the height range.
The included ball head with quick release and camera plate allows you to re-position your camera quickly, then lock it solidly in place using the single locking knob, ready to shoot in an instant. Because the ball head is so compact, it’s also ideally suited for travelling photographers, making the whole kit easier to pack into luggage or your photography bag. The head is interchangeable and can be easily unscrewed to allow you to use the tripod with specialized heads - the disk at the top of the center column is compatible with any Manfrotto head.
