The Manfrotto 294 Carbon Fiber Tripod with 804RC2 3-Way Head is a lightweight support system for DSLR cameras, with a maximum height of 71.26" including its head and a load capacity of 8.82 lb. The 294 uses "next-generation" carbon-fiber tubing: an innovative composite tube with optimized fiber angles that provides consistent advantages over aluminum tubing in terms of rigidity, lightness and stability.
The 294 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 lightweight three-way head (with a quick-release camera plate) provides this kit with a high level of precision, with independent controls for each of the three axes of movement and rotation. Three-way heads are especially well-suited to architectural, macro and still life photography. The head is interchangeable and can be easily removed 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.
