This kit from B&H Photo pairs the Manfrotto 294 Aluminum Tripod with the 324RC2 Grip Ball Head. It combines the tripod legs with a fast-action grip ball head that allows single-handed operation while your eye never leaves the viewfinder.

Extending to 70.5" with the included head, the 294 tripod is an ideal support for a DSLR or other camera weighing up to 7.7 lb. Its aluminum leg tubes feature a D-shaped cross section to defeat torsion and enhance stability while its flip-type leg locks make setup and breakdown a snap. The standard 23° leg angle can be changed to 51° for shooting as close as 15.6" from the ground.

The lightweight, 1 lb technopolymer 324RC2 Grip Ball Head with quick release offers a uniquely fast, ergonomic way of adjusting and locking your camera down. You can reposition the head easily with one hand while your eye never leaves the viewfinder. Simply grip the head to adjust the camera angle and release; it locks securely in place. The head features a bubble level, friction control, 360° panoramic rotation, -19°/ +90° lateral, and -90°/ +90° front tilt. It can support up to 7.72 lb. A 200PL-14 quick release camera plate is included.

  • Manfrotto 294 Aluminum Tripod

    With its aluminum alloy leg tubes and top casting, the Manfrotto 294 Aluminum Tripod is a sturdy support for a DSLR or other camera. When the three leg sections and center column are fully extended, the tripod reaches a maximum height of 66.5", and its load capacity of 11 lb makes it a good choice for larger cameras. The tripod weighs 4.2 lb, and folds down to 23.6" for transport.

    The three-section 294 tripod's universal 3/8"-16 stud makes it ready to attach to most tripod heads. An anti-shock collar protects your camera from accidental impact when the center column is retracted quickly.

You can frame and reposition the head freely and frequently to get the perfect photo: grip the head to move the camera and as soon as you release, it locks securely in place.

    The Joystick Head has a single locking lever, making control of all movements fast. The head features 360° panoramic rotation, -19°/ +90° lateral, and -90°/ +90° front tilt.
