Manfrotto 290 overview

  • 1Description

The Manfrotto 290 Xtra Aluminum Tripod with 804 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head extends from 16.5" to a maximum height of 67.5". It weighs 5.6 lb and can hold up to 8.8 lb of gear. The tripod's 3-section legs have flip locks to individually change the height of each leg. The locks are tension-adjustable to help maintain a tight lock over the tripod's lifespan. Four leg angles allow you to position the tripod in a variety of ways. A rubber grip on one of the legs aids in carrying the tripod, and rubber feet keep it stable on slippery surfaces.

The included 804 3-way pan/tilt head features retractable handles, which decreases the overall size when not in use. A built-in spring assists with the tilting motion of the head by compensating for heavier lenses and cameras with off-center loads. A 200LT-PL quick-release plate is included for quickly attaching and removing your camera from the head. Also included with the tripod is a shoulder bag for added comfort and protection during transport.

Manfrotto 290 reviews

MK290XTA3-3WUS 290 Xtra Aluminum Tripod with 804 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than you expect... Needing a new tripod for my first official college photo program, this brand was recommended to me by the professors of the program. While expensive, it came with such high praise from them that it seemed a no-brainier. I expected a fairly standard product, good, but with others of theirs so much more expensive, what I actually recived was a present surprise. This is a tripod that will last you for years and years. The head is easy to move, but the movement is stiff, so it doesn't feel like you will just spin your camera off the top. The reversible center pole makes taking ground level shots a breeze. And the legs are quick to open, but solid in their locking. I will buy Manfrotto for all my future needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tripod at a great price What a great tripod from Manfrotto. It may not be light and it may not be compact but for an entry level video work or any photography where you need a tripod, this one will do the job. The legs are sturdy with no shakiness. It easily holds my Nikon D810 with ease. I needed this tripos for some video work which worked out fine. The video controls area retractable so when you don't need them, they're out of the way. The clamp lock legs do the job perfectly and the pan is smooth. This is one of those do it all tripods that everyone should have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would definitely buy this tripod again. My first time buying anything from B&H Photo. I was honestly nervous at first when I bought the tripod, but my college professor recommended me this particular one from the website, so I had nothing to worry about. The item came exactly on the day they promised which didn't make me wait by the door like the other stuff I buy from other websites. The item packaging was great. No damage or anything and came with its Manfrotto bag. I used it for my last project for photography and the tripod works perfectly. Easy to use along with the tripod being light. Only downside is I should have bought this sooner. Overall, phenomenal brand and wonderful tripod. I look forward to buying more things from B & H Photo!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This tripod does the trick. I am a real estate photographer and need a solid and steady foundation for bracketed exposures. This tripod does the trick. It is a bit heavier than I expected, but it is plenty mobile just the same. The retractable levers are are welcome feature, since the tripod has to travel from location to location. I would recommend this to any real estate photographer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sturdy and adjustable but... I love the adjustability of this tripod. The pan/tilt head is solid and holds my 100-400 mm lens with not problem. Pans smoothly and is extremely solid for low light shots. But...... The tilt is only 30 degrees upward with the camera/lens mounted in the standard direction. To get a full 90 degree upward shot I need to reverse the camera which puts the handles in a wierd postion for use. I can work around it but it is a curious design.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would probably buy the next model up next time The tripod piece of it, it's great. Light and Sturdy but the quick release on the 3 way head seems to cheaply made from all plastic components. I was disappointed in the quality of the quick release this head came with. It was an affordable tripod but not in the quality I was expecting to get from Manfrotto.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have for scouting I had one identical to this one before I purchased this. It was very handy on our many adventures and I don't know what I would do with out it. The last one that I had fell off of my truck on the way back from an overnight trip. Great quality at a reasonable price! You can't go wrong with one of these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good, solid and well built portable tripod clever little tripod....like it a lot....lightweight but sturdy enough ( especially if you add a weight /sandbag) Nice panning actions and quick release.
