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.

  • MH804 3-Way, Pan-and-Tilt Head with 200LT-PL Quick Release Plate

    This MH804 3-Way, Pan-and-Tilt Head from Manfrotto has a load capacity of 8.8 lb and can be attached to tripods or other support systems that feature a 3/8"-16 mount. It includes an integrated RC2 quick release cam lock and a 200LT-PL Quick Release Plate. RC2 compatible quick release plates such as the 200LT-PL can be removed from the head by pulling the cam lock's spring-loaded lever, which also allows the plate to be quickly reattached. The cam lock also features a safety catch to prevent the 200LT-PL, or another compatible quick release plate from accidentally disconnecting.

    Cameras, sport optics, or camcorders that are compatible with a 1/4"-20 mount can be connected to the quick release plate before securing it to the pan-and-tilt head. The head can be rotated 360°, tilted 90° forwards or 30° backwards, as well as 90° sideways for portrait orientation. Each of these three movements function independently of each other, have dedicated control handles, and can be locked into place. In addition to integrating the ability to individually lock the movements by twisting each corresponding handle's rubberized grip, the telescoping control handles for both tilt functions can also be retracted while the head is not in use for more convenient storage or transport.

    To promote fast, repeatable, and accurate device positioning, this MH804 3-Way, Pan-and-Tilt Head also includes dedicated angle scales for each movement that are designed for easy visibility. For heavier loads, built-in counterbalance springs help ensure smooth as well as gradual backwards and forwards tilt movements.

Manfrotto 290 reviews

MK290XTA3-3WUS 290 Xtra Aluminum Tripod with 804 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 40.
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 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 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 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy Tripod That Will Last Years Before picking this tripod up, I was very skeptical about spending between $100-200. Amazon sells their brand tripod for $20 and I was thinking why the heck would anyone spend a couple hundred dollars on something that mounts your camera. In my mind I was thinking there is no way the material and labor justifies the cost. Boy was I wrong and there is an old saying that you get what you paid for and this couldn't be more true in the world of tripods. To explain the difference in quality, you would need to find a camera store that has several other brand tripods out for display. Once you start comparing different brands to this one, you'll realize how cheaply made other tripods are. Other tripods felt so cheap that you could break off the legs with a little force. That's not the case with this one as you would need something very powerful that could bend metal. Granted it's made out of aluminum but you couldn't break it with your bare hands if you tried. The build quality is incredible and you never have to worry about $5000 of Camera equipment falling over. The head is extremely versatile as it features 3 different control knobs for pan and tilt action. The pan has a built in compass guide allowing you to know if your at 0 or 360 degrees. The knobs have a lot of resistance so you never feel like the weight of the camera will cause the head to fall over one way. I really only have two complaints about this tripod. It's extremely heavy compared to other tripods coming in at 5.6 lbs. Let's just say if your deciding to take this for a day hike or traveling, it's going to be extremely uncomfortable for long durations. If you arrive at a location and don't have to do more than 30 minutes of walking it's fine. Any longer than that and you'll be wishing you left this at home. The second complaint is that the release lever for the plate that mounts to your camera can get stuck sometimes if you forget which way it's suppose to release. Overall highly recommended tripod.
Date published: 2016-12-17
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.
Date published: 2016-07-04
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!
