Manfrotto 290 overview

  • 1Description

The Manfrotto MT290XTC3US 290 Xtra Carbon Fiber Tripod extends from 12" to a maximum height of 65.2". It weighs 4.4 lb and can hold up to 11 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. Included with the tripod is a shoulder bag for added comfort and protection during transport.

    Manfrotto 290 reviews

    MT290XTC3US 290 Xtra Carbon Fiber Tripod is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good tripod, but has one surprising quality control flaw. I've been using Manfrotto tripods for years. This one is to replace an aging aluminum Manfrotto tripod. Everything works as expected. However, there is one very surprising quality control flaw. The tripod includes a tool for you to adjust the tightness of the flip-lock by turning the hex nut. The thread that the nut goes onto is too long. When the leg sections are extended (pulled out) and you close the 3 legs, it is possible for the thread to hit the back of the neighboring leg, causing slight abrasion damage. My solution is to cap the nut using little silicone end-caps.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Defective product & quality control is bad customer service B&H is doing their job, but Manfrotto is uncharacteristically slipping gears, because the Manfrotto 290 XTRA 3 - SEC Carbon Tripod will not secure and tighten as specifically instructed per Manfrotto instructions. This is not just a customer complaint, because thousands of dollars rest on this Manfrotto equipment functioning correctly as intended. The locking screw does not secure to the tripod head & breaks loose.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very sturdy, slighly heavy. Very sturdy, but somewhat on the heavy side. Great tripod overall, would recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tripod! I use this tripod in the field here in Colorado and it really a pleasure, light and sturdy. I was fun to order at the superstore in Manhattan.
