Manfrotto 290 overview

  • 1Description

The Manfrotto MK290XTC3-BHUS 290 Xtra Carbon Fiber Tripod with Ball Head extends from 13.8" to a maximum height of 70.7". It weighs 4.3 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.

The included 496RC2 Compact Ball Head is constructed of die-cast aluminum, has a single repositionable locking lever, ±90° tilt movement, plus a friction control for precise positioning. An RC2 quick-release plate allows for fast and easy camera attachment.

  • 496RC2 Compact Ball Head with 200PL-14 Quick Release Plate

    This 496RC2 Compact Ball Head from Manfrotto features an integrated RC2 quick release cam lock and a 200PL-14 Quick Release Plate. Compatible quick release plates can be removed from the head by pulling the cam lock's spring-loaded lever, which also allows the plate to be instantly reattached. The cam lock also features a safety catch to prevent a compatible quick release plate from accidentally disconnecting.

    The 496RC2 Compact Ball Head with 200PL-14 Quick Release Plate has a load capacity of 13.2 lb and can be attached to tripods or other support systems that feature a 3/8"-16 mount. By loosening the 496RC2's locking knob, its ball-and-socket joint can be quickly swiveled, angled, fully tilted, or returned to its upright position. An additional knob opposite the locking knob can be rotated to apply tension control to the ball-and-socket joint's movements.

    Cameras or accessories that are compatible with a 1/4"-20 mount can be connected to the 200PL-14 quick release plate, which measures 1.7 x 2.1 x 0.4" and has a rubberized, non-slip surface.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tripod! This Manfrotto tripod matches up nicely with my Canon 6D and Sigma 150-600 mm lens (total weight 6.5 lbs). It is well made and provides great stability. This lightweight tripod comes with a carrying case for carrying it into the field for quick set-up when desired.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good quality tripod so far so good, but still need some time to test it.
Date published: 2016-04-04
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super Light and great upgrade from 190proxb I finally upgraded my Manfrotto proxb190 this sheds a whole 1lb or so off my back.� The only thing I would have liked was a better ball head option, the ballhead provided seems a bit okay, maybe down the line might not hold as well.
Date published: 2018-03-12
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sturdy, tall, and heavy It is good for a tall guy to use with car. Too heavy and too long to put into backpack.
Date published: 2018-03-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy this Tripod This tripod is easy to set up and rock solid for steadying my Olympus camera.
