    Manfrotto 290 Reviews

    290 Aluminum Monopod is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 29.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Monopod!! I love this monopod! It replaces my Manfrotto 681B, which I've work with for close to 30 years. It is much lighter and narrower, then my 681, but somehow more stable. I have just ordered the 234RC head for it. I am the staff photographer for many major theatre's in the LA area, which means navigating through rows of seats during a shoot. My handheld days are long gone, so this is vital for me. I was constantly clunking into seats which has not happened once with the 290. It really is an extension of my body. I'm anxious to use the head which I've never used on a monopod. A great tool at a great price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Monopod! I was looking for a well made monopod but did not want to spend too much. This item is a perfect fit for me!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made and easy to use. I use this monopod for taking pictures of birds. It's awesome - easy to use, portable and well made. I will never go back to a tripod.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little monopod I broke my 681b and needed a new one. This one holds as much, weighs less and collapses smaller. The only negative is the rubber grip may spin when tightning to lens or camera. Other than that, it is a great piece of equipment. I am thinking of buying another for a spare.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and Solid This product opens easily and locks into place very solidly. When collapsed it is light and easy to carry around.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Have for anyone with a camera I've always relied on controlling my breathing and steadiness, but with this I can go all out with my images and photo taking abilities

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Gimbals I mount my Crane Gimbal to this. After about 5-10 min, the gimbal, while easy hand hold, gets very heavy fast. This not only always you use the ground to lose the weight, but it also gets great gimbals shots, both over head and horizontally. I was in the pew at a wedding. this allowed me to stick the gimbal and GX85 MFT camera just out in the isle to get a dreamy shot of the bride walking down the isle w/o being totally obnoxious. Just as good, I use the Foto4easy Black Nylon Waist Pouch Bag to hold the monopod at the hip for maximum flexibility without all the weight.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful monopod!! I took the mono pod to Alaska many wildlife Ocean shots scenic views and glaciers. The manfrotto mono pod responded great and worked wonderfully for a quick action shots.

    question

    Accepts Manfrotto498RC2?Wonders if this question has already been answered,,,,sorry if I missed.
    Asked by: John
    yes, i have the 498rc2 head and it fits perfectly. i used this setup on a recent trip to South Africa and it was the best investment i made. if you have the money go for the carbon fiber version, but i felt the aluminium to be equally good, if you are not going to be using a very heavy lense

    question

    Anyone knows if this tripod has removable 3/8 foot to allow for after-market video feet?
    Asked by: Tuyen N.
    No, the bottom of this monopod is not threaded. The rubber foot is pressed into place.

    question

    How does the Manfrotto 234RC monopod head mate up to this monopod? It appears the mounting plate is as large in diameter as the 290 Xtra tripod.
    Asked by: Michael F.
    It matches up perfectly. This is the combination I have and I've been very happy with it.
