90° Centre Column
The tripod features a patented centre column mechanism which allows it to be extended up vertically like a traditional tripod but also horizontally to unlock a completely unique perspective. Take full advantage of the horizontal positioning of the column to fill your frame with your subject for close-up macro images and product shots. The ability to shoot from above or super-low to the ground make it easy to capture creative landscape and nightscape imagery.
Multiple Leg Angles
The 3 section tripod legs can be independently opened to any of the 4 pre-set angles (25°, 46°, 66° or 88°) allowing you to stabilise your camera on uneven terrain. With the legs set at 88° you can shoot from near ground level to capture stunning, low angle perspectives.
Flip Leg Locks
The sections of all three legs are equipped with a flip style lock that can be locked or unlocked instantly, letting you adjust the camera position without losing focus on your shot. The tension-adjustable leg-locking levers ensure a consistently tight lock even after long-term repeated use.
The Manfrotto 290 (MK290DUA3) is an incredibly versatile set of tripod legs that when combined with the extensive range of Manfrotto tripod heads provides a flexible support solution that is sturdy and quick to setup.
