3 Section Legs

The Manfrotto 290 Dual Tripod features a 3 section leg design constructed from Aluminium to give it strength and durability.

Multi Angle Leg Positions

It features 4 leg angles that can be independently set for each leg, enabling you to fine-tune the camera's position, especially on uneven or sloping surfaces. Keeping the tripod legs wide open at 88° allows you to get extremely low to the ground, enabling you to shoot macro pictures with ease.

Horizontal Centre Column Mechanism

The 290 is equipped with a patented centre column mechanism that equips you with the ability you to shift the centre column from vertical to a horizontal 90° position in a snap. The unique design of this mechanism enhances versatility, making it a breeze to shoot top down, flat-lay style images with maximum stability and truly parallel perspectives.

3-Way Pan Head

The Manfrotto MH804 is a 3-way pan head with independent pan and tilt locks for fuss-free camera positioning and compositional fine-tuning. A built-in spring assists with the tilting motion of the head, compensating for heavier lenses and cameras with off-centre loads. Its unique retractable handle design reduces the tripod head footprint, making it more compact and easier to store and transport. The bubble level indicator helps you align the camera to the horizon ensuring your framing is straight and true.

Quick Release Plate

The quick release plate allows you to remove your camera from the tripod quickly and easily. Additional quick release plates (sold separately) can be attached to lenses or additional camera bodies for quick interchange during a shoot. One 200LT-PL quick-release plate is included in the bundle.
