The Manfrotto 290 XTRA 3-section tripod with MH804 head features sturdy tubular aluminium legs and a special top casting to enhance rigidity, durability and performance. Perfect for long exposures and time-lapse sequences, its 3-way head ensures fast, easy adjustment for precise framing.
Four Pre-set Leg Angles
A key feature of the tripod is the choice of four leg angles which can be set independently to enable easier positioning of the tripod over uneven surfaces. This is combined with leg-end rubber tips to greatly enhance stability, providing additional traction on slippery surfaces.
Flip-Lock Leg Design
To counteract wear and tear, tension adjustable leg-locking levers ensure a consistently tight lock of each leg over the entire life-span of the tripod. The flip lock design permits instant release of the leg sections using a single hand, thereby reducing set-up time and ensuring you don’t miss that crucial moment.
Adjustable Centre Column
A rapid centre column adds flexibility and allows fast, precise fine-tuning of the tripod height for superior framing accuracy.
Rubber Hand Grip
For convenient portability, one of the legs features a comfortable rubber grip for confidence inspiring handling manoeuvrability.
The MH804 three-way Pan/Tilt Photo Head incorporates several innovative features. The patented head design has a unique spring feature to assist in the tilt motion of the head and compensates for heavy off-centre camera equipment.
3-way rotational movement on each axis - panoramic, front tilt and side tilt, with independent locking mechanism ensures precise framing.
Compact, Lightweight Design
Crafted with Adapto, a light weight ultra-durable technical polymer, the head features a low weight and compact profile while maintaining sturdy support and high mechanical resistance. Retractable levers that can be folded when not in use, further contribute to the compactness and portability of the head. The ergonomically designed handles are made with special grip-increasing rubber.
Built-in Bubble Level
The top of the head features a small level bubble that helps level the camera axis.
Includes Quick Release Plate
A quick-release plate permits quickly attaching and removing the camera from the head.
Customised Carry Bag
Included with the tripod and head is a shoulder bag for convenient portability, protection and storage.
The Manfrotto 290 Xtra Tripod and MH804 Head are designed to provide stable support and perfect framing. A must-have combination for passionate hobbyists and budding photographers.
