The 290 Light Series MK290LTA3-3W Kit comprises of a 290 light-weight aluminium tripod and a compact three-way photo head (. The ultra-light weight and compact combination is specifically designed for ease of transportation and storage.
3-Section D-Shaped Aluminium Legs
The aluminium construction of the leg tubes combined with a unique ‘3-faceted D-shaped’ cross-section design offers excellent torsional rigidity and strength for tack-sharp results.
Two-Position Leg Angles
The tripod legs can be spread independently and locked at two different positions (23° and 51°) to enable easier positioning of the tripod over uneven surfaces. This is combined with leg-end rubber tips to greatly enhance stability by providing additional traction on slippery surfaces.
Tension-Adjustable Leg Locking Levers
To counteract wear and tear with time, 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.
An anti-shock rubber collar at the top of the centre column helps to dampen vibrations and protects your camera from accidental damage due to impact in case the centre column is accidently left unlocked and the camera drops.
Height Adjustable Three-Faced Centre Column
The height adjustable centre column adds flexibility by extending the minimum-maximum height range. The 3-faced-design column prevents camera from swivelling off-axis to ensure increased accuracy and reliability.
Aluminium Top Casting for rigidity, durability and consistent performance. Rubber Grip one of the legs ensures comfortable and confidence inspiring handling manoeuvrability.
Foldable 3-Way Head
The Manfrotto compact 3-Way Head allows 3-way rotational movement - front tilt, side tilt and panning with independent locking mechanisms for each of the three axes, providing the freedom to accurately compose images.
Ultra Compact Design
The head is specifically designed to maximise compactness to enhance ease of carrying and storage. The innovative design allows the levers to be folded when not in use, so as to run parallel to the head, considerably reducing the dimensions of the head for convenient packing, storage and portability.
Further complementing the compactness is the revolutionary material used for the construction of the head. 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.
Quick Release System with Rapid Connect Plate
The head features a Quick Release system for quickly attaching or removing a camera through an included 200LT-PL Quick Release Plate. The quick release plate includes an additional safety system that helps to prevent an accidental detaching of the camera from the head.
Ergonomically Designed Handles are made with special grip-increasing rubber for better controls even with wet or cold fingers. 3/8” Universal Attachment: The head attaches to the tripod through 3/8” female threads and can be interchanged with other heads.
The compact and lightweight design of the Manfrotto MK290LTA3-3WKit makes the combination easy to carry and ideal for hobbyists and travellers with point-and-shoot and light-weight compact DSLRs.
