Made with hobbyist photographers in mind, Manfrotto's 290 Light is the smallest tripod in the 290 range. This three-section tripod features aluminum leg tubes and aluminum top casting for enhanced rigidity, durability and performance. Its aluminum leg-locking levers are tension-adjustable, so they can be tightened to counteract any effects of aging or wear, keeping the tripod fully functional throughout its long lifespan. Two leg angle position settings enable low-angle shooting, and a rapid centre column adds flexibility extending the min-max height range. A new rubber legwarmer guarantees comfortable grip and maximum ergonomics.

The 290 Light comes as a kit with a mini ball head specifically designed for compactness and transportability. Its broad, spherical movement together with its quick release plate mechanism enable rapid, easy framing. The head is fully made of aluminum and features friction control to help photographers make the finest adjustments to their compositions even with heavy equipment.

  • Two leg angle positions
  • Rock solid aluminum adjustable leg locks
  • New rubber legwarmer to increase the grip
