DetailsThe new 290 Xtra Carbon is the perfect combination of extra-rigidity and lightness: this is the first extra-sturdy carbon tripod dedicated to hobbyist photographers.
The 290 Xtra Carbon is a 3-section tripod, the biggest in the 290 range, with carbon composite leg tubes which increase the tripod’s rigidity and stability, enabling it to easily support heavy equipment. The top casting is made of magnesium, as are the adjustable leg locking levers which can be tightened to counteract any effects of aging and wear. This tripod’s key feature is in its choice of four leg angle positions which maximize shooting creativity. Its rapid center column adds flexibility and extends the min-max height range. The tripod comes with a dedicated shoulder bag ensuring comfortable portability at all times.
The new 290 Xtra Carbon comes in a kit with a center 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 carrying the 200 PL Light plate is fully made of aluminum and features friction control to help photographers make the finest adjustments to their compositions even with heavy equipment.
