The new 290 Xtra is the perfect solution in terms of stability for hobbyist photographers.
The 290 Xtra is a 3-section tripod, the biggest in the 290 range, with aluminum leg tubes and special top casting enhancing rigidity, durability and performance. Its aluminum leg-locking levers are tension-adjustable, so they can be tightened to counteract any effects of aging and wear, keeping the tripod fully functional throughout its long lifespan. This tripod's key feature is its choice of four leg angle positions which maximize shooting creativity. Its rapid centre column adds flexibility and extends the min-max height range. A new rubber legwarmer guarantees comfortable grip and maximum ergonomics. The tripod comes with a dedicated shoulder bag ensuring comfortable portability at all times.
The 290 Xtra comes in a kit with a lightweight aluminum fluid head with pan bar and quick release camera plate complete with secondary security. It features smooth, fluid movement, pan and tilt locks. This head is ideal for cameras up to 8.82 lbs. (4 kg) in weight.
