DetailsMade for new photographers looking for maximum shooting flexibility. The 290 Light Alu 3-Section Tripod Kit with 494RC2 Ball Head is an innovative tripod with head set that gives you more creative possibilities than ever before. This ingenious, ergonomically designed piece of kit has plenty of standout features, and it’s ultra-practical. A clever compact and lightweight design makes it especially easy to carry.
This versatile tripod with head comes with a practical 3-section stand, made from lightweight and strong aluminium. Leg tubes and top castings make it completely stable when up, while leg locking levers allow you to adjust the tension as needed. This keeps the tripod in full working order, even after heavy use. You simply tighten as needed to keep the stand completely rigid. And the 2 leg angles give you total flexibility to capture new perspectives, including getting close to the ground.
Additional features include the new rubber leg warmers, a feature that gives you even greater grip so you can work calmly under pressure. A smart centre column enables quick and easy height adjustment, and it comes complete with a mini ball head. This camera head is lightweight and compact. It gives you smooth, spherical panning, and quick, precise framing. Also made from aluminium, it’s strong and durable, includes friction control for even greater accuracy while you work. Plus, it has a quick release plate for extra security.
