Manfrotto MT290XTC3 Carbon Fibre Tripod


The 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 centre column adds flexibility and extends the min-max height range. The tripod comes with a dedicated shoulder bag ensuring comfortable portability at all times.

Key Features:

  • 4 leg angle positions
  • Rock solid aluminum adjustable leg locks
  • Updated metal disc with the Manfrotto logo
  • Special shoulder bag to maximize transportability
  • Outstanding Premium Italian Style dictated by function
