The new 290 Light is the first sturdy support tripod of the 290 collection dedicated to hobbyist photographers that is also easy to carry.
The 290 Light is a 3-section tripod, the smallest in the 290 range, featuring aluminium leg tubes and aluminium top casting enhancing rigidity, durability and performance. Its aluminium 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 three-way photo head specifically designed for compactness and transportability, while also allowing precise framing and solid support of medium-heavy camera equipment. The head's distinguishing feature is its unique handle-folding mechanism for when the head is not in use. The three-way head is made of Adapto, a special lightweight polymer which keeps it extremely lightweight while guaranteeing high mechanical resistance for sturdy support.
