The new 290 Xtra Carbon is the perfect combination of extreme stiffness and light weight: it is the first ultra-rigid carbon tripod dedicated to amateur photographers.
The 290 Xtra is a 3-section tripod, the largest in the 290 range, featuring aluminum leg tubes and aluminum top molding to improve rigidity, durability and performance.
The aluminum leg locking handles are adjustable in tension and can therefore be tightened to counteract the effects of wear and loads, making the tripod perfectly operational throughout its long service life.
The main feature of the tripod is the possibility to choose between 4 possible positions for the angle between the legs, which maximizes creativity when shooting.
Its quick center column increases the flexibility of the tripod by extending the min-max height range.
The tripod is sold with a dedicated shoulder bag, which guarantees a comfortable transport at all times.
The new 290 Xtra Carbon is sold in a kit that also includes the new version of the 804 3D photo-swivel with quick release plate, special attention has been paid to its compactness and its transportability.
This patented ball joint ensures precise framing and robust support for medium-weight photos and video equipment.
The main feature of this new ball joint is its retractable handles that can fold down when not in use, making it even more compact and improves portability.
The redesigned ergonomic handles are made of special rubber for a better grip. The 3D patella is made of Adapto, an extremely lightweight polymer that makes the ball joint lightweight while guaranteeing an important mechanical strength for a robust support.
