DetailsTechnologically advanced, made to last and high functioning. The 290 Dual Aluminium 3-Section Tripod Kit with 496RC2 Ball Head is a must-have for any hobbyist photographer looking for a hardwearing, innovative, and fully capable tripod with head for any situation. Designed to give you maximum scope for creative shooting, while being completely intuitive to use, this smart set includes all the essentials so you’ll be good to go as soon as you open the case.
Great features include a 3-section tripod design, which makes it easy to collapse and transport, but thanks to its aluminium leg tubes and leg locking levers, it’s totally rigid when up. To add to its stability, these leg locking levers are tension adjustable, meaning you can tighten them to combat signs of wear and tear, lengthening this clever tripod’s lifespan even further. The 90° centre column mechanism gives you the scope to extend vertically or horizontally to capture new perspectives, while 4 leg angles enable you to shoot close to the ground if the shoot demands it.
Extra features that make this tripod with head set special include the new rubber leg warmers, designed to keep the stand even steadier and give you a comfortable grip. Plus, it comes with an innovative centre ball head making it especially compact and easy to transport. It also gives you smooth movement while you work, and quick, accurate framing control. It’s made from 100% aluminium for extra durability, and has clever friction control, so you can even tune heavy equipment to the finest detail.
