Manfrotto 290 Series in Tripods, Monopods and Other Supports

Manfrotto 290 Series

Manfrotto have announced the launch of the Manfrotto 290 Carbon Fibre tripods. The new tripods are designed to be used by those who are in the market for their first tripod and are looking for a support that Manfrotto say will help them 'progress and improve their skills.'

The Manfrotto 290 Carbon series is designed to be easily transported and carried: 290s are small when folded, but lightweight and very stable when open. For this model, Manfrotto developed a next-generation Carbon tubing that uses optimised fibre angles to provide consistent advantages of torsion/flexion rigidity and stability compared to aluminium tubing.

The 290 series features interchangeable heads and features aluminium leg levers which have adjustable locking tension that can be tightened to ensure wear-proof stability and reliability.

The Manfrotto 290 Carbon range includes a "legs-only" tripod, a monopod and a small selection of ready-to-use complete tripod + head kits, divided into two sizes: the 294 models have larger diameter leg tubes and 3-section tripod legs for extra rigidity and vibration-resistance, while the more compact 293 model has narrower tubes and 4-section legs so it folds to an even more compact size.

Visit the 290 Series section of Manfrotto's website for more information.

Once again a link from an announcement goes to a manufacturers website but then you have to search for produt details and I can't be bothered even if they are there on this occasion

If the product is actually on the website, please can you give a direct link to it if not don't bother with the link at all

Yes this is very clever aiming you to view their products without actually telling you much how the product that you want to view is! Sad
