Manfrotto MK290XTA3 290 Xtra Aluminum Tripod with Ball Head

The Manfrotto MK290XTA3-BHUS 290 Xtra Aluminum Tripod with Ball Head extends from 15.7" to a maximum height of 66.9". It weighs 4.9 lb and can hold up to 15.47/26/ lb of gear. The tripod's 3-section legs have flip locks to individually change the height of each leg. The locks are tension-adjustable to help maintain a tight lock over the tripod's lifespan. Four leg angles allow you to position the tripod in a variety of ways. A rubber grip on one of the legs aids in carrying the tripod, and rubber feet keep it stable on slippery surfaces. Included with the tripod is a shoulder bag for added comfort and protection during transport.

The included 496RC2 Compact Ball Head is constructed of die-cast aluminum, has a single repositionable locking lever, ±90° tilt movement, plus a friction control for precise positioning. An RC2 quick release plate allows for fast and easy camera attachment
