ManfrottoManfrotto 290 carbon fiber tripod series : Manfrotto has just announced the launch of the Manfrotto 290 Carbon fiber tripod series - a new family of carbon fiber tripods designed to accompany passionate new photographers as they progress and improve their skills. At that level, no longer a beginner, but not (yet) earning a living from photography, it has always been difficult to find digital camera accessories and equipment that offer the right balance of performance, practicality and versatility. Many aspiring photographers find cheap “first tripods” are too flimsy and can’t be upgraded and that professional tripods have too many features, too many options and are too much of an investment.

Journeys to far-flung locations and spectacular holidays are often the triggers to taking photography more seriously, but it’s notoriously difficult to find a camera tripod that’s compact and light enough to travel with, but stable enough to prove effective when you get to your destination. The new Manfrotto 290 Carbon fiber tripod series is designed to be easily transported and carried: Manfrotto 290 tripods are small when folded, but lightweight and very stable when open. For this model, Manfrotto developed a next- generation Carbon fiber tubing: an innovative composite tube ideally suited to the needs of developing photographers, which draws on Manfrotto’s professional experience. It uses optimised fiber angles to provide consistent advantages of torsion/flexion rigidity and stability compared to aluminium tubing; advantages that have made the carbon fiber tripod so understandably popular among professionals.

As photographers evolve and experiment with challenging genres such as macro, architectural, portrait, sports and wildlife photography, they find that each technique makes different and very specific demands of their camera and support equipment. Camera tripods that seemed ideal to start with can quickly become limiting. Not the Manfrotto 290 Carbon fiber tripod: even the kit tripods have pro-inspired interchangeable heads, so a Manfrotto Carbon fiber tripod can adapt to the photographer’s requirements and be altered to suit any style of photography.

The Manfrotto 290 carbon fiber tripod range is built to last. Its solid and strong aluminium leg levers have adjustable locking tension that can be tightened to ensure wear-proof stability and reliability. And with rugged aluminium castings, it’s almost certain to outlive the camera it was bought to support. Manfrotto has made sure that the 290 Carbons would give photographers the positioning flexibility and freedom to express creative ideas to the full. The Italian designers carefully fine-tuned the Manfrotto carbon tripod build and features to provide a good min-max height range and quick leg angle selectors, so you can shoot in tight spaces, from high or low vantage points.

The Manfrotto carbon fiber tripod 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.
