The new 290 Dual is a combination of sturdiness and innovative high-end technical features. It is the ideal solution to enable hobbyist photographers to get extremely creative on their shoots.
The 290 Dual is a 3-section tripod featuring aluminium leg tubes and top casting enhancing rigidity, durability and performance. Its aluminium leg locking levers are tension-adjustable, so they can be tightened to counteract any effects of aging and wear, keeping the tripod fully functional throughout its long lifespan.
This tripod’s key feature is the patented 90° centre column mechanism, which allows the column to be extended vertically as normal, or horizontally, effortlessly opening up a wide range of framing options. This makes it an extremely versatile tripod, suitable for a wide range of photography applications. Moreover its choice of four leg angle positions maximize shooting creativity, getting right down to ground level. A new rubber legwarmer guarantees comfortable grip and maximum ergonomics.
The new 290 Dual comes in a kit with the new updated 804 three-way photo head with quick release plate, specifically designed for compactness and transportability. This patented head ensures precise framing and solid support of medium-heavy camera equipment. The key feature of this new head is its retractable levers which fold away when not in use, making it more compact for easier portability. Its newly-designed ergonomic handles are made of special, grip-increasing rubber. The three-way head is made of Adapto, a lightweight polymer which keeps weight low while ensuring high mechanical resistance for sturdy support.
