From Manfrotto: Manfrotto announces the 290 Carbon Fibre Series
Manfrotto have just announced the launch of 290 Carbon - a new family of carbon fibre camera supports 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 accessories and equipment that offer the right balance of performance, practicality and versatility: cheap "first tripods" are too flimsy and can't be upgraded, but professional tripods have too many features, too many options and are too much of an investment. The 290 Carbon range steps right in to fill the gap in the middle and support the aspiring photographer along the path from hobby to passion... or from obsession to profession.
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 tripod that's compact and light enough to travel, but stable enough to really help when you get to your destination.
Step into your passion for photography! KEY BENEFITS
- Transportable, without any sacrifice in camera stability
- Durable and built for heavy-duty use, without any reduction in strength or performance over time
- Optimizable to help get great results across all photographic styles
