The Manfrotto MK290DUA3-BHUS 290 Dual Aluminum Tripod is a versatile support featuring a 90° center column for shooting tabletop, low-angle, or macro photography. It extends from just 2.4" above the ground to 68.1" high. The tripod weighs 4.1 lb and can hold up to 11 lb worth of gear. Its 3-sections legs have tension-adjustable flip locks to individually adjust each leg's height. Four locking leg angles enable you to place the tripod in a variety of positions. 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 the 496RC2 Compact Ball Head with an RC2 quick-release plate. The head is constructed of die-cast aluminum and has a single repositionable locking lever, ±90° tilt movement, plus a friction control for precise positioning. A safety lock on the ball head prevents your camera from accidentally detaching from the head.
