Manfrotto launches the 290 series a brand new range of supports for the growing number of amateurs and keen hobbyists who want to improve their images and photographic skill. The number of people with an interest in photography grows daily and Manfrotto recognises the needs of those looking to invest in a versatile support to help them develop their talent.

The 290 series is a brand new family of tripod and monopods inspired by Manfrotto’s original, famous 190 series. Building on the success of the 190 series, the purpose of the 290 series is primarily to meet the needs of both amateur and keen hobbyist photographers and offers a versatile and highly robust support system.

The 290 series is designed to be a long-lasting set of tools and features a removable head, so that as a photographer’s skill grows the equipment can be upgraded- a testament to cost efficiency. Historically the best technology has only been accessible to professionals however now both high quality and first class performance are available in one unique product.

The 290 series is a very competitive range with features that embody semi-professional elements as well as added value extras such as the removable head, aluminium locking clamps, a choice of two leg setting angles, an anti-shock collar and a column with an anti rotation system. These features contribute to the overall robust feel of the 290 series, and a steadfastness usually associated with higher-end professional products.

The range offers various popular kits and sizes, meaning there is an option for everyone and with several tripods, monopods and kits that are both light weight and compact, these supports are very much suited to travelling.

It integrates the essential features and uses the materials needed to ensure precision, stability and high-performance whilst ensuring easy operation and transportation. The result is a truly unique combination that meets this new group of photographers’ demands for a cost effective support that helps improve their skills and embrace their passion. The 290 series breaks the mould.
