The perfect tripod with head set for new photographers. The 290 Xtra Aluminium 3-Section Tripod Kit with Ball Head has everything you need in one handy bag. Designed to professional standards, this smart tripod with head kit won’t let you down, even during the most challenging situations. And it’s built to last. Fashioned from hard-wearing but lightweight aluminium, it won’t be a chore to carry, and it’s strong when up.

The stand comes in 3-sections, with aluminium leg tubes and a specially designed, high-performance top casting that works under pressure, and delivers maximum stability whatever the shoot demands. Added aluminium leg locks keep everything firmly in place and can be adjusted as needed to increase tension, and this function works even after heavy use, extending the stand’s lifespan longer. Not only that, it’s super easy to use too. 4 leg angle positions give you freedom to move, and a centre column allows you to extend your height range.

Other great features include rubber leg warmers to give you ultimate grip whatever the weather, and a centre ball head. This makes it a full tripod with head set, and the ball head has a great spherical movement, plus a quick release plate. So you’ll be able to glide from one angle to the next while you work, and set up speedily. That way, you’ll be able to capture new frames quickly and effectively. And it comes with its very own made-to-measure shoulder bag, just to make life even easier.
