Our opinion:

Manfrotto designed the stylish black Compact Action tripod to shoot movies and photos with an entry-level SLR and standard lens but at a fraction of the price of a regular Manfrotto tripod. It is easy to travel with, quick to mount and stable enough for any challenge.

It features easy-to-use ergonomic joystick head, an intuitive scroll-wheel locking mechanism for maximum sturdiness and a comfortable grip, enabling you to capture smoother photos and images effortlessly.

With a bright circular quick-release plate, you can quickly attach this tripod with head to a wide range of devices without having to use any screwdrivers. Close the level above the joystick handle in an instant, and quickly adjust your camera position with the regulating dial and the plate. From now on, expecting nothing less than outstanding stability.

With the photo/movie selector, you can switch from photo to movie mode in just a second, so you never miss out on an amazing photo or video opportunity. This tripod also includes a special adapter that's customised for higher-specification cameras such as the Sony Nex 5R/5T. It increases the surface area of the mountain head, meaning you can benefit from a secure grip and more stability.

When using a compact device with the tripod head in the off-centre position, bear in mind that the minimum distance between the lateral edge of your camera and the 6.35mm thread must be 13mm which ensures optimum performance.

This super compact tripod even includes a quick release plate and free case.
Manufacturer's Description

The new 290 Xtra is the perfect solution in terms of stability for hobbyist photographers.
The 290 Xtra is a 3-section tripod, the biggest in the 290 range, with aluminium leg tubes and special 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 its choice of four leg angle positions which maximize shooting creativity. Its rapid centre column adds flexibility and extends the min-max height range. A new rubber legwarmer guarantees comfortable grip and maximum ergonomics. The tripod comes with a dedicated shoulder bag ensuring comfortable portability at all times.
