Manfrotto 294C3 Carbon Fibre Tripod

Manfrotto 294C3 Carbon Fibre Tripod

The Manfrotto 294C3 Carbon Fibre Tripod has been built to be transportable without compromising on stability. The tripod legs on the 294 use a 3-section construction with larger diameter carbon tubing than previous models, in order to maximise camera stability and minimise vibration, ideal for zoom lenses that amplify any camera shake. Two-position leg angle settings make low-angle shooting possible, while a rapid centre column adds flexibility and extends the min-max height range. The disk at the top of the centre column is compatible with any Manfrotto head, ideal for photographers who want to put together a custom support, fine-tuned to their own specific preferences or to the demands of their photographic style.

Aluminium Tubing

The 294 tripod is built to be transportable without compromising on stability. To achieve this, it uses a “next-generation” carbon tubing: an innovative composite tube derived from Manfrotto’s experience in professional supports with optimized fibre angles that provide consistent advantages over aluminium tubing in terms of rigidity, lightness and stability.

Leg Locks

The 294 tripod legs use a 3-section construction with larger diameter carbon composite tubing than the sister 293 version. This makes the 294 more rigid in order to maximize camera stability and minimize vibration, so it's ideal for zoom lenses that amplify any camera shake. Durable tension-adjustable aluminium leg locks can be tightened to suit your preference and to counteract any effects of wear and aging, keeping the tripod fully functional throughout its long life.

Two-position leg angle settings make low-angle shooting possible, while a rapid centre column adds flexibility and extends the min-max height range.
