Review of the 290 XTA 3-Way Kit:

This has outstanding legs. They are very small, compact, yet they are so sturdy and can get exceptionally tall! I own several Manfrotto tripods and I have used many in the bast, and I am telling you that these are my favorite tripod legs I have ever used hands down!

The 3 way head is okay. Its built well and will probably last a long time, mostly metal and strong plastic. The only thing is, when you are adjusting the angles, its kinda jerky and hard to get in the right spot. Unlike my other, nice, fully metal Manfrotto tripod heads that smoothly adjust the angles. Its bearable, but I found it to me a little annoying on architectural shoots, as it was hard to get my "lines straight." Also it only has one bubble for leveling which I found made it even harder to level (vs a 2 bubble leveling system. A bubble for each plane of axes.) The plus side to the single... Read more
I'm amazed with this tripod, with its sturdy design, great height, and angle indicators. However, there are a few minor hiccups, mainly with the quick release only fitting one way and tilt (altitude) axis being so narrow.

The legs are very sturdy and don't easily move from outside forces providing a very steady mount. While I like the 4 leg angle positions, spaced 22.5 apart, and the fact that the center column raises a lot to almost lay the tripod on ground level, it's not suitable for macrophotography (I expected this as there are dedicated macro tripods) short of the subject already being raised on, say, the top of a box.

The tripod is also a bit taller than I expected, but that's a good thing as I was looking for something tall. Fully extended, with the head on top and camera mounted on it, it's about 74 inches tall where the camera sensor is when level. By lifting the tripod up from about a foot above the bottom in this fashion, for which the tripod is... Read more
I was originally looking to get a 3001 leg set after borrowing them from a buddy and being really impressed, but apparently that model is no longer offered. The 290 xtra legs have a decent fit, finish and feel to them plus are reasonably light. The problem is that these aren't as sturdy as the 3001 so you get vibrations that move up through the legs, creating wiggle and vibration in whatever you are looking at (in my case through a spotting scope). If you let them sit for a few seconds they settle down but as soon as you touch your optic again the whole thing is back to wiggling. Also they only have one set screw to lock the head vs three per the spec that came with the Manfrotto head I ordered, so when you properly tighten down that one screw it puts uneven torque on the head plate which then creates substantial drag on the pan function. For such great reviews and the $140 sticker price for legs alone I really expected more, in the end I'm probably going to be looking for a set... Read more
