The Manfrotto 294 Carbon Fiber Tripod with 496RC2 Ball Head is a lightweight support system for DSLR cameras with a maximum height of 70.5" and a load capacity of 11 lb. This 294 kit uses a "next-generation" carbon tubing: an innovative composite tube with optimized fiber angles that provide consistent advantages over aluminum alloy tubing in terms of rigidity, lightness, and stability.
The three-section construction with larger diameter carbon tubing than its sister 293 version 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. The 294 tripod features leg locks that were redesigned for better ergonomics. Two-position leg angle settings make low-angle shooting possible, and a rapid center column adds flexibility and extends the height range.
Manfrotto MHXPRO-BHQ2 XPRO Ball Head
Accurately adjust your camera position with the MHXPRO-BHQ2 XPRO Ball Head from Manfrotto. Able to hold up to 22 lb, the 1.1 lb ball head is strong enough for most applications and ideally suited for an equally sturdy tripod. The XPRO lets you fine-tune your adjustments, thanks to separate knobs for both the ball and the 360° panning as well as a friction control knob for more exacting placement.
The 200PL quick-release clamp and plate allow for quick camera attachment and removal, and two bubble levels let you adjust your camera so the horizon is level. A numbered scale around the base of the head makes repeating exact pans an easy task.
