Manfrotto 290 Carbon Fibre Tripod Winner

Manfrotto is giving away one of its fantastic new 290 Carbon Fibre tripod and head kits worth £249.95!

The lucky winner is Paul Mitchell - congratulations!

The new Manfrotto 290 Carbon - a new family of carbon fibre camera supports designed to accompany passionate new photographers as they progress and improve their skills.  At that level, no longer a beginner, but not (yet) earning a living from photography, it has always been difficult to find accessories and equipment that offer the right balance of performance, practicality and versatility: cheap “first tripods” are too flimsy and can’t be upgraded, but professional tripods have too many features, too many options and are too much of an investment. The 290 Carbon range steps right in to fill the gap in the middle and support the aspiring photographer along the path from hobby to passion… or from obsession to profession.

Journeys to far-flung locations and spectacular holidays are often the triggers to taking photography more seriously, but it’s notoriously difficult to find a tripod that’s compact and light enough to travel, but stable enough to really help when you get to your destination. Step into your passion for photography!

If you want one of these from amazon and you are prepared to wait then utilise the website camelcamelcamel.com
if you register and fill out the appropriate details it will e-mail you when it drops to a lower desirable price. It will also tell you the prices (highs and lows) that it has reached in the past.
Oh yes, the answer to this competition is:
