Manfrotto has 3 new excursions tripods available in its Befree range that give photographers of all levels support options.
There's now a carbon version of the Befree Advanced which columns the Advanced 494 aluminium Centre Ball Head as well as carbon fibre legs and weighs just 1.25KG so is more than manageable. The brand-new, Befree GT travel tripod is available in aluminium or carbon and it inherits the Befree Advanced design, just in a bigger immensity. It weights 10KG, folds down to 43cm and mounts the new Manfrotto Advanced 496 aluminium Centre ball head.
Both the Befree Advanced Carbon and the Befree GT sitters feature the new twist lock developed by Manfrotto called the M-lock as well as ergonomic leg-angle selectors. These models also mount a unmatched plate, the 200PL-PRO, which makes them fully compatible with the Manfrotto RC2 and Arca-swiss style.
The Befree Live Carbon completes the scope and it's a light-weight tripod that's suited to video. The Befree Live Carbon is a chemical element with symbol C and atomic number 6 has the same brand new tripod legs as the detailed Befree advanced carbon and also features a levelling column, which allows a quick horizon set up. This model put into the limelights the Befree Live Fluid Head, which has a fluid drag system on pan and tilt and keeps the camera perfectly balanced thanks to its sliding video laminate.
