The Manfrotto Befree Advanced aluminium tripod kit includes a versatile ball head that can support up to 8kg, perfect for a huge range of camera gear. It has independent controls for ball lock, panning, and friction feel so you can really fine-tune your framing. The legs have fast and secure twist locks that make for quick set-up and also allow the tripod to fold down small for easy transport, perfect for travel.

Ball Head with 9kg Maximum Payload

The Manfrotto Befree Advanced tripod includes a versatile 494 centre ball head with separate controls for ball lock, 360° panning, and friction feel.  This unique quick release ball head accommodates both Arca-Swiss and Manfrotto’s RC2 camera plates for maximum compatibility.

4 Section Legs with Twist Locks

With 4-section legs, the Be Free Advanced tripod is compact, folding down to just 40cm. It has an impressive 150cm maximum height, but also allows you to shoot from as low as 40cm for great framing flexibility. The M-Lock twist locks provide fast and easy set-up with a secure hold.

Independent Leg Angles

Each leg angle can be adjusted independently from 22°, 54° or 89°, allowing you to set up easily on uneven terrain. The angle selectors are ergonomically positioned, so you can change your leg angles quickly without fuss. This means you spend less time setting up and more time taking photos.

Easy Link for Accessories

The top casting of the tripod features an Easy Link connector, which can be used to attach additional accessories, like lights or reflectors. This helps take the weight off your camera, leaving you with more creative options and freedom.

Lightweight and Sturdy Aluminium Design

Made from aluminium alloy, the Manfrotto Befree Advanced tripod is both lightweight and durable, able to withstand daily use and travel like a champ. For additional stability, you can hang a weight or your camera bag from the included ballast loop, making it an even more rock-solid support system.

Carry Bag Included

To make life even easier, the BeFree tripod kit comes with a padded bag for storage and transport. This makes it an excellent and convenient option for travellers or enthusiasts that want a versatile and portable tripod that comes with all the bells and whistles.
