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. Its bright orange quick release plate is custom shaped to fit the Sony a7 camera series for a snug and secure fit.

8kg 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. It can support up to a hefty 8kg, perfect for a range of cameras and accessory attachments like lighting, audio, and more.

Custom Quick Release Plate for Sony Cameras

It’s hard to miss the bright orange quick release plate sitting on top of the ball head. It’s been custom shaped to wrap securely around the front of Sony a9 or a7 series cameras for a snug and secure fit that’s less prone to twisting. It’s also compatible with both Arca-Swiss and Manfrotto RC2 clamps, giving you the freedom to easily switch between different tripods and accessories.

4 Section Legs with Flip 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. Flip locks make set-up quick and easy so you can get to work right away.

Independent Leg Angles

Each leg angle is independently adjustable 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 has one of Manfrotto’s Easy Link connectors. This handy little feature can be used to attach additional accessories, like lights, audio, 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 hook, making it an even more rock-solid support system.

Carry Bag Included

To make life even easier, the BeFree tripod kit comes with a carry 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.
