Manfrotto MKBFRA4RD-BH overview

  • 1Description

The red BeFree Color Aluminum Travel Tripod from Manfrotto is a compact, lightweight, and sturdy camera support designed to accompany you from the trail to the studio and anywhere in-between.

Featuring a lightweight aluminum construction, the BeFree Color maintains durability and rigidity despite its 4-section design and 3.1 lb frame. Capable of reaching heights comfortable for most shooters, the tripod can be set to any position ranging between its minimum height of 13.4" and its maximum height of 56.7". The 4-section, inverted legs, travel-style design allows the tripod to collapse down to just 16.1" in length for storage or transport and includes a fitted carrying case to make carrying even easier.

Included with the tripod is a single action ball head which, along with the legs, allows the entire kit to support up to 8.8 lb, enough for many DSLRs, camcorders, mirrorless, and compact cameras. The head utilizes a Manfrotto 200LT-PL quick release plate, which features a 1/4"-20 screw compatible with most cameras.

The BeFree Color series has improved on previous models with a few new additions worth noting, the first of which are redesigned rubber feet that provide a more secure grip on almost any terrain. A ballast hook has also been added to the bottom of the center column to allow users to add weight to the tripod to increase stability and lower its center of gravity. Additionally, modern graphics and colored paint have been added to the BeFree Color's design to update the overall look and feel of the tripod.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect size/weight for travel with a few minor drawbacks Pro: - Lightweight & Compact. Perfect for travel. - Doesn't look/feel cheap. - Come with quick release plate that compatible with Manfrotto 323 RC2 System Quick Release Adapter with 200PL-14 Plate. - Come with a nice-looking bag. Con: - Legs doesn't lock when folded. So when carrying the tripod around, you either have to put it in the bag or hold it from underneath. - The strap on the bag is very short.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small, Lightweight and compact...perfect for any situation I am a run and gun photographer, constantly on the move. This tripod fits into my workflow perfectly. It is small, lightweight and compact. I am able to carry all my gear in one bag. That is important to me. Also the tripod expands quickly to the height I need. I am so happy with the purchase, especially that it comes in different colors to match my company logos.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enjoying using this This is a very user friendly tripod, easy to set up and take down. I wish it weighed 1/2 pound or so less but everything is a trade off and it's a study tripod for my Sony A6000. I'd have no hesitation recommending it

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best typo on the B&H website! Well, I haven't bought or used this tripod, but I just love the typo in the description: The BeFree Color series has improved on previous models with a few new additions worth NOTHING, the first of which...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Requiring a headline for review is silly. It's an ok little tripod, unfolds and sets up quickly. The bottom segment of the legs is a little more bendy than I like but fitment of all the pieces is tight so it doesn't move as much as I expected it would. I've used it with my Nikon D5500 and Sigma 18-35 Art lens on days without wind and haven't had any problems. It is a travel tripod after all so you are sacrificing some rigidity for size and weight.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from The tripod is fine, but the package is broken The tripod is wrapped in layers of bubbles, but the package is still broken. I guess the package is broken before shipping.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great travel tripod I bought this for my cousin and he happens to be over 6’2. I did not think this would work for him but it actually works fine especially with a D750 where you can adjust the screen.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can't go wrong with red Th legs can get a little crazy with the locking mechanism. Always gotta double check to make sure the legs are in the right position. Also, I wish it came with a bubble level.
