Manfrotto MVKBFRT-LIVEUS Overview

  • 1Description

A compact support system designed for travelling and shooting on the go, the Befree Live Video Tripod Kit with Twist Leg Locks from Manfrotto is composed of sturdy aluminum tripod legs paired with a fluid video head and a quick release plate. With a load capacity of 8.8 lb, the head offers fluid movement that is aided by separate pan and tilt locking knobs for precise control over your composition. Included with it is a pan bar and a sliding quick release plate, both of which are removable to help enhance its portability.

The legs reach a maximum height of 59.1" with the column raised, and can be extended and secured in seconds thanks to the M-lock twist locks that engage with a simple 90° turn. The sliding leg angle selector is easy to reach and can be operated with a single finger, making adjustments significantly easier to perform. Found at the top is an Easy Link connector, which allows you to attach compatible accessories such as flashes or reflectors. The Befree Live can be folded down to 15.7" with the head removed, and attaches to any camera with either a 1/4"-20 or 3/8"-16 threaded screw mount.

    Manfrotto MVKBFRT-LIVEUS Reviews

    Befree Live Aluminum Video Tripod Kit with Twist Leg Locks is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Travel When you need to run and shoot a job out of town and you don't want to check a bag, this tripod gets the job done. Small enough to easily fit into a roller bag or large backpack, the BeFree did a commendable job supporting my DSLR on a recent video shoot. I'll be taking it with me on every trip from now on.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't like the twist! I love the tripod but I can't understate how much I hate the twist leg locks. My previous Manfrotto Befree (not the video tripod) had the latches and if you got sand in them they wouldn't close fully and you'd have to take it apart. For some reason I thought the twist design would be far superior. Here's the problem with twist vs clasp leg locks: you KNOW when the clasp is closed, but you don't know how tight the twist locks are. When you are running and gunning, quickly setting up and taking down, sometimes you don't tighten one of the twist locks fully and then the tripod gives way and falls over. Scary. I would've preferred the latch/clasp design to twist and I would've loved this product

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from When you have more than 45 years.... Im an antique owner to Gitzo and Manfrotto and RRS. My last tripod a Gitzo mountainer gives me years to service for this reason y really love it. But...the time is time and the years in shoulders its no the same... For this reason, it put 200 and try Manfrotto Befree. My surprise is...so light and so stable for my A7rlll and 35 1.4 Zeiss Great for Manfrotto!!
