Manfrotto Befree 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 carbon fiber 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 16.1" with the head removed, and attaches to any camera with either a 1/4"-20 or 3/8"-16 threaded screw mount.

    Manfrotto Befree Reviews

    Befree Live Carbon Fiber Video Tripod Kit with Twist Leg Locks is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stable, Light. Its a Win!! Bought this to do some video on my A7III with 24-105 lens. Amazing smooth video with this head. What I, also found out is how much I love shooting pics with it. Its so stable and easy to orient the camera. Only thing I havent done yet is astrophotography. But I will try it out soon.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantatic Great quality light weight and perfect for travel. The head is pretty small so just be aware that this tripods focus is compactability and weight - it's not that usual manfrotto heavy drag feeling. I shot with it on my 5Dmkiii with a 70-200 and the drag was stable and fluid but I wouldn't walk away from it in fear of it blowing over in a gust of wind. I'm over the moon with it and can't wait to film in Africa with it!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Maybe 5? I wanted a small lightweight travel tripod to replace my Miller tripod and head. They were great for years but they have grown heavier as I aged. I have yet to give this tripod an extensive testing but a preliminary walk through indicates that it will be sturdy enough (and the head fluid enough) for recording birds in the field. I am sure that it will not be as durable as the Miller has been but I think it will do the job and most importantly, I will be able to carry it to where I want to use it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and compact for hunting I've been searching for a lightweight compact carbon tripod that had a fluid head that I could take sheep hunting with me and this one is it. The design is great the legs are sturdy and the fluid head is strong enough to hold my Swarovski 15x56 Bino's and 60mm STX spotter all while being super smooth while panning. The best part about it is it only weighs by my digital scale 3.03lbs. Another great product from Manfrotto!
