The all-in-one Manfrotto Befree 2N1 Aluminum Tripod with 494 Ball Head is a 4-section support with a twist-lock leg system that unlocks with ease and enables the tripod to reach a maximum height of 58.9". The independent leg spread allows it to conform to uneven terrain and allows the 3.4 lb tripod to have a minimum height of 16". When you're ready to go to your next destination, the legs close in the reverse to a folded length of 15.8".
One of the legs is detachable and converts into a working monopod. The 494 ball head, which has a load capacity of 19.8 lb, comes off the rapid center column and attaches to the monopod as well. The head has two independent knobs for the ball movement and for the panning. Plus, the head also has a quick release system, which is supplied with a dedicated 200PL PRO plate. The durable magnesium spider has an Easylink, so an articulated arm can attach or other accessories.
