Manfrotto Befree GT Travel Carbon Fiber Tripo... Overview

Sporting a 22 lb load capacity at a weight of only 3.4 lb, this black Befree GT Travel Tripod for Sony a Series Cameras from Manfrotto is designed for professional photographers needing a reliable travel companion for their DSLR or mirrorless cameras. It features a sturdy carbon fiber construction, reaching a maximum height of 63.8" with the center column extended and 54.3" when the column is collapsed. For storage, the tripod folds down to 16.9" in length and can be easily carried in its included padded bag while traveling.

Each leg of the Befree GT is composed of four sections, which can be adjusted and secured in seconds thanks to the M-lock twist locks that operate with a simple 90° turn. A side-pull selector allows you to unfold the legs and lock them at three different angles, making for an easy way to regulate your height. Complementing the legs is the equally robust 496 ball head, which offers a dedicated knob for panoramic movement as well as a friction control knob for precise control over the tension during use. The final element is a quick release plate, which is compatible with both RC2 and Arca-type clamps except for the Manfrotto 804-3W and MH804-3W tripod heads.

An Easy Link attachment is available at the top portion of the leg section, and allows you to connect optional accessories such as flashes or reflectors. This enables you to use the tripod as a support system and reduce the amount of gear you need to carry while travelling. Additionally, rubberized feet are used to avoid skidding and help keep the tripod stable in most types of terrain. The Befree GT is compatible with both 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded mounts, thanks to an included bushing adapter that allows you to switch between the two screw sizes.

looking for a camera lens for my trip to Paris. I have a sony alpha 6400 and a mc-11 teleconverter. I assume at wide angle but I have no idea.
Asked by: Scott
I own Nikon, but in general the Tripod will carry easily any lens up to 70-200 f2.8 and beyond. If you consider a wide angle - it will be lighter, not heavier than this. Then go-for-it. The tripod is excellent - but thin desert dust may enter the legs screws. Be aware. I hope this helps.

I got this about a month ago and I like it. But would it be OK to mostly keep it in the trunk of a car? I guess the max outside temp would be 100F. If not I'll just keep one of my old and cheap aluminum ones in the trunk.
Asked by: Richard
