The 4.4 lb Befree GT XPRO Aluminum Travel Tripod with 496 Center Ball Head from Manfrotto is a 4-section support with the twist M-Lock leg system that quickly unlocks with a 90° turn, enabling you to extend the legs along with the rapid center column to a maximum height of 64.6". The ergonomic leg-angle button disengages the legs, so you can splay the legs at different heights, and you can completely splay the legs out to a minimum height of 3.5" for low-angle or macro photography.

Is this model too far away from the MT055XPRO series or is it worth paying extra and going with the latter?
Asked by: William
I am happy with this tripod except not so much with the 496 head. My 496 broke as soon as I took it out of the box. I liked the tripod so I bought a better head it is a little bigger then the 496 but is much better. According to B&H Manfrotto is going to get in touch with me about the head but I am still waiting. See if you can get the tripod without the 496 and up grade the head.

Can I make this head Arca Swiss compatible? How do you do that?
Asked by: Kevin
There is a 3rd party conversion kit available from a manufacturer named HAOGE. Arca plates are becoming the defacto standard so why Manfrotto needs to stick to their own local system is a mystery to me
