Manfrotto Befree Aluminium Tripod and Ball Head MKBFRTA4BK-BH
Manfrotto’s Befree advanced Twist aluminium travel tripod and ball head kit is the ideal solution for advanced birders and photographers who always want maximum performance, including when they’re travelling.
Its ergonomic design makes operating the Manfrotto Befree advanced intuitive and fast, enabling even the most demanding birders to set their equipment up quickly and easily.
Befree advanced features a new spider developed to ensure perfect stability on all types of terrain, including the most uneven, always keeping the telescope completely steady and ready to view.
This model introduces a new locking system called the M-lock, the new twist lock developed by Manfrotto to fully satisfy everyone looking for a fast, easy to use, compact solution. Moreover, the M-Lock has no protruding parts and its mechanism closes perfectly around the head, enabling the Befree advanced to slip into and out of its storage pocket effortlessly.
Its ergonomic leg-angle selector is designed to be used by both right and left-handed birders, enabling everyone to change perspectives intuitively and to find the right tripod height without losing focus.
The Befree advanced can easily be set to three independent leg angle positions, guaranteeing full versatility.
The spider featured on this innovative model also provides the Easy Link, just like Manfrotto’s professional 190 & 055 tripods.
The tripod is kitted out with Manfrotto’s Advanced 494 aluminium Center ball head, a small but powerful and intuitive head that allows quick and precise telescope movement. The 494 Center ball head features three independent controls: a main knob for managing the sphere lock, an integrated friction control knob that adjusts the ball tension so that equipment weight is always perfectly balanced; an independent panoramic knob that keeps the horizon flat and moves the telescope horizontally, enabling astonishingly smooth panning.
The head mounts a unique plate that makes it fully compatible with the world’s most widespread standard head attachments: Manfrotto RC2 and Arca-swiss style. With this aluminium plate fixed to the telescope, all Manfrotto heads and almost all tripod heads on the market featuring Arca-swiss style attachments can be set up rapidly and effortlessly, with no need for disassembly of components.
Befree advanced is the best travel tripod for passionate birders who want maximum performance, even when they’re travelling. This lightweight travel tripod is the optimal combination of portability, solidity, easy set-up and operation.
