Manfrotto Befree Advanced

The Befree Advanced from Manfrotto sets a new standard of excellence for travel photography. The ideal tripod for hobbyist and advanced photographers who are after maximum performance when they are on the move, the Befree Advanced is a combination of portability, solidity and easy setup and operation.

The Befree Advanced has been built for use with mirrorless and DSLR cameras and has been designed to ensure that you can take your shots knowing that your camera is being fully supported by a professional solution. The ergonomic design means that setting up the Befree Advanced is intuitive and fast, meaning that your focus stays on catching your desired shot and not on worrying about setting up your equipment.

Available with two new leg locks, the Befree Advanced gives you a choice of either the M Lock twist lock or QPL Travel lever lock. The new QPL Travel lever locks are a brand new system that has been developed by Manfrotto. It brings the full locking power of the professional QPL lever locks that are on larger tripods such as the 190 and 055 collections to a more lightweight version that is perfect for travel. The new on-off mechanism makes both set up and adjustment easy and secure, providing full stability in all configurations when the tripod is in use. The new M twist lock system has been developed by Manfrotto for anyone looking for a fast, easy-to-use and compact solution. The M-Lock system has no protruding parts, and as the Befree Advanced features legs that close perfectly around the head, it means that the Befree Advanced with M-Locks can slip in and out of its storage pocket effortlessly.

Both versions of the new Befree Advanced feature a leg-angle selector that has been designed to be used by both left and right-handed photographers. The Befree Advanced has 3 different leg angles that it can be set to, to guarantee full shooting versatility for any outdoor shoot.

The new spider that has been developed ensures perfect stability on all types of terrain – including the most uneven surfaces to make sure that your camera always stays completely steady and you are ready to capture sharp images. If you like to add a light or reflector, the addition of the Easy Link on the spider will now allow you to do so, meaning you can capture amazing outdoor shots that were previously only achievable with heavy accessorised tripods.

The Befree Advanced features a brand new ball head – the 494 aluminium Center Ball Head. This small but powerful and intuitive head allows quick and precise camera movement. Made of highly resistant, lightweight aluminium it is both portable and strong enough to cope with a payload of 8kg It features three independent controls that mean you can position your camera exactly where you want it for your shot. The main knob manages the sphere lock whilst the integrated friction control knob adjusts the ball tension so that your equipment weight is always perfectly balanced and shots are framed effortlessly. Finally, there is an independent panoramic knob that keeps the horizon flat and moves the camera horizontally for amazing landscape shots.

The new 494 Center ball head also mounts the 200PL-PRO plate – a unique plate that makes it fully compatible with the world’s most widespread standard camera plates: the Manfrotto RC2 and Arca-swiss. With the plate mounted onto your camera, all Manfrotto heads and all tripod heads featuring the Arca style attachments can be set up rapidly and effortlessly.

Befree Advanced is the best travel tripod for passionate photographers who want maximum performance – even when they are travelling. The combination of new features with the portability and ease of use all make this Befree the most advanced yet!
