Features

Overview: The Manfrotto Befree Live aluminum tripod is a compact travel video tripod that provides maximum performance for shooting still photos or videos with a DSLR, mirrorless, or compact camera or small camcorder. Its maximum payload weight capacity is 8.82 pounds. The lightweight tripod weighs less than 4 pounds, making it easy to carry wherever you go. It features a rapid center column, and folding 4-section legs with rubber feet that supply a secure, non-slip base on any surface. The tripod is equipped with the Befree Live Fluid Head with a sliding quick-release plate, and comes with a convenient carry case.

Four-section Legs: The Befree Live tripod is equipped with four-section legs with flip-type QPL Travel lever locks. These locks are similar to those found on Manfrotto's higher end professional tripods, and provide maximum stability and easy setup. The four telescoping leg sections have diameters of 0.47, 0.61, 0.75, and 0.89 inches. The legs have independent angle settings at 22°, 54°, and 89°. The ergonomic leg-angle selectors are easy to operate with either hand, and allow you to intuitively change the angle and find the right tripod height for your shot. One of the legs has a rubber grip near the top for easy carrying and setup. The range of height is 15.75" to 59.45". With the center column down, the maximum height is 51.18". The closed length is 15.75".

Head Action: The Befree Live aluminum tripod has a MVH400AH fluid video head that ensures smooth footage. The head's fluid cartridge has a fixed amount of pan and tilt drag. The head has a 501PL rectangular quick-release plate with a standard 1/4" mounting screw and a 3/8" adapter. A bubble level is provided to help you align the camera, and to ensure that the horizon line is absolutely straight. The head can rotate the camera a full 360° and tilt the head from -90° to +65°. The tripod's 10" pan bar can be adjusted at 18° intervals so you can set the optimum angle.

Easy Link: The tripod spider features an Easy Link, a 3/8" female thread, for attaching accessory arms that support photographic accessories such as lights or reflectors. This feature is usually only found on high-end tripods, such as Manfrotto's professional 190 and 055 tripods.

Tripod Hook: A rigid hook is provided on the tripod spider to allow you to attach an optional carrying strap for easy transport. You could also hang a counterweight or camera bag to give your tripod extra stability.

Warranty: The Manfrotto Befree Live tripod carries a Standard Limited Warranty of six months from the date of purchase. The products are eligible for a free Standard Limited Warranty Extension of an additional 9.5 years (for a total of 10 years) when registered online.
