Manfrotto’s Befree advanced Carbon Twist travel tripod and ball head kit is the ideal solution for advanced hobbyist photographers looking for a super-lightweight support that ensures maximum performance on the go. 
The carbon fibre legs are developed to keep weight down to a minimum while ensuring best-in-class stability and rigidity. 
Its ergonomic design makes operating the Manfrotto Befree advanced carbon intuitive and fast, enabling even the most demanding photographers to set their equipment up quickly and easily so their focus stays on catching the desired shot. Befree advanced carbon features a new spider made of lightweight and solid magnesium, developed to ensure perfect stability on all types of terrain, including the most uneven ones, always keeping the camera completely steady and ready to capture sharp images. 
This model is available in the M-lock version, the new twist lock developed by Manfrotto to satisfy anyone 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 carbon 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 photographers, enabling everyone to change shooting perspectives intuitively and to find the right tripod height without losing focus on the shot they want to achieve. 
The Befree advanced carbon can easily be set to three independent leg angle positions, guaranteeing full shooting versatility for all the creative ideas that can emerge outdoors. 

The lightweight magnesium spider featured on this innovative model also has the Easy Link, just like Manfrotto’s professional 190 & 055 tripods, allowing photographers to enhance their creativity by adding accessories that make their images unique and unforgettable. If you like, adding lights or reflectors, you can now capture amazing outdoor shots that were previously only achievable with heavily accessorized tripods. 

The tripod is kitted out with Manfrotto’s advanced 494 aluminium Center ball head (MH494-BH) , a small but powerful and intuitive head that allows quick and precise camera movement. The 494 Center ball head features three independent controls: a main knob manages the sphere lock, an integrated friction control knob adjusts the ball tension so that equipment weight is always perfectly balanced, and shots framed effortlessly; an independent panoramic knob keeps the horizon flat and moves the camera horizontally, enabling astonishing landscape shots. 
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 camera, 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 components. 

Befree advanced carbon is the “top choice” travel tripod for passionate photographers who want maximum lightness and unbeatable performance, even when they’re travelling. This lightweight travel tripod is the optimal combination of portability, solidity, easy set-up and operation. It is built to allow photographers to express their individuality and achieve the most daring and exceptional shots using their camera with the confidence of being supported by a professional solution that will never let them down.
