This Manfrotto Befree Advanced Travel Aluminum Tripod with 494 Ball Head is a sturdy support option that may make a useful travel companion for seasoned photographers and ardent enthusiasts alike. It has a 19.8 lb load capacity and weighs only 3.6 lb. It is built of an aluminium alloy, reaches a maximum height of 59.1", and collapses to a length of 15.7" for easier transport in the carrying case provided.
The four components that make up each leg of the Befree Advanced can be adjusted and firmly locked into position using the QPL lever locks that are present on every segment. With the simple push of a button, you may set up the tripod in three different angle configurations using a side-pull selection. The central ball head, which offers a separate knob for panoramic movement as well as a friction control knob for precise control over the tension during usage, balances out the legs with equal amounts of strength. The final component is a fast release plate that, with the exception of the Manfrotto 804-3W and MH804-3W tripod heads, provides dual compatibility for RC2 and Arca-type compatible systems.
You can add compatible accessories, like as flashes or reflectors, using the Easy Link attachment located at the top of the leg area. As a result, you can use the tripod as a support system and carry less equipment while travelling. In order to prevent sliding and maintain stability on most surfaces, the Befree Advanced has rubberized feet. Finally, while photographing in more challenging situations, you may utilise the integrated hook located at the bottom to add a weight and improve the stability of your tripod.
