Great user-friendly design features include aluminium leg tubes, built to stay completely rigid for your peace of mind when up.

This makes the tripod with fluid head reliable even with heavy use over time. You can have great flexibility to create the perfect footage by adjusting the 2 leg angles and levelling with the centre column. The Manfrotto designed rubber leg warmer increase the grip and makes it very handy. 

This tripod with fluid head also comes with the smallest and most lightweight video head in the Manfrotto range. The Befree Live Fluid Head has a dedicated sliding plate to perfectly balance the latest camcorders, DSLRs or mirrorless cameras with video capabilities and it has awesome fluidity on Pan & Tilt thanks to the fluid drag system inherited from all the Manfrotto Video head range.
