Overview

Befree Advanced Carbon Fiber Travel Tripod & MH494-BH Ball Head

Manfrotto’s Befree advanced Twist carbon fiber travel tripod and ball head kit is the ideal solution for advanced hobbyist photographers who always want maximum performance, including when they’re travelling. Its ergonomic design makes operating the Manfrotto Befree advanced 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 features a new spider developed to ensure perfect stability on all types of terrain, including the most uneven, always keeping the camera completely steady and ready to capture sharp images.

Key Features:

  • Advanced Travel Tripod kit Carbon
  • Superior performance with maximum lightness
  • Center Ball Head with three independent ergonomic controls
  • Side pull selector ensures quick setup with both hands
  • Unique premium design, 100% Made in Italy

M-Lock System

This model introduces a new locking system called the M-lock, the new twist lock developed by Manfrotto to fully satisfy everyone 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 can slip into and out of its storage pocket effortlessly. 

Leg-Angle Selector

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.

The Befree advanced can easily be set to three independent leg angle positions, guaranteeing full shooting versatility for all the creative ideas that can emerge outdoors.

Easy Link

The spider featured on this innovative model also provides 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 heavy accessorized tripods.

494 Center Ball

The tripod is kitted out with Manfrotto’s Advanced 494 aluminium Center ball head, 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 for managing the sphere lock, an integrated friction control knob that adjusts the ball tension so that equipment weight is always perfectly balanced and shots framed effortlessly; an independent panoramic knob that keeps the horizon flat and moves the camera horizontally, enabling astonishing landscape shots.

Universal Mounting

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.
