The Befree 3-Way Live Advanced is an innovative model joining the Manfrotto’s flagship tripod family, Befree Advanced, for travel photography and videography, specifically developed for hobbyist and amateur photographers and videographers who want maximum performance and versatility in an all-in-one compact support.
The Befree 3-Way Live Advanced is the first travel tripod kit on the market developed for both photo and video applications. It combines both precision and versatility with innovative and unique features to help photographers and video artists create premium quality video or stills capture. All the users must do is unleash their creativity.
The kit consists of the brand-new Manfrotto’s Befree 3-way Live Head kitted out with the successful Befree Advanced aluminium tripod. It fulfils the need of a dual-purpose photo/video camera kit, following the current camera trend and usage, which see new cameras combining high-quality photo performances with a full-frame sensor and 4K video recording and the complementarity of these two worlds in daily use.
The Manfrotto’s Befree 3-way Live Head, the innovative Manfrotto’s travel 3-way fluid head, features fully foldable handles for unparalleled compactness, and remarkable sturdiness, carrying a payload of up to 6kg. This pioneering head perfectly meets the customer need of experiencing video and photo applications with only one ultra-versatile support.
Featuring the high-performance Befree Fluid Drag System, with its smoothest level of control, both on panoramic and tilt movements, this head is exceptionally easy to fine-tune the composition to frame and film as accurately as possible. The high-performance fluid used represents the latest in Manfrotto’s fluid head technology, built to offer the smoothest level of control and movements and exceptional stability even in extreme temperatures (-30°/ +70°).
The long panoramic handle, the portrait position and the 3 bubble levels complete the head, guaranteeing full shooting precision and versatility, to promote creative ideas and stunning outdoor shoots.
The tripod head also features the unique 200PL-PRO plate, made of a high-quality aluminium body and fully compatible with Manfrotto RC2 & Arca-Swiss type head attachments: with 2 rubber inserts that maximise grip, even on the most angled shots. Moreover, the head's plate-holder is also compatible with 501PL video plate, to ensure the perfect balance even with longer lenses.
The ergonomic design of the kit makes operating the Manfrotto Befree 3-Way Live Advanced intuitive and fast, enabling even the most demanding users to set their equipment up quickly and easily, without losing sight of their desired shot. The spider is 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 and smooth videos.
The QPL Travel lever leg locking system makes set up and adjustment easy and secure, providing full stability in all configurations when the tripod is open.
The ergonomic leg-angle selector is designed to be used by both right and left-handed users, enabling everyone to change shooting perspectives intuitively and find the right tripod height without losing focus on the shot they want to capture. The travel tripod can easily be set to three independent leg angle positions, guaranteeing full shooting versatility for all the creative ideas that can emerge outdoors.
The spider featured on this innovative model also provides an Easy Link, just like Manfrotto’s professional 190 & 055 tripods. This allows photographers and videographers to enhance their creativity by adding accessories that make their shot unique and unforgettable. Creative users who love adding lights or reflectors can now take amazing outdoor shots that were previously only achievable with heavy accessorised tripods.
Manfrotto Befree 3-Way Live Advanced is the best travel tripod for passionate photographers and videographers who want maximum performance in a lightweight format. It is the optimal combination of portability, solidity, easy set-up and operation. It is built with the unique goal of enabling individuals to express their talent using their camera with the confidence of a superior support solution.
