The most compact video kit, dedicated to videographer on the go. The Manfrotto Befree Live is easy to carry everywhere thanks to its small size and minimal design. It fulfils the increasing customer demand for a lightweight tripod that is easy-to-carry for video recording with a DSLR, compact system cameras and small camcorders.

A high-quality compact travel tripod that fits into carry-on luggage and backpacks. Thanks to the unique folding mechanism, the legs fold perfectly around the head and the sliding plate attachment. In the closed position, this product is only 40cm long, which means it's highly portable.

Befree Live's small size certainly doesn't compromise on sturdiness and image quality. It guarantees very smooth movements thanks to the new Befree Live Fluid Head, featuring a fluid drag system on pan and tilt and keeping your camera perfectly balanced thanks to the video sliding plate.

Easy to use and set-up, the Befree Live Fluid Head is provided with two intuitive on/off knobs to lock and unlock separately the head pan and tilt movement.

It also has an impressive payload of up to 4kg, ensuring stability with larger equipment and sturdiness even with longer-zoom lenses.

Befree's patented leg angle selectors allow you to quickly choose between two positions, offering together with the levelling column the maximum versatility for camera positioning and levelling.
