Just in time for the upcoming holiday season, Manfrotto presents carbon versions of its travel tripods, including the Befree Live Carbon for video. It weighs only 1.38 kg with its carbon fiber legs, thus undercutting the weight of Befree Live video tripod, which has been available since 2016. The Befree Live FluidHead remains the same (it weighs an additional 0.38kg), the load capacity therefore remains unchanged at 4kg, the dimensions are also the same with a maximum height of 150cm and a packing size of 41cm.
In addition to a levelling unit, the stand features the "M-Lock" twist-lock system for quick assembly, a selector switch for adjusting the leg angle and an Easy-Link connection for attaching accessories. The shoulder of the tripod has been redesigned to provide greater stability on a variety of terrains. Included in delivery is a 200PL-PRO plate, which is compatible with both RC2 and Arca-Swiss.
The Manfrotto Befree Live Carbon video tripod -- as well as other carbon versions for photographers -- is now available in stores and costs 347 Euro.
