Manfrotto presents some new variants of its free travel tripod. The Befree 2N1 can be converted from a tripod to a monopod in no time at all. Therefore one of the legs as well as the middle column is removed and screwed together. The locking mechanism should engage again safely and without any room for movement when it is reattached later.
The travel tripod equipped with the 494 ball head allows a maximum working height of 150 cm, has a load capacity of 8 kg and is available in two versions - as "Quick Power Lock" (QPL à 1.66 kg) and as M-Lock version (1.55 kg). Price approx. 218 Euro, will be delivered from the end of September.
The most compact of the tripods will also be available from the end of September in a Quick Power Lock version -- the Befree Live QPL offers the same packing size of 40 cm as the previously available Befree Live and weighs 0.38 kg with a load capacity of up to 4 kg; maximum working height 151 cm. Equipped with a levelling unit and the Befree Live fluid head it costs about 237 Euro.
