Manfrotto Befree Advanced Aluminum Travel Tripod Kit with Ball Head

The Manfrotto Befree Advanced Lever aluminum travel tripod and ball head kit is the ideal solution for photographers who want maximum performance and stability at all times, including when they’re traveling. Its ergonomic design makes operating the Manfrotto Befree Advanced intuitive and fast, enabling even the most demanding photographers to set equipment up quickly and easily, so their focus stays on catching the desired shot.The Befree Advanced features a new spider developed to ensure perfect stability on all types of terrain, even the most uneven, always keeping the camera completely steady and ready to capture sharp images. 

Ideal for Travel

The Manfrotto Befree Advanced Lever Lock Tripod sports a new locking mechanism called the QPL Travel lever which is a brand-new system developed by Manfrotto that brings the full locking power of the professional QPL lever to the version that is ideal for travel. The new on/off mechanism makes set up and adjustment easy and secure, providing full stability in all its configurations when the tripod is open.


This model introduces a new locking system called the M-lock, which is a 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 to slip into and out of its storage pocket effortlessly. 

Leg-angle Selector 

The ergonomic leg-angle selector is designed to be used by both right and left-handed photographers, enabling anyone to be able to change shooting perspectives intuitively and 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 an Easy Link, just like Manfrotto’s professional 190 & 055 tripods, allowing photographers to enhance their creativity by adding accessories that make their shots unique and unforgettable. Photographers who love adding lights or reflectors can now take amazing outdoor shots that were previously only achievable with heavy accessorized tripods.

Manfrotto 496 Center Ball Head

The tripod is fitted out with Manfrotto’s Advanced 494 aluminum 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, an integrated friction control knob, and an independent panoramic knob. The main knob is for managing the sphere lock. The integrated friction control knob will adjust the ball tension so that equipment weight is always perfectly balanced and the shots are framed effortlessly. Lastly, the independent panoramic knob keeps the horizon flat and moves the camera horizontally, enabling astonishing landscape shots.

Excellent Compatibility 

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 aluminum plate fixed to the camera, all Manfrotto heads and almost all tripod heads on the market featuring Arca-style attachments can be set up rapidly and effortlessly, with no need for disassembly components.
