The Manfrotto Befree Live Aluminum Tripod Twist is a compact, travel video tripod kit dedicated to videographers and vloggers who want maximum performance, even when they are on the go. It is easy to carry everywhere thanks to its compact size and it fulfils an increasing demand from independent content creators for a lightweight, ergonomic travel tripod that is easy-to-carry for video recording with DSLRs, compact system cameras or small camcorders. Also great for run-and-gun light camera rigs or for your C camera monitor footage on location.

It features a tripod spider developed to keep cameras perfectly stable on all types of terrain, including the most uneven, always keeping the camera completely steady and ready to capture amazing video footage.

This model introduces a new locking system called the M-lock, the twist lock developed by Manfrotto with no protruding parts. The M-Lock mechanism closes precisely around the head, enabling the Befree Live to slip into and out of its storage pocket effortlessly.

Its ergonomic leg-angle selector is designed to be used by both right and left-handed videographers, enabling everyone to change shooting perspectives intuitively and to find the right tripod height without losing focus on the shot they want to achieve.

The Befree Live can easily be set to (3) 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, allowing videographers to enhance their creativity by adding accessories that make their footage unique and unforgettable. If you like adding lights or reflectors, you can now catch amazing outdoor footage that was previously only achievable with heavy accessorized tripods.

The Befree Live's small size does not mean compromising on sturdiness or image quality. This solution guarantees very smooth movements thanks to the Befree Live Fluid Head, which features a fluid drag system on pan and tilt and keeps your camera perfectly balanced thanks to its sliding video plate.

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

This lightweight travel video tripod 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 nature using their camera with the confidence of being supported by a professional solution. Befree Live is available in black.
