Man­frotto Car­bon BeFree

Es­cap­ing for some win­ter sun? Pack this light­weight car­bon tri­pod

NPhoto - - Xmas Gift Guide -

The Man­frotto BeFree car­bon weighs in at an in­cred­i­bly light 1.1kg, 300g lighter than the stan­dard ver­sion. This might not seem like a great deal, but when the rest of your kit is fac­tored in as well it can make a big dif­fer­ence. Be­ing a travel tri­pod it’s de­signed to pack down small – to just 40cm – mak­ing it ideal for pop­ping in your suit­case.

The mech­a­nisms of the BeFree are very sim­ple, with lever locks to re­lease and se­cure the legs and a small ball head. Fully ex­tended, it has a work­ing height of 144cm, which can be col­lapsed down to a min­i­mum work­ing height of just 34cm.

The Car­bon BeFree can hold a max­i­mum weight of 4kg, so it will eas­ily hold any of Nikon’s present bod­ies with a prime – even a Nikon D4s with Nikon 58mm.

It’s light­weight, but ca­pa­ble of car­ry­ing a chunky Nikon plus lens
