We’ve over £ 800 worth of Manfrotto kit to give away!

MANFROTTO'S EX­TEN­SIVE RANGE of pho­to­graphic prod­ucts in­cludes a wide se­lec­tion of ac­ces­sories to suit all types of pho­tog­ra­pher, from stu­dio- based through to out­door. This month's prize com­prises of two prod­ucts to suit the more jour­neyed user and is made up of a light­weight tri­pod and in­no­va­tive cam­era and lap­top back­pack. And, best of all, we've two sets to give away.

The (£ 300) Manfrotto Befree Car­bon tri­pod is per­fect for those want­ing a sta­ble plat­form for their cam­era kit while on their trav­els. Thanks to its 100% car­bon- fi­bre leg con­struc­tion, it weighs only 1.1kg, which is 20% lighter than the alu­minium ver­sion. Its neat de­sign means it is only 40cm long when stored, so can eas­ily fit in­side lug­gage. When opened, it can ex­tend to a height of 1.23m ( 1.42m with cen­tre col­umn raised). The legs boast four sec­tions and can be set at one of two an­gles, while the easy- to- use leg locks are de­signed to sur­vive heavy us­age. A Quick Re­lease Adap­tor en­ables the fold­able legs to pack tightly to save on stor­age space.

The Befree Car­bon is fur­ther bol­stered by the in­clu­sion of a ball head with quick re­lease plate, which can hold a pay­load of 4kg, while a padded carry bag is also in­cluded.

The (£ 115) Manfrotto Ad­vanced Cam­era and Lap­top Back­pack is a com­pact yet spa­cious bag with an in­no­va­tive de­sign and ad­justable padded com­part­ment di­viders that ac­cepts a range of equip­ment. So one day you can head out with a cam­era, three lenses and ac­ces­sories, then load it the next with a DJI Mavic Pro Drone combo kit and mul­ti­ple bat­ter­ies. While your cam­era/ drone kit is safely stored in the main area, a sep­a­rate outer sec­tion holds your lap­top. Var­i­ous zip­pered pock­ets and pouches se­curely hold ac­ces­sories such as mem­ory cards, bat­ter­ies and fil­ters, as well as per­sonal items such as phone, wal­let and keys. It also boasts an ex­pand­able pocket for a tri­pod and rain cover for added pro­tec­tion.
