The Manfrotto Befree 2n1 aluminium travel tripod with lever lock and ball head kit is the ideal solution for advanced hobbyist photographers who want versatility and maximum performance combined in one simple solution, ideal for travelling.
Its ergonomic design makes operating the Manfrotto Befree 2n1 intuitive and fast, enabling even the most demanding photographers to set their equipment up quickly and easily, so they can completely focus on catching the desired shot.
The Befree 2n1 features an integrated full size aluminium monopod that can be easily mounted in a few steps. By simply unlocking the dedicated mechanism on the leg with the leg warmer on, and pulling out the tripod column, the two solid aluminium blocks can be joined together with the dedicated cap screwed under the column. The monopod can easily hold up to 5kg (11 lbs) payload.
This model also provides a new locking mechanism called the QPL Travel lever, a brand-new system developed by Manfrotto, that brings the full locking power of the professional QPL lever on professional Manfrotto tripods like the 190 & 055 collections, to a more lightweight 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.
The ergonomic leg-angle selector is designed to be used by both right and left-handed photographers, enabling everyone to change shooting perspectives intuitively, and to find the right tripod height without losing focus on the shot they want.
The Befree 2n1 can easily be set to three independent leg angle positions, guaranteeing full shooting versatility for all the creative ideas that can emerge outdoors.
The spider is developed to ensure perfect stability on all types of terrain, including the most uneven, always keeping the camera completely steady and ready to capture sharp images. It features the Easy Link, just like Manfrotto professional 190 & 055 tripods, allowing photographers to enhance their creativity by adding accessories that make their shot 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.
The tripod is kitted out with Manfrotto’s Advanced 494 aluminium 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 for managing the sphere lock, an integrated friction control knob that adjusts the ball tension so that equipment weight is always perfectly balanced and shots framed effortlessly; an independent panoramic knob that keeps the horizon flat and moves the camera horizontally, enabling astonishing landscape shots.
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 aluminium 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 disassembling components.
Befree 2n1 is the best travel tripod for passionate photographers who need an all-in-one solution that is perfect for travelling. This lightweight travel tripod is the optimal combination of portability, solidity, easy set-up and operation, and thanks to the detachable legs it allows any photographers to choose the proper support to bring with them, minimizing weight and size. 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.
