Manfrotto Befree Advanced Travel Aluminium Tripod for Sony Cameras
Sporting a 8kg load capacity and a weight of only 1.6, this black and orange Befree Advanced Alpha tripod from Manfrotto is specially designed for the Sony α7 and α9 cameras, featuring matching graphics and a dedicated quick release plate. It is made of aluminium alloy and reaches a maximum height of 151cm with its column extended, folding down to 41cm in length for simplified transport in its included carrying case.
Each leg of the Befree Advanced is composed of four sections, which can be adjusted and securely locked into place with the QPL lever locks found on all segments. A side-pull selector allows you to set up the tripod at three different angle configurations, enabling low angle shooting with the simple push of a button. Complementing the legs is an equally sturdy centre ball head, which offers a dedicated knob for panoramic movement as well as a friction control knob for precise control over the tension during use.
The final element is a dedicated 200PL-Pro quick release plate, which is made specifically for the Sony α7 and α9 series mirrorless cameras. It is bright orange to match the body details and offers dual compatibility for RC2 and Arca-type quick release systems. As the plate is specially designed and had an anti-twist lip.
An Easy Link attachment is available at the top portion of the leg section and allows you to connect compatible accessories such as flashes or reflectors. This enables you to use the tripod as a support system and reduce the amount of gear you need to carry while travelling. Rubberised feet are used to avoid skidding and help keep the Befree Advanced stable in most types of terrain. Finally, an integrated hook found at the bottom can be used to add a weight and increase the stability of your tripod when shooting in more difficult conditions.
