Manfrotto Befree Advanced Carbon Fibre Twist Lock Tripod Kit (MKBFRTC4-BH) in More Detail

The Befree Advanced Carbon Fibre Twist Lock Tripod features Manfrotto’s innovative M-lock twist lock system, offering a fast and hassle-free setup. The M-Lock design eliminates protruding parts, ensuring a seamless closure around the tripod head, allowing effortless storage and retrieval.


Designed with ergonomics in mind, the carbon tripod incorporates an intuitive leg-angle selector suitable for both right and left-handed photographers. This enables easy adjustment of shooting perspectives and finding the perfect tripod height without distractions from the desired shot. The Befree Advanced Carbon tripod also provides three independent leg angle positions, for unparalleled shooting versatility for outdoor creative shots.

The tripod boasts a lightweight magnesium spider, equipped with an Easy Link feature seen in Manfrotto's professional 190 XPRO and 055 tripod. This allows photographers to attach various accessories such as LED video lights or light modifiers, helping you to capture shots that were previously only achievable with heavily accessorised tripods.


Included in the kit is the advanced 494 aluminium Centre ball head (MH494-BH), a compact yet powerful tripod head for quick and precise camera movements. The 494 Centre ball head features three independent controls: a main knob for sphere lock management, an integrated friction control knob for adjusting ball tension to achieve perfect balance with equipment weight, and an independent panoramic knob for horizontal camera movements, enabling stunning landscape shots with ease.

Additionally, the head features a unique tripod plate that ensures full compatibility with the most widely used standard head attachments, including Manfrotto RC2 and Arca-swiss style. By simply fixing this aluminium 200PL PRO tripod plate to the camera, users can rapidly and effortlessly set up the tripod with virtually any head featuring Arca-swiss style attachments, eliminating the need for disassembly.


With its unbeatable combination of maximum lightness, solid construction, easy setup, and intuitive operation, the Befree Advanced Carbon tripod is the perfect choice for passionate travel photographers.
