Manfrotto Unveil Three new Travel Tripods in the Befree Range

The Manfrotto Befree Travel Tripod range has been nothing short of a trailblazer in terms of travel tripods, quickly becoming the choice of many a land-hopping image maker. Such is this success, Manfrotto has announced three new models to join the range

Designed primarily for the advanced hobbyist photographer, the new models should plug any gaps that may have been previously found in these excellent tripods from the stabilisation supremos.

The new models are made up from:

  • The Befree 2N1: Primary function – to switch from travel tripod to monopod
  • The Befree Nerissimo: An alloy twist-lock travel tripod with matte black coating
  • The Befree Live: Features a ‘Quick Power Lock lever’

First up, the Befree 2N1

This new tripod from Manfrotto is the most adaptable model in the current Befree range. Offering an all-in-one package that enables it to be transformed into a monopod in a few simple moves.

The new Befree 2N1 has a dedicated lock system that guarantees a complete loss of movement when set up, either as a tripod or as a monopod.

The Befree 2N1 will be available from the 15th September in two versions: 
Quick Power Lock version with levers [RRP £199.95], and the M-Lock [RRP £199.95].

Next up, the Manfrotto Befree Nerissimo

Possibly the most elegant travel tripod in the range, this new model has been designed for advanced & hobbyist photographers. Made of fine-grade alloy, the new Befree Nerissimo combines quality materials with a neat matte black finish.
