Gentec International announces the launch of Manfrotto’s Befree, a compact tripod featuring an innovative design dedicated to photographers who love to travel.

Now, there’s no need to sacrifice a sturdy camera support when travelling. With this convenient travel companion, photography on-the-go has never been easier.

The Befree tripod is an easy tool to pack. Thanks to its unique design, the legs fold perfectly around the head into a closed position, where it is only 40 centimetres in length. The tripod’s lightweight aluminum construction makes it especially easy to carry; at 1.4 kilograms, it weighs less than the average laptop. The Befree also comes with a dedicated shoulder bag that protects it from accidental damage and makes it more portable for traveling and convenient to store in luggage. No longer will photographers have to compromise on picture quality because they weren’t able to travel with their heavy tripod.

The Befree’s compact size and portability don’t detract from its sturdiness. This reliable tripod keeps your camera steadily locked in place in any desired position, ensuring sharp images. The Befree is quick to set up and easy to use. The new aluminum ball head is solid and simple to operate, offering a maximum load capacity of four kilograms to guarantee stability, even with long zoom lenses. Aluminum leg locks ensure a long lifespan and allow the tripod to withstand harsh use over time. The new, patented leg-angle selectors quickly allow you to choose between two inclinations, offering maximum versatility for camera positioning.

Featuring premium Italian design and finishing that make it stand out from the crowd, the high-quality Befree complements any photographer’s photographic style, making it the perfect accessory for those on the go. The Befree (MKBFRA4-BH) has a suggested retail price of $249.95 and will be available in June.
