Manfrotto have introduced a new addition to their Befree travel tripod range, the MKBFRC4-BH. This is a lightweight carbon fiber tripod that weighs in at just 1.1kg (2.4 lbs) that’s a 20% shaved off the weight in comparison to the existing aluminium model.
When the foldable legs are packed away they are only 40cm in length, when fully extended the tripod can reach a maximum of 4.6 feet, and can accommodate a camera and lens combination weighing up to 4kgs (8.8lbs) in weight (exactly the same amount as the aluminium version).
The Befree Carbon ships with a padded carry bag and is now available to purchase at a price of $389. You can get more details via the Manfrotto website.
