The Befree Live Lever from Manfrotto is the most compact travel video tripod kit, designed for hobbyist videographers and vloggers who want maximum performance on the go. It is easy to carry due to its compact size, and it fulfils an increasing demand from independent content creators for a lightweight, ergonomic travel tripod that is easy-to-carry for video recording with DSLRs, compact system cameras or small camcorders.

It features a tripod spider developed to keep cameras perfectly stable on all types of land, including the most uneven, always keeping the camera completely steady and ready to capture amazing video footage.

The spider featured on this innovative model also provides an Easy Link, just like Manfrotto’s professional 190 & 055 tripods, allowing videographers to enhance their creativity by adding accessories such as lights or reflectors.  

This model features the QPL Travel lever, a brand-new system developed by Manfrotto that brings the full locking power of the professional QPL lever on professional Manfrotto tripods like the 190 & 055 collections, to a more lightweight version that is ideal for traveling. The new on-off mechanism makes set-up and adjustment easy and secure, providing full stability for perfectly stable video shooting.

The Befree Live can easily be set to three independent leg angle positions, guaranteeing full shooting versatility.

It's small size does not mean compromising on sturdiness or image quality. This solution guarantees very smooth movements thanks to the Befree Live Fluid Head, which features a fluid drag system on pan and tilt and keeps your camera perfectly balanced thanks to its sliding video plate.

Easy to use and set up, the Befree Live Fluid Head is provided with two on/off knobs that lock and unlock the head’s pan and tilt movements separately.
