The BeFree Carbon. The Best Of Travel Companions. 

Manfrotto, the world leader in the equipment and accessories industry for photography and imaging proudly launches BeFree Carbon, a new product in the Befree range. The carbon fiber version, devoted to hobbyists who love to travel, is now lighter but still fast to set up, intuitive to use and absolutely stable for capturing precise and sharp pictures.


Light and portable
Befree Carbon legs are entirely made of carbon fiber, which guarantees lightness as long as rigidity and transportability. Its weight is only 1,1 kg (2,2 lbs) and its foldable legs, packed tightly, reach a folded length of just 40 cm (15,7 in), thanks to an exclusive mechanism and to the ball’s head compact Quick Release Adaptor. In addition to that, it is very fast to set up and surprisingly stable. These characteristics allow traveler photographers to take stunning pictures wherever they go.


Easy to transport
Befree Carbon becomes the ideal tripod for travellers also thanks to its size, which perfectly fits into hand luggage or backpacks. It can be comfortably carried everywhere thanks to its extra cushioned carry bag, that preserves it from any unintentional damage and makes it very easy to pack in luggage.


Impressive Italian style
The premium Italian design makes Befree Carbon a stunning accessory, attractive and eye-catching, for any photographer and it is the first to boast graphics on its legs, which makes it unique. Thanks to its new style, great-looking and superb design, Befree Carbon will follow photographers in every experience supporting their passions, works and memories just like a perfect travel companion.


The Befree Carbon tripod is now available in our stores!


About "Finding Vivian Maier"


©Vivian Maier_Maloof Collection

A mysterious nanny, who secretly took over 100,000 photographs that were hidden in storage lockers and discovered decades later, is now considered among the 20th century’s greatest photographers. Maier’s strange and riveting life and art are revealed through never before seen photographs, films, and interviews with dozens who thought they knew her.

"Ms. Maier’s streetscapes manage simultaneously to capture a redolent sense of place and the paradoxical moments that give the city its jazz, while elevating and dignifying the people in her frames — vulnerable, noble, defeated, proud, fragile, tender and often quite funny."
