Just picked up this excellent example of Manfrotto’s World renowned built quality and at a decent price too, just £117.00 on Amazon at the time of this review (a 30% discount on the RRP) .
There are two different size options available, the 30cm or 40cm (Size when closed) but for this Review I will be focusing on their 40cm version.
At first glance this tripod is not only pleasant to look at, but also practical with a compact size and fairly light too, at just 1.4kg or 3lbs.
The full specs of this Semi-professional grade tripod are;
– Hight when fully extended: 144cm or 56.7inch
– Size when closed down for storage: 40cm or 15.7inch
– Colour options are: Black with either; Red, Blue, Gray or Green accents.
– Weight: 1.4kg or 3lbs
The build quality of this tripod dose not disappoint, which is what we have come to expect from Manfrotto. When out and about it is great to have the option of such a compact tripod that is easy to carry, easy and fast to set up and has a quality ball head system for composing your shot, locking the ball head and getting your desired composition every time with the least hassle possible, compared to some of the other options out there. The Camera mounting system is well thought out too and secure with a double locking latch system for added protection of your camera. The tripod has a well built smart adjustment system for the legs, easily allowing you to select three options; 1. Packing mode, which allows you to fold the legs back giving you the compact storage design. 2. Normal use mode and 3. Low level shooting mode. The only possible downside to this tripod would be its weight restrictions, if you are planning on using a larger Pro DSLR or a Semi-Pro DSLR with a battery grip and a X-300mm lense, then this is not the tripod for you. However if you are using a standard Canon 70D size camera like myself with my trusty 17-85mm, then you will have no problems what so ever.
All in all I am well impressed with this tripod and I look forward to using it out on location. My main reason for getting the tripod was obviously its compact looking design, but after actually holding it in my hands and getting to test it out around my local area, I am a satisfied customer and would give this model top marks. (Based on my requirements)
My first major test of this tripod will be in the Scottish Highlands next week (October 13-18 2016) when I will fully put it through its paces and post a full on location, hands on review on my YouTube channel so check it out if you are looking around at different travel tripod options and can’t make a decision or if you are just interested in Travel Photography in general.
My overall star rating: 5 out of 5

Ich hatte das Stativ als Ersatz für mein Mantona Reisestativ bestellt, weil dieses eien Beinverriegelung mit Drehmechanik hat, was immer wieder zu Problemen führt und mich ziemlich nervt. Daher hatte ich nach einem Stativ mit anderer Verriegelung der Beine gesucht und war hier fündig geworden.
Was mir gefällt:
+ Beinverriegelung mit Schnappverschlüssen.
+ Ausstellmechanik mit leichgängigen Hebeln
+ Sehr schöne und solide Transporttasche
+ Große Drehverschlüsse an der Mittelsäule und am Kopf
+ Schnellverschluss an der Schnellwechselplatte
+ Sehr gute Verarbeitung
Bis dahin alles prima, was mir aber überhaupt nicht gefällt:
-- Es gibt am Kopf nur einen gemeinsamen Feststellhebel für Neigung und Azimut, d.h. wenn ich die Aufnahmerichtung ändern will muss ich auch den Kugelkopf lösen. Panoramen gehen daher eigentlich mit diesem Stativ nicht. Da hat Manfrotto nun wirklich an der falschen Stelle gespart.
- Keine Wasserwaagen am Kopf (o.k., hab ich gewusst, bewerte ich auch nicht)
- Schnellwechselplatte nicht Arca-Swiss kompatibel (o.k., hab ich auch gewusst, bewerte ich auch nicht)
Wen das mit dem Feststellhebel nicht stört, sollte ruhig zugreifen, qualitativ ist das Stativ durchaus in Ordnung, er fehlt aber ein wichtiges Merkmal.
The Be Free is small and light enough to slip into a cabin bag without taking up to much space or weight allowance. It's reasonably sturdy supporting my Canon 7D and Sigma 17-70 lens well. I haven't tried it with anything heavier yet but I don't expect it to be as good as the 055XPROB.
For what it's worth I tried the above camera combo on a small Gorilla Pod and learnt the hard way that it's not very stable when doing long exposures. The Be Free handles this situation just fine.
I quite like the ball head which I've not had before and might convert the 055XPROB to one as well.
I purchased a Triopo Carbon Fibre tripod that is not only lighter, by some 300 grms when fitted with a similar head to the Befree, it was also cheaper. But bare in mind that the Befree does come with a head, whereas the Triopo did not.
