The Befree GT XPRO Carbon is the first Manfrotto Travel Tripod developed for professional macro photographers. A new carbon travel tripod that combines portability with maximum versatility enabling the most creative photographers to push their limits. The Befree GT XPRO’s settings and controls are designed to be ergonomic, intuitive, and highly portable. It features a built-in 90°column mechanism in its top casting, which stays safely stored away until needed. Not only does this system allow the camera to be offset from the tripod’s leg position, it also provides the simplest possible way to shoot from ground level or directly overhead. The tripod is kitted out with Manfrotto’s advanced 496 head, a portable and powerful head that combines versatility and firmness with a great load capacity (holds up to 10kg) and independent panoramic and friction knobs for full movement control. Framing with zoom lenses is now easier and faster. Befree GT XPRO Carbon features carbon fibre tubes which reach high quality standards and high levels of performance of rigidity and lightness. This outstanding quality is obtained with a special production process which maximize performance, resistance and reliability.

Combines the compactness of a travel tripod with carbon fibre legs and solid construction - plus the ability to use it with the centre riser in horizontal mode for macro work. Reaches high enough to be comfortable to use while remains stable enough for long exposures. And great price from LKN Australia - who have excellent customer service. Really happy with this purchase.
