Manfrotto, world leader in the photography, videography and imaging equipment and accessories industry, has expanded its travel tripod range with three new additions to the Befree Collection. Manfrotto Befree travel tripods have proved extremely successful with advanced hobbyist photographers and independent content creators, for whom three new versatile and stylish travel tripod models have been developed.

Befree 2N1 The Manfrotto Befree 2N1 is by far the most versatile model in the Befree range, with an all-in-one solution that allows the tripod to be converted into a robust monopod in just a few steps. The Befree 2N1 offers a secure, easy and fast solution to convert the tripod into a monopod, while retaining the same exceptional stability afforded throughout the Befree collection.

Secure and stable. The technology behind the safety and stability of the Befree 2N1 is a dedicated locking system that ensures the total absence of play when working both as a tripod and as a monopod. Furthermore, the conjunction cap on the centre column of the Befree 2N1 firmly connects the tripod leg to the tripod column, giving shape to a solid travel monopod.

Simple and fast. The Befree 2N1 is made to enable quick and easy switching from a tripod to a monopod. After a half-turn anticlockwise, a red rubber ring will appear on the tripod leg, providing the user with visual feedback that the tube can be safely removed for use as a monopod.

The Befree 2N1 is available from 15th September in two versions that cater to all advanced hobbyist photographers: the Quick Power Lock version with levers (RRP £199.95), and the M-Lock (RRP £199.95).

Befree Nerissimo Travel photography has never been so stylish. Manfrotto presents the Befree Nerissimo, the most elegant travel tripod for advanced hobbyist photographers with an eye for design and detail. Made of the finest aluminium, the Befree Nerissimo blends high-quality materials with new exclusive matte black finishing. Befree has never been so stylish.

The Befree Nerissimo will be available online exclusively at from 1st October at RRP £174.95. 

Befree Live QPL Dedicated to independent content creators. Following the great success of the Befree Live in both aluminium and carbon versions, Manfrotto has designed the new Befree Live with Quick Power Lock, dedicated to independent content creators who prefer the lever lock system: the most intuitive solution for users in the videography world.

The Befree Live QPL Lever combines the strongest tripod construction elements of the Befree Advanced together with the fluidity of the Live head, to provide an increased level of stability. RRP £224.95.

These three new additions to the Befree collection complement the range of Manfrotto travel tripods. Whether shooting for leisure or business, every travel photographer and videographer will find the most suitable photo support among the Befree range.
