Manfrotto introduces new Befree GT XPRO tripod
The tripod features a built-in 90° column and is aimed at macro photographers
The new Befree GT XPRO aluminium and carbon fibre travel tripod is designed for travelling professional photographers who seek a compact and versatile tripod to take on creative adventures.
This new addition to the Befree Advanced family combines the sturdiness and reliability of the Befree GT series with the versatility of the celebrated 90° column. The GT XPRO comes in the same folded compact size as earlier models in the Befree GT family: 43cm.
The new tripod comes in aluminium and carbon fibre versions, and is the first travel tripod to feature both Manfrotto’s 180° foldable legs and its built-in 90° column mechanism, housed in the tripod’s top casting.
Weighing in at only 1.76kg for the carbon fibre version, or 2kg for the aluminium version, the Befree GT XPRO has the locking power to support an impressive 10kg of photography gear, including DSLRs or CSCs with zoom lenses. The included 200PL-PRO rubberised plate increases camera grip and makes it fully compatible with the Manfrotto RC2 and Arca-Swiss-type head attachments.
The aluminium Befree GT XPRO will be available at RRP £269.95, with the carbon fibre version priced at RRP £409.95.
