The 3.9 lb Befree GT XPRO Carbon Fiber Travel Tripod with 496 Center Ball Head from Manfrotto is a 4-section support with the twist M-Lock leg system that quickly unlocks with a 90° turn, enabling you to extend the legs along with the rapid center column to a maximum height of 64.6". The ergonomic leg-angle button disengages the legs, so you can splay the legs at different heights, and you can completely splay the legs out to a minimum height of 3.5" for low-angle or macro photography. At the same time, the built-in 90° column mechanism allows you to pull the center column out and slide it back in on its side, letting you shoot right over your subject.
The 496 Center Ball Head, which has a load capacity of 22.1 lb, has two independent knobs for the ball movement and for panning, and the main locking knob includes an adjustable tension control on the side of the knob. The head also has a quick release system, which is supplied with a dedicated 200PL PRO plate. To store the tripod or travel with it, the legs fold in the reverse to a length of 16.9" and fit into the included carry bag.
