The BeFree Compact Travel Aluminum Alloy Tripod (Black) by Manfrotto is first --very handy and second, well built. It is a little light for use with a heavy camera-lens combination, but it does work. The leg adjustment is easy and they seem to tighten effectively.

    A Little Lightweight

2 April 2015

I bought this tripod to replace a lost Mefoto Roadtrip. I thought the flip lock legs would be faster to set up than the twist legs on the Mefoto. That might be true, however if you shoot in the desert you will be constantly fighting the sand which keeps them from closing.

    Compact, Simple Ballhead

  • -

    Awkward "quick" Release, Bad design, Bends Causing Leg Jams, Cheap build quality, Chintzy, Rubber Feet Fall Out, Very overpriced
