This version of 290 light is a tripod with head for vlogger and mobile journalist that features the new Befree live fluid video head. This video tripod kit combines great performances and innovative design touches with total durability. The new befree live video head provide professional fluidity on pan & tilt ensuring you’ll have an intuitive video tripod set that will stand the test of time. A clever compact and lightweight design makes it especially easy to carry.

Great user-friendly design features include aluminium leg tubes, built to stay completely rigid for your peace of mind when up. Top castings enhance its stability even further, and aluminium leg locking levers give you the flexibility to tighten as needed. This makes the tripod with fluid head reliable even with heavy use over time. You can have great flexibility to create the perfect footage by adjusting the 2 leg angles and levelling with the centre column. The Manfrotto designed rubber leg warmer increase the grip and makes it very handy.

This tripod with fluid head also comes with the smallest and most lightweight video head in the Manfrotto range. The Befree Live Fluid Head has a dedicated sliding plate to perfectly balance the latest camcorders, DSLRs or mirrorless cameras with video capabilities and it has awesome fluidity on Pan & Tilt thanks to the fluid drag system inherited from all the Manfrotto Video head range. The Befree Live Fluid head is extremely portable and weights just 0.38kg, yet it can support a payload of up to 4kg giving the possibility to better control your movements during your video footage.
