Manfrotto’s Befree GT carbon travel tripod and ball head kit is an incredible solution for professional and hobbyist photographers.

Compact and lightweight, This tripod is strong and stable enough to handle more of the cameras.

I have been using it many times with my FUJIFILM X-T3 and my FUJIFILM GFX50R medium format camera.

I recently went to visit my family in France with the new FUJIFILM GFX100 medium format – from far the bigger camera set that i have. The Manfrotto’s Befree GT carbon travel tripod had no issue for to handle the GFX100.

I have been using the Manfrotto’s Befree GT carbon travel tripod in various countries: Myanmar, Japan, Singapore, France.

“Best Travel Tripod !”

Conclusion of Manfrotto Befree GT travel Carbon Tripod review

To be honest, when I have to shoot in my studio I definitely use my Manfrotto MT190CXPRO4 Carbon Fiber Tripod. It is more stable and feels more comfortable in the adjustment.
But for my travel, no hesitation – The Manfrotto’s Befree GT carbon travel tripod is the best. In the past, sometimes I will not bring a tripod with me for traveling due to the size.
Best compact solution! Now I just take it!
