The most compact video kit, dedicated to videographer on the go. The Manfrotto Be free Live is easy to carry everywhere thanks to its small size and minimal design. It fulfils the increasing customer demand for a lightweight tripod that is easy-to-carry for video recording with a DSLR, compact system cameras and small camcorders. A high-quality compact travel tripod that fits into carry-on luggage and backpacks. Thanks to the unique folding mechanism, the legs fold perfectly around the head and the sliding plate attachment. In the closed position, this product is only 40cm long, which means it's highly portable. Be free Live's small size certainly doesn't compromise on sturdiness and image quality. It guarantees very smooth movements thanks to the new Be free Live Fluid Head, featuring a fluid drag system on pan and tilt and keeping your camera perfectly balanced thanks to the video sliding plate. It has an impressive payload of up to 4kg, ensuring stability with larger equipment and sturdiness even with longer-zoom lenses. Borfee's patented leg angle selectors allow you to quickly choose between two positions, offering together with the levelling column the maximum versatility for camera positioning and levelling.

Straight out of the box the screw on my first unit was bent to the point that it was partially snapped. The moment I took the tripod out of the box, saw the bent screw and tried to twist it the shaft sheared off leaving me with the end of the screw in hand. No worries I thought, I'll just RMA it. Amazon was awesome and I had my replacement within a few days.
After 3 long days of use over the course of a few weeks I went to lock vertical pan on my replacement unit only to discover the head of the pan adjustment screw was missing. I don't know how it broke but it did. All I can say is that when the unit is folded up it is far too easy for pressure to be applied to this hollow shaft screw that is obviously poorly designed in diameter and placement. When you need to worry if pressure is going to be applied to the screw while this thing is packed that's not good, it's a travel tripod after all.
Otherwise the tripod is great, I replaced the head with a 502 for now which is overkill in the weight department so I'll probably look to put a 500 on it instead. Needless to say I have no faith in the Beefree video head itself so I'm not sure what I'll do about getting the screw fixed if it's only going to break again.
I got this travel tripod for smooth video on my G85 so picking up squealing noises from the tripod head is not going to work out. With the weight being more than I like and the setup not as fast as I'd hoped for, this unit is unfortunately going back for a refund.
My one gripe with it is the head itself is not smooth for panning. You can tighten it which on other tripods I have help to give a silky smooth pan but it jerks on this one, so you have to loosen it up all the way and have less fine control on the pan. Tilting does a bit better a little tightened but not much. My solution is to get a separate cheap smooth head and throw it on this and you've got yourself a great setup.
