Manfrotto Befree MKBFRA4-BH Review

The Manfrotto Befree MKBFRA4-BH tripod camera stand is among the latest and most convenient types of camera stands to be produced by Manfrotto. There are a number of other tripod stands produced by this company in the past and all of them have served the customers adequately.

 

Many people expect a lot from these tripod stands as this company is known to produce high quality and durable tripod stands. Will the Manfrotto Befree MKBFRA4-BH surpass the expectations of the customers? Let us take a look. Some of the attributes as well as some of the things you will notice on first seeing and using the tripod stand is that it is very light and compact. This is a very big plus as it makes the tripod stand very portable and easy to use. One thing that is for sure is that you will definitely have to use the tripod stand at many different places and thus the portability aspect plays a very vital role.

 

Another attribute of the Manfrotto Befree MKBFRA4-BH is that it is very stylish. In fact among all the other tripod stands ever produced by Manfrotto, the Manfrotto Befree MKBFRA4-BH is the most stylish. It is also worth to note that unlike many of its peers; the Manfrotto Befree MKBFRA4-BH is made of aluminum and not plastic. This is the reason why the tripod stand is very light yet still very stylish. Aluminum is also a very strong metal despite its light weight and thus you can be sure that the stand will last for a very long time without getting damaged. The Manfrotto Befree MKBFRA4-BH was made for photographers who are extremely busy and love travelling.

 

This is because the stand can be easily folded and carried in a luggage backpack. The tripod has a unique folding mechanism where the legs fold very neatly and easily around the head. When fully folded, this stand is only about 40cm long. This tripod stand supports a maximum weight of 4kg, thus it can also be used with longer zooming lenses. The ball head is more solid and compact so as to support this weight comfortably. However, the manufacturer ought to have done better than this when it comes to the weight that the tripod stand can support. There are other stands on the markets which do better than this and hence in order to compete favourably with its peers, the supporting weight ought to have been increased. The legs can also be adjusted into two different inclination angles so as to provide better positioning of the camera.

 

One of the most challenging aspects when it comes to using this tripod stand is that it is quite tricky to release the legs. This is primarily because of the distance between the legs. Nonetheless, once you get used to using this stand this wouldn’t be much of a challenge. This is a good tripod stand to purchase and also a good deal for your money.

  • The Good :
    compact, light, good quality, 10 years warranty
  • The Bad :
    quite short for taller people, supports less weight
Our score:
4 / 5
