In September 2017, MANFROTTO (part of Vitec Imaging Solutions), world leader in the photography and videography, imaging equipment and accessories industry announced its collaboration with Sony Imaging Products & Solutions Inc.(SIPS), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sony Corporation that is responsible for its consumer-use cameras, broadcast/professional solutions, medical business and FeliCa.
The agreement consolidated both companies’ positions as the innovation leaders in their respective sectors and has the objective of offering a compelling set of devices for those passionate about imaging, professional photographers and videographers, under the brands Gitzo and Manfrotto.
At the 2018 edition of Photokina, Manfrotto unveiled the Befree GT carbon α professional travel tripod, a special version of Manfrotto’s top performing tripod for travel photography specifically developed for Sony’s α camera users who want maximum performance and stability in all shooting positions.
The new travel tripod is the second photo support of the Befree collection released by Vitec Imaging Solutions for Sony’s α camera.
Manfrotto Befree GT carbon α travel tripod features a customised version of the Manfrotto 200PL-PRO camera plate specifically designed to perfectly match α7 and α9 cameras from Sony, ensuring increased grip for unbeatably sharp images, even in the most angled camera shots. This special version is also enriched by an exclusive tube graphic that matches Sony’s α camera design and colours. Its brand new carbon fibre legs guarantee maximum lightness and sturdiness up to 10kg payload.
Manfrotto Befree GT carbon α is the best travel tripod for passionate photographers who want maximum performance in a lightweight format. It is the optimal combination of portability, solidity, easy set-up and operation. It is built with the unique goal of enabling individuals to express their talent using their Sony’s α camera with the confidence of a professional support solution.
