Manfrotto has announced a special Sony-specific version of its “top performing” Before GT carbon travel tripod.
How can you have a tripod specific to a single brand (you ask)? It’s all in the custom-made version of the Manfrotto 200PL-PRO camera plate, apparently.
This is the plate that screws to the bottom of the camera and then clips into the tripod head. The new plate is specifically designed for the Sony a7 and a9 to offer maximum grip, performance and stability at all shooting angles. Like the one in our picture, for example.
That’s not the only Sony customisation. There’s also an “exclusive” tube graphic to match the Sony design and colour scheme.
This is actually the second Sony branded product from Manfrotto, following a collaboration first announced in September 2017.
So if you’ve got a Sony a7 or a9, you want to flaunt it and you think the specially designed plate might be worth a shot (these are cameras you DO NOT want to slip and slide), you can take a closer look via the link below.
We’re told the Befree GT carbon’s legs are brand new for rmaximum lightness and sturdiness, and the tripod has a maximum payload of 10kg.
Price: £399.95 (UK)
