From Manfrotto:
 
New Befree tripod to monopod solution and an additional option for their Befree Live expand the traveler segment.
 
Upper Saddle River, NJ – September 13, 2018 – Manfrotto, world leader in the photography, videography and imaging equipment and accessories industry, has expanded its travel tripod range with new additions to the Befree Collection.
 
The Manfrotto Befree 2N1 is the most versatile model in the Befree range, with an all-in-one solution that allows the tripod to be converted into a monopod in just a few steps. It offers a secure, easy and fast solution to convert the tripod into a monopod, while retaining the same exceptional stability afforded throughout the Befree collection.
 
The technology behind the safety and stability of the Befree 2N1 is a dedicated locking system that ensures the total absence of play when working both as a tripod and as a monopod. Furthermore, the conjunction cap on the center column of the Befree 2N1 firmly connects the tripod leg to the tripod column, giving shape to a solid travel monopod.
 
The Befree 2N1 is made to enable quick and easy switching from a tripod to a monopod. After a half-turn anticlockwise, a red rubber ring will appear on the tripod leg, providing the user with visual feedback that the tube can be safely removed for use as a monopod.
 
The Befree 2N1 is available in two versions: the Quick Power Lock version with levers, and the M-Lock twist option.
 
Additionally, following the great success of the Befree Live in both aluminum and carbon versions, Manfrotto is releasing the Befree Live with Quick Power Lock, dedicated to independent content creators who prefer the lever lock system.
 
All three models will be available late September at select Authorized Manfrotto Dealers
 
B&H has the Manfrotto Befree 2N1 tripods and Manfrotto Befree Live Aluminum Lever-Lock Tripod Kit available for preorder.

From Manfrotto:
 
Three premium models are being added to the award winning traveler collection including: Befree Advanced Carbon Fiber, Befree Live Carbon Fiber and the brand new Befree GT.
 
Upper Saddle River, NJ, June 5, 2018 - Manfrotto, the world leader in the photography, imaging equipment, and accessories adds three new solutions for travel photography and videography. With the release of the carbon fiber versions of the Befree Advanced, the Befree Live, and the new Befree GT family, Manfrotto continues to create for professionals on the go, blending maximum portability and stability.
 
Manfrotto’s Befree Advanced Carbon Fiber travel tripod features carbon fiber legs that ensure best-in-class performance, support, and rigidity. When trekking for miles to get that unique shot, every ounce in your pack matters and the Befree Advanced Carbon delivers top-notch stability while weighing just 2.75lbs. Like the aluminum version, this new model features Manfrotto’s updated 494 Center Ball Head with friction control. Manfrotto’s brand new Befree GT travel tripod, available in aluminum and carbon fiber, meets the highest expectations of professional photographers who want maximum performance even when they are traveling. The ergonomic design, inherited from the Befree Advanced, is the perfect combination of portability and impressive stability, folding down to 17 inches yet ensures flawless operation with up to 22 lbs of equipment. The Befree GT mounts the new Manfrotto 496 Center Ball Head with fiction control providing higher performance in terms of capacity and precision. Both the Befree Advanced Carbon and the Befree GT models feature the M-lock, the new twist lock developed by Manfrotto that enhances compactness and speed of use, making them the perfect solution to carry in a backpack and quickly set up. Moreover, both tripods feature the ergonomic leg-angle selectors, which can be set to three independent angles and are designed to operate easily with either left or right hand. The lightweight, solid spider features the Easy Link like Manfrotto’s professional 190 & 055 tripods, allowing photographers to boost their creativity by adding accessories such as lights, reflectors, or monitors. These new models mount a unique plate, the 200PL-PRO, which makes them fully compatible with the world’s most widespread standard head attachments: Manfrotto RC2 and Arca-swiss style.
 
Manfrotto’s Befree Live Carbon Fiber completes the range with a solution independent content creators have been eagerly waiting for: a lightweight, ergonomic video travel tripod, built to record amazing video footage using DSLRs, compact system cameras or small camcorders. This model’s small size and minimal weight, just 3lbs, does not compromise sturdiness or image quality. The Befree Live Carbon has the same new tripod legs as the photographic Befree Advanced Carbon with an added feature of a leveling column allowing for a horizontal set up on uneven surfaces. This model features the Befree Live Fluid Head, which has a fluid drag system on pan and tilt and keeps the camera perfectly balanced thanks to its sliding video plate. Easy to use and set up, the Befree Live Fluid Head has two intuitive knobs that lock and unlock the head’s pan and tilt movements separately. This outstanding kit allows videographers to express their creative nature with the confidence of a professional solution they can rely on.
 
Befree Advanced Carbon Fiber, Befree GT Aluminum and Befree GT Carbon Fiber are available at authorized Manfrotto Dealers. The Befree Live Carbon Fiber will be available late June.

In the video above, the first line the narrorator says is, "Manfrotto's created the XUME system, a revolutionary way of attaching filters to lenses." The only problem is, the way I see it, they didn't actually create the XUME system. Instead, they acquired the XUME brand in September 2016, which had already been on the market for at least 5 years. And let me be clear, there's nothing wrong with acquiring a company's technologies so that you can market them along with your own product portfolio. However, taking credit for the invention is... a bit tacky, in my opinion.
 
Regardless of who created the system, the now-Manfrotto-branded XUME filter products are quite intriguing, potentially saving you some time and frustration in the field when switching between filters. [Sean]

What are your thoughts? Would it make a difference if Manfrotto hired the inventor of the XUME system when it acquired the company? Let us know in the comments.

In addition, the Element Traveller Carbon Big Tripod features a detachable leg that, when removed and attached to the centre column, becomes a full size lightweight monopod.

Performance, Quality & Comfort, Redefined
 
Upper Saddle River, N.J. (June 13, 2017) – Manfrotto, a leading global innovator and manufacturer of premium photo, video and lighting support products and accessories, has launched the new Pro Light Bumblebee bags - perfect for professional and amateur photographers and videographers who work outdoors and want a reliable carrying solution. With this collection, users can stay comfortable in the harshest of conditions despite high temperatures, extreme cold or high humidity.
 
The new Pro Light Bumblebee family is an exceptional assortment of high-performance camera backpacks and messenger bags which perfectly embody Manfrotto’s Italian heritage. This family introduces Manfrotto’s unique-to-the-market breathable harness system that greatly reduces photography gear fatigue, allowing image makers to cover more ground and locate the best spots for the perfect shots.
 
Inside, the bags’ innovative designs safeguard the latest professional equipment options. The renowned Camera Protection System (CPS) dividers take extra care of camera bodies and lenses. They are fully adjustable and built to distribute weight evenly and avoid tension to the body.
 
The new Manfrotto Bumblebee backpacks are designed to take stress and heat off the shoulders, neck and lower back and feature Manfrotto’s state-of-the-art AirSupport breathable harness and back panel, adjustable sternum support, shaped hip and waist support systems. A side handle helps users put the pack on or take it off, while elastic side pockets keep water bottles outside the critical gear zone.
 
The removable Manfrotto CPS insert safeguards equipment right at the heart of the pack and keeps it organized with the efficiency of a portable studio:
 
  • The Bumblebee-230 PL backpack protects a gripped DSLR with a 70-200/2.8 lens attached and 10 additional lenses or an attached 400/2.8 with five additional lenses. In video configuration, it protects a disassembled modular camcorder like the Canon C100 with numerous lenses & accessories. It also fits a 17” laptop in its own padded compartment.
  • The Bumblebee-130 PL backpack keeps a high-end CSC or a DSLR safe with a 70-200/2.8 lens attached and eight additional lenses or an unattached 400/2.8 with three additional lenses. In video configuration, it protects disassembled modular camcorders like a SONY FS-5. It also fits a 15” laptop in its own padded compartment.
The entire internal space is padded to protect camera gear but can be also configured to accommodate accessories and personal gear as well. The main zipper comes with four pullers, which can be divided by a stopper into a top and lower compartment. Just open the top zipper for rapid access to frequently used contents from above.
 
A smart NeverLose tripod connection secures both longer and shorter tripods on the side of the pack. The connection straps are stitched in the side pocket and can be tucked away when not in use for a tidier appearance and to prevent straps getting lost.
 
The bigger Bumblebee-230 PL also features a lens pouch located in the waist belt. When not in use, the pouch can be flattened by tightening the webbing strap. (This feature is not available in Bumblebee-130 PL.)
 
Manfrotto’s new Bumblebee Messengers have significantly raised the bar for their category: a combination of flawless design and reliable performance, they meet all the needs of demanding professionals who travel light and fast. Like the backpacks, the messengers’ body-gripping fit and 3-point AirSupport harness system is breathable and perfect for prolonged outdoor use. The length of the strap can be rapidly adjusted using the EasyGrip buckle.
 
Despite their compact size, they hold a substantial amount of professional gear:
 
  • The Bumblebee M-30 PL Messenger protects a DSLR with a 70-200mm/2.8 lens attached and three additional lenses, a handheld gimbal (such as a DJI Osmo) and a 15” laptop in their own padded compartments, with all the necessary accessories.
  • The Bumblebee M-10 PL Messenger keeps a CSC/DSLR safe with a 24-70/4 lens attached and two additional lenses (including 70-200/2.8) and a handheld gimbal (such as a DJI Osmo) and a 13” laptop in their own padded compartments, with all the necessary accessories. It can also carry a full set DJI Mavic plus the Osmo gimbal camera.
These bags introduce the XtraSecure handheld gimbal-carrying solution - a stretchable band that holds the gimbal’s moving parts so it can be taken out quickly. The area can also be used as a traditional lens compartment if there is no gimbal in the bag.
 
Manfrotto’s Bumblebee Messengers feature a secure silent quick-access flap. When shooting in quiet environments (e.g. during a ceremony), apply the NoiseFree Velcro silencer to keep a low profile. The broad front organizer keeps everything on hand. There are two bungee cord straps to hang a small tripod, monopod or selfie pole, which are also protected by the front flap. The Bumblebee Messengers can hold a gripped DSLR body when you take out the laptop from its compartment.
 
All the bags of the Bumblebee collection come with a DuoFace sun/rain cover to protect from rain, reflect sunlight and keep the gear cool and dry all day long.
 
Key features:
 
  • Breathable design - comfortable carrying solutions for professional and amateur outdoor photography
  • Super lightweight construction - carry more lenses and stay comfortable even with prolonged use
  • High-performance materials - rip-stop fabric and the Manfrotto Protection System safeguard equipment
The following models are now available nationwide (links below go to B&H):

Earlier this year, we reported that XUME Adapters had been quietly acquired by Manfrotto. A spokesman for XUME told us at the time:
"XUME is a Manfrotto product as of September 2016. They haven't done a lot of press yet but will be doing an official re-launch soon."
It appears that Manfrotto is now ready to begin actively marketing the XUME adapters alongside its new lens filter lineup.
 
From Manfrotto:
 
Providing precision and ease to capture every shot
 
Upper Saddle River, N.J. (February 7, 2017) – Manfrotto, a leading global innovator and manufacturer of premium photo, video and lighting support products and accessories, has launched a new, groundbreaking Manfrotto Lens Filter Suite, a combination of Manfrotto’s successful high-quality lens filters and innovative Manfrotto XUME magnetic adapters. The new Manfrotto Lens Filter Suite enables professional and amateur photographers and videographers to avoid the hassle and frustration of changing filters while subjects wander or light slips away. With the Manfrotto Filter Suite, photographers instantly and precisely connect the filter to their lens so that they never miss the perfect shot. The Manfrotto Lens Filter Suite is comprised of a Manfrotto Lens Filter, a Manfrotto XUME Lens Adapter and Filter Holder plus an optional Cap (available only for 77mm diameter). It is the perfect choice for long exposures, wedding photography, macro, architectural photography, fine art photography – any style requiring the use of filters.
 
Manfrotto’s camera lens filters are built to the highest quality standards. They feature flawless multi-coating which minimizes reflection and maximizes light transmission, consistently delivering the effects photographers wish to achieve. Each filter is provided with a practical, reusable storage case, ensuring the highest level of protection off-camera. Depending on the model, Manfrotto filters feature reliable water-repellent, oil-repellent and anti-static characteristics.
 
  • UV filters block out UV light, preventing it from entering the lens, reducing blurring, haziness and blue casting.
  • Circular Polarizer filters enhance color, contrast and saturation as well as removing undesirable reflections from non-metallic surfaces.
  • Neutral Density filters help control exposure times by reducing the amount of light hitting the camera sensor without altering the color of the scene.
  • Protect filters provide maximum protection against scratches, oil and moisture, without affecting overall image quality.
Manfrotto XUME Adapters are the revolutionary magnetic solution which securely locks filters onto lenses, quickly and easily. Photography gear stays safe in-use with the filter magnetically secured to the lens. Manfrotto XUME accessories are safe for the lens’ focus mechanism, media cards, drives or other electronics.
 
Unique to the market, Manfrotto’s XUME Adapters:
 
  • Install in an instant.
  • Are secure; no moving parts and completely safe to use.
  • Have very low profile rings and are completely unobtrusive.
Manfrotto XUME Filter Holders and Manfrotto XUME Lens Adapters are now available nationwide in eight sizes: 49mm, 52mm, 58mm, 62mm; 67mm, 72mm, 77mm and 82mm. The Manfrotto XUME CAP is available only for the 77mm size. Manfrotto Filters range in price from $19.99 to $134.99 and Manfrotto Xume Adapters range in price from $10.99 to $34.99.

XUME Adapters, the magnetic quick release system for lens filters, was [seemingly] quietly acquired by Manfrotto in September of last year. When I contacted XUME to ask whether Manfrotto had taken over the brand or if it was simply a distribution partner, a spokesman (David) for the company said:
"XUME is a Manfrotto product as of September 2016. They haven't done a lot of press yet but will be doing an official re-launch soon."
So what will this acquisition mean for the XUME brand? If I had to guess, I'd say that XUME products may benefit from increased promotion and wider availability in the months to come. Though, only time will tell. [Sean]
