          Mid-lever spreader will break

              Comments about Manfrotto 545B Pro Alu Video Tripod:

              If you do a little research on this particular tripod, you will learn that the mid-level spreader is very cheaply built, and eventually breaks forcing you to buy a replacement (537SPRB which retails for around $60-100).Check the reviews for that part on B&H and you'll see feedback from unhappy 545B customers.I have no experience with the ground spreader version, but I do know that the 536 carbon fiber tripod is much more durable.

                Comments about Manfrotto 545B Pro Alu Video Tripod:

                This is my first pro video tripod and I'm very please with it! I mostly use it with a jib setup which works very well - strong & stable. I also purchased the Manfrotto MBAG90PN Padded Tripod Bag to protect and transport it. I'd highly recommend a nice bag to protect this investment.

                Quality construction and design - I can see myself having this tripod for a long time!

                  Comments about Manfrotto 545B Pro Alu Video Tripod:

                  Great product only wish the leg clamps where easier to open and close, for fast change of camera height. Maybe i need to break them in a little bit. But unless you want to spend big money, i dont think you'd be able to find them out there. Like the ones i use in reality tv shows i work on.

                        Sturdy and reliable tripod legs. Not the lightest in the world but for the price they do the job well.
