      Comments about Manfrotto 526,545GBK Professional Video Tripod System with 526 Head (Black):

      I needed to get a tripod system capable of supporting my very heavy URSA with all the cinema trappings, which could get my payload near 30lbs. There are very few choices under 2K but this one seemed to have some decent reviews so I went for it. I've used it over 10 times thus far and it performed very well. I've used some of the more expensive and popular tripods prior to this and while those other ones responded differently, I think it boils down to the operator knowing how to get the best from a tool. Once I understood how to get the tripod to perform, it was perfect.

          I just shot two projects with my new tripod and tripod head combo - and am very happy! The fluid head pans and tilts as smooth as glass, and the tripod is rock solid yet amazingly adjustable.

              For the money, I am extremely satisfied with this tripod. This head holds my RED ONE with ease and allows smooth operation. The photo shows a mid level spreader but it showed up with a floor spreader. I prefer a floor spreader so I'm good with it.

              I use a Sachtler tripod at work, and this is a cheap alternative to that awesome and expensive tripod.
