    Manfrotto 526,545BK reviews

    526,545BK Professional Video Tripod System with 526 Head (Black) is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Clumsy, Heavy, not for the News Business Manfrotto has destroyed the simplicity of the tripod with this unit. It's heavy, clumsy, cannot be carried easily, and all around awful. The spreaders flop around aimless between the legs, and are attached with cheap rivet pins. The head is heavy, and makes the entire unit unbalanced and clumsy to carry. There's no easy way to carry it one handed.This tripod is a chore in the news business when we have to setup and break down quickly. It should take no longer than 10-15 seconds to setup and balance a tripod, this unit takes around 1-2 minutes! The head is nice and fluid, but that's about it. The legs are bulky, and those darn spreaders make it impossible to position it quickly or evenly. We would rather have our old leaky Vinten tripods than these things. It's not worth the plastic and steel it was made from. Just terrible. The only way it would be good, is if it was in a studio and never had to be broken down or carried again. I would not recommend it to a friend, unless I did not like that friend.
