    Manfrotto 545B reviews

    545B Pro Alu Video Tripod is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mid-lever spreader will break 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.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Decent when it works but unreliable. I've primarily used this tripod for weddings. I've simply listed below the things I don't like about it below. - One of the latches eventually lost it's fluidity. Even after trying to adjust and grease it up, it became very tight and was so frustrating to open and close. - One of the legs eventually lost it's grip and would start to lower and drift down despite only holding a small Panasonic GH5. - Heavy for on the go film making. - It's clunky and the leg spread sometimes locks up on itself and makes it annoying to spread and close the sticks. I would never recommend this to any other film maker. Pro or amateur. I ended up buying Manfrotto MVT502am. It's lighter and doesn't hold as much weight but at least everything works. It may not be the best but you know what you're getting from it every time you use it. No unexpected failures as with the 545.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flexible & Stable 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!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Manfrotto 545b w/ mid level spreader 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid, feels great. Sturdy and reliable tripod legs. Not the lightest in the world but for the price they do the job well.
