    Manfrotto 546B reviews

    546B Pro Video Tripod with Mid-level Spreader is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing I shoot video mostly with a 504HD head and I use these legs. The mid level spreader snapped on the first day. I bought a ground level spreader after that. I've had to tighten the fasteners as they began to slip. My rig is not very heavy ( a 5d Mk2 with a juciedlink attached and a Canon 28-300mm lens mostly). This tripod looks the part but I am disappointed with the overall construction. I'm switching to the 536 4-section carbon fibre. I love Manfrotto products as I own a few of their tripods but this one I would not recommend. To make matters worse the 504HD head is not that great either. The leveller fell out and the covers fell off. By the way my tripod is only six months old and i look after my gear.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's a beastie I'm a pro photographer/videographer. I wanted a tripod that would hold both by DSLR and JVC cams and give me fluid motion. This one does that. It is rock solid. Not hard to level. I shot in a slipper, muddy construction site last week without problem. It is heavy though and hard to manage without a proper case. Forget throwing it over a shoulder.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Adequate for most shoots Good tripod for studio and interview work. The spreader arms are awkward to set up and combined with the two releases for each leg would make this unit clumsy in the field when fast set-ups are required. However, this tripod is sturdy and a good match for my Manfrotto 504 HD head and 524 zoom which is the way I will use it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Legs Manfrotto 546B Tripod is some the best tripod legs I have used thus far. I have been working in Film since 2005 and I have used all kinds of set ups. I would brake down the item, but they would all get five out of five in my book.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible, leg locks worn out under 2yrs The tripod is JUNK. I am so disappointed with it, I have used it VERY lightly with a Panasonic AF100 and the only added weight was a Audio Technica shot-gun. In other words WELL within the spec'd weight limit. I have used Manfrotto products for years, and have always had a positive experience, but this thing is not, in any way, as well-built and secure as the 3191 I replaced. I wish I could get that one back. Now I am stuck with a tripod that looks brand new, but will not support more than 4-5 pounds without one leg sliding out. The worst part is the way the lock is designed, you cannot tighten the mechanism! If you do the cheap plastic bracket pops-off the pivot screw.If you are pro and use anything heavier than a un-accessoriezed DSLR, avoid this thing like the plague. Note in the picture how the cheap plastic lock pops off the screw if you tighten, once this happens you have yourself a $ piece of scrap metal.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Legs I use these legs as support for any and every camera I've touched. They truly are a sweet set of legs. Very sturdy, very strong and very industrial. No loose parts here. Great feet and locking rings. Pretty tall set of legs too. Slap a head on these beauties and you got your dream girl. Toss the 504 Fluid Head and you can go ahead and curl up to coziness. Easy and sweet. Maybe a little thick to travel with though...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from NICE Not a Vinten but still nice. I wish it had a bit more heft so as to hold still when smaller cameras are on it - hence 4 starts.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Tripod for Event Work I have used this tripod about one year as this is written in June of 2015, and it's going strong. It is a bit difficult to handle without a carrying case, but using a piece of velcro strap around the legs or even a bungee cord will keep them together for transport. I shoot a good deal of indoor video in auditoriums and on occasion, have to set up in a row of seats. The mid-level spreader can be removed to allow for one leg to be in the row in front of you and the other two legs in the row you're standing in. That's been a good thing for me, YMMV. Construction of the tripod could be better, but considering what the prices are these days of some models, I consider this to be my main tripod. I often have a Panasonic HPX370 in a 504HD head, and it works well.
