  • Excerpt: This tripod is a bit heavy but its worth it. It's very solid, well built so you can rely on it. I wish i could unfold it faster. I still cant figure out what's the fastest way to do it. But again, i really love. At it looks good!

Stout and Stable

  • Excerpt: Use this with a 502 HD head and it is very stable. I use it with an AG-AC160A and it is both smooth and steady. The extra weight gives me room to grow. Setup can be complicated at first, with the mid-spreader, but it is easy to sort out.
  • Pros: Good Stability, High Weight Limit
  • Cons: Cumbersome

Adequate for most shoots

  • Excerpt: 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.
  • Pros: Good Stability
  • Cons: Cumbersome

So far, so good!

  • Excerpt: I've only had this for a few weeks, but so far I like it. I've not had a problem with the spreader, but I am careful when I set it up and tear it down. The height is great -- we shot a wedding last week and had no problem getting the camera up over most people's heads. The leg latches are very stiff, so this isn't a super fast setup.
  • Pros: Good height, Good Stability

Great Legs

  • Excerpt: 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.

Beautiful Gear

  • Excerpt: I purchased the 546 as my primary tripod for our Red Scarlet X in the most rugged conditions for high performance sports cinematography. It's surprisingly light and versatile on the side of a mountain or in the studio.

Disappointing

Lummo, B&H Photo
9 July 2011
  • Excerpt: 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.
  • Pros: Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
  • Cons: Weak Construction
