The Manfrotto 545GB is a two stage, twin leg, lightweight aluminum video tripod. This tripod guarantees more torsion rigidity and payload (55 lbs.), and improved shooting performance, due to optimization of the upper and lower collars. The collars have also been redesigned to be aligned with the single tube tripods. The die cast aluminum crown features a built-in 4-inch interface bowl, which can be adapted to a 3-inch one. The tripod is equipped with a floor–level spreader.
