The Manfrotto 526-1 Fluid Head with 645 Fast Twin Aluminum Tripod System with 2-in-1 Spreader and Bag combines the 526-1 fluid head with the two-stage aluminum Fast Twin tripod legs and a 2-in-1 mid-level/ground spreader, creating an effective combination of stability and smooth, precise control. The legs feature a 100mm half bowl with a removable 75mm adapter. The head supports up to 35 pounds, and it features 3 steps of pan and tilt drag with a zero setting for free movement, independent locks, as well as a continuous counterbalance range of 17.64 to 33.07 pounds.

The aluminum legs are durable and strong and feature the Ultra L-Lock that enables you to lock and unlock the legs using only one locking lever located at the top of each leg, so you don't have to bend down to unlock the legs. The legs feature three locking positions for spreader-less operation, or you can use the included spreader as a mid-level or ground spreader when you set the legs to free movement. Included with this system is a padded carrying bag for storage and transport.

Manfrotto 645 Fast Twin Leg Video Tripod with Ultra L-Lock Mechanism (Aluminum)

The Manfrotto 645 Fast Twin Leg Video Tripod with Ultra L-Lock Mechanism is a two-stage aluminum tripod with a 100mm bowl and a single leg lock mechanism for each leg. A 100 to 75mm bowl adapter is included, so you get the flexibility to use 100 or 75mm video heads. The tripod features twin spiked feet with removable rubber overshoes, allowing for use on various terrain as well as on flat, smooth surfaces. It supports up to 55 pounds and has a maximum working height of 61.8", minimum height of 10.6", and a folded length of 28.7".

The tripod legs are selectable between free movement or having three locking leg positions so you can use the legs without a spreader. The optional Manfrotto MVASPR2N1 2-in-1 spreader can be attached if desired.


Leg Locks

The legs feature Manfrotto's Ultra-L Lock for the Twin Fast tripod legs. This allows you to lock and unlock both leg stages using only one locking lever located at the top of each leg, so you don't have to bend down to unlock the legs.

Spreader or Spreaderless

The legs incorporate a locking mechanism that enables the legs to move completely freely, suitable when working with a spreader, or to lock at one of three angles, 70, 50, and 20°, which is suitable for use when working without a spreader.

Rubber Feet

You can use the included rubber feet to protect delicate surfaces from the tripod's foot spikes.

100 to 75mm Bowl Adapter

The legs feature a 100mm bowl and include a 100 to 75mm bowl adapter. This provides the flexibility to use a video head with either a 100 or 75mm leveling ball.

Manfrotto 2-in-1 Mid-Level/Ground Spreader

This 2-in-1 Mid-Level/Ground Spreader from Manfrotto can be used as either a mid-level spreader or a ground spreader with select Manfrotto tripod legs.


The spreader keeps the tripod legs from flying apart, providing you with a stable platform
The spreader folds, which allows you to leave it attached to the legs for transporting or storage
Use as a ground spreader when working on hard, flat surfaces
A mid-level spreader allows you to work on uneven terrain without sacrificing stability
