The Davis & Sanford 3-Section Fusion Tripod with 3-Way Fluid Head is a full camera support system for either photography or videography. With an integrated 3-way fluid head that features a pan bar, the lightweight tripod is also well-suited for pursuits such as birdwatching.

Composed of an alloy of high-strength plastic and lightweight aluminum, the Fusion tripod reaches a maximum height of 61" with its 3-section legs and geared center column fully extended. The tripod system weighs only 3.7 lb and supports loads up to 8 lb.

The Fusion head features a built-in fluid system, which effects smooth movements for when you're shooting video or following a bird in flight. Movements are possible in two tilt directions, including portrait tilt. The easy-grip pan and tilt bar works with the calibrations for pan and tilt to ensure perfect leveling and precise adjustments and moves.

The quick-release system is about as quick as possible: Just pull the lock release lever, and pull out the plate. Featuring a video pin, the quick-release plate is non-keyed, meaning it can be inserted into the head as it faces any direction.

Folding down to 25", the Fusion tripod system includes a carry bag.

Counterweight hook at the bottom of the geared center column allows you to hang a camera bag or other weight for added stability under uneven loads or in windy conditions
Adjustable leg support brace with lock enhances the tripod's stability
Non-slip rubber feet are adjustable

      I'm an independent documentary filmmaker so I have to be ready to take the moment at any situation. I'm testing this product on a project and till now it's doing its work very well.

      Although, there is a small issue with left pan I already figured out how to solve it. It takes some time to learn how correctly using this gear but worth it. Tilts are suprisingly smooth and it's not heavy.

      Thanks BH, good service.

      This does not have a fluid pan. I figured for the price it wasn't going to have a "True" pan like my pro fluid head but this was worse than the $19 tripod that I put WD-40 on to make it pan smooth.

      The tilt, on the other hand, is VERY fluid. It works like I expected.

      I bought it for still photo work and as a backpack tripod for when I wanted to do video work in the mountains. It works great for stills which is wy I'm keeping it.

      The carring bag is nice.
      If your looking for a video tripod save for a Pro VISTA. It's worth the extra weight and smooth pans.

      Comments about Davis & Sanford Fusion 3-Section Tripod with 3-Way Fluid Head:

      I was pleasantly surprised by the sturdiness, features, and quality of this tripod for the low cost. It is light weight and easy to use. As an amature/enthusiast, this will be my go-to tripod.

          Comments about Davis & Sanford Fusion 3-Section Tripod with 3-Way Fluid Head:

          For what it is, a cheap, light and compact tripod, this deserves 5 stars. It is short enough to fit in a 'legal' carry on bag along with your long weekend clothes (just barely), and light enough not to overload your check in bag full of longer trip clothing. It is cheap enough that if it does get damaged in handling, or stolen while traveling, it isn't such a big deal. The fluid head makes it an expectable video tool while the 3 way head allows for vertical photos.But it is very inexpensive and plastic so don't expect the solid foundation and points of movement that you should expect from an expensive tripod like I use when I'm not on a casual flight. I find the compromises are very acceptable and this tripod performs better than I expected for the price and plastic. I know there are times I would not have had the advantage of a tripod with me if this were not easy to fly with.

              Comments about Davis & Sanford Fusion 3-Section Tripod with 3-Way Fluid Head:

              This is a cheap tripod, that is expected but two of the three legs Fell Out when i expanded them for the first time. The legs are press-fit into the main body and refuse to stay in. They will need to be repaired with metal screws or epoxy to keep them firmly attached. Once re-attached the tripod works as expected.

              The build quality is flimsy but if you need a CHEAP tripod. go for it.

              You get what you pay for, so if you're looking for a quick fix this will work great. This tripod is durable, light weight, and portable. The downfall is that the fluid head does not detach. Other than that I'm pleased with my purchase.

                  I bought this to try some panoramic stitching and make sure I like the process before dumping a bunch of money but it's pretty good quality for still shots so I won't have to replace it anytime soon. I really like the fact that I don't have stoop to get the shot and would recommend it to anyone with a bad back.

                              I'm an independent documentary filmmaker so I have to be ready to take the moment at any situation. I'm testing this product on a project and till now it's doing its work very well.

                              Although, there is a small issue with left pan I already figured out how to solve it. It takes some time to learn how correctly using this gear but worth it. Tilts are suprisingly smooth and it's not heavy.

                              Thanks BH, good service.

                              This does not have a fluid pan. I figured for the price it wasn't going to have a "True" pan like my pro fluid head but this was worse than the $19 tripod that I put WD-40 on to make it pan smooth.

                              The tilt, on the other hand, is VERY fluid. It works like I expected.

                              I bought it for still photo work and as a backpack tripod for when I wanted to do video work in the mountains. It works great for stills which is wy I'm keeping it.

                              The carring bag is nice.
                              If your looking for a video tripod save for a Pro VISTA. It's worth the extra weight and smooth pans.

                              I use this tripod with my Panasonic AF100 and it handles it well. I Havent been running a lot of extras on the camera so the weight is relatively light but this tripod could definitely handle some added weight.

                              I use this for video recording with an HD camcorder. The head movement is smooth but I was surprised at how much pressure it took to move it. Once you get used to it, it's not a problem. The handle is a bit long which makes it very touchy when you're zoomed in. That too can be gotten used to with light adjustments instead of a full grip. Good construction and a great tripod for someone on a budget.

                                  I needed an inexpensive fluid head tripod for a small camcorder - this one is terrific for the price - its not a $500 fluid head tripod - but for working with a small camcorder or DSLR - fills the bill.

                                  B&H shipped is fast and well packed. Always buy from B&H. Product appears fairly well made, but have not run it thru the ropes yet. Maybe a little too much plastic. Quick release plate works well, but should be better labeled to get a spare as it was very hard to track down (model no. should be cast into the part on the bottom. So far, no complaints.

                                    I use this for DSLR HD Photography and Video
                                    It is well built, light, and sturdy and a 10YR Warranty!
                                    Coulld be a little heavier.
