    I am in LOVE with this tripod, it is CHEAP, SOLID and The BEST! The quality of it is comparable to even those Tripods worth of 150$!
    It is very durable, the legs can be extended and even the Head can be extended to add more Length to the Tripod!
    The locks are of high quality and it is very easy to deploy and setup this tripod anywhere! Its comparably light in weight but that 3.3lbs weight makes it dependable when taking pictures in WINDY environments outdoor.
    Simply, IF YOU WANT A TRIPOD OF HIGH QUALITY FOR A LOW PRICE THEN THIS ONE IS YOUR ONLY CHOICE!

    Tripod bubble level becomes level, but camera clip level does not
    Camera clip does not keep camera level and makes camera lean off level to the right. Only way to correct is by pressing against hinge to the left.

    Does a nice job at a great price!

    Comments about Magnus PV-3310 Photo Tripod With 3-Way Pan and Tilt Head:

    Even with all the good reviews I still had my doubts because the the low price, but this turned out to be just what I needed!!

    I needed a trypod that was compact enough to travel with in my carry-on and sturdy enough to hold my Canon 6d while I film interviews. This typod checks off both of those. It fits in my slightly larger backpack or my small duffle. And it's sturdy while holding the cameras. The tilt and pan is nice and locks down nice and tight so there is no unwanted movement (an issue I was having with another compact trypod).

    Over all a great little typod and the price it excellent. I'm very happy with it.

        So far this tripod has been great! It is sturdy and holds my camera up well, even with my heaviest lens on it (although I still hold it to support it just to be safe). It is small, lightweight, and easy to carry around. I am really glad I bought this tripod, it works really well and is exactly what I was looking for.

        Good on the go light tripod. Only complaint that brings it to 4 stsrs is the pan 360deg is not smooth enough for stable video, but for the price you dont really mind.

            The tripod is really useful and have a competitive price! Is easy to use, lightweight and comes with a carrying bag. The only disadvantage is you have to turn the camera around to put it in the desire position.

              I'm using this product for taking pictures and videos. It's easy to use when it comes to mounting the camera. When taking videos, the panning ability is good, but sometimes, it doesn't pan as smoothly as I want it to from left to right. As in, it gets stuck sometimes. It's features were easy to figure out using the pamphlet they provide.

              You get what you pay for with this tripod. If there is absolutely no way to save up and get a professional one with a fluid head (200 - 300 for low end type) then this gives you basically a stick with a camera plate. It does have level bubbles at least. i got it for my kid so he could practice using one without breaking it,

                Comments about Magnus PV-3310 Photo Tripod With 3-Way Pan and Tilt Head:

                For basic use and stabilization, it does the job. The panning could be a little smoother, but it's not a major hindrance. It's very light and collapses to fit in my backpack when inserted diagonally. I like that the legs are sturdy and come out smoothly when you release the latch. For what it costs, it's a pretty good deal.

                              I used it at a wedding video I threw together on the cheap.Pros: It was cheap...$ and good quality for that price.Cons: it's only good for static shots, not stable for panning or anything. It's also a little flimsy when it comes to setting a DSLR on it. I don't really trust it.I'm going to get a manfrotto for stability and movement and such, this will just be my static shot tripod now.

                                This product was great. It was very light, so It was very easy to move around. Was very easy to use. I usually use this for family get together. They love to take pictures as a group and at a lot of different place. Being lightweight and easy to use was great.

                                  I'm so glad I purchased this tripod. The original tripod I purchased costed more than this one and was of horrible quality and broke within the first year of purchase. This is completely worth the buy! Very sturdy and durable!
