The Magnus PV-5330 Photo Tripod With 3-Way Pan and Tilt Head is a stable photo tripod made from anodized aluminum that can support loads up to 6.6 lb (3.0 kg), and is ideal for mirrorless, 4/3, and DSLR cameras. The three-way pan and tilt head has a quick-release plate and a bubble level to keep your camera properly aligned to the horizon. The PV-5330 tripod system weighs 3.40 lb (1.54 kg).

The 3-section leg design allows you to adjust the height of the tripod from 23.7" (60.2 cm) to 63.8" (162.2 cm), with the sliding center column fully extended. A mid-level spreader provides improved stability on uneven terrain. The PV 5330 offers a full 360° pan range. 

The included quick-release plate features a standard 1/4"-20 mounting screw. A carry case is included for storage and transport.

3-Way Pan and Tilt Head
The pan and tilt head facilitates smooth camera positioning and precise alignment.
Telescoping Legs with Flip-Locks
The flip-locks quickly secure the telescoping tripod legs, while the center brace adds stability by connecting the legs to make them more rigid.
Rapid Adjustment Center Column
The twist-and-lift rapid center column allows quick and easy camera height adjustment.
Quick-Release Plate with Bubble Level
The quick release plate is the swiftest way to mount and align your camera to the tripod head. A bubble level ensures that your shot is properly aligned.
Sure-Grip Rubber Feet
Rubber feet provide maximum traction on all surfaces.

    I specifically use this tripod for my cell phone to conduct/record interviews. When I pan Left to Right it flows smoothly, but If you tilt up/down it does not flow as smoothly. However, I still recommend it based upon it's price and keeping in mind that it is for still photography, not necessarily for tilting etc. when recording motions. You can check out the website [@] for our documentary which includes a Trailer and see the upcoming interviews through the social media links.

    I picked this tripod up for a vacation I was about to take. I chose it based on recommendation from a sales rep at the store. My only requirements that I mentioned were low price, stable, and could hold my camera (weight of about 1.2 kg). Based on my testing at home, it perfectly suits those needs, holds the camera very well, has a nice lever for tilting and panning the camera, and has a quick release attachment.

    However, I quickly realized that this tripod was too big and heavy for me to take with me on my trip. I ended up returning this item with the intention of picking up a more compact and lighter tripod.

    Another note: this might be a con for some people, but the head is not detachable, so you can't upgrade/replace it even if you wanted to.

    Great tripod

    By Kenney

    from Ct

    Comments about Magnus PV-5330 Photo Tripod With 3-Way Pan and Tilt Head:

    My over all experience at b and h was great. From the time i got there someone was there to help me find what i needed. He was very patient spending over an hour with me helping me find the perfect tripod in. My price range. Eventually i decided to go with this one and it was a great choice. It is very sturdy with my camera (canon t3i with a 75-300mm lens) and the tripod is easy to use and produces very steady pictures .

    Good to get those night time shots with long exposures not recommended for video mainly because of the head not being fluent but all in all solid construction it will hold up!

    Comments about Magnus PV-5330 Photo Tripod With 3-Way Pan and Tilt Head:

    I bought a tripod for 4 times the money from a large membership club that had 5 star reviews, when I received it, it was flimsy, the legs were screw tighteners and I knew it wouldn't last. I returned it and bought from B&H. Totally pleased with the service and quality.

    I bought this tripod because I had lost the mount to my previous tripod. It is sturdy and well built but also not too heavy.

      I have used mostly on hard / flat surfaces for about 2 weeks.

      The good: Easy to set up, sturdy.
      The bad: on the heavy side, a bit bulky.

      Summary: Taking into account the price, this is a good tripod for flat surfaces. I will not recommended for on-the-go since is bulky and heavy.

          I have several larger tripods that I use for medium and large format cameras, but I wanted one that was light and compact that I could pack in a suitcase when I fly. This is a wonderful tripod, lightweight and very well made. I was surprised to get one this well built for the price.

            For an affordable tripod, this one does the trick. Great for indoor use or events that don't require you to use it on uneven surfaces, because it doesn't come with metal spikes on its legs. As a plus, it comes with its own carry bag. However, some people may consider it a bit heavy so I would not recommend it for photographers who want a light, travel tripod.
