        This little guy is a perfect "pre-pro" tripod for my beginner videographer students. It has all of the primary features of the pro tripods but in a small, inexpensive package. The trade-off is to keep the price within range of a beginner videographer, the parts and pieces are not pro quality; even so they are pretty well designed. So if you're just getting started, this is a much better option than a "wanna-be" tripod or a still camera tripod.

        Pan felt great, tripod felt a bit cheap

        The pan head on this felt great and it was pretty compact when collapsed. But fully extended the legs felt a bit unstable and wimpy.

                  I bought this to take overseas in my luggage. It is lightweight but sturdy enough to use to take night photos of cities. It is also easy to carry around and comes in its own case.

                  Comments about Magnus VT-100 Tripod System with 2-Way Pan Head:

                  I bought this tripod for use with two things: my camcorder and my digital recorder. It works like a charm with the camera - it's stable, solid, and works beautifully. Unfortunately, the mounting plate on the tripod doesn't work so well with the recorder. The screw on the plate is just a little too long, so when the screw is tightened down, the recorder still spins freely on the mounting plate. The only other con is the resistance of the fluid head - even when fully released, there's still a LOT of resistance when you try to tilt/pan - more than I would normally expect. However, that's probably something I'll learn to get over.The lock on the spreader is also quite handy, and the guide marks on the head are also a great addition. I also love the ball-mounted rubber feet - makes securing the tripod a breeze.Aside from that issue, it's an outstanding tripod - money well spent.

                  For only $ this is a great tripod. Compared to other tripods in the same price range this one blows away my expectations. It is a very steady tripod and for the most part is very robust. I have only had one problem with it in that the plastic around the extendable center column did crack on me once but it was nothing a little bit of super glue couldn't fix!

                        This is a nice lightweight fluid head tripod. I'm using it for videotaping meetings in conference rooms. The tripod fits in a small bag for easy transport. The thing that wasn't so great was that the head had some 'play' in it, causing a jerky picture on screen. I had to choose from about 5 tripods in stock to find a good one with no play in the fluid head.
