The Magnus VT-4000 Tripod & Zoom Controller Kit for Canon, Panasonic, Sony
features an aluminum tripod/fluid head system and a record and zoom controller for Canon/Panasonic/Sony LANC camcorders.
The tripod supports a payload of 8.8 pounds and adjusts to a maximum height of 59" in two stages. It includes a mid-level spreader and features retractable rubber feet with ground spikes underneath. The fluid head features separate pan and tilt locks and offers a full 360° pan range. It comes with a pan bar and quick-release plate with a 1/4" screw and locating pin. All the controls are located on the left side, leaving your right hand free for panning. A carrying case is included for the entire system.
The zoom controller attaches to the pan bar via a built-in mounting clamp and connects to your camera with an included cable. It regulates zoom at variable speeds with a pressure-sensitive rocker switch. It can also be used with Sony consumer cameras via an optional Magnus ACM-SAVR AVR adapter cable.
