Will this unit support the weight of a Nikon D780 ...

Will this unit support the weight of a Nikon D780 with a 18-300 FX lens attached ?
Asked by: S.E.
The weight of both the Nikon D780 and the Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm would be under the weight limit of the Magnus VPH-20 Video Pan & Tilt Fluid Head (11lbs). It would hold it up just fine.

question

will the sony vct-vpr1 remote handle work with this fluid head?
Asked by: Adam W.
I'm afraid not, that handle only works with the Sony Head that it comes with. However you could clamp the Sony RM-VPR1 Remote Commander to this Tripod Head's Pan Handle instead, B&H # SORMVPR1.https://bhpho.to/2h7YKvD

question

I am looking to put this head on a Davis and Sanford grounder tripod. Do I need any extra hardware?
Asked by: Austin H.
If you have Grounder tripod like B&H # DATCF4SGT you will be able to remove the head and connect the VPH-20 to it.https://bhpho.to/2jTmKS5

question

Will the Magnus VPH-20 Video Pan & Tilt Fluid Head fit a Zomei Q555 tripod? Also does this head come with a quick release plate or would I need to order one separate? Thank you.
Asked by: Dan F.
This head will fit on any tripod, either 3/8 or 1/4 screw. This depends on whether you can get the tripod head off. We do not carry that tripod but the opinion is you can remove the ballhead and then you can put the Magnus in place.
