    Magnus VT-200 reviews

    VT-200 Tripod System with 2-Way Pan Head is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for. Duh. Well, here we go, once again: You get what you pay for! I was in the market for a video tripod with a fluid head, and my budget was around 150.-- This would have been achievable, for instance with the Davis & Sanford Provista 7518B, but I really didn't like its leg design, and I was also kind of hoping for some portability ... so I gave myself one of those save up for something really good, and go for something affordable for now-talks that never turn out well. And it didn't. I should have known that what feels like a reasonably smooth pan in the store doesn't necessarily amount to anything remotely like a fluid head in reality. My first pan across the NYC skyline was a painful wake up call. Stutter, stutter, stick. I'll still use this tripod for stationary shots, I won't cry when it breaks, and I'll spring for the real deal as soon as I can justify it with a project that makes it necessary. This thing is okay, I won't think twice about using it in the rain or in other unsafe conditions. The only part that I truly can't stand is the flimsy plastic base plate with the cork layer. I mean ... come ooon!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every cent I own 8 or 9 tripods, but a super light travel tripod that would fit in my carry on luggage did not exist in my inventory. My camera weighs nearly 6 pounds and I frankly expected to be disappointed in this little Magnus model. I'm happy to report that it handles my camera and the panning is very smooth. I didn't expect to be able to balance a heavy camera like mine and it does take one hand on the pan handle and the other on the friction tilt knob, but it does work. This won't be my go to tripod, but for traveling light I am quite satisfied.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from My second Tripod I use this as my second Tripod for the static camera shots. I run 2 camera systems and when I first set this unit up found it not so steady. The tilt when actioned had a little slop so if you you hope to do sweeping pans with a tilt you will get this slop then motion. So don't plan on this being your high end one to go to at this price. It will work fine as a backup.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Useful I am a professional videographer, and I bought the tripod for wedding videos. After testing out the tripod, it is impossible to do a smooth pan without it sticking on the initial movement. I tried loosening all the knobs to get it moving more freely, and it didn't give. Even for the low price, its not worth the purchase. It would only be good for a still shot or a photographer, not for videography purposes. I bought a Targus to replace this one and I love it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Beginner Tripod I needed a tripod to take videos and this is a great starter tripod for any beginner! My camera is not very heavy, nikon d3300 so I didn't need a tripod to carry a lot of weight. I was able to attach a lens and external shotgun microphone with no issues. It can pan up, down, and side to side, which is great for video and I haven't had any issues with it, so far. THe movement is fluid for the price range.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tripod for the buck This is my second tripod in two years. The first one, from another brand name, broke in less than two years. It had a ton of issues, mostly due to parts being made out of plastic. This tripod has plastic parts too, but it seems to be a tad-bit sturdier than that other brand. It has a nice fluid head, although a bit snug at first but I expect that to loosen with wear and tear. So far it has provided good stability for my Canon VIXIA and is getting the job done. However, this tripod is not meant for heavier cameras, so check the weight of your camera to make sure it matches the specs for this tripod. Legs are sturdy and it comes with extra foot pads. The only real annoying thing is the carrying bag it came with - just a weeeee bit too small for the tripod. Also, some of the parts are plastic, which will probably break in time. But hey, for the price who cares, right?!?!?! Sure far it's doing it's job as described on B&H. And my camera likes it a lot better than that other tripod I own....which is now broken and deserves a proper burial...RIP. Good product, I'd recommend it for novice to semi-pro videographers-filmmakers that need a tripod for their smaller cameras.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nah not really A bit plastickie but I bought this as a light back up so works well. If you have a big camcorder you will have issues keeping it level as I found out with the JVC HM-200; the cam was just too top heavy for the head. Other than that you get what you pay for.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magnus VT-200 I needed a good quality light weight tripod for shooting church video in a tight location. This tripod worked well with my Sony NXR-NX100.
