Magnus VT-300 Overview

The Magnus VT-300 Video Tripod with Fluid Head is a lightweight and portable tripod system for shooting stable videos with DSLRs, small camcorders, and any other cameras up to 15 lb.

A built-in fluid effect video head pans a full 360°, tilts up and down, and features independent pan and tilt locks for fixed-position shots. A pan bar and a snap-in quick release camera plate are included. The quick release plate features a 1/4"-20 camera mounting screw, a registration pin, and an anti-skid mounting surface.

A center column raises or lowers at the turn of a hand crank to let you fine-tune a height without adjusting the tripod legs. A mid-level spreader keeps the legs steady when you adjust the tripod, and it locks to keep the legs secure once you've set the tripod in position. Both the center column and spreader are integrated. The maximum height of the tripod with the center column raised is 64.3".

The tripod legs extend at two leg stages at the release of flip-locks. The legs feature replaceable rubber feet that provide grip on hard or slippery surfaces. An internal bubble level will help you position the tripod evenly on uneven ground. A carry case with a shoulder strap is included and will let you conveniently carry the tripod over your shoulder when you're travelling about.

Magnus VT-300 Reviews

I bought the Magnus VT-300 Video Tripod for my local church. I film our livestream and I'm very impressed with it! Easy to setup and easy to use! I'm very happy with it!

Awesome tripod for iPhone filmming

I have a Cartoni and two Manfrotto tripods but I needed something light, easily transportable that doesn't attract a lot of attention. The Magnus VT-300 checks all boxes. For iPhone filming, it gets the job done. It's so small it can fit in a carry-on luggage. The panning is smooth and it telescopic up about 15 inches to get those over-the-head shots. Great purchase and the price is right.

Very smooth action.

I love the smooth action of this tripod. It is great for a small camcorder or DSLR up to a couple of pounds. It is inexpensive and this is my second one (other still works great). I am quite happy.

Great for the price

I don't always need a heavy full size tripod, and this one seems to great because of the light weight and versatility. Fluid head works nice too.

Magnus VT-300 Camera/Video Tripod

I own two of the Magnus VT-300's. They are used for video of water polo matches. The unit sets up quickly and collapses as quick. Even though the legs are plastic they hold up well. I would suggest purchasing the plastic/cork camera/video head if you are using more than one device with this tripod. I've had more than one water polo ball hit the tripod yet the legs hold firm.

was a gift

Does this tripod work with the Sony aii?
Asked by: BK
I’m sure that it will. I have a GH-4 and it works well with that camera. The plate does not allow you to move the camera forward or back to balance the camera but even so, I like the tripod. It’s inexpensive and light but I like the action on the head in tilting and panning.

question

Magnus VT300 says it will support 15lbs. I have a VT4000 that is much sturdier and it says it supports up to 8.8lbs. What is the difference?
Asked by: Allison
According to the makers of the tripods: The difference is the counterbalance on the VT-4000, vs failure weight on the VT-300.So the VT-4000 will counterbalance a camera load of 8.8 lbs without assistance.The VT-300 has no such spring, but will securely hold 15lbs in position with the locks engaged without any slipping.

It appears that the style of quick release plate included with this tripod will not work with the Zhiyun Crane Gimbal. However, you can use a Manfrotto 323 style of quick release plate with the Zhiyun Crane, as linked here: https://bhpho.to/3pI0xY8
