Magnus VT-3000 Overview

The Magnus VT-3000 Tripod with Fluid Head and Tripod Dolly Kit by B&H provides you with a sturdy tripod, fluid head capable of handling DSLRs and small to medium sized camcorders and a dolly for creating smooth cameras moves on a flat surface. The fluid head features a 65 mm half ball for quick leveling adjustments and a QR plate. The fixed counterbalance works to keep the camera weight neutral on the head, so you don't have to fight the weight of the camera as you tilt. Separate pan and tilt locks secure the head, while allowing you to still move in one axis while locked down in the other.

The aluminum legs feature a two-stage design that is stable, and features a working range of 28.6 to 61". The mid level spreader avoids instability that can occur when using a tripod with a ground level spreader on uneven ground. The dolly accommodates the tripod, and each leg bar features over four inches of length adjustment allowing you to use the dolly with many different tripods. The wheels feature independent foot actuated wheel locks. When fully extended the dolly features a 31" doorway width, providing a stable base for your shot, and the dolly can still roll through most doors without having to be disassembled.

Two of the legs fold down to create a compact package for transport – the dolly folds down to just 17 x 5".

How long do you think this unit will last with moderate use? I read a review stating 1-2 years (and resulting in a leaky ball head and poor legs), but wanted to hear what some other people had to say.
Asked by: Jens S.
I've had mine for about a year and have punished it severely. So far, so good. Check back in a year and I'll tell you if I had problems.
