Magnus VT-4000 Overview

The Magnus VT-4000 Video Tripod System & Universal Tripod Dolly Kit from B&H includes a 65mm bowl/ball tripod and fluid head system with a foldable, extendable, three-wheel tripod dolly for capturing smooth tracking shots. The maximum payload is 8.8 lb.

The tripod securely attaches into adjustable clamps on the edges of the dolly. The tripod system features an integrated mid-level spreader, independent pan and tilt locks, left and right pan bar mounts, a fixed counter-balance spring, spiked feet underneath retractable rubber feet, and an internal bubble level, and it includes a sliding quick-release camera plate. The quick-release plate can be adjusted along a +20/-25mm sliding range.

Both the tripod system and dolly come with carry cases.

Magnus VT-4000 Tripod System with Fluid Head

The Magnus VT-4000 Tripod System with Fluid Head is a stable, sturdy video tripod made from anodized aluminum that can support loads up to 8.8 lb. Overall, this tripod offers many features usually only found on more expensive models. The two-way fluid head provides smooth operation, and features a half-ball mount with a diameter of 65mm, with left and right pan bar mounts. It comes supplied with one pan bar. In addition, unlike most other heads in its class, all the head controls are positioned on the left side of the head, which leaves your right hand free for the panning handle. The VT-4000 tripod system weighs 7.9 lb.

Its 2-stage leg design allows you to adjust the height of the tripod from 27.6" to 59". A middle spreader and passive counterbalance provide enhanced stability to the entire system. The VT-4000 also has separate pan and tilt locks, and a bubble level for precision leveling. The fixed counter-balance spring incorporated in the head will help with smoother tilt movements.

Its provided quick release plate features a standard 1/4"-20 mounting screw with a video pin, and has a sliding range of +20/-25mm - to enable travel capabilities - essential in balancing uneven configurations. The head's tilt angle is adjustable from +90° to -60°.

Magnus DWF-2 Universal Tripod Dolly

The Magnus DWF-2 Universal Tripod Dolly presents a simple, affordable way to put your tripod on wheels. The dolly features 2" ball-bearing metal/rubber wheels that feature revolving assemblies. That means you can steer your tripod along any line imaginable to capture a smooth tracking shot.

The DWF-2 dolly bears loads up to 33 lb and features adjustable clamps to lock just about any size of tripod foot into place securely. Mounting a tripod is easy: Just line up each tripod foot and twist the thumb screws to tighten each clamp.

Each leg bar extends up to 4.9" to accommodate tripods of various dimensions, and flip locks secure the extension. Fully extended, the dolly has a doorway width of 31". With step-on locks for each wheel, you can easily transform your rolling tripod into a sturdy lock-down mount for your camera.

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

Step on the wheel locks to brake the spinning of the wheels and the rotation of the wheel assemblies
Spring-loaded stoppers automatically lock the legs in the open position when they're rotated out - easily pull them up to rotate the legs back into the closed position
Sturdy carry handle
Hook & loop strap to secure legs in a tidy package for transport
Carry bag with shoulder strap

This kit with the VT-4000 and a Universal Dolly is both nice and easy to use. It should not take you very long to figure out how to set up the kit. It will also be easy to set up and breakdown in the future.

This tripod has an 8.8 pound load capacity and works well with options at or under that amount. If you keep the total load of the FS100 with lens and accessories under 8.8 pounds, yes you can.

question

can the head be removed to make a flat base head?
Asked by: Thuan
The VT4000 fluid head is a 65mm bowl mount head. Of course, this can be removed from the tripod legs to reveal a 65mm bowl mount for other heads, but it can not be separated to reveal a flat base with 3/8 -16 thread unfortunately.
