    Comments about Magnus PV-4310 Photo Tripod With 3-Way Pan and Tilt Head:

    This tripod is sturdy and durable. Good for those who don't use tripods often and want something reliable but inexpensive. I would take caution when using this outside. Take care to weigh it down.

      Comments about Magnus PV-4310 Photo Tripod With 3-Way Pan and Tilt Head:

      I had previously purchased a more expensive unit that was cheaply made and allowed the camera to move easily despite all adjustments being tight. This one was a much better buy and holds the camera solidly. No extraneous movement noticed during use. Great buy!

      Great Low-Cost Tripod

      By Tom

      from NY

      Comments about Magnus PV-4310 Photo Tripod With 3-Way Pan and Tilt Head:

      I've had this tripod for a few weeks now, and I am pleased with it so far. In contrast to other tripods in this price range, the PV-4310 feels sturdier, and supports the camera better. The camera doesn't wobble and it doesn't feel like the camera can fall out of the quick release.

      I originally wanted the PV-4330, but it was discontinued. This model is a bit shorter, but fine for my purposes. I only use this tripod indoors.

      Comments about Magnus PV-4310 Photo Tripod With 3-Way Pan and Tilt Head:

      As an occasional user of a tripod, a recent trip to Yosemite and Death Valley proved the worth of this tripod when using with my Canon Rebel and telephoto lens. It fit in my carry on bag on airline and is light to carry.The only drawback to this tripod is that I have to stoop down a little to use the viewfinder in the camera, but I knew this when I bought it. I wanted to keep it a certain length so I could fit it in my carry on luggage.If I used a tripod everyday I would want a much better heavy duty use one. If you are an occasional user like me, you'll like this tripod.

      Comments about Magnus PV-4310 Photo Tripod With 3-Way Pan and Tilt Head:

      Seems sturdily built for a small and inexpensive tripod. Held my old-school 35mm SLR and heavy 28-80 zoom with no worries. The two bubble levels are a nice touch. My main complaint is the rough pan movement. Even after loosening the knob beyond what should be sufficient it seems to stick and grind. Not a big deal for shots where you have time to adjust, but not recommended in situations where speed or following motion is important.

      Comments about Magnus PV-4310 Photo Tripod With 3-Way Pan and Tilt Head:

      Recently took up photography as a hobby and just wanted a simple tripod - nothing fancy, just something that did the trick - and this tripod suited my needs very well.

      Controls are basic and it's a nice compact size that can probably fit into most backpacks. I also like the ability to angle the plate-head horizontally so you can explore that aspect without having to go hand-held.

      It is an inexpensive, light-weight tripod, so no surprise it might feel a bit 'plastic-y' in terms of build, and for certain applications you might want to use a remote-trigger as it may be slightly wobbly (though you'd probably use a remote anyway for those situations :) ).

      Would recommend as an inexpensive, basic support solution for stills photography.
