Cullmann Magnesit 519 Aluminum Tripod with 3-Way Head


Owner Notes:

-Supports 8.8 pounds (I've pushed this limit with a slider/Canon 5d mii and a zoom lens, and it still held up.)

This tri-pod is surprisingly good for video, and it so compact and lightweight that it is ideal for traveling (or for having a second set-up, if needed.)

Manually panning can be a bit tricky for a long shot, but you can get small smooth shots. But this tri-pod ideal for steady set-ups. (I've often used it for interviews.)

More details (from B&H)

-Maximum height of just beyond 5
-Has independent leg spread and 2-part center column, so it can operate at a very low working height of just 10.2" including the height of the 3-way pan/tilt head.

-It is named 'Magnesit' because it has extensive use of magnesium in the casings and fittings. Magnesium's a light and stable metal, helping to contribute to the 519's low weight of just under 4 pounds.

Replacement value: $85.00
