    This tripod is nicely designed and very robust.

    The head is pretty nice, as you can see on the picture, its not really a true fluid head, its a pan/tilt model, but it does work very fluidly.

    I will not have to replace this tripod any time soon which will save me money and time.

    After days of searching and reading over 30+ reviews (no exaggeration) of every brand and website in Tripod-em which I'm sure you did as well!?
    I decided on the Davis & Sanford MAGNUM XG Grounder Tripod with 3-way fluid pan head in Black.
    It's Heavy duty 3-section and 3-way fluid head, perfect for field or studio, for digital, photo and video cameras weighing up to 12 lbs (is what it says on the front of the tripods short booklet).

    What I found-
    The tripod feel- sturdy and allows my Nikon D90 to sit on a quick release safely and it has a nob that allows me added safety because it's adjustable. I am recommending this tripod to everyone as each of the 3 levers allow you to pan,tilt and adjust the friction/play of this tripod. It comes with a black caring case too. To put the tripod into the case- you must remove the 3 handles that unscrew with ease. So far so good!!

    I wasn't sure about this product because no one wrote a review(usually I never buy if there aren't any reviews) but for the price and the specs., I had to give it a try and I'm so happy I did! I will never over look a product without a review ever again.

    I am using this tripod for general photography and video recordings as my Nikon D90 DSLR has a movie mode. I can use it for macro too because the legs allow me to adjust to uneven,short and weird angles. The legs open in two separate sections as most tripods offer. The legs can be adjusted to four different angles at the very top. You'll find four silver buttons. While holding the button adjust the legs, release and your ready. The center post has a bottom hook which can be used to hang a sand bag or your accessories. Great option if your shooting in unstable conditions or climates. Options are the key to successful photographs and video.

    This is a well-made tripod for the price. Initially I was concerned that the pan head had way too much friction for smooth operation. I then found an adjustment nut that wasn't listed on the manual card. Loosening up that slightly made a big improvement. The handles are also a bit short for my taste, but I'll get use to it. Very light and easy to transport. Overall a good value for the money.

    This is a great tripod for all low-budget filmmakers. It's extremely sturdy, the head is very smooth, and it is very tall. The quick release is plastic, but it's really thick. I haven't worked with many fluidheads before, but I found it a little strange that the release that allows you to raise the center column has to be open in order for you to do a pan, the pans are extremely smooth though. Panning and tilting at the same time is no problem at all, both work very smoothly and provide just enough tension to keep you steady, but not enough to cut up the motion.

    When I received mine, the zipper on the case was broken(it's not a fancy case, just like any other material case), that was a little frustrating. One of the legs was jammed, but with a little bit of pulling it worked fine. Nothing other than that was damaged, I expect those types of things anytime I buy online.

    The head is pretty nice, as you can see on the picture, its not really a true fluid head, its a pan/tilt model, but it does work very fluidly. When I first set it up I thought the roll was more fluid than the tilt, but you can mount the camera on it sideways and turn the tilt into the roll and visa versa.

    To all you DSLR filmmakers looking for a budget tripod: Stop looking, this is the one you want.

    I have to hand it to the person that wrote the only review that was on this item when I bought it. I'm very picky about the quality of things but also don't have a rock star budget if you know what I mean. This item is everything she said it is. It's quite impressive for the price. I was very pleasantly surprised. I've used tripods not so much less in cost than this one that aren't anywhere near as good. The tri-axis fluid head is really good. It takes a little getting used to when working the motion but once you learn the feel of the tripod, you're quickly on your way and it's very smooth. This item is very stable and durable. The locking legs are awesome. The head has multiple levels for the perfectionist. Well, I don't have more to say without babbling but I'm very happy with this item and will say it's worth every penny.

    When I took the tripod out of the bag, it looked great. But one of the legs was stuck, and just will not extend. After struggling with it for some time, I took the locking clips off, and pulled hard. The tube came loose -- removing quite a bit of the black paint from the tube from the top to the bottom. My initial suspicion was that I had broken something in the process. But it seems to work fine after I put it back together.

    Beyond that initial extremely negative impression, the tripod seems alright. Fully extended it provides more than adequate height for me. The locking clips for the legs work great so far. The head seems to move quite smoothly, though my typical usage will not really tax the head. The structure seems to have fairly decent integrity, and does not feel like its going to fall apart. I really like what they have done with the locking mechanism for the plate holding the camera. It gives me a lot of confidence that I am not going to accidentally drop the camera.

    The initial failure left a bad taste in mouth, and I can't really express anything but a guarded opinion at this time. I will try to update this review after I have used the tripod for sometime about how it holds up. At this point, the jury is out.
