Davis & Sanford Magnum XG13 Tripod With FX13 Head

Product Features
TRIPOD
  • First with unique on/off counterbalance control

  • Rugged professional grade, full-featured medium weight tripod

  • Delivers high performance and outstanding stability for still imaging and video applications

  • Bonus: High-quality tripod bag included

  • HEAD
  • Ingenious FX13 head provides impressive versatility

  • Unique and extremely useful built-in counterbalance that can be turned on and off to accommodate video outfits in a wide variety of sizes, shapes and weight distributions

  • In the “off” position, the tilting action feels smooth and well damped, as a well designed precision fluid head should

  • Turn the knob to “on” to activate built-in counterweight and it provides a smooth, well-damped tilting action but with increasing resistance the farther you tilt it backward or forward past the mid-point. This evens out the tilting action, and prevents it from being under-damped at the extremes, an important consideration when shooting with large, heavy cameras, especially pro-caliber video cameras and DSLRs with long lenses

  • It also prevents the camera from swinging forward or backward in an uncontrolled manner so you can shoot with confidence. To underscore the versatility factor, it comes with two quick-release plates, a standard 1-1/2 x 1-5/8-inch, and an elongated 1-1/2 x 3-inch to accommodate practically any camera

  • Features
  • Extra-sturdy yoke and legs ensure maximum stability

  • FX13 3-way fluid head with unique counterbalance control

  • 2 built-in bubble levels in head and one in yoke

  • 3-section adjustable aluminum legs with handy snap locks

  • 4-position independent leg-angle adjustments on all legs

  • Quick-Lift 2-section center post for rapid adjustment

  • Rubber let tips for added stability on slippery surfaces

  • Extend to full 6' height

  • Minimum shooting height 8" for macro shots

  • Back of head
    MagnumXG13 with legs extended
    FX13 with long quick release plate (included)
    MagnumXG13 with long lens
    MagnumXG13 perfect for outside shooting
    MagnumXG13 wide stance for vibration free shots

    I had high expectations after ordering this tripod and I wasn't disappointed. This tripod has everything that I need to get started in my post retirement hobby without breaking the bank, and I'm sure that someone on a professional level would too appreciate it as well.

    first of all it's well built, heavy duty without being too heavy, at 6.7 lbs it's light in comparison to some of the higher end tripods that Davis & Sanford makes. And at the maximum height of 72" I don't have to bend over with my bad back to get that great shot, or use my camera to video record my grandchild's concert. The tripod comes with a heavy duty very fluid 3 way head that is as smooth as silk when panning, and get this, it comes with a ten year warranty!

    Also included is a very durable storage bag, an extra quick release plate,three built in bubble levels and a allen wrench to adjust the tension on the quick release lock as you please.

    It supports up to 13 lbs and it comes with adjustable leg clamps, a center post that has a hook to add extra weight for stability if needed, and you can adjust each leg to different angles and as low as 8" for tight macro photography.

    I absolutely hit a home run with purchasing this tripod after looking for weeks, and so will you!

    I don't normally purchase an item that only has 1 review (and a copy/paste job from another website at that) but I was on the hunt for a decent tripod and it had to meet certain criteria in order to qualify.

    My requirements were:

    1 - Must have a fluid head
    2 - Be able to extend to 6'
    3 - Be $200.00 or under (absolutely all the budget would allow)

    I did extensive searching and researching and I narrowed it down to 2 choices :
    the Davis & Sanford MAGNUMXG13 Magnum Grounder Tripod with FX13 Head
    or the Manfrotto 055XDB Basic Tripod Kit (Black) with 128LP Micro Fluid Head

    While the Manfrotto did meet the requirements listed above, I found it to be lacking when compared directly to this Davis & Sanford tripod.

    the Manfrotto 055XDB Basic Tripod Kit

    The sticks:
    Pros:
    Tall ! max height: 70.3"
    Independent leg spread
    Fluid head

    Cons:
    Leg locks type: Wing nuts
    No level

    The head:
    No quick release mount. Camera must be attached directly to the head.
    No level
    No counterweight
    No storage bag

    And if I remember correctly, comes with a 2 year warranty. (this is neither a pro or a con - just sayin'.)

    Davis & Sanford MagnumXG13 Grounder Tripod With FX13 Head

    Pros: (in no particular order)

    Cheaper than the manfrotto
    Max height 6'
    2 levels on the head, 1 on the tripod
    Comes with storage bag
    Goes as low as 8"
    Independent leg spread
    Leg locks type: snap locks
    Built-in counterweight
    Comes with 2 different sized mounting plates.
    10 year warranty

    So the Davis & Sanford MagnumXG13 seemed a better choice for me and I placed my order.

    very happy with this one, i wish I discovered it before. I have 3 slik tripods and they are good but the leg locks can break if you are not careful when carrying around. I was looking for a sturdy one that doesn't have the problem of plastic pieces breaking up and that is high (the sliks I have they are 54" tall without extending the center post which I don't use like that because they can fall) and i bought this one thanks to another reviewer. So far very happy with it, even though I have small fingers and it's hard for me to unlock the pan head on the side. I love it that it doesn't have a plastic handle with a plastic knob. I love the fluid head on the front view instead of the top underneath the ball head because I'm short and can't see it lol...it comes with a 10 year warranty ! can't beat that! it comes with short instructions to unlock the pan head.
    You are going to need to carry 3 tools, 2 are included but you will need like a screw driver but it has a star shape instead, I have no idea what is the name or number but I will ask my husband and will post later. That tool you will need to tighten the leg locks... let me tell you i'd take that anytime over having broken plastic pieces and not being able to use that tripod anymore. Panning it's smooth. I use my tripods for video mostly.
    UPDATE:the pan head got stuck a few times, and long story short i did put WD40 in it ,and that fixed it. I posted the pictures of the tools you need to tighten up the legs. They get loose with frequent use. And I bought a second tripod also. The second picture shows the included tools that come with it, but the plastic piece is useless, you need to buy a 8mm socket and a ratchet, or the screw driver that has the square tip where the socket goes to, and also the screw driver that has like a hexagon shape on the end. Sorry I am a woman and I don't know the names...lol...

    This is a very sturdy tripod. It's definitely got some heft to it so if you are planning on hiking up a mountain with your tripod I would probably go with something lighter but for most purposes it's not bad. Certainly not as bad as Manfrotto tripods with similar design, those things are terribly heavy. If you drop one one your foot it'll turn into dust. I love the legs on this thing! There is no bar between them, you just press a silver button at the top of each one to unfold them. This allows for all sorts of setups and angles. It came with two plates, a standard plate and a longer one. I'm putting the long on on my large format camera and the smaller one on a GH4. The panning is very smooth, there is resistance in the head to when you pull on it the camera doesn't move too quickly from point to point. This keeps your shots from looking jerky. Over all it's just lovely.

    Though I have used Manfrotto extensively through my school this is the first nice tripod I've bought for myself and I've gotta say, I'm extremely happy with this purchase. I was debating between this set up and buying this Manfrotto kit: http://www.amazon.com/Manfrotto-MT055XPRO3-Aluminium-Tripod-MVH502AH/dp/B00KXC3TEE/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1422151385&sr=8-5&keywords=manfrotto+legs&pebp=1422151415037&peasin=B00KXC3TEE for about $100 more. I don't feel like I'm missing anything getting this tripod instead. It's well built and it feels like it will last for quite a while.
