The Tiffen Company today unveiled its redesigned Davis & Sanford Magnum XG13 Tripod and FX13 Head. Billed as “the digital imaging industry’s first advanced DSLR/video tripod developed with a switchable counterbalance to prevent the common problem of camera dumping,” the XG13 tripod is manufactured with a powder-coated and anodised finish to resist abrasion under heavy use. Shipped with the Magnum XG13, the FX13 Head is manufactured with the new Davis & Sanford advanced, built-in fluid system. The fluid system is ideal for DSLR shoots in video mode as well as shooting stills of fast-moving subjects like birds. The head has a maximum load capacity of 13lbs and has three spirit levels to ensure perfect levelling. The three-way head has 360-degree pan, 90-degree down, and 60-degree upward tilt plus landscape and portrait tilt mode. The Davis & Sanford Magnum XG13 Tripod and FX13 Head are available today through Tiffen resellers for a street price of $189.
