Miller To Unveil New Products At NAB

News Image
Miller Tripods Ltd is to showcase a full lineup of new products at NAB 2019 (Booth C8721), including the 75 Sprinter II 2 Stage Carbon Fibre Tripod, the debut of its HDC Tripods, a new line catered for cinematographers, as well as two new camera plates.

The 1620 75 Sprinter II 2 Stage Carbon Fibre Tripod brings the stability, torsional strength and reliability of Miller’s well-proven 100mm ball leveling 100 Sprinter II tripod into a new 75mm version. The 75 Sprinter employs Miller's patented design, which enables the leg stages to be adjusted independently or together via two adjacent leg locks. These locks are conveniently located at waist height to eliminate the need for the user to bend down or stretch up, which is crucial when speed and occupational health count.

The 75 Sprinter II 2 Stage Carbon Fibre Tripod is best suited to be used in conjunction with Miller’s CompassX and range of DS Fluid Heads in ENG and EFP applications, and has a payload capacity of 30kg (66lbs). Competitively priced, it has a height range of 440-1530mm, a transport length of 700mm and weighs in at 3.2kg (7.0lbs).

With four spreaders to choose from, the 75 Sprinter is capable of meeting various project needs. From its standard Sprinter II ground spreader, which has many years of proven reliability, to its new carbon fibre or alloy construction mid-level spreader, which are fully adjustable, lightweight and provide maximum height range. Miller is also offering a new variant, a competitively priced alloy construction spreader, which offers less functionality compared to the more expensive options available.

NEW HDC TRIPOD RANGE FOR CINEMATOGRAPHERS
The Heavy Duty Cine (HDC) range of single stage tripods have been designed specifically for cinema shoots and are available in three sizes — tall, standard and short with various mounting platforms, including Mitchell base, 150mm or 100mm, and can be configured with a ground or mid-level spreader. The tripods in this line are designed with alloy construction and have a black coating to minimize reflections off the legs during a shoot, a feature widely requested by users worldwide.

The HDC Tripods all feature rotary leg locks to reduce slippage and integrated stainless steel foot spikes to protect against corrosion. These tripods carry a payload capacity of 95kg (209lbs) and pair well with Miller’s Cineline 70 and ArrowX Fluid Head as well as a brand-new upcoming line of fluid heads that are specifically designed for cinematographers. The HDC Tripods feature integrated transport clips that make it easier to pack away the gear. Available now, there are 18 variations of HDC tripods to choose from.

Miller also developed new camera plates, which enable additional sliding ranges to suit specific rigs, providing more flexibility for its Air, DS and Compass X Fluid Heads. Available in two versions, 120mm sliding range for larger-format broadcast and production cameras, and a 30mm version for DSLRs. The new 1207 camera plate provides an extended sliding range of 120mm, compared to the standard 1204/5 camera plates range of 60mm. The increased flexibility allows greater versatility in the balancing of various camera rigs. In order to cover various shooting needs, Miller has developed a short camera plate, 1209, that features a sliding range of 30mm, specifically designed to fit smaller cameras most suitable for DSLR's when used in "on tripod video mode" and handheld photography during the same shoot.
