SPRINTER TRIPODS FROM MILLER SPEED SETUP

News Image
MILLER expect that setup and pulldown time for news crews could be halved as a result of innovative lock and spreader features on the new Sprinter Series of lightweight location tripods.
Shown for the first time on the Miller Camera Support Booth during NAB 2001, Miller's patented Sprint-Loks are side-action leg clamps that let users easily adjust both stages of a 2- stage tripod with one hand, without losing any existing control features like independent leg adjustment. Each tripod leg has two Sprint-Loks, co-located on the upper leg clamp. The result is quick adjustment, no more bending down, and no more accidental unlocking - the streamline design and single lever action ensure it. The Single Stage Sprinters feature a similar style side-action lever to adjust the tripods single extension.
Sprinter's setup speed is also increased by patented transport clips, safer and quicker than spring cord or Velcro when it comes to keeping legs together in transit. Miller's rugged mid-level spreader, with adjustable centre hub and telescopic extensions is the only spreader that lets you set up to any height, precisely and quickly.
The Sprinter ENG series is available in carbon fibre or alloy tubing, in 2-stage or single stage, with weight ranges from 6lb to 7lb. And despite their incredibly light weight, a newly designed 100mm bowl has increased the tortional rigidity of the tripod to ensure highly stable shooting, even under high wind conditions or while shooting telephoto.
