Miller Camera Support, a leader in the production of innovating camera support solutions, ventures to the mi-Atlantic to display its range of run-and-gun tripod systems to on-the-go videographers at the third annual Digital Video Group Broadcast and Technology Showcase on Tuesday, May 19 at Wyndham Virginia Center Crossing Resort in Glen Allen, Virginia.
At the forefront of Miller's award-winning solutions to be showcased are Miller's Air Tripod Systems, the ideal, lightweight travel companions for professionals who are shooting both videos and photos in rugged, outdoor conditions. Compact, adaptable and durable, each system consists of an Air Fluid Head, offering professionals authentic Miller fluid head pan and tilt technology, and a variant of the Solo 75 2-Stage Tripod. The Air Fluid Head, composed of magnesium alloy housing and precision components, comes with two positions of selectable counterbalance and a dual pan handle option. Both systems have the ability to support payloads ranging from 4.4 pounds (two kilograms) to 11 pounds (five kilograms).
The Air Alloy System (3001) consists of the Air Fluid Head and the Solo 75 2-Stage Alloy Tripod, which is designed to provide the single operator with a complete run-and-gun system. Selectable leg angle locks ensure rapid stabilization at any height, with the tripod boasting an impressive range, capable of extending from 9.2 inches (234 millimeters) to 64 inches (1625 millimeters). Its sturdy alloy, magnesium design ensures durability and its new rapid lock system can lock or unlock with less than one quarter of a turn.
