About Miller's Cineline 70 Tripod System:
The heavy duty HD Mitchell Base 1-Stage Alloy Tripod boasts a fast and easy setup, with features that include a high-capacity leg-lock system, deploying turn-lock levers with rapid lock/release action, as a built-in bubble level to the heavy duty Mitchell Base. Designed with the strength and torsional rigidity to take on heavy payloads, the tripod system has a capacity of 82.7 pounds, providing stability and security when supporting varying rigging configurations. Additionally, the sturdy HD Alloy Ground Spreader, designed for rapid setup and pull-down, easily attaches to the Alloy Tripod and is optimal for use on flat surfaces.
Completing the system, the lightweight Cineline 70 Fluid Head, constructed of corrosion resistant alloy, offers advanced precision fluid drag control with ultra-soft starts, smooth stops and perfect diagonal drag transition, as well as counterbalance systems with "all-in-one-location" control layout. It is set to accommodate industry-leading camera mountings, including Arri, Sony, RED, and Canon, and it also features an Arri-compatible, side-loading camera platform, along with an optional, easy-to-fit Mitchell Base Adaptor to suit traditional Mitchell Flat Base tripods. Additionally, the fluid head comes equipped with an extended sliding range to promote quick and seamless rebalancing of the rig when lens and accessory changes result in weight distributions. As an added bonus, the fluid head offers dual side mounts for monitors and accessories, as well as an assistant's box front mount.
"Recognition with an award at the NAB Show from NewBay Media's Broadcast & Video Group is a strong vote of confidence and admiration from our leading industry publications," said NewBay Media Broadcast & Video Group Vice President & Group Publisher Eric Trabb.
