Miller Camera Support Equipment

“Established in 1954, Miller Camera Support Equipment designs, manufactures and delivers professional fluid heads and tripods to the film and television industry, providing support for the world’s leading camera operators.

A family-founded company, Miller skyrocketed into a globally recognized brand shortly after father Eric Miller and his son, Bob, developed and patented the first fluid action head in 1946, which they designed to create smooth pans and tilts when shooting film in the field. Since the company’s inception in 1954, Miller has been a pioneer in camera technology, revolutionizing film and television by granting operators the freedom to shoot creatively and to obtain shots once deemed unattainable. Less than one year after the company’s commencement, the Miller Fluid Head made headlines when the New York Times reported that Miller was on the cusp of technological innovation.

By 1958, Miller was exporting the heads worldwide, which included sending the first tripod to Hollywood, forever changing the landscape of cinematography. Currently celebrating sixty years in the industry, Miller is a longtime, global leader in the field of contemporary camera support and continues to stay true to its roots, developing solutions for the broadcast market that are purpose-built for industry professionals who desire a new dimension in camera support technology. In fact, since its launch, the company has delivered more than 100,000 tripods and fluid heads, acquired several patents and won numerous awards for its exceptional quality and design. Today, Miller’s tripod and camera support systems are frequently used during electronic news gatherings (ENG), electronic field production (EFP), and digital video applications by the world’s leading networks, production houses, corporate, educational and government institutions in more than 65 countries.
