75 Sprinter II 2 Stage Carbon Fibre Tripod

Miller will introduce the 1620 75 Sprinter II 2 Stage Carbon Fibre Tripod, bringing the stability, torsional strength and reliability of Miller’s 100mm ball leveling 100 Sprinter II tripod into a new 75mm version.

The 75 Sprinter enables the leg stages to be adjusted independently or together via two adjacent leg locks. These locks are 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 66 pounds.

Competitively priced, it has a height range of 17.3—60.4 inches, a transport length of 27.6 inches and weighs seven pounds.

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.

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.
