Miller to Showcase Cineline 2090 Tripod System and Compass 23 Fluid Head at CCW

Miller Camera Support will demonstrate its Cineline 2090 Tripod System and Compass 23 Fluid Head at CCW 2015 in New York City. The new cost-effective system provides cinematographers with stability, plus smooth and consistent pan and tilt.

The complete Miller Cineline 2090 tripod system includes a new HD Mitchell Base One-Stage Alloy Tripod and HD Alloy Ground Spreader to complement the Cineline 70 Fluid Head. The Compass 23 Fluid Head is an affordable entry model into the 100mm ball leveling range.

It is intended for use with medium size large sensor cameras to provide users with the portability, rigidity and professional features they seek in a lightweight system.

The Cineline 2090 features several setups and payloads, as well as illuminated rear-mounted controls on the system's Cineline 70 Fluid Head. This allows all the controls to be seen and easily adjusted on a shoot located in a dim setting.

The 2090's high-capacity leg-lock system, deploying turn-lock levers with rapid lock/release action, as well as a heavy duty base with built-in bubble level, offers a fast and easy setup.

Built with the strength and torsional rigidity to take on heavy payloads, the 2090 tripod system has a capacity from 9.9 pounds (4.5 kilograms) to 82.5 pounds (37.5 kilograms), providing stability and security when supporting varying rigging configurations. Designed for rapid setup and pull-down, the sturdy HD Alloy Ground Spreader easily attaches to the Alloy Tripod and is optimal for use on flat surfaces.

Constructed of corrosion-resistant alloy, the lightweight Cineline 70 Fluid Head of the Cineline 2090 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 mainstream camera mountings, including ArriSonyRED and Canon, and 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. The fluid head offers dual side mounts for monitors and accessories, as well as an assistant's box front mount.
