Miller to showcase fast-setup Sprinter II tripod
The Miller Camera Support Equipment Sprinter II ENG tripod offers setup and pull down time that’s half of what was previously available as a result of various innovations, including its patented locking system.
The new Sprinter II ENG tripod range features Miller Sprint-Loks-Dual, side-action leg locks that let users independently adjust both stages of a two-stage tripod using one hand. Each tripod leg has two Sprint-Loks co-located on the upper leg clamp. They allow for high-speed adjustment and eliminate accidental unlocking and bending down to adjust the lower tripod stage.
Sprinter’s setup speed is also increased by patented transport clips, which are safer and quicker than cord or Velcro when it comes to keeping legs together in transit. The tripod’s mid-level spreader, with adjustable center hub and telescopic extensions, delivers the ability to fine tune height precisely and quickly.
