Sprinter II - Speed without compromise
01 April 2006
Setup and pull down time for news crews has been halved as a result of Miller's innovation. The patented locking system on the Sprinter Series of lightweight ENG/location tripods has new features with the Sprinter II.
Patented Sprint-Loks: dual-action and high-speed!
The New Sprinter II ENG tripod range features Miller Sprint-Loks-Dual, side-action leg locks that let you independently adjust both stages of a 2-stage tripod using one hand. Each tripod leg has two Sprint-Loks, colocated on the upper leg clamp. The result: high speed adjustment, no more bending down to adjust the lower tripod stage, and no more accidental unlocking - Miller's designers have updated the streamline design of the levers to bring you a more ergonomic feel to the level-lock action. Single Stage Sprinters feature a similar Sprint-Lok side-action lever for single stage control.
Sprinter's setup speed is also increased by patented transport clips - safer and quicker than cord or Velcro when it comes to keeping legs together in transit, while Miller's rugged Mid-Level spreader, with adjustable centre hub and telescopic extensions, is the only spreader that lets you fine tune the height, precisely and quickly while also giving you the advantage of an extra 100mm of adjustment.
Balanced Inline carry handle:
And only Miller's Sprinter II tripod has a flexible, inline carry handle, positioned to ensure balanced carriage of the Sprinter with any 100mm ENG head such as Miller's Arrow30, Arrow ENG or Arrow HD head. The inline handle offers rigidity in the grip, with a flexible, inline Cordura attachment to the leg and lets the handle recede when the tripod is packed down.
The Sprinter II ENG series is available in carbon fibre or alloy tubing, in 2-Stage or Single Stage, with tripods weighing from 2.5kg to 3.5kg and 45kg carrying capacity. Despite their incredibly light weight, a newly designed 100mm bowl has increased the torsional rigidity of the tripod to ensure highly stable shooting.
