Arrow 30 and SOLO VJ big ENG and DV hits at NAB

Miller ENG and DV feature at NAB

Miller launched the SOLO DV  big brother tripod  - the 100mm SOLO VJ, to a rousing chorus of approval during this year's new NAB.

Designed for 10 – 40lb camcorders, SOLO VJ boasts an amazing 1.9m (74”) maximum height, and, due to its spreaderless design, goes down to a ground-hugging 22cm (8.7”). Existing telescoping tripod users will notice that Miller SOLO tubes do not rotate when tightened, making SOLO VJ both quicker and easier to deploy.  solovjlow

SOLO VJ weighs only 3.1kg (6.8lb) yet offers the typically high torsional rigidity of standard dual tube 2-Stage tripods. Neoprene upper tube covering provides excellent grip and weather protection, while spike/rubber feet, Air Cell carry strap and impact resistant soft case are included with each tripod.

Arrow 30 hits DV/ENG

In the highly successful Arrow tradition, Miller is also launching the Arrow 30, a fully featured 100mm ball levelling fluid head for 10-30lb DV/ENG camcorders. Based on the higher capacity Arrow ENG head, Arrow 30 supports the new breed of lighter ENG camcorders from PD-170 through DSR-390 to Sony’s new XDCAM PDW-530.

Featuring 7+7 selectable pan/tilt drag (plus ‘0’) Arrow 30 offers smooth feather-light or ultra-heavy resistance drag to suit all shooting conditions. Selectable 4-position tilt counterbalance and 70mm sliding platform allow for the widest range of camera, lens and battery options, while the quick release camera plate ensures high speed tripod-to-shoulder re-positioning.
