Miller Sharpshooters


#   Sharpshooter on the Ice Shooting Aurora Australis  |  Australia
This year is the centenary of explorer Douglas Mawson’s 1911 expedition to Antarctica, during which he settled camp at what is often referred to as the windiest place on Earth, Commonwealth Bay.





#   Experience with the DS 10 and Compass 12 Heads with a Miller Solo Carbon Fibre Tripod  |  Australia
The first expedition was to the very remote Gunsa valley near Mt Kangchenjunga, the world’s third highest mountain. This expedition involved a crew of four plus 21 sherpas and porters covering 350 km on foot during a six week shoot.





#   Miller DS 10 Solo Withheld the Test of the Russian Arctic  |  Australia
Miller Sharpshooter Dr. Dean Miller is a veteran of sub zero cinematographer having just spent the past 12 months on sub-Antarctic Macquarie Island, and the previous summer, exploring and filming the Antarctic south of Australia and New Zealand.





#   DS10 Solo provides solid support to Think Films  |  Australia
My first tripod wasn't a Miller but I'm glad to say that my second one was and I've never looked back since. I love the Miller DS-10. It's perfect for the work I do which is often in remote and harsh environments so it's light weight enough to carry around for long stretches of time but sturdy enough to do the job.
