Fiji Tour of Duty for TV3

Chris and DavidAs part of the international contingent of ENG crews at the front line during the recent Fiji rebel coup, TV3 senior cameraman Chris Jones felt the pressure of gathering news in the midst of a potentially explosive situation.

Back in the safety of TV3's carpark in Auckland, Chris was able to get back to the real world of discussing hardware issues with David Epstein, Miller product manager for NZ distributor, A2Z Technologies. Chris has been using a Miller 25 system with carbon fibre ENG 2-Stage tripod for the last two years. TV3 is an excellent supporter of Miller gear, something the factory appreciates, as the TV3 crews are highly professional and busy enough to give their gear the full treatment.

Chris (on the right) recently evaluated Miller's Arrow on his ENG tripod, and was very impressed with the evolution of Miller head technology. He also tried out the new HD carbon fibre tripod, and, although he preferred the lighter weight of ENG systems, he was impressed with the new locking system and Miller's new mid-level spreader design.
