The Miller Compass 25 Solo ENG 3-stage Carbon Fiber System (1857) includes the Compass 25 Fluid Head (1038), the 3-stage Carbon Fiber Tripod (1505), the Telescopic Pan Handle (694), the Solo DV Carry Strap (1520), and the Arrow Softcase (872).

The Compass 25 Fluid Head (1038) is compatible with HDV, DVCAM, XDCAM, and P2HD cameras and has a selectable counterbalance system with support for payloads from 8.8 - 30.9 lb (4 to 14 kg). With 5 selectable fluid pan and tilt drag positions, the fluid head offers a 360° pan with a tilt range of +90° to -75°.

In addition to the 70mm camera-sliding platform and a quick release Euro standard plate, the Compass 25 Fluid Head has a caliper disc braking system for effective pan/tilt locks. The fluid head also features an illuminated bubble level, 3.94" ball leveling, and a replaceable tilt end rosette.

The 3-stage Carbon Fiber Tripod (1505) offers a height range of 8-73" (20-185 cm) with strong torsional rigidity and durability ideal for video journalists on the move. This ultra-light (6.8 lb / 3.10kg) and versatile ring-locking tripod utilizes leg-angle locking, thus eliminating the need for a spreader.

The Telescopic Pan Handle (694) comes with a black pan handle carrier and can extend up to 7.9" (200mm). It also features black anodized aluminum tubing with a rubber grip.

The Solo DV Carry Strap (1520) is made from weatherproof Cordura and nylon and comes with anti-corrosive buckles. The air-bubble shoulder pad in the strap distributes the weight evenly and comfortably over the shoulder and the safety spring latches securely attach to 75mm and 100mm tripods.

The Arrow Softcase (872) is designed to fit 2-stage tripod systems and comes with padded carry straps with a patented head-end cradle to provide protection to the fluid head during transport. Made from weatherproof Cordura with heavy-duty zippers on the bag and pockets, the Arrow Softcase has a transport length of 36.6" (930mm) and offers complete protection to your tripod system.

    Comments about Miller Compass 25 Solo ENG 3-stage Carbon Fiber System (1857):

    This is the best tripod I have owned to date. It is leaps and bounds better than any Manfrotto out there. I was using the 526MVBKIT with the HPX300 and it was tough to control when I was all the way in on shots. This tripod head combination is a perfect match for the HPX300/370 and it is nice and smooth (not bouncy like the Manfrotto) when you are zoomed all the way in.
