Miller AIR Overview

The Miller AIR Fluid Head is a lightweight fluid head for the videographer on the go. Designed for cameras between 4.4 and 11 pounds, this die-cast aluminum alloy and rigid composite polymers head is dust and moisture sealed for smooth operation in harsh environments. The sliding camera plate allows 2.36" of balance adjustment, has screw slots, and it comes with a 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 camera tie-down screw as well as a combination 1/4-20 screw with locating pin.

Two-steps of counterbalance help you tune the AIR Fluid Head to match the needs of the shot. The fixed pan and tilt drag remains consistent throughout the head's operating temperature range of -40 to 149°F, and each axis has its own independent lock. Featuring a 75mm half-ball leveling base you can use this head with 75mm bowl base tripod legs, or remove the ball leveling stud for flat-base mounting.

question

Will Manfrotto plates work with this head?
Asked by: Anonymous
No, sorry they are not compatible. If you must use Manfrotto, you could use the Manfrotto 577 Rapid Connect Adapter with Sliding Mounting Plate (501PL) B&H # MA577 or the Manfrotto 357 Pro Quick Release Adapter with 357PL Plate B&H # MA357. You would attach either of these to the Miller quick release.

What is the height of the head to the flat mount ...

What is the height of the head to the flat mount (without the ball)? I'm looking to place this on a slider and travel jib.
Asked by: Charles
The non-removable ball integrates a flat base. The dimension from the top to bottom is 6.0" / 153mm. https://www.millertripods.com/us/mwdownloads/download/link/id/6/
