    Miller Solo DV reviews

    SOLO DV Carbon Fiber 2-Stage Tripod Legs (75mm Bowl) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from not what I expected it to be If you are in the field, outdoors, run and gun, etc., then I suppose this is a good product. I bought it for live indoor event use, mostly due to it's light weight, and really nice tall 63 max height, great reviews here, and generally excellent reputation of Miller. Unfortunately, it suffers from a bit of torsional flex. I'd say it's a bit whippy and tippy. So for what we do, it's not usable as a solid support where you're fully zoomed in on a podium in the back of an auditorium. First time using it, I had a shooter who owns the similar model Gitzo. His comment after the shoot was, these legs are pretty bad compared to my Gitzo. I've never personally used a Gitzo, but take that comment for what it's worth...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Versatile and Lightweight I've been using these sticks for a few years now and they don't disappoint. One of the best purchases I've ever made. They are very lightweight and versatile. You can go extremely low, or fairly high, they also have built in retractable spiked feet, when you need extra stability. They can also be taken apart, for easy cleaning, if you get sand or a lot of dirt in the threading. They definitely aren't meant for a super heavy load, and can be somewhat time consuming to change the height, given the twist locks, but overall an excellent, don't look back kind of purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Miller is a great name in the business with an excellent reputation that's well earned. I've owned a dozen tripods and used hundreds over the years and this one is my hands-down favorite. There are a lot of lightweight tripods on the marked for DSLR video but none compare to this one. It's light weight. The legs are smooth and slide with no effort. The twist locks lock into place with the slightest touch making it secure without any effort. It's expensive for a two-stage tripod but if the limited height isn't an issue for you, buy this one. It will not let you down.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from stable and light tripod Tough and lighweight, particularly compared to other sticks in this price range. Only complaint: It takes a little while to get quick with the hardware that locks the angle of the legs if you're not accustomed to Miller's system. Gitzo's is more intuitive to me, but that may be more a function of my ingrained habits than an intrinsic disadvantage. To that point, each time I use them it get's a little smoother. Either way, I like it better than using a spreader.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Outstanding field tripod Very light weight. Love the spreaderless design. Long legs and versatile leg lock system mean it can go both very high and very, very low with ease. Feet with both rubber tips and spikes adapt easily to a variety of surfaces. Fast and easy to set up; padded legs and strap make it easier and more comfortable to carry than any other tripod I've owned. It is not perfectly rigid with the legs extended all the way; I will probably try to avoid extending the second leg stage unless absolutely necessary for added height. The rotary collet locks on the legs seem rather retro compared to the lever locks on other tripods I own, but they are oversized, have excellent grips, and seem sturdy enough. All in all, this is optimized as a highly portable tripod for field use (which is what I wanted), and it's excellent for use on uneven surfaces and if you frequently need low angles. But there are probably more rigid tripods for the money if you need something for use indoors, or have plenty of time to move and set them up.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid, light, rugged Great legs, only issue is that adjusting height is a three step dance where some other tripods just slide and lock off more easily.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like it a lot! These legs are quite sturdy and are a perfect field mount for my Miller head and Sony PXW - Z150. I am looking forward to taking it out to our local Northwest River Park and photographing some wildlife. The Miller tripod seems a bit heavier than my Benro C373T but it seems less shaky and more robustly built. I don't intend to go trekking through the wilderness with it so a couple of lbs extra is no big deal for me. I am really looking forward to getting a Nikon 850 and seeing what the combo can do for landscape photography.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb for travel I use Miller tripods for supporting my Canon HD camcorder. The solo sticks are light, fit in a duffle suitcase, and were nearly as easy to set up as my full-size set of sticks, which require a heavy special case for airline check-in. Performance was excellent. Highly recommended.
