Miller DS10 Tripod System Reviews

Best Sticks Ever

By Scott

It's amazing the difference a set of quality sticks makes to my peace of mind. This is the perfect tripod for me and they are built to last. I'm through wasting my time with $200 tripods.

Solid tripod, smooth pan, worth price

By Micheal

I shoot surfing video, fast action with lots of panning. The tripod head has VERY smooth panning. Even without any drag on, the panning is stiff (in a good way). It may be nice to have a little less stiffness on zero drag for real quick pans but I'd gladly give that up for a maintained smoothness. The construction feels solid, legs go tall which is nice, and the different levels of spreader locks allow the tripod to go very low to the ground. Haven't had the tripod too long (only about a month), but have been using frequently at the beach, which is one of the harshest environments to shoot in. So, we'll see how it lasts overtime but so far so good. Worth the price, which is actually the cheap end for Miller. Solid product, hard to go wrong.

the best tripod

i manage the equipment for a large production company that is often sending gear all around the world - these are hands down the most lightweight, durable and quality tripods - you may take some time getting used to the twist-locking legs as opposed to a quick release, but it's worth the adjustment because they just don't break used to buy sachtler and manfrotto - no longer

Miller DS-10 Shines

The DS-10 is absolutely smooth. The panning is incredible for the light weight a DSLR provides. I have a rig that varies between about 8 and 12 lbs and the DS-10 balances it quickly perfectly. The fact that is raises up above my head is really nice too. I mount my SmallHD AC7 to the leg and can easily control the head and tall heights. And it goes down to like 8 inches making it just really flexible. It is a bit heavy though. The carbon fibre version was only a little less in weight and considerably more though. Overall just a really solid tripod/Fluid head and much nicer than my Manfrotto for buttery pans.

Great tripod, but buy a #036 screw also!

Has the flexibility of a Gitzo for less. I love Miller quality, but only 3 stars until they include the plate screws needed with the tripod. I use a DSLR, and the tripod was useless with the included screw. Had to overnight a $ screw for $. It had a pin on it for DV cameras, but the pin was not spring-loaded, so you would have to file it down to use it. It surprised me that an expensive professional tripod would not come with a variety of different plate screws.

VERSITILE - BUT WITH PROBLEMS !

By Alligator

Used in many different situations, outdoors and indoors. The fact that the legs spread wide (no spreader) enables positioning the camera less than 1.5 feet from the ground. The design is VERY good in tight or unusual situations and generally for outdoor wildlife/plant videography. HOWEVER: The camera plate lever-screw (side lock screw) is quite fragile and breaks easily, so buy a spare in advance. This little screw is also quite expensive and must be obtained from the manufacture!

I may not be bulletproof but my tripod sure is.

I could ride this tripod into Valhalla with nominal damage, and still get a great shot. Love my Mille' System. PS: At 5'3 I'm going to be ripped from carrying this thing.

Will it be hard to balance this perfectly since it only has two CB settings? Will I be fighting the CB when I tilt?
Asked by: Pino
If you use a camera within its 11 pound capacity it should not be difficult at all.
