Solid and Light Sticks

I own a small Video Production Company and needed a compliment for my Manfrotto 504HD head. I use a range of camera's from DSLR's up too Epic's and Scarlet's. With that in mind i needed flexibility and strength. After doing some research and price comparisons these were the best choice. These are the best bang for your buck in this price range, and the really are not a whole lot heavier than the much more expensive miller or manfrotto Carbon Fiber versions. They are solid and well built. Easy to adjust and you can get nice and low as well. Really Great choice

These sticks are awesome. If you're trying to pack light these sticks are all you need. They get as low as a high hat and have three stages! The locking works nicely and the leg spikes make it very sturdy. I highly recommend these sticks.

Wow that's the real thing!

For the money these Gitzo style sticks are the BEST! lightweight, easy to use, and built to last. I've always loved Miller products.

This is the only tripod I have really ever loved. It's very solid, easy to position, and can get very low shots as well as high. Simplicity of design makes this tripod perfect for every situation. I waited for awhile until I saw this one and knew I didn't need anything else.

Amazing Video Tripod!

This tripod exceeded my expectations. I spent many hours researching tripods and decided on this. I was in need of a video tripod to shoot wildlife video. I figured out that one with solo legs like this, as well as no spreader, would be best. This tripod is plenty tall at its maximum height for 99.99% of use. At its maximum height, with a fluid head and camera attached, the camera is too tall for me to use my viewfinder and I am just over 6 feet tall. If you change the angle of the legs to the middle option and have the legs fully extended, it is basically the perfect height to stand up to film. And at that height the spread of the legs is pretty wide, giving you a very stable base. If you adjust the leg angle to the third position, and shorten the legs completely, it is very stable and low enough to the ground to get great shots. I went with the aluminum alloy one rather than the carbon fiber because I dont believe that paying almost $200 more to save a pound in weight was worth it. You will also hear that carbon fiber is stiffer than aluminum and thus better, but in my opinion the difference is negligible in real-life usage. And I actually believe that extra pound of weight over the carbon fiber version is probably beneficial. If a tripod gets too light it loses stability. An extra pound added to 5 pounds is a 20% increase in weight! People will also try to sell you on carbon fiber because it doesnt get as hot or cold to the touch as the aluminum version does. But you can wear gloves. And it has the padding on the whole upper part of the leg which insulates you from that. So the bottom line is that this tripod is solid, stable, feels really well built, has a good instruction manual, and is well worth the cost. I highly recommend this and I am so very glad that I purchased this.

Well done Miller

I can't say enough good about these sticks. Absolutely in love with them. The padding on the legs should be a standard feature on all tripod legs for the rest of time. Strong, lightweight, and comfortable. If you need sticks that support 75mm bowl, you cannot go wrong with these legs. Well done Miller...Well done!
