The Miller 1778 Arrow 25 tripod system consists of the Arrow 25 fluid head, 679 pan arm, 860 camera plate, 1576 2-stage carbon fiber tripod, 990 mid-level spreader, and 872 soft case.
The Arrow 25 fluid head is designed for use with fully configured ENG camcorder packages weighing up to 30.8 lb (14.0 kg). Indexed variable fluid drag and counterbalance ensure accurate, speedy setups, and a sliding camera plate with 70mm of travel accommodates irregular camera/lens combinations. Once mounted and levelled on its 100mm half-ball, the illuminated operational controls are accessible from the rear for easy operator reference and adjustment.
Continuing the theme of speed without compromise, the Sprinter II two-stage carbon fiber tripod features Sprint-Loks for dependable, one-touch locking of both stages without bending over.
Carbon fiber composite leg sections offer the same strength as the aluminum alloy version of the Sprinter II, yet weigh less and add the welcome trait of vibration absorption. For easy transport at the end of the shoot, built-in leg clips hold the legs together, and the integrated handle is positioned for perfect balance with the head still mounted. Used in conjunction with the included 990 mid-level spreader, complete stability is assured regardless of terrain.
Designed and built for actual daily use, the roomy 872 soft case answers operator frustrations with real solutions. The head-end cradle is padded and reinforced for protection and puncture resistance. The carrying strap is asymmetrically positioned for optimal balance, and a convenient ID pocket simplifies travel.
As a system, the 1778 represents a highly engineered support designed to meet and exceed the needs of uncompromising motion capture professionals. For your complete peace of mind, it carries a 3-year parts and labor warranty, and worldwide support.
