The Miller 1690 Arrow 40 tripod system consists of the Arrow 40 fluid head, 694 pan arm, 860 camera plate, 1576 Sprinter II 2-stage carbon fiber tripod, 990 mid-level spreader, and the Arrow 872 soft case.
The Arrow 40 fluid head is designed for use with fully configured ENG camcorder packages weighing up to 35.2 lbs (16.0 kg). Indexed variable fluid drag and counterbalance ensure accurate, speedy setups, and a sliding camera plate with 70 mm of travel accommodates irregular camera/lens combinations. Once mounted and leveled on its 100 mm half-ball, the illuminated operational controls are accessible from the rear for easy operator reference and adjustment.
The Sprinter II 1576 2-stage carbon fiber tripod is intended for run-and-gun ENG work where rapid setup and leveling are as important as rigidity and strength. It features Sprint-Loks for dependable, one-touch stage locking without bending over, and carbon fiber composite leg tubes for superior strength and 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 the working surface.
Designed and built for actual daily use, the roomy Arrow 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 1690 represents a thoughtfully engineered support designed to meet and exceed the needs of uncompromising ENG professionals. For your peace of mind, it carries a 3-year parts and labor warranty, and worldwide support.
