The Miller Compass25 2-Stage Alloy System (1851) includes the Compass 25 Fluid Head (1038), the 2-stage Alloy Tripod (402), the Ground Spreader (411), the Telescopic Pan Handle (694), the Shoulder Strap (554), and the DS Softcase (876).
The Compass 25 Fluid Head (1038) is compatible with HDV, DVCAM, XDCAM, and P2HD cameras and has a selectable counterbalance system with support for payloads from 4 to 14 kg (8.8 - 30.8 lbs). With 5 selectable fluid pan and tilt drag positions, the fluid head offers a 360° pan with a tilt range of +90° to -75°.
In addition to the 70mm camera-sliding platform and a quick release Euro standard plate, the Compass 25 Fluid Head has a caliper disc braking system for effective pan/tilt locks. The fluid head also features an illuminated bubble level, 100mm ball leveling, and a replaceable tilt end rosette.
The 2-stage Alloy Tripod (402) can be extended in height, and the black anodized alloy tubing makes the tripod ideal for field use. Featuring a toggle lock and Industry standard 100mm bowl leveling, the tripod weights 3 kg (6.6 lbs) and supports loads up to 25 kg (55.1 lbs).
The Ground Spreader (411) is fixed to the feet of the tripod and has telescoping arms for quick setup as well as closing. Used for keeping the tripod legs at equal / pre-determined distance from each other, the ground spreader can be used with the tripod on flat or near flat surfaces. Thanks to the telescoping arms, the ground spreader need not be detached for extending the tripod legs.
The Telescopic Pan Handle (694) comes with a black pan handle carrier and can extend up to 200mm (390-590mm). It also features black anodized aluminum tubing with a rubber grip.
The Shoulder Strap (554) is made from weatherproof cordura and nylon and comes with anti-corrosive buckles. The air-bubble shoulder pad in the strap distributes the weight evenly and comfortably over the shoulder and the safety spring latches attach to the tripod securely.
The DS Softcase (876) is designed to fit 2-stage tripod systems and offers padded carry straps with a patented head-end cradle to protect the fluid head during transport. Made from weatherproof cordura with heavy-duty zippers on the bag and pockets, the Softcase has a transport length of 930mm and offers complete protection to your tripod system.
