New Tripod Coming From Miller
Now the users of lighter DSLR video cameras will have to opportunity to have a proper fluid head and a tripod structure under it that will not break their backs. ( Or pocketbooks.)
Miller are set to release an AIR tripod system for DSLRs that will suit cameras up to 5Kg. Their preliminary literature mentions a 10-year lifespan and the ability to cope with rugged outdoor conditions. The image is a man shooting a DSLR on a frozen lake with a twin-engine airplane on skis behind him. He has a grim expression on his face and as the aircraft exhibits Norwegian registration, he might well have lost his way. It does not look like Meekatharra.
Apparently the tripod is due in late August. We'll report if one flies over.
