Solo to so high

Miller Camera Support has extended its Solo DV tripod range with a new three-stage version with a 75mm bowl - we use the older two-stage version, which is a very nice tripod. The carbon fibre model has been designed with Miller's recent Compass 15 and 20 fluid heads in mind and now goes up to 187cm (plus head), to give a lens height of about 2m. It's minimum height is just 22cm (which is shown in the hands of Greg Neal, Miller's General Manager, above), and it packs small for carrying.

It retains the Solo's foam "leg warmers", which make it a lot more comfortable to carry on your shoulder (although there is also an air-cushioned carrying strap), and has rubber feet with a retractable spike. It can carry up to 20kg and needs no spreader.
