About Miller
Eric Miller’s 1946 patent for the first fluid pan/tilt head in the world revolutionised filmmaking by providing camera operators the freedom to shoot more creatively and economically. Since then Miller Camera Support products have been used by camera operators and broadcasters throughout the world, establishing a proven reputation for innovation and reliability.

New Design, Premium 75mm Based Fluid Heads
The Compass range of fluid heads are our latest innovation, bringing to market a premium camera support option with professional performance at very competitive pricing. The stylish and operator friendly design incorporates features like a wide payload range, selectable pan and tilt drag settings and illuminated bubble level in a low profile and lightweight fluid head.

Fluid Drag that out performs all the Competition.
The Compass range retains the same drag components used in the renowned Arrow range of 100mm fluid heads. The result is the widest range of drag in 75mm fluid heads available, providing ultra smooth take offs, followed by super stable pan/tilt moves and perfect stops. There is nothing as smooth as a Miller, the inventor of fluid pan/tilt heads.

Counterbalance to Suit the New Generation of Cameras
The newly designed four position counterbalance system in the Compass 15 and 20 fluid heads provides for a wide payload range of cameras and camera configurations. Whereas other 75mm based heads utilise counterbalance systems that will reduce tilt range and cause “springback” in higher settings, the Compass counterbalance settings are fully functional in all tilt positions.

Workmanship, Point of Excellence
High manufacturing standards and advanced quality control ensure Compass components are produced with super fine tolerances that result in precision movements. The use of corrosion resistant materials, high strength impact absorbing polymers and dust proof/ moisture resistant housings for the Compass range ensure reliability even in the world’s toughest environmental conditions.

COMPASS SYSTEM TRIPODS DS Toggle Series Solo DV
Miller’s innovative range of Solo tripods have been proven to be the most versatile, compact and lightweight tripods available. With the ability to set height ranges between 234mm (9.2”) and 1614mm (63.5”) and available in alloy or carbon fibre. The Solo range are the ultimate in versatility and their lightweight (from 2.5kg/5.5lbs) compact size make them the ideal travel companion. A traditional alternative and proven performer, constructed to exacting tolerances with precision alloy tube, the Miller DS Toggle series complements the Compass range superbly. Available with above ground or ground spreaders and a light weight dolly these tripods provide the ultimate in stability.
