1000 PRO
CAMERA SUPPORT
Camera Stabilization System (up to 6 lbs)
Imagine a world in balance. Imagine smoothness, freedom and grace. With the 1000
PRO your camcorder seems to float, always balanced, isolated from your hand’s undesirable motions. Now you are free to move with your camera – panning, tilting, booming
or running – without any camera instability or shake. The 1000 PRO is a lightweight,
hand-held camcorder stabilizing system that allows you to shoot incredibly smooth and graceful
shots, even while running up and down stairs or traveling over rugged terrain. And when it comes to
normal shooting, like walking or moving the camera slowly around someone, the results are equally
magical. Shot after shot, move after move, the 1000 PRO delivers beautifully smooth and professional
results. No more need for a tripod or a Dolly — now all you need is your imagination!
■ Only 16˝ tall, supports any camcorder weighing up to
6 pounds.
■ Easy to set up and balance, the 1000 Pro allows unrestricted
booming and unrestricted 360° panning.
366
■ The camera platform moves back and forth and side to side, allow-
ing quick adjustment of the camera’s horizontal balance. Camera’s
vertical balance is adjusted by varying the amount of counterweight disks on the base platform.
■ Offset handle grip is attached to a free-float-
ing precision Gimbal, allowing hand movement up and down and side to side,
thereby isolating unwanted hand
interference from the camera. The
up and down movement alleviates
the bouncing pogo-type action associated with other systems whose handles
cannot move up and down.
409+ Industries offers a wide variety of camera stabilization systems for use with motion picture, video cameras and camcorders. These hand-held and body-mounted camera Stabilizers create super smooth shots, allowing you to walk, run, go up
and down stairs, shoot from moving vehicles, and travel over uneven terrain without any camera instability or shake. Ideal
camera accessories, they easily replace or can be used in conjunction with Dollies and Tracks, Booms, Camera Cranes, Tripods
or Monopods. Both professionals and amateurs alike can enjoy the fluidity and grace that stabilizers provide.
3000 PRO
Camera Stabilization System (up to 6 lbs)
Employing a unique exoskeletal forearm support brace, the 3000 PRO is
the first camera stabilization system designed to distribute the weight of the
system over the entire forearm of the operator. The forearm brace not only provides
you with cushioned comfort while shooting, but also eliminates “torque” which would otherwise cause stress on your wrist. With the forearm support brace, shooting smooth and professional looking images is a natural — as the 3000 PRO becomes an extension of your body.
■ Balance and stabilize any cam-
corder or camera weighing from
4 to 10 pounds.
■ The counterweights on the Base Platform can be quickly attached
or adjusted while the system is resting in an upright position on
its base.
■ The 3000 offers 360° panning and more than 270 ° tilting.

3000 PRO
Additional 3000 PRO Features
■ You can shoot upside-down, sideways, low
■ The system's free floating, precision gim-
bal includes integrally shielded bearings,
two of which are housed in the unique
Offset Handlegrip. These precision bearings create the super-smooth and pivotable
connection between your arm and the
unit's Central Support Post.
■ Made of aluminum with foam padding,
nylon cloth and velcro strapping, the
Forearm Support Brace has a connector
that allows it to quickly slip in and out of
the offset handle for quick connection or
disconnection from the System.
■ The connector can be attached to the han-
dle at varying angles to suit your preference of shooting.
■ The Camera Mounting Platform (x-y
motion table) measures 5.25˝ by 8˝ and
has both 1/4˝ and 3/8˝ mounting holes.
■ The 3000 is 20” tall without the supplied
5˝ extension post attached. Using the post
allows less counterweights to be used when
setting the vertical balance, thereby making the whole system lighter.
■ The Forearm Brace can be removed from
your arm very quickly in case of an emergency. (The system can be used without
the Brace, but only with lighter cameras.)
■ For remote viewing, an optional LCD
monitor can be attached to a variety of
mounting holes on the base platform.

near the ground, overhead and angled, as
in a Dutch shot.
BODY POD
The Body Pod is a lightweight rigid support system which lets you shoot in
cushioned comfort for indefinite periods of time with either the 1000 or 3000
Pro. By taking the weight of the Stabilizer off your hands and arms and placing it onto your waist and shoulders, the Body Pod virtually eliminates stress
and fatigue, allowing you the freedom to shoot events that require uninterrupted shooting.
■ The Body Pod is designed to allow you to quickly slide the handle of either the 1000 PRO
or 3000 PRO on and off its rigid support, permitting quick back and forth switching
between hand-held stabilization shooting and body mounted shooting.
■ Use the system while on the move, such as when walking up and down stairs around your
subject matter. You can also become a sort of mobile tripod, maintaining your position
while shooting, yet being able to quickly and easily change shooting location, based upon
the shooting requirements.
■ The Body Pod is especially suited for commercial, industrial and corporate videography, such as weddings, real estate videos, sporting events,
etc. The system allows you to leave your tripod behind, rendering you free to move about and shoot from places you would normally be
unable to shoot quickly from.
Since the support of the Body Pod is rigid and, for the most part, inflexible, it will not absorb and smooth out camera movements as
well as a Stabilizer which is being held in just your hands. However, shooting with your Stabilizer attached to the rigid support of the
Body Pod still yields results that are far better than unstabilized, hand-held shooting or shoulder-supported shooting. Once you get
the feel of using the Body Pod, you won’t shoot anything else without it.

Professional Camera (up to 10 lbs) Stabilization System
CAMERA SUPPORT
With the the V-8, offers the most affordable and versatile line of professional camera stabilizers in the world. With its unique and exclusive
Orbital Hinge technology and compact Dyna-Elastic Arm, the V-8 revolutionizes camera stabilization by bringing and advancing the technology of body motioned camera stabilization to cameras weighing up
to 10 pounds. Simply combine a Canon XL-1
or Sony DSR-200A with a V-8, and you have one of the best video
acquisition tools available.
368
Walk, run, go up and down stairs, shoot from moving vehicles and
travel over uneven terrain without camera instability or shake.
The V-8 allows you to shoot the type of super smooth tracking shots that
take people’s breath away. Produce the type of ultra-smooth handling
shots that until now were only achieved with very heavy inertially stable cameras, and instantly add high production value to every scene.
Whether shooting commercials, industrials, weddings, documentaries,
news, music videos or feature length motion pictures, the V-8 brings the
fluidity and grace of professional, body mounted, camera stabilizers to
your productions.
FEATURES
Support Vest
Orbit Hinge
The support vest is lightweight and comfortable and can be
easily adjusted to fit a wide range of operators. High
endurance closed cell, FVA foam padding and integral T6
aluminum alloy creates a vest which can hold and evenly
distribute the weight of the V-8 system across your shoulders, back and hips. For safety, quick-release high impact
buckles allow the vest to be removed quickly. When it
comes to the art of stabilizing cameras that are very lightweight, it quickly becomes apparent that the main virtue of
a body-mounted system is that it allows you to shoot for
long periods of time with very little fatigue.
Innovative Orbit Hinge was designed to increase the isolation between your
hip and the Dyna Elastic Arm. The Orbit Hinge accomplishes this isolation
with the ability to rotate 360°. This rotation allows the back end of the Rigid
Arm to continuously move in an unobstructed orbital path around the Vest
Mounting Plate.
Dyna-Elastic Support Arm
The adjustable Exoskeletal Dyna-Elastic Support Arm is
designed to counteract the weight of the combined camera
and Camera Mounting Assembly (the Sled) by employing a
high carbon alloy spring. The Support Arm can be boomed
up and down, as well as pivoted in and out and side to side.
It is the combined booming and pivoting action of the
Support Arm which isolates the motions of the operator
from the camera in a way that creates ultra-smooth shots.
The spring force is field adjustable to allow for varying
camera weights.
We Ship Worldwide
Camera Mounting Assembly
The rugged and adjustable Camera Mounting Assembly (the Sled) is designed
with a lower telescoping central support post (the Extension Post) that allows
adjustment of the system’s vertical balance. The central support post can be
adjusted from 18˝ to 23˝. The camera mounting platform (or the x-y motion
table) moves back and forth and side to side to allow adjustment of the system's
horizontal balance. The camera plate has both 1/4˝ and 3/8˝mounting slots
(holes) to accommodate a variety of camera bases. For remote viewing, an LCD
monitor can be easily attached to a front 1/4˝ mounting hole on the base platform. Fine weight disks (included) can be used on the base platform as counterbalance to allow adjustment of the system’s vertical balance. A variety of mounting holes are supplied on the base platform, letting you customize it to fit your
needs. A free-floating precision (Three-Axis Gimbal), incorporating integrally
shielded bearings, creates the super smooth and pivotal connections between the
front end of the Dyna-Elastic Arm and the Camera Mounting Assembly. The
Three-Axis Gimbal provides the operator with finger-tip control over fluid tilting, panning and rolling.
GLIDECAM
DUAL-G
Dual-Handle Counterbalanced Stabilization System
CAMERA SUPPORT
The Dual-G is a dual-gimbaled, dual-handled counterbalanced
camera stabilization system designed to distribute the weight of the
system between two operators. The Dual-G allows walking, running, going up and down stairs and travel over rugged terrain
without any camera instability or shake. It easily replaces conventional dollies and tracks and frees the camera in a way previously
only accomplished with systems costing ten times as much. Using a
unique, dual-gimbaled support assembly, the Dual-G stabilizes
cameras and camcorders weighing from 8 to 22 pounds. The assembly has two handles, dividing the weight of the system between two
operators — each person ends up carrying only half the weight. It is
the role of the second operator which allows cameras in this weight
range to be stabilized without the use of a spring loaded, exoskeletal support arm. With the Dual-G, you will free your mind as well
as the camera.
369
FEATURES
Dual Gimbaled Support Assembly
The Base Platform
Both of the Dual-G's free-floating precision gimbals incorporate integrally shielded bearings. These precision bearings create the supersmooth and pivotable connections between the operator's arm and
the unit's Central Support Post. The distance between the two foampadded handles can be adjusted to accommodate a variety of shooting styles and situations – the narrowest setting to be between thirteen inches and the widest over five feet.
The base platform can be configured to use counterbalance weight
disks (included) in the event of choosing not to use a monitor
and/or battery on the base as counterbalance. The base comes with
an adjustable monitor bracket, as well as threaded mounting holes
for an Anton Bauer Gold battery plate. Adjustable "Kick-Stands"
are located on both sides of the base to give the system more stability when resting on the ground.
Specifications:
Central Support Post
The upper portion of the central support post includes guide scale
markings. This allows for accurate and repeatable gimbal positioning.
By adjusting the height of the gimbal assembly on the central support post, you can control the system's center of gravity or vertical
balance. The Dual-G also comes with a 6˝ extension post. The extension post allows less counterweight(s) to be used when setting the
vertical balance, thereby making the whole system lighter.
The Camera Mounting Platform
The camera mounting platform, (or the x-y motion table), moves
back and forth and side to side, allowing quick control of the system's horizontal balance. The camera mounting plate measures
5.25 x 8˝ and has both 1/4˝ and 3/8˝ mounting slots to accommodate a variety of cameras.
■ Supports and stabilizes any camcorder from 8 to 22 pounds.
■ The system is made of precision aluminum and is 26˝ tall, or 32˝
tall when the 6˝ extension post is attached.
■ The system weighs 8 pounds without counterweights. For remote
viewing, an LCD monitor can be easily attached to a variety of
mounting holes on the base platform, or a CRT TV monitor can
be attached to the monitor bracket.
■ The system allows 360° panning and 360° tilting.
■ The system can also be used with three operators. One person
controls the camera at the center, while the other two each hold
the handles. This technique is especially useful for trick shots, like
flying the camera over a car, etc.

EVA foam padding, a reversible and vertically adjustable arm mounting plate, and an industry-standard Titanium arm connector (optional “V-Series” arm connector is also available)
for connection to the high end dual-articulating Gold Arm. A highly-machined anodized
aluminum arm, the Gold Arm incorporates six titanium springs allowing it to support film
and video cameras weighing up to 38 lbs.
The Dyna-Elastic Arm
The Exoskeletal, Dyna-Elastic Support Arm is designed to counteract the
weight of the combined camera and Camera Mounting Assembly by
employing high carbon alloy springs. The arm may be boomed up and
down, as well as pivoted in and out and side to side. It is the combined booming and pivoting action of the arm which creates the shock absorption necessary for ultra-smooth camera movement and mobility. The spring force is fieldadjustable to allow for varying camera weights. For safety, a dual-spring design is
employed to reduce spring failure damage.

STEADICAM SK2
374
CAMERA SUPPORT
Professional Steadicam for Cameras 9-19 Lbs
Incorporating the same patented design principles as its larger cousins, the
Steadicam SK2 is designed for use by professional videographers with cameras
weighing from 9-19 lbs. Far more compact and less complex than its Oscar
and Emmy winning predecessors, the complete SK2 system – sled, stabilizer
arm and vest – weighs a mere 21 pounds and fits neatly into the trunk of a
car. A patented design makes balancing easier than ever, and a single battery
operates both camera and Steadicam. In fact, the SK2 is the only Steadicam
simple enough to be operated without workshop training. A comprehensive
instructional video will have you up and running in a matter of hours. But
make no mistake. The lightweight SK2 performs like a true heavyweight.
The SK2 lets you shoot on the move effortlessly, without cranes, booms or dollies. The sled-mounted monitor offers a crystal-dear picture, relieving your eyes
from being glued to your camera’s eyepiece. And with the vest spreading the
SK2's weight comfortably over your torso, you can climb stairs, shoot on the
run, or even from a moving vehicle. With one smooth tracking shot, you can
capture what used to require five or six setups. An optional low-mode bracket
can further enhance your creativity, while eliminating other costly setups. All
the shots you might once have considered too expensive, too elaborate or just
too impossible are yours with the SK2.
Steadicam Glossary
Articulated Arm - This is the spring arm that supports the weight of
the camera on all Steadicams (except the JR). Its official name is the
"Double Hinged Exoskeletal Articulated Spring Support Arm”.
Center of Gravity - The point at which an object's weight is in balance in all directions, and from which an object can be manipulated
with the least additional rotation. The SK2 gains stability by bringing
the center of gravity outside of the camera and placing it within easy
manipulation of the operator.
Don Juan - An operating position where the operator walks forward
but the camera points backward. Excellent for viewing the faces of
actors in motion.
Gimbal - This bearing system allows the Steadicam to rotate freely in
all three dimensions, or more precisely, to use its inertia to resist rotation whenever rotational force travels through the Articulated Arm.
Hard Mount - When the socket for the Articulated Arm is bolted,
glued, nailed, welded or otherwise securely fastened to some sort of
moving platform, ie. the back of a minivan, a Dolly, a wheelchair, a
pickup truck, a motorcycle, etc.
Low Mode - Operating with the camera below the Gimbal, instead
of the more common, above. This is achieved by either:
1) Mounting the camera from above by using a specialty bracket, the
handle or the screw-holes into which the handle attaches, or,
2) Mounting the camera to the bottom of a Low Mode Cage which
is mounted by its top to the Steadicam. This lowers the lens height to
about knee height, which is excellent for those dog-eye, snake eye,
and little kid's-eye views.
Missionary - an operating position where the camera lens points
more or less forward. As opposed to Don Juan.
Moment of Inertia - The resistance of an object to rotation around
its center of mass, due to inertia. The larger an object's Moment of
Inertia, the more force is needed to initiate rotation at a given speed.
Moment of inertia can be increased by increasing the distance
between the center of mass and the masses within an object.
Sled - This is the electronics portion of the Steadicam, on the opposite end of the Post from the camera. The Sled contains the battery
and the monitor. Named "Sled" because earlier Steadicam models
had a toboggan, or luge-like shape. The SK2 uses a more modular
system for greater flexibility, rather than the all-in-one design that
gave the Sled its name.
Vest - This is the part of the Steadicam that distributes the weight of
the system to your body. The Articulated Arm fits into a socket just
above the waist, which can be switched from the right side (for righthanded operation), to the left (for left-handed operation).

Oscar and Emmy Award-Winning
Designed to provide total mobility, portability and versatility
while recording extremely steady and smooth images, Steadicam
permits an infinite variety of both moving and static shots —
walking, running, or at a standstill.
This unique design allows you to place
the shot in any position where it will
remain. This is especially useful for “lockoff ” shots.

The Iso-Elastic arm is a single articulated
design and can be adjusted while supporting
the camera.
The Oscar (and Emmy)-winning Steadicam has revolutionized
film and video production techniques worldwide. No other single piece of equipment, since the invention of the handheld
camera, has ever added so much to the vocabulary of camera
movement. With innumerable features, documentaries, television programs and commercials to its credit, Steadicam has
become as essential a production tool as the tripod or dolly.
STAGE
VEST
Ergonomic and lightweight, the custom vest keeps you cool and comfortable throughout your shoot while
providing excellent support to reduce
fatigue.
GIMBAL
Cinema Products’ patented Gimbal
affords the SK2 operator the same
precision that every professional
Steadicam operator has counted on
for years.
MONITOR
The P43 phosphorous monitor is
sharp and clear whether you are
shooting in low light conditions or
bright sunlight.
BATTERY
The SK2 is compatible with NP-1
style, PAG and Anton Bauer bricks.
The patented system allows the camera to move with you as if it
were an extension of your body, automatically adjusting and correcting for body motions as you guide and control the camera
position with a gentle hand movement. Released from the constraints of dollies, tracks, and heavy camera platforms, you and
the camera are free to go anywhere without restrictions - recording shots previously considered impossible. Capture action scenes
with a new sense of fluidity and realism in sweeping continuous
takes. In the studio or on location, Steadicam's enormous versatility allows cameraman and director greater creative latitude while
effectively reducing production costs.
The ‘Fugitive’ is an excellent example of modern, non- intrusive
Steadicam technique. No scene stands out as a Steadicam shot;
the Steadicam shots blend smoothly with all of the tripod and
dolly shots. Whether running through lobbies, sneaking through
drainage tunnels, or charging through ballrooms, the characters
are usually lead by the camera -- and that leading camera is the
Steadicam. With the Steadicam, the actor can move freely in line
with the camera (so that the camera sees their faces) without stepping on or over tracks. And the characters in that movie were
almost always on the move.

The newest member of the Steadicam family, the DV Steadicam was designed specifically
for digital video camcorders like the Canon GL-1 and Sony DCR-VX1000. Incorporating
the same patented technology that has helped reshape the film and video world for over 20
years, the DV Steadicam turns any digital video camcorder from 2.5 to 6 lbs
into the most versatile production tool you’ve ever owned.

STEADICAM JR
The ‘Personal’ Steadicam
Incorporating the same isolation techniques as the Steadicam SK2, the JR
(pronounced J.R. not “Junior”) works with small digital camcorders to yield
images as smooth and jitter-free as those of the professional Steadicam rigs.
The JR relies on the same techniques for isolation, spreading camera mass
and manipulating the center of gravity as the professional Steadicams. Now
the invention that won Academy and Emmy awards for technical achievement is available for your camcorder.
■ Three-Axis Gimbal reduces rotary jarring.
The gimbal, located at the top of the
handle, is the most sophisticated engineering in the JR, intercepting unwanted
rotation before it reaches the camera.
■ Spreads the weight of the camera, increasing
the resistance of the rig to unwanted Tilt
and Roll and pulling the center of gravity
into your hands (actually, fingertips).
■ Instead of using an articulated arm to
support the weight of the rig, the JR uses
the more sophisticated, but less predictable human arm.
■ With the larger rigs, taking a shot that
does not involve the Steadicam in flight
(like on a tripod) requires removing the
camera from the Steadicam. With the JR,
however, you do not need to remove the
Steadicam to get those shots.
■ Folding up the bottom arm and folding
out a "Whale's Tail" (a small, "Y"-shaped
piece of metal) converts it into a shoulder
mount. If both arms are folded flat, the
JR attaches to a tripod with standard
screws. In all positions, the LCD monitor
is still useable.
■ Includes a specially treated 3.5˝ LCD
monitor that minimize reflections, freeing your eyes from the camcorder
viewfinder.
■ Folds and stores in a layer 2˝ high
beneath your camcorder. Weighs 2 lbs.
■ Includes an excellent training video
describing setup, practice, and operation.

VARIZOOM VZ-LSP
Professional Shoulder Brace
One of the biggest drawbacks of
DV camcorders is their lack of a
proper shoulder mount. With the

now a thing of the past. Designed
by Peter Lisand, the VZ-LSP is
the ultimate shoulder brace providing no less than ten adjustable
fittings for an endless variety of
shooting configurations. Precision
crafted from machined aluminum,
the VZ-LSP is tough, lightweight
and built to last.
Separating this brace from its
competitors is the fully ab support
(included), giving you three points of contact with the brace
(hand, shoulder and body) for maximum camera support and
control. The camera mounting platform can be positioned
exactly as desired, raising the viewfinder right to the shooter’s
eye. Combined with a VariZoom Lens Controller clamped to
the grip handle, you not only have the most powerful acquisition tool, but also the most comfortable one. Ideal for camcorders like the XL-1,

CAMERA SUPPORT
Libec by Matthews Fluid Heads
The professional videographer has no choice but to depend on his equipment, in the studio and on location. Libec by
Matthews Fluid Heads have been designed to perform in all conditions and circumstances, allowing the videographer to
concentrate on the shot, instead of the equipment. Smooth pans and tilts, with no backlash or bumps, are a given with
the use of Libec by Matthews Fluid Heads. Rapid, secure camera counterbalance is achieved through torque control and
plate positioning. Most Libec by Matthews Fluid Heads feature claw-ball bases for easy system leveling and will operate
in temperatures as low as -22°F (-30°C).
H-80 FLUID HEAD
Only Libec could engineer a premium fluid head that allows the smoothest pan and tilt available
anywhere. "Infinite" control of pan and tilt drag is obtained by a continuous Drag Control System
that eliminates click stops at predetermined points. Optimum camera balance with tilt angles of
+90° or -90° is obtained with the continuous Counterbalance Control System. The counterbalancing mechanism is so unique that a patent is pending. The DoveTail Plate is included with the H80
head and will allow the entire unit to snap onto the head without the need to line up the dovetail.
The plate will slide approximately 4˝ (100mm) to obtain the proper camera balance. State of the art
technology permits performance in temperatures down to -22°F (-30°C).
The H80 is equipped with a 100mm claw-ball to simplify camera leveling, one pan handle (PH-7)
and a claw-ball locking knob. Weighs 8.5 lbs., camera load capacity is 13 to 37 lbs.
H-70 FLUID HEAD
The H70’s patented counterbalance mechanism supports various operating configurations,
from stand-alone cameras to cameras with docked recorders, and even studio configurations
with large viewfinders. Perfect balance can be obtained with settings from 0 to 3, depending
on camera weight —from 13 to 33 lbs. (6-15kg) – and tilt angle.
The patented 4-Step Drag Control System permits four individual levels of drag tension to be
set on either Pan or Tilt to accomplish the smoothest camera moves imaginable. Tilt angle is
+90º to -75º.
To further enhance the H70, a sliding balance plate is provided, featuring a patented locking
mechanism and allowing a total of approximately 4˝ (100mm) of travel for camera balance.
The H70 is equipped with a 100mm claw-ball, one pan handle (PH-7) and claw-ball locking
knob. It weighs 9 lbs. (4kg).
H-60 FLUID HEAD
The H60 Fluid Head has 2-step drag control for both Pan and Tilt, and a sliding quick-mount
plate with 4˝ (100mm) travel for camera balance. Tilt angle is +85º to -65º.
Includes 100mm claw-ball, one pan handle (PH-7) and claw-ball locking knob. Weighs 9 lbs.,
camera load capacity is 18-29 lbs.

capacity of 175 lbs.
P-8 Studio Pedestal ....................11,650.00
P-6 Studio Pedestal
P-6 Studio Pedestal Load capacity of 160 lbs. weighs 167 lbs. ................................................7750.00
P-100 Pedestal
The P100 is a small size pedestal that offers great flexibility without taking
up too much space. Featuring an advanced air pressure system, the P100
smoothly handles loads up to 66 lbs., easily accommodating professional cameras used in a studio. Ideal for CATV, small studios, event and wedding
video, as well as all kinds of industrial and institutional applications.
■ Air pump attached to the main body
frame allows air to be pumped into a
column anywhere and anytime – even
while a camera is mounted on the
pedestal. This allows you to check and
adjust the air pressure while using the
pedestal, and to avoid the over-filling of air.
■ Air pressure can be gradually adjusted by
discharging air through a bleed valve. A
relief valve automatically lets air out when
air pressure inside the column exceeds the
uniform value.
■ A track lock mechanism locks the wheels
of the pedestal, so that it only moves in a
desired position.
■ Large double wheel 5˝ casters allow the
P100 to move smoothly and quickly.
Wheels and caster axles are easily fixed by
the double stopper system.
■ Cable guards prevent the casters from rolling
over and becoming tangled in camera cables
when the tripod is moved around in a studio.
■ Large steering wheel affords greater ease in
handling when shifting columns up and
down, or when moving the pedestal.
■ The column and Dolly can be quickly
disassembled for convenient transport.
Column weighs 18 lbs., the Dolly 16 lbs.
■ Maximum height is 61˝, minimum is 31˝.
Attach the optional LA-100 Low Angle
Adapter to shoot at low angles. (Height
from the ground to mount is only 10˝.)

CAMERA SUPPORT
The greatest reassurance for ENG and EFP professionals is knowing that their camera support equipment is designed by
a company aware of the specific needs of field and location production. Tripods must be light, stable on all terrains,
weather resistant, compact, and easy to set up. Pan and Tilt heads must operate smoothly and consistently, and they must
seamlessly handle different payloads. They should also be light, compact, anti-corrosive and simple to operate. The silky,
smooth action of each Miller Fluid Head is the product of the finest quality cast and machined parts, functioning together in a fluid environment. They are engineering masterpieces, built to operate under the most extreme conditions. They
are engineered to exceptionally fine tolerances, and their mechanisms are protected effectively against ambient moisture
and dust. So, too, with Miller’s comprehensive tripod range. As new materials and new design techniques are implemented, the tripods become lighter, yet achieve greater torsional rigidity and continue to offer innovative features that set new
standards for camera support systems.

The smoothest Pan and Tilt action in the field, from the company who invented Fluid Drag
Quick Release
Camera Platforms
Multi-Step Pan & Tilt
Fluid Drag System
Preset and Adjustable
Counterbalancing
The benchmark by which others are judged,
Miller’s multi-step Fluid Drag system ensures
smooth, consistent fluid drag control across all
temperature ranges and through a wide range
of light and heavy settings – something continuous drag systems cannot duplicate. By being
independent of payload weight, the multi-step
system ensures smooth “starts” and dead “stops”
for precise framing without any backlash. The
system is fully sealed within sub-assemblies for
a leakproof, low maintenance life.
Miller has designed specialized counterbalancing systems to neutralize the effect of payloads
and their centers of gravity. The preset counterbalance system built into the DS-5, 10 and 20,
combined with a sliding camera platform (DS10 and 20), optimize tilt control in the intended capacity range of these heads. The adjustable
counterbalance of the DS-25 and Arrow 50
accommodate a broad range of cameras, lenses
and other accessories for ENG & EFP applications.
Every Miller fluid head is fitted with a
precision, quick release camera platform
that incorporates a sliding balance plate
for fine tune payload balancing.
The self-engaging action of Miller camera
plates ensures rapid camera attachment in
the field, while the built-in safety lock
guarantees camera safety during setup and
pull-down.

offer a wider range of ergonomically accessible controls than
ever before. The design functionality of the Arrow 50 reflects
this evolution. The result is a totally new approach to head
design which complements the position, color and shape of
camera operational controls. Pan and Tilt controls are at the
rear for easy access. All rear-mount controls, including the
bubble level, are illuminated for easy operation under low
light conditions.
Using the latest CAD/CAM technology, precision milling and
advanced wear-resistant material, the Arrow 50 offers the
smoothest 7-position selectable drag system possible. It satisfies every need – from those who call for an ‘ultra-light’ touch
to those who demand the heaviest in drag resistance.

SERIES II TRIPODS
398
CAMERA SUPPORT
Lightweight Alloy and Carbon Fiber Tripods for Any Application on Any Terrain
Ultra-Light Carbon Fiber
Stronger, more durable and 25%
lighter than metal-based systems,
Miller’s Ultra-Light carbon fiber tubing optimizes strength and torsional
rigidity. Ultra-Light is manufactured
by a ‘pull-trusion’ method, which
draws three offset layers of fine woven
carbon fiber through a high temperature resin bath. The result is optimum
strength across all axis and the ultimate in shock, scratch and corrosion
resistance.
Positive Grip Rubber Feet
Positive grip rubber feet are designed
for use on all Series II tripods with
above ground Spreaders. The increased
pad diameter, suction rubber molding
and low center of gravity at the tripod
attachment all ensure optimum stability on a wide range of surfaces. All
Series II ENG tripods are available
with above-ground Spreaders, which
provide maximum stability when
mounting tripods on uneven surfaces.
Pro-Lok: Torque Limited Leg Clamps
No more over tightening, no more adjusting. Pro-Lok is a single-turn torque limited
leg clamp that is the fastest and safest means
of clamping tripod legs into position. Selfadjusting Pro-Lok eliminates over tightening
and keeps leg pressure constant under all
extremes.
Tripod Bowl and Ball & Socket Hip Joint
Reinforced ball and socket hip joints and
strengthened tripod Bowl combine in an
axial design to produce tripods that boast
the highest level of torsional rigidity – with
no backlash – at all heights and across any
terrain.
Quality Construction
All Miller tripods are constructed using the
most advanced alloys and polymers.
Specially milled, cold drawn alloy and crosslaminated carbon fiber tubing,
thermoplastic moldings and stainless steel
fixings combine to create lightweight,
corrosion-resistant tripods which are highly
stable under load.
Lightweight Series II Tripods
Single-Stage Series II Tripods
2-Stage Series II Tripods
Weighing only 4.4 lbs. in carbon fiber (5.5
lbs. in alloy) and boasting a 30 lbs. payload,
Miller’s lightest ENG tripod is ideal for
lightweight CCD cameras and camcorders.
Collapsing down to 32˝, they are extremely
compact and operate with a ground spreader
or above-ground spreader.
With a dual lower leg system, the Miller
Single-Stage provides a rock solid camera
base at all operating heights for cameras up
to 50 lbs. A new, reinforced ball and socket
hip joint and sturdy alloy or carbon fiber
tubing eliminate play and backlash to allow
for the smoothest shots possible.
Miller's 2-Stage tripods offer the ultimate in
torsional rigidity for all field operations.
Weighing only 5.3 lbs. in ultra-light CF, the
2-Stage axial design ensures equal stability to
regular tripods. With a 15 to 62” operating
range, any job can be tackled with a single
tripod.

PRO-JIB
The most versatile and cost-effective camera jib available, the Pro-Jib is
lightweight, compact and portable. Weighing only 25 lbs. and folding into
a soft reinforced shoulder bag (optional), the Pro-Jib is ideal for travelling
to a location shoot or for use in the studio. It is precision engineered to
deliver smooth action, while meeting the toughest physical demands of
ENG/EFP and studio production. Handling camera payloads up to 50 lbs.,
the Pro-Jib attaches quickly and easily to most conventional heads and
tripods, giving it flexibility for use as a cost-effective studio crane where onshot elevation is required, or on location where setup speed, weight and
size are critical.
■ The Pro-Jib is fitted with Pan and Tilt drag controls and a positive
lock for the Jib arm vehicle movement. The tilt lock is easily distinguished from the tilt drag by the large cone shape thrust locker
located under the tilt lock knob. Rotating the drag adjusters
increases or reduces the amount of drag.
Combined with Miller’s Maxi tripod, Pro-Jib is the lightest, most
versatile camera Jib arm available.
■ The Miller Undermount lets you track from ground level up to
nearly six feet with absolute stability. Unlike other reverse mounts,
Undermount fits directly below the existing Bowl to ensure that
the camera’s center of gravity remains at its most stable point.
■ Extends your camera height range to 2 meters (6’), allowing a sin-
gle operator to achieve impressive crane perspectives.
■ Uses standard barbell weights (not included), plus a unique sliding
tailshaft for precise counterbalance.
■ Tracking and elevation has never been easier or smoother.
■ Only 25 lbs., Pro-Jib is half the weight of comparable Jibs. It also
folds down to an incredibly compact 48˝ for easy transportation.

HIGHJACK
Miller Highjack
■ At normal operating heights, small height
changes are made easily. It is also much simpler
and faster to set up with a column, rather than
to adjust three legs individually.
■ Adds approximately 13˝ of vertical travel while
maintaining the ball level capacity of the system.
■ Practical and easy to shoot straight down when
working close to tables and shooting documents. The legs can be set low, so that the leg
joint goes under the top of the table, while the
column gets the camera to operating height.
■ Remarkably stable, even at full extension.

CAMERA SUPPORT
Tripods and Fluid Heads
Sachtler, the leader in professional camera support equipment, is guided by a simple philosophy: The cameraman can only transform his
ideas into fascinating footage when engineering
supports him in the proper manner. To that end,
Sachtler support equipment is designed and
manufactured to give the cameraman complete
flexibility, allowing maximum creativity without any restrictions. When it comes to sure handling, ease of operation and durability, Sachtler
sets the standard.
Frictionless Fluid Damping
Dynamic Counterbalance System
A prerequisite for perfect pictures is a panning movement without jerks and
vibrations. Sachtler’s patented damping system takes everything in stride. The
individual modules are frictionless and contain no hydraulic oil. This means
they are permanently leak proof. The damping action of our heads is identical
across both horizontal and vertical planes. Sachtler’s patented damping system is not influenced by pressure or temperature, from - 40°F to + 140°F, and
works without friction. This is because the damping modules perform no
other tasks, such as counterbalancing the camera.
The sliding camera mount and the balance plate respectively,
in combination with the Sachtler Touch & Go automatic
locking system, make a fast balancing system for the camera.
Most importantly, once adjusted, the settings cannot be lost.
The torque, while tilting the camera, is adjusted simply and
quickly by dial in counterbalance. The Sachtler torsion spring
elements form the most compact counterbalancing system.
They are adjusted individually for the different classes of cameras. Independent from the damping system, they work silently and without the need for maintenance.
Touch and Go Automatic Locking System
With Sachtler’s supporting equipment, one does not need to spend a lot of
time fiddling around. The Touch and Go system invented by Sachtler is the
best proof of this. The camera is automatically locked after being placed onto
the fluid head, and all settings stay unchanged. The safety lock protects
against accidental release.
Precision Manufacturing
Parts and structural components for all Sachtler’s fluid heads
have to pass quality control before being used. That means
passing fatigue tests simulating five years of continuous use.
DV Systems — Digital Support for Every Budget
Today’s compact digital cameras require light, fast and highly versatile camera support systems. Starting from the DV2, all the way up to the DV12, Sachtler has a solution tailored for just about every conceivable digital camera package available today. All feature
Sachtler’s patented Counterbalance system and Touch and Go wedge plates. And all,
except the DV2, feature sliding camera platform to ease in the balancing of your camera.

enlarged height range (lower bottom and higher top position), rendering them more universal. Locking of the legs is
achieved in seconds by Sachtler’s quick clamping. Heavy-duty versions are available for extra stability. The heavy-duty
aluminum tripod has a 20mm diameter tube vs. 16mm, and the heavy-duty carbon fiber model has a 24mm diameter
tube vs. 22mm. All heavy-duty two-stage tripods have a folding tripod handle.

The first manufacturer to use carbon fiber for tripod design, Sachtler’s carbon fiber is especially twist-safe since it is
drawn out of one piece. Lighter and more stable than aluminum, carbon fiber does not bend or corrode and is less influenced by temperature. The standard ENG carbon fiber tripod has a tube diameter of 16mm and is available in
Medium or Long. A heavy-duty version is also available.

100mm Quick Deployment Tripods
Especially developed for use in ENG, the Hot Pod tripod is the fastest in the world. There is no other tripod with which one can be ready to shoot so fast. The central locking system is activated on all three legs
at the same time, while the pneumatic center column easily makes it possible to have the lens at a height
of over seven feet. The elevation force of the center column is factory set and does not require any setup.
When moving to another location, it can be carried by its handle located at the center of gravity.

1-90/2-75 Vario Pedestals • 1-90/2-75 Studio Pedestals
■ The Vario and Studio series Pedestals are
perfectly suited for all weights and sizes of
modern broadcast cameras for OB and
studio use.
■ The compact, modular construction of
these pedestals achieves maximum stability
at a relatively low weight. Precision engineering techniques are employed to guarantee the optimum setup for any studio or
OB work.
■ The Pedestals are steered by a removable
hand wheel on which holders are fitted for
trim weights to compensate for temperature changes during a shooting session.
■ The Vario and Studio pedestals use a low pressure system with a safety pressure valve, preventing over pressure of air to the pedestals. A
column lock and Sachtler Quickfix mount for
fast changes of the fluid head are standard, as
is the friction damping which prevents
unwanted movement of the column during
rapid tilting.
■ Whether on hard rubber wheels or optional
pneumatic tires, the Vario Peds can shrink to
27˝ doorway clearance for narrow passages.
The Dolly base may be folded for easy transport. Crab and steer switching, individual
wheel brakes and cable guards are standard on
both pedestals.

CII Pedestal and Combi Pedestal Portable Pedestals
■ The Sachtler C II and Combi Pedestals offer the performance of a
studio pedestal with the portability to go on the road to outside
events.
■ The column utilizes a low pressure pneumatic spring. To fill the
column simply attach the manual compressor and fill with air --no
pressure cylinder is needed.
■ The compact modular construction of the C II and Combi pedestal
allow set up without any tools and makes transporting them an easy
one person task.
■ The only difference between the C II and the Combi Pedestal is that
the Combi is a steerable pedestal and the C II is a non-steering
stand alone pedestal

■ The modular design of the pedestals
means that the steering wheel, column and
dolly form three easily portable lightweight
components which can be assembled in
seconds without tools. Due to the
increased weight, the Studio Pedestals provide just the right feel for maneuvering in
the studio, while keeping all the advantages of an OB pedestal – narrow track
ability, in particular.

CAMERA SUPPORT
Why Vinten?
The video picture is essentially dynamic, therefore camera movement needs to be perfectly smooth. The ability
to start a Pan or Tilt and stop it without any camera
shake is absolutely essential. To avoid backlash at the
end of a camera move, a totally rigid platform for the
head to sit on is critical. The ability to move from place
to place, quickly and easily – absolutely vital.
All Vinten Pan and Tilt Heads feature a combination
of a unique counterbalancing system which offers “perfect camera balance” and a fluid damping system which
incorporates continuously variable adjustment for precise and stable camera movement. Vinten’s range of
tripods, while robust enough to provide total stability,
set up fast, and are lightweight for easy transport and quick action deployment.
As the world leader in the manufacture of studio, lightweight and OB camera support for over sixty years, Vinten allows
cameramen to produce the most creative pictures possible. The winner of numerous awards for design and engineering,
and the possessor of an unsurpassed reputation in the broadcast industry, is it any wonder that Vinten equipment can be
seen in the studios of the world’s TV broadcast stations?
FEATURES
Pan and Tilt Head Balancing
Drag Systems
If a camera is not counterbalanced, you need a considerable amount of physical effort to control the tilting
action, and poor picture quality can result. The
function of a Vision balance system is to provide an
infinitely variable adjustment to compensate for the
variety of portable camera and lens combinations
available. Comprised of an innovative and patented
spring mechanism, Vinten’s patented counterbalance
system permits fast, simple camera balancing at any tilt
angle within the head’s range and weight capacity.
Whichever Vision head you use, adjust it once to get
perfect “hands off ” camera balance at any angle over
the full 180° range of tilt. A ‘‘Perfect Balance System’’
for portable and studio cameras, it allows total control
and provides precise camera movement.
Without some form of drag control to provide the right amount of resistance or
"damping", it would be almost impossible to control any camera movement. It is a
key feature of any Pan and Tilt head system. Vinten uses two types of drag systems:
TF (Thin Film): TF is an innovative 'non-contacting' new drag system which ensures consistent drag and constant performance over a temperature range of - 40º to + 60ºC. The drag
characteristic has been developed to ensure the
critical slow start-up of movements and to offer
you total control with a seamless transition into
“Whip Pan” and instant recovery to the original
drag setting at the finish of movement. The drag
knobs are detented to give a dial-in "feel" and
prevent any backdriving during operation.
LF (Lubricated Friction):
The LF is a progressive,
striction free drag, where
the torque is provided from
a sliding contact between
dissimilar surfaces. The variable drag is adjusted to provide a non-linear torque
speed characteristic which
allows "whip-pan" movements.
Torque Safe Clamps
The clamping efficiency of tripod legs is a key function to maintain reliability and safety. Utilizing torque-lock principles, Vinten engineers developed “Torque-safe” — a tripod clamping system which always maintains its factory set efficiency. Standard on all tripods, except the PRO-130,
the clamp can never be stressed, as the torque limiter prevents over-tightening of the clamp. It is also self-adjusting with a detente system. When
the knob is turned to its first detente, you are provided with a tactile feedback, confirming optimum clamping.

• Infinitely variable drag with proven LF technology
• Back-Lit and calibrated drag knobs
• Flick-On/Flick-Off Pan and Tilt Brakes
• Digital counterbalance readout
• Illuminated Leveling Bubble
• Standard 100mm Leveling Ball
• Weighs only 6.2 lbs.
Slightly heavier at 6.2 lbs., the Vision 11 offers additional capacity (up to 29 lbs.), plus it has illuminated controls to allow fast camera balancing and leveling, even in poor lighting. Combine with a 2-Stage
Carbon Fiber or Aluminum tripod, and you have a
package with the biggest height adjustment, yet the
smallest to carry. Ideal for all ENG assignments.
Vision 8 and 11 — Lightweight Heads for the Future
Superbly engineered and designed for use in professional broadcast, educational and corporate poductions, the Vision 8 and Vision 11 simultaneously provide the ultimate in lightweight support with exceptional robustness — even in the toughest shooting conditions.
■ Field proven LF Fluid Drag system ensures
that the smoothest movement is always
achieved, with built-in ‘on demand’ Whip
Pan capability. Drag is activated by the
new style controls which are ergonomically
positioned to provide the simplest operation and strongest protection, even in
tough handling situations.
■ Continuously variable fluid damping
enables the “feel” of a camera to be perfectly adjusted to any shooting situation. Pan
drag and tilt drag work beautifully, and
since the camera is perfectly balanced, it
can be left at any angle - totally hands free
- without having to lock off the tilt brake.
■ Adjustable camera mounting plate with
unique rubber grip strips hold the camera
rock steady.

■ Interlock device prevents the camera
mounting plate from sliding off the head
when the plate lock is released.
■ Unique design features allow fast setup – a
must if you are continuously on the move.
The leveling bowl has a double threaded
screw shank which allows the bowl lock to
be tightened and released quickly. Very
handy when you are constantly adjusting
the bowl to level the camera (especially on
uneven terrain).
■ A single rotary knob on the back of the
heads ensure variable adjustment for perfect camera balancing. Vinten's patented
spring-assisted, counterbalance system
allows perfect “hands-off ” continuously
variable camera balance at any tilt angle
from - 90° to + 90°. Any camera combination can be quickly and easily balanced.
■ Ideal for the latest portable digital cam-
corders and camera combinations.
■ Tough die-cast body ensures robustness,
while quality design and construction provide a lifetime of precision.
■ To assist in dim lighting, the drag knob of
both heads are backlit with amber illumination. The illumination level is adjusted
accordingly (depending on the lighting
conditions) by a light sensor built into the
digital readout. For further convenience,
the leveling bubble of the Vision 11 is also
illuminated.
■ The Vision 11 has the advantage of a digital
counterbalance readout, with repeatable balance setting for even faster setup. The display is activated by a simple press of a button and remains visible for 15 seconds.

Taking design and engineering to new levels, the Vision 100 and 250
incorporate TF (Thin Film) drag system for consistent drag and constant
performance from - 40°C to + 60°C. The TF system gives you precise
movement and excellent camera control during the critical slow start-up
of your shot — providing seamless transition into Whip Pan and instant
recovery to the original drag setting at the finish of the movement.
Calibrated with variable adjustment and a single turn rotation from fully
On to Off, the drag knobs are backlit for easy viewing and detented to give
a ‘dial-in feel’, ensuring that settings are always maintained.
They incorporate Vinten’s patented ‘‘Perfect Balance
System’’, which is linked to a micro-controller providing a
digital readout for camera center of gravity positions.
Camera balance positions can be easily set up with repeatable precision, and a simple e-Prom provides a memory
which stores balance positions even when the battery is
removed or replaced. The micro-controller has a built-in
light sensor that responds to bright and low conditions,
varying the lumination intensity on the digits.

Six decades of engineering, combined with today’s state-of-the-art
technology, has resulted in a family of fluid heads so technically
advanced that they seem virtually attuned to the operator.
Operation is exquisitely smooth, counterbalance is a breeze in any
configuration, controls are easy to access and easy to operate.
Handcrafted from the finest high tech metal alloys and composites,
they also offer a host of smart features. Patented drag controls
allow various progressive and repeatable intensity levels in both Pan
and Tilt modes. Versatile graduated dial-in counterbalance provides
quick, precise and repeatable setups. Fluid modules are hermetically sealed for long life, and the heads themselves are finished in
rugged black scratch-proof exteriors.

EXPANSION WEB
The Expansion Web riser system is designed for those who need the portability of
the Spider Pod, but require a larger standing area for cameras with studio controls. Based on a modular concept, the Expansion Web provides many advantages
over a traditional riser. The 2 x 2´ square panels interlock in a variety of configurations to accommodate a myriad of shooting requirements.
■ Similar to the Spider Pod, the Expansion Web is separated from the tripod riser to eliminate
any potential shake caused by operator movement. The modules form a platform large enough
to accommodate a chair or stool for longer shooting times.
■ Portability makes the Expansion Web an ideal choice for remote broad-cast needs, corporate
video departments and staging companies. It eliminates the need for a staging riser, sets up
quickly and is easy to transport and store.
■ Constructed of high quality component materials, such as anodized aluminum and a carpeted
slip-resistant surface. Each modular square is carefully designed to interlock with the others for
a strong stable standing platform. The ability to interlock from all sides is the key to the Web’s
versatility and portability.

CAMERA SUPPORT
Designed for professional videographers and news crews who need to raise their camera’s viewpoint, the unique Spider Pod elevates you and your tripod two feet — with
speed and rock solid stability. With the Spider Pod you can now easily shoot above
crowds and capture unobstructed, stable images. Large staging risers are often used as
camera platforms. However, as you shift your footing, the camera and tripod may
shake, producing an unstable video image. Add multiple shooters, or use the camera
zoomed in with a long focal length, and the problem becomes significantly worse. The
Spider Pod eliminates all this by featuring a separate tripod riser and separate standing platform — providing rock solid support.
