Drag adustment negligible

  • Excerpt: I've shot with Miller stix most of my career and am disappointed to find that the adjustable drag on the DS-20 head is negligible at best. I made double sure the pan and tilt locks were off, but honestly, I can't tell a difference between full and no drag. I sent one back and reordered, but the second one is the same way. Unfortunately I'll be returning it as well and choosing another.
  • Pros: Easy To Use
  • Cons: Poor Design

Many Cameras, One Tripod

  • Excerpt: Love this system. Heard that it's best to 'reach' when investing in a tripod - get a good one and it'll serve you well over time. You'll go through several cameras during the life a single, solid tripod. I need to support a big DSLR rig with a bunch of accessories (monitor, H4n, Matte Box, etc) and this system handles it well (up to 20 lbs). The mid-level spreader and the large rubber feet provide real nice stability too.
  • Pros: Good Stability

Unstable,

  • Excerpt: I use this tripod everyday for commercial production. It is nice and light to carry, but if you burp near it, it shakes. It actually shakes right in the head, so there is nothing you can do. Wide shots are fine, but don't plan on getting tight shots with it. Junk, I would not buy it again.
  • Pros: Carry Strap, Folds Small, Lightweight
  • Cons: Unstable

Great tripod legs and head

  • Excerpt: Use mostly when doing 5D video. Great movement on the head, only thing is a little more weight would make it a little better, probably would be best in the 8-16lb range.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Lightweight
