A Miller Compass 20 fluid head with Solo 3 stage carbon fibre tripod has proven to be more than tough enough on a recent assignment in the rapids and canyons of the Arkansas River in Colorado, USA. Nathan Ward from Grit & Thistle Film Company commented:
“ We do a lot of work in the back country, so we need a system light enough to carry in a backpack to the top of a mountain but robust enough to survive a ski shoot in a frigid climate with treacherous landscape. We get that versatility with Miller.”
For this recent shoot they went on a wet and wild adventure. Whitewater rapids were tackled as well as rough and dusty environments.
The documentary, The Land Defended: Veterans Expeditions and the Browns Canyon looks at the culture of adventure as experienced by 3 war veterans.
