Miller has announced the release of the Solo-Q tripod, with the new Q-lock.
The Solo line of tripods was originally introduced in 2003, and now has been updated with their new Q-Lock system.
Solo, introduced by Miller in 2003, became an overnight success, as a sturdy, spreader-less, and lightweight tripod. In 2009, Rapid lock was announced, improving Solo’s speed of set up significantly. Over 40,000 Solo tripods later, Miller is adding Q-Lock and renaming Solo to Solo-QCharles Montesin, Global Director of Sales and Marketing, Miller Camera Support.
Solo-Q has been designed for on-location work but can be used for studio work.
The design eliminates the need for a spreader with the ability to adjust the leg angles quickly.
What is Q-Lock
The newly featured and patented Q-lock delivers a fast way to unlock and lock away the tripod.
Provided all the leg locks are loosened the legs will drop down completely when the Q-lock button is pressed. Drop one leg, determine the height you want and tighten the rapid locks. Drop the other legs to the same length and tighten.
When the shoot is finished, loosen the rapid locks and push all the legs together into its transport position. The Q-lock will automatically latch on.
All of the Solo-Q models are constructed from carbon fiber, and are available in 2 or 3 stage options in either 75mm or 100mm bowls.
