The new CompassX series of fluid heads are claimed to offer “the most flexible and durable fluid head”, covering camera payloads up to 18kg. The five new models are “the result of intensive user research and innovative design”, said Charles Montesin, global sales and marketing manager, Miller Camera Support Equipment.
The new CX heads incorporate Miller’s CB Plus enabling technology, which improves on traditional counterbalancing, and all the models offer 16 positions of counterbalance for fine, rapid adjustment. In addition, the side loading baseplate enables fast and easy mounting and alighting of camera rigs.
The wide payload range of the CX series provides increased flexibility when switching cameras or adding accessories.
The CX2 and CX6 have payload ranges of 0-8kg and 0-12kg respectively, 16-position counterbalance and 3+0 pan-and-tilt drag positions with a 75mm ball levelling mounting base for lighter rigs.
Where more fluid drag is required, the CX8 and CX10 both support 5+0 drag positions, a 0-12kg payload range with a 75mm or 100mm base. The CX18 offers a 0-16kg range, 5+0 positions pan-and-tilt of drag and 100mm base.
