Miller Tripods, a leader in the production of innovating camera support solutions, will display its new CompassX series (CX) at the Future Art Broadcast Trading L.T.D. stand (ZB5-B40) at CABSAT 2018. Future Art Broadcast Trading L.T.D., Miller's dealer in both Dubai and Iraq, supports the company's complete range of products, including Miller's CX fluid heads. The new series currently offers five models to choose from - CX2, CX6, CX8, CX10 and the CX18.
The new CX fluid heads incorporate Miller's CB PLUS counterbalancing technology. All five models feature 16 positions of counterbalance for fine, rapid adjustment, while the side loading base plate enables fast and easy mounting, and alighting of camera rigs. The inherent wide payload range of the CX series provides maximum flexibility when switching cameras or adding accessories. Its robust construction guarantees a long, low maintenance service-life and low cost of ownership.
"As one of the fastest growing regions in the world for media and entertainment, Miller strives to bring innovation and professional quality camera support solutions to the Middle East market," says Joseph White, Regional Sales Manager Asia & Africa, Miller Camera Support Equipment. "Our CompassX series features strong durability while supplying users with the right feel to every application."
The CX2 and CX6 boast a payload range of 0-8kg and 0-12kg respectively, and 3+0 pan-and-tilt drag positions with a 75mm ball levelling mounting base for lighter rigs where portability is important. Where more fluid drag is required, the CX8 and CX10 both support 5+0 drag positions, a 0-12kg payload range and a 75mm and 100mm ball levelling mounting base. The models top out with the CX18, which features a 0-16kg range, 5+0 positions pan-and-tilt of drag and 100mm ball levelling mounting base.
While all CX models are designed for strength and durability, the range offers standard features to suit most applications, as well as distinguishing characteristics to each model. The set of fluid heads in this five-option series deliver on Miller's "right feel" and are backed by a three-year warranty promise that videographers and cinematographers have come to expect.
