Miller Presents New
x
Compass Series

Euro and mini euro camera plates
may be used, using an optional sliding
platform that fits in place of the #1024
camera plate.
CompassX will be offered in a number
of systems including variety of tripods
and bags to suit every application.
The Solo 75 and Toggle tripods suit
CX2, CX6 and CX10 fluid heads. The
Solo 75 is a spreader-less lightweight
tripod for shooters on the go. The
Toggle is a well proven workhorse and
comes in on-ground and above-ground
spreaders.
In the 100mm range, CX10 and CX18,
Solo 100, Sprinter II and Toggle tripods
will be offered. Sprinter II is a patented
dual lock system designed to operate
the tripod stages independently or
in unison. The locks are located just
below waist height eliminating the
need to bend down to close the lower
locks. Sprinter II comes with ground
spreader or mid-level spreader.

Miller Camera Support is renowned for its innovative fluid
heads designed for durability, flexibility and ease-of-use...

M

iller Camera Support, a
leader in the production of
innovative camera support solutions,
is showcasing its new robust CompassX
series at the show on booth N920.
Technological advancements in
cameras and camera accessories,
in recent years, have resulted in
videographers and cinematographers
having more choices than ever when
deciding what gear to take on a shoot.
Shooters also consider several
aspects of the production when
choosing what tripod system will
cover the range of payloads used, as
it is likely they will use several size
lenses and accessories to capture the
shots required. Quick and efficient
tripod setup is needed in each unique
instance while reliability is imperative.
"Through intensive user research,
the innovative design of the CompassX
series delivers the most flexible and
durable fluid head solution for today's
videographers and their professional
requirements," says Charles Montesin,
Global Sales and Marketing Manager,
Miller Camera Support Equipment.
"After a successful premiere of the
new fluid heads at IBC, we're eager to
present them to the broadcast industry
attending NAB NY."
Counterbalance Plus
The
new
CompassX
series
incorporates Miller's patented CB
PLUS enabling technology, which
takes traditional counterbalancing
a step forward over traditional
counterbalance systems. All five
models feature 16 positions (15+0)
of counterbalance for fine, rapid
adjustment and the side loading base
plate enables fast and easy mounting
and alighting of camera rigs.
Counterbalance is used to counteract
the weight of the camera rig when
tilting, rendering the camera rig
weightless during the shoot. The
objective is to find the right settings
quickly, say after a lens change. The
amount of counterbalance force
required depends on the weight of
the rig and the location of its centre
of gravity. If the counterbalance force

Supporting role:
Miller Compassx

is too strong, then the rig will spring
back and counterbalance should be
set to a lower step. If it's too light, the
rig will drop forward or backwards, in
which case counterbalance should be
increased.
CB PLUS has eight steps on the dial to
go through to find the closest position,
then the CB PLUS switch enables fine
tuning of the counterbalance after
a rough CB position has been found.
Employing the latest counterbalance
technologies means that this is one
less thing the shooter has to worry
about.
Cornerstone
Miller's new CompassX series,
announced at the show, is designed
with speed, balance and strength as
its cornerstone. Offering five models
to choose from - CX2, CX6, CX8, CX10
and the CX18, all models come with
CB PLUS™. The inherent wide payload
range of CB PLUS provides maximum
flexibility and speed of setup,
when switching cameras or adding
accessories. The robust construction
of the CompassX guarantees a long, low
maintenance service-life and low cost
of ownership.
The CX2 and CX6 claim a payload
range
of
0-8kg
and
0-12kg
respectively, 15+0 positions of
counterbalance and 3+0 pan-andtilt 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 15+0 positions

Top of the Range: Compassx CX18

of counterbalance, 5+0 drag positions
and 0-12kg payload range. The CX8
comes with a 75mm ball levelling
mounting base while the CX10 comes
with a 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.
Support System
The CompassX series has been fitted
with a side loading base plate enabling
fast and easy mounting and alighting
of camera rigs. All models come with
the standard #1204 camera plate.
