Miller Camera Support, known for making solidly built tripods, has reported that they will be showcasing the new CompassX series at NAB NY 2017. The new line consists of five models: the CX2, CX6, CX8, Cx10 and the CX18.
Miller says that the new line of tripod heads has been designed with “speed, balance and strength,” later pointing to the strength of any tripod head as one of its key features.
“The inherent wide payload range of the CompassX 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,” says Miller. They’ve reported that the the CX2’s payload ranges from 0 to 8 kilograms (17.6 pounds), while the CX6, CX8, and the CX 10 both support payloads from 0 to 12 kilograms (26.5 pounds). The CX18 is said to hold up to 16 kilograms (35.3 pounds).
Miller says that they have incorporated their CS PLUS technology, which they say takes traditional counterbalancing a step forward, allowing for 16 different positions of counterbalance on all of the five models. Miller says this will allow for “fine, rapid adjustment.”
All five models feature a side loading base that is said to give users fast and easy mounting of both cameras and rigs.
"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."
Miller will be presenting their new line of tripod heads at NAB NY 2017, which will be held at the Javits Convention Center in NYC. The show will run from October 18th to October 19th, 2017.
