Miller CX8 Tripod System Overview

Designed for videographers, the Miller CX8 Fluid Head with Toggle 2-Stage Alloy Tripod System offers a lightweight overall weight, payload support of up to 26.4 pounds, a sturdy two-stage folding design, and a mid-level spreader included. Whether you're shooting low to the ground or above the heads of spectators, the large height range will come in handy. The wide payload range is supported by a 15+0 step counterbalance and five fluid drag positions, plus a zero drag position. Read on for more information on the individual parts of this tripod system.

Miller CX8 Fluid Head

The Miller CX8 Fluid Head is designed to accommodate a wide payload range with 16 steps of counterbalance. Pan, tilt, and counterbalance can all be set to zero, enabling even the lightest of cameras to be supported. Maxed out, this head is rated to support camera setups up to 26.4 pounds, adequate for small cinema cameras with rigs or medium sized ENG camcorders. Securing your camera or rig is easy. The sideload plate design enables you to simply drop in your camera without the alignment issues posed by rear-loading variations. The plate offers 2.4" of sliding range to balance your rig.

To survive fast-paced shooting environments, the CX8 is die-cast from a lightweight, yet durable metal alloy with composite polymers and precision ball-bearings for smooth mechanical operation. Even in harsh conditions, the CX8 will perform reliably. The base of the CX8 is a 75mm ball for mounting to compatible tripods and grip equipment. An illuminated bubble level makes it easy to level the CX8 in dark environments. A fixed length pan handle is included, and a second rosette is available for attaching an optional second pan handle.
