Designed for videographers, the Miller CX8 Fluid Head with Toggle 2-Stage Alloy Tripod System offers light overall weight, payload support up to 26.4 pounds, sturdy 2-stage folding design, and an included ground-level spreader. Whether shooting low to the ground or above spectators' heads, the large height range is sure to 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. See below for more information on the individual parts of this tripod system.
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.

Each stage features its own rotary clamp for secure locking, enabling support for payloads up to 55 pounds. Compatible spreaders, rubber feet, and dollies are available separately.
411 On-Ground Tripod Spreader
A On-Ground Spreader is chosen when shooting is performed on a level surface, such as studio, city streets, offices, sport fields and stadiums.

Attaches directly to the feet at the bottom of a tripod and its arms are telescopic to allow extension of a tripod leg without detaching the spreader.
