The Miller DS-20 Fluid Head (75mm Ball Base) delivers the level of quality that is needed for professional ENG and corporate production. Features a dynamic fluid drag system providing consistent control across all temperature ranges and through a wide range of settings. It also offers an integrated counterbalance system combined with a sliding balance plate for a wide tilt angle, as well as a quick release and automatic locking system, for quick setup and disengagement of your camera.

Multi-Step Pan & Tilt Fluid Drag System
The DS-20 fluid head incorporates Miller's Dynamic Fluid Drag system ensuring smooth, consistent fluid drag control across all temperature ranges and through a wide range of light and heavy settings. By being independent of payload weight, the dynamic system ensures smooth "starts" and dead "stops" for precise framing without any backlash. The system is fully sealed within sub-assemblies for a leak-proof, low maintenance life.
Preset Counterbalancing
The DS-20 uses a special designed counterbalanced system, to neutralize the effect of payloads and their centers of gravity. The built-in preset counterbalance system combined with a 60mm sliding camera platform optimizes tilt control in the intended capacity range. Allowing a +90/-70° angle tilt without worrying that the camera will topple.
Quick Release Camera Platform
Fitted with a precision, quick release camera platform that incorporates a sliding balance plate for fine tune payload balancing. The self-engaging action of the camera plate ensures rapid camera attachment in the field, while the built-in safety lock guarantees camera safety during setup and pull-down.
Safe at any temperature
Pressure or temperature does not influence the damping system; it has an operating range from -40°F to +149°F, and works without friction. Shoot wherever you want, from torrid heat to cold climates.
