Miller CX Series Video Head Overview

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.

Is that a flat base mounting option for sliders?

Is that a flat base mounting option for sliders?
Asked by: Michael
The CX series is intended for 75 and 100 mm bowl mount. It might be possible to remove the M10 stud on the bottom of the mount and adapt it to a flat-mount (the Air version can do this)... But I would not try it - nothing in the manual suggest this is an option.

Is the 3rd step of drag on the CX6 similar to the 5th step on the CX8 or is it less? Is the difference just fewer steps in-between or is it less drag overall?
Asked by: Timothy
Not sure why the Staff is saying that Miller does not list drag settings on any head? I bought a CX10 and the complete specifications for the entire CX series are listed on pages 8, 9, and 10 of the manual. B&H staff - do your homework! Here is what the manual shows: CX2, 6, and 10 - drag settings 1-3 are identical. CX10 adds more resistance in settings 4-5. For the CX8 and 18, all settings are about 50% more than the CX10. And I highly recommend the CX10: Huge adjustment range to accommodate any size camera, and smooth as silk.

I will be upgrading from a Benro H8. I know this head is WAY better. My main complaint with the Benro is, the maximum drag is really weak. I want heavy drag that you really have to push on so slow movements are highly controlled. Is the heaviest drag on this head really stiff?
Asked by: Carl
Yes not only is the Miller more stiff at its maximum setting it also offers more steps in between the lightest and toughest setting.
