With a payload range from two to twelve kilograms the Compass
20 is the most versatile 75mm fluid heads in the Compass range
enabling a large choice of cameras and camera configurations to
be comfortably balanced.
It is designed for users of medium size and larger cameras who
require a light weight, compact 75 mm fluid head with the ability
to handle a wide range of payloads from 2 kg to 12kg with 4
positions of counterbalance and 5 levels of pan and tilt drag, plus
zero resistance.
The Compass 20 also boasts a point to mount an optional
external accessory block, capable of holding anything from a
monitor to an external recorder on its 1/4 and 3/8th inch screw
threads. For those on the go, a quick release camera mounting
system utilising the mini Euro Camera Plates allows the operator
to work quickly and integrate easily into existing camera support
inventories.
Constructed of lightweight hi-strength die-cast alloy, rigid
composite polymers, and ball bearing pan and tilt movement,
Compass 20 is extremely robust and delivers silky smooth pans
and tilts. The fluid drag system employs smooth start and soft
stop technology, well balanced diagonal drag transitions and
consistent drag resistance over temperatures ranging from -40C
to 65C.
Compass 20 is the compact heavy duty multifunctional fluid head
that will deliver good dependable results for many years.
It meets the demands of creative storytellers and comes with the
reliability and “THE RIGHT FEEL” that are the hallmarks of every
Miller Product.
Proudly designed and manufactured in Australia by Miller, the
inventors and creators of the first patented fluid head.
