Miller just announced their new Arrowx 1 to their line up of Arrowx fluid heads. A little bit ago, I talked to Miller Tripods about their new Arrowx 1 for a little “show and tell.” While this was not an in-person peek at the latest gear, I think we did a pretty good job showcasing what makes the Arrowx 1 interesting and unique.
The Arrowx 1, 100mm Fluid head, joins the highly successful Arrowx series: Arrowx 3, 5, and 7. At a favorable entry-level price point, the Arrowx 1 is an excellent choice for shooters with a smaller and lighter camera kit to use on a professional fluid head.

A vital feature of the Arrowx series is Miller’s patented 16 CB Plus™ technology – a unique sequential counterbalance design resulting in accurate and rapid setup. With a payload range of 0-16.0kg (0-35.3lbs) and five selectable fluid drag positions + 0, it delivers the flexibility, speed of setting up, and accuracy of the shot, professionals, expect and demand.
