  • Dynamic Fluid Drag System
  • Disc Lock Pan/Tilt Braking System
  • Sliding Camera Plate

The Miller DS-20 Fluid Head is perfect for today's professional ENG and corporate productions. Featuring a dynamic fluid drag system to provide consistent control through a wide range of settings, the Miller DS-20 offers an integrated counterbalance system. Shoot wherever you want with this rugged fluid head.

Multi-Step Pan & Tilt Fluid Drag System

The DS-20 fluid head incorporates Miller's multi-step 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.

  • Built-in bubble for horizontal leveling
  • Load capacity of 22 lb
