Following in the tradition and reputation of the worldrenowned Arrowx series, the all-new ArrowFx is designed to be employed in television where augmented reality effects are inserted into the live broadcast and for cinema quality visual effects in the production of feature films and commercials.

Featuring a wide payload range, precision fluid drag and Miller’s innovative 16 position CB PlusTM counterbalance system, ArrowFx 5 delivers the flexibility, speed of set up and accuracy of shot.

Each arrowFX model comes with a 120mm sliding travel plate to help quickly rebalance changing camera payloads. Precision pan-tilt movements, supported by ball bearings, help deliver silky smooth starts and fluid, soft-stop actions. Precise floating pan-tilt calliper locks ensure bounce-free on-off locking. Illuminated controls allow users to work no matter what conditions they are in.

The robust, high resolution magnetic encoders integrated into the fluid head, precisely monitor and communicate, in real time, the positioning of the pan and tilt mechanisms along their axes.

Pan Resolution 1.6 million counts per 360°
Tilt Resolution 1 million counts per 360°.
