The Crossfire Stabilizer is the same construction as the FlowPod Stabilizer but has a tripod instead of a monopod
The FlowPod and Handheld HD Cameras - The FlowPod is perfectly suited for compact, handheld HD cameras like the Sony EX-1, Sony NX5U, Canon XF300, Panasonic HPX-250, Panasonic AC160, or any other HD video camera up to 9 lbs. It will allow you to get continuous on-the-go stabilized footage with the unique ability to stop and operate in monopod mode for stationary shots, as well as the added bonus of low angle shots (with optional low-mode kit).
The CrossFire FP and DSLRs - The CrossFire FP works brilliantly with DSLR cameras like the Canon 5D Mark II (pictured at left), as well as the popular 7D, 1D Mark IV, and Rebel T2i. The CrossFire FP handles several of your shooting needs with one tool - tall tripod, stabilizer, low-angle stabilizer, low-angle fixed mount, and it's even upgradable to a fully-supported arm/vest stabilizer system. For the still photography enthusiast, we even offer an optional 3-axis photo ball-head accessory to turn the tripod section into a professional photo tripod when it isn't being used for video.
Unrivaled Multi-Function Capability - The VariZoom CrossFire FP offers a significant advantage over all other handheld stabilizers with its tripod mode. Capable of heights up to 69" and as low as 20", the tripod mode allows you to keep shooting without having to switch between stabilizer and tripod. The ultra-light tripod legs are sturdy and compact with a built-in leveling bubble. Additionally, the tripod can be separated from the stabilizer section, allowing you to use the stabilizer in Lite Mode and use the tripod as a separate docking stand.
Upgrades and Options- Arm/Vest Upgrades - Only the VariZoom CrossFire FP has the flexibility to operate in so many modes and offer multiple, affordable upgrade paths and options. One of our most popular upgrades is the DV Sportster Arm/Vest Stabilizer System for turning a handheld unit into a fully-supported dynamic system. For heavier cameras or more demanding applications, we also offer the professional Navigator system (which can also be upgraded from there).
Low-Flow and Fixed Low Modes - Only the FlowPod and CrossFire FP allow Low-Flow shots from a handheld stabilizer, and with our patented system, the camera operator is able to adjust the camera to any desired height off the ground or can even adjust to levels below the operator's feet. The advantage of the CrossFire FP over the FlowPod, however, is that the tripod is removed and doubles as a docking/balancing stand in Low Mode, allowing you to dock the unit during setup and also operate the system as a fixed low-angle, pan-capable mount only inches from the ground.
A superbly versatile tool for HD Video, the CrossFire FP can be used as a fluid handheld stabilizer, rock-solid tripod, gliding low-mode tool, fixed low-angle mount, or full-stabilizer system. The CrossFire FP is the new generation of products we've been selling worldwide for years.
Our proprietary handle & gimbal design can either be unlocked as a fluid gimbal for floating stabilizer shots or locked inline for stationary monopod shots. The slim design and narrow base allow the shooter to hold the CrossFire FP close to the body, relieving stress and enabling tight maneuvers in the most varied circumstances.
The optional XFFP-LF Low Flow kit allows gliding low perspective shots and makes the CrossFire FP a 5-in-1 tool.
