Varizoom's 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 CrossFire FP and DSLRs
The CrossFire FP works brilliantly with DSLR cameras like the Canon 5D Mark II, 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, there is even 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.
VariZoom CrossFire FP in Tripod Mode: 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.
VariZoom CrossFire FP in Low-Flow Mode
Only the FlowPod and CrossFire FP allow Low-Flow shots from a handheld stabilizer, and with Varizoom's 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.
