O'CONNOR 2560 HEAD
OConnor introduces the 2575’s baby brother…the 2560, perfectly suited to the adaptable, a la carte configurations of accessorised digital cinematography. For example cameras such as the Alexa in portable configuration or any lightweight digital cinema camera (from Sony, Canon, ARRI, AJA, JVC, Panasonic, Vision Research,RED) in ‘maxed out’ studio configuration. OConnor Ultimate heads have been used on almost every Hollywood movie feature and episodic TV Drama since the early 1990’s and OConnor heads in general have been heavily utilised in the industry since 1949.
Crafted for “cine-style” shooting, the new head design delivers cinema standard positioning of controls, including brakes and rosettes, for easy and intuitive use. The 2560 fluid head also includes OConnor’s patented sinusoidal counterbalance system for true, accurate balance at any point in the tilt range. In combination with the company’s stepless, ultra-smooth pan & tilt fluid drag, the 2560 delivers the control and stability that have been characteristic of OConnor for over 60 years. “Whatever camera configuration our users need to support, whether digital or film, the Ultimate 2560 will accommodate them without compromising on performance,” said Steven Turner, Product Manager for OConnor. “Offering many of the same features as our flagship 2575D head, the 2560 provides the quality and reliability synonymous with OConnor in a lighter weight, smaller form factor. Whether you’re looking to support an increasing number of accessories, gain more flexibility and mobility in the field, or future-proof your camera support system, the 2560 delivers a perfectly balanced solution for digital cinema shooters.”
The Ultimate 2560 fluid head is housed in lightweight magnesium, ensuring a best-in-class performance and a superlative power to weight ratio. Weighing less than 18 pounds, the 2560 is capable of supporting camera payloads up to 66 pounds at a 6-inch centre of gravity above the platform. In addition, each head comes with a carbon fibre cover for improved stiffness and maximum durability in extreme conditions.
As camera technology continues to evolve rapidly, OConnor’s newest fluid head is one of several products the company is introducing to meet the shifting needs of cinematographers and operators. “All of OConnor’s products are engineered to meet the demands of today’s challenging camera work, and now, more than ever, flexibility means everything,” added Turner. “The Ultimate 2560, with its high latitude of range and infinite, accurate balance and drag, is the very definition of versatile.”
O'CONNOR 60L TRIPOD LEGS
Lighter weight and speedy with a heavy capacity
The new OConnor 60L carbon fiber tripod offers a superior lightweight support option for the OConnor Ultimate 2065 and 2575D fluid heads. The tripod combines the benefits of new-age materials with precision engineering to provide a support system that is lighter weight with fast setup features, yet solid enough to carry large film camera configurations.
The 60L weighs just 9 lbs (4.1 kg) and has a double extension design that is safe and stable carrying payloads of up to 209 lbs (95 kg), even at its maximum height of 60.6" (154 cm). Despite its generous height range it folds down to a mere 29.9" (76 cm).
The smart quick clamping system includes visible tripod clamp lockdown and this is coupled with a pre-set mid-level spreader to ensure secure, easy deployment in every situation. Removable rubber feet expose spikes for optimal traction and payload safety on a variety of surfaces.
OConnor's 60L is a lighter weight, speedy setup tripod with a Mitchell top or 150 mm bowl, making it the ideal choice for professional cinematographers who require a flexible shooting package for larger cameras.
