OConnor has introduced its Ultimate 1030 D and 1030 Ds fluid heads, designed for use with new full-format sensor, lighter weight cameras such as the RED Epic and Scarlet, and Sony F3.
An updated replacement of the Ultimate 1030HD and HDs, the new line offers a sporty industrial design and a slew of features that have been borrowed from larger OConnors to let cinematographers transition from heavier to lighter payload camera setups. These include the stepless, ultra-smooth pan and tilt fluid drag specifically enhanced to provide control and stability for digital cinematography shooting.
The patented OConnor Sinusoidal Counterbalance system provides true, accurate balance at any point in the tilt range. The system counterbalances down to zero, an advantage since there is a trend to lighter weight cameras.
