O'Connor introduces the 2575’s baby brother…the O'Connor 2560. Perfectly suited to the adaptable, a la carte configurations of accessorised digital cinematography. 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. O'Connor 2560 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.
The O'Connor 2575-C Ultimate is the pinnacle of true fluid head design. With a payload capacity of up to 133.0 lbs (60.5 kg) it is just the right choice for large studio or EFP camera payloads requiring precision handling. This head continuously variable dual-axis sinusoidal counterbalance for finger-tip camera control throughout the 180° tilt range, and continuously variable fluid drag to suit any shooting style. The top stage slides to accommodate uneven payloads due to heavy lenses or magazines, and has a 120mm euro quick-release for rapid setups and take-downs. As one might expect from a fluid head of this caliber, the O'Connor 2575-C is covered by an unbeatable 5-year warranty for parts and labor as well as friendly, competent technical support.
