The OConnor Ultimate 1040 Fluid Head is a lightweight fluid head that shares features with the other fluid heads in the OConnor Ultimate fluid head line. This allows operators to easily transition between lighter and heavier cameras without having to relearn or think about the differences between fluid heads. The head supports 45 pounds’ worth of camera and accessories at a center of gravity (COG) 5 inches above the camera platform. The counterbalance system helps prevent the camera from tilting forward or back on the head on its own and helps the camera to remain in the position the operator places it without requiring additional effort to hold it in place. The counterbalance system on the 1040 is a stepless system, so it is continuously variable from the maximum weight the head can support all the way down to zero. This makes the 1040 extremely versatile and suitable for use with heavy ENG-style cameras all the way down to lightweight cameras, while maintaining the same operational feel.

With the 30L Carbon Fiber Tripod OConnor replaces the legacy 25L & 35L lines of tripods. Combining the benefits of new-age materials with precision engineering has created a support system which is both lightweight, yet solid and stable, an ideal fit for the new generation of smaller new Ultimate 1030D & 1030Ds Fluid Heads.

At just 8.8 lbs (4 kg) the 30L’s double extension design ensures it can safely and stably carry payloads of up to 209 lbs (95 kg) even at its maximum height of 63.4″ (161 cm). And the 30L is versatile. Despite its generous height range, it folds down to a mere 29.5” (75 cm) for convenient travel. A smart quick clamping system offers secure and visible tripod lockdown. The system’s integral spreader system offers easy trouble-free security. Removable rubber feet expose spikes for optimal traction and payload safety on a variety of surfaces.

OConnor’s new 30L tripod system features an expanded payload range in a lightweight package that makes it the perfect companion for the new 1030D and 1030Ds Ultimate Fluid Heads.
