OConnor, a Vitec Group brand, launches the 2065 Fluid Head. Designed to handle popular digital cameras like the RED One, SONY F-35, and ARRI Alexa, the 2065 is loaded with the same popular features and controls that have made OConnor fluid heads the favorites of cinematographers worldwide.
Users will enjoy the benefits of OConnor’s stepless, ultra-smooth pan & tilt fluid drag -specifically designed to deliver the ultimate control and stability necessary for film-style shooting. OConnor’s patented sinusoidal counterbalance system provides true, accurate balance at any point in the tilt range.
Replacing the renowned 2060HD, the new 2065 shares the ergonomic design of OConnor’s higher-payload fluid heads like the popular 2575D and 120EX models. Pan and tilt breaks are conveniently located on the left side of the head–so operation is both intuitive and familiar. The 2065 also offers many of the same popular features as the 120EX. The platform is equipped with dual scales, one on each side, and four handle rosettes allow operation from either side of the head, as well as front or back handle mounting. A handy one-touch platform release lever enables one finger or hand action to undo the safety catch and open the lever, which speeds deployment and location changes in the field.
With a greater payload and drag than its predecessor, this new head weighs just 22.9 lbs. (10.4 kg) and has a payload of 0-71 lbs. (32.2 kg). Because OConnor fluid heads can be counterbalanced down to 0 pounds, they are the perfect tools for the current art of cinematography, where cameras keep getting lighter, lenses keep getting larger, and more accessories are constantly being developed. No matter how a camera setup is configured, OConnor can balance the payload.
List price for the new 2065 Fluid Head Package is $11,995 (Euro 8,595). Product delivery will begin in August 2010. For further information on OConnor please go to www.ocon.com or contact OConnor, 2701 N. Ontario St Burbank, CA 91504, Phone: 818-847-8666, Fax: 818-847-1205
