New Ultimate 1030D And 1030Ds Fluid Heads Hit Europe

News Image
Now cine professionals can seamlessly go between larger and smaller payloads while retaining the OConnor feel, interface and experience.
OConnor, a Vitec Group brand, introduces the new Ultimate 1030 D and 1030 Ds fluid heads designed especially for use with new full-format sensor, lighter weight cameras such as the RED Epic and Scarlet as well as the Sony F3.
An updated replacement of the popular Ultimate 1030HD and HDs, the new line offers a sporty industrial design and a slew of features that have been borrowed from the larger OConnors to let cinematographers seamlessly transition from heavier to lighter payload camera setups. These include the stepless, ultra-smooth pan and tilt fluid drag specifically enhanced to provide ultimate control and stability for digital cinematography shooting. The patented OConnor Sinusoidal Counterbalance system provides true, accurate balance at any point in the tilt range. Users will appreciate that the system counterbalances down to zero, a handy advantage since there is a trend to lighter weight cameras. For today’s versatile shooter, the transition from larger to smaller payloads has never been easier. And most importantly, the famous OConnor feel, remains the same regardless of payload.
This new 1030 D series features other user-friendly improvements that were previously only available on larger heads. For example there is the new ergonomic crank-style counterbalance control that simply pulls out of the rear of the head. Plus the Action Brakes for pan and tilt unlock through a single-handed squeeze. And the trusted OConnor drag system ensures constant control.
The OConnor 1030 D supports a payload up to 30 lbs. (13.6 kg) at a 6” (15cm) center of gravity and a +/-90° tilt range. The 1030 Ds supports up to 41 lbs. (18.6 kg) at 6” (15cm) COG with a +/- 60° tilt range.
Like the rest of the OConnor Ultimate heads, the 1030D and Ds have interchangeable bases (e.g. 150mm or Mitchel for the 1030), accept the same front box mount as larger heads and offer full compatibility with other OConnor 1030 accessories. Plus OConnor’s new 30L carbon fiber tripod system offers an expanded payload range in a lighter weight package which makes it the perfect companion for the 1030D and 1030Ds.
The OConnor 1030 D and Ds will be available this autumn.
