OConnor Delivers New 120EX Fluid Head
Posted Mar 21, 2007

OConnor, a Vitec Group brand is now delivering the all-new 120EX Extended Capacity Fluid Head. The 120EX raises the camera package payload bar with a revolutionary counterbalance mechanism that provides support to 120 lbs in standard mode and up to 240 lbs in EX mode.

OConnor's engineers developed EX technology to address the heavy payloads often required for some of today's film and electronic cinematography systems when fully loaded. With its continuous counterbalance system and ultra-smooth pan and tilt fluid drag, the 120EX is custom designed for film-style shooting. This patented head delivers counterbalance through the full +/- 90° forward and backward range for camera packages weighing from 30 lbs. to 120 lbs.

As counterbalance for a camera package in excess of 120 lbs. is cranked into the head, it automatically begins limiting the forward and backward tilt range. At 147 lbs., tilt is limited to +/- 80°, at 188 lbs. to +/- 70°, and at 240 lbs. to +/- 60°. The 120EX is the perfect match for the OConnor Cine HD Tripod. Additionally, all existing accessories for the popular 2575C and 2060HD fluid heads are fully compatible with the 120EX.
