The Oconnor Ultimate 1030Ds Tripod System offers a wealth of features that have been borrowed from the larger Oconnor 2575 and 2060 systems 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, as well as the patented Oconnor Sinusoidal Counterbalance system that provides true, accurate balance at any point in the tilt range.  You will appreciate that the system counterbalances down to zero, a handy advantage considering the trend to lighter weight cameras.

The new ergonomic crank-style counterbalance control 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 new sideload platform enables rapid attachment of the camera as well as an extended range of movement for balancing front heavy setups.
