This head is the flagship of OConnor's new EXTENDED CAPACITY range of fluid heads - the EX range. Based on the new EX-technology this patented head features a new kind of stepless counterbalance system as well as a new ultra-smooth pan & tilt fluid drag designed for film style shooting.
OConnor's fluid heads are famous for ultimate control and stability for film style shooting.
Now, with the use of EX-technology OConnor can offer the features it has become famous for while offering an additional benefit: extended capacity. With a new counterbalance mechanism at the heart of the EX-technology, the 120EX can be boosted into EX-mode to achieve a whole new realm of counterbalance.
True and accurate balance is achieved through the sinusoidal EX-counterbalance technology. The EX-drag technology is ultra-smooth and stepless - just what OConnor is famous for.
Getting more than 100%! This is the best way to describe the EX-Mode on the new EX range of fluid heads by OConnor.
The EX fluid heads have a given payload range for the ±90° tilt range. With traditional counterbalance mechanisms any payload heavier than this maximum weight can’t be balanced.
Not with the EX range of fluid heads.
EX fluid heads can go far beyond that maximum payload by slowly limiting tilt range as the payload is increased. The maximum payload is reached at a tilt range of ±60°, which is much higher than the rate ±90° payload.
With the example of the 120EX, the payload for a ±90° tilt range is between 30-120 lbs (14-54 kg), but in EX mode the 120EX can counterbalance up to incredible 240 lbs (109 kg) at a tilt range of ±60°; all based on a 8” center of gravity.
Now you can get more counterbalance out of your fluid head than 100% - with the EX range of fluid heads by OConnor.
