OConnor 1030DS Fluid Head & 30L CF Tripod w/ Floor Spreader & Case


1030DS Fluid Head (C1239-0001)


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. Users 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.

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.

The OConnor 1030D supports a payload up to 30 lbs. (13.6 kg) at a 6” (15cm) center of gravity and a +/-90° tilt range. The 1030Ds supports heavier payloads 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 1030Ds have interchangeable bases (e.g. 150mm or Mitchell for the 1030), accept the same front box mount as larger heads and offer full compatibility with other OConnor 1030 accessories. 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.

30L Carbon Fibre Tripod (C1251-0001)


At just 8.8 lbs (4 kg) the 30L's double extension design ensures it can safely and stably carry payloads of up to 209 lbs (95 kg) even at its maximum height of 63.4" (161 cm). And the 30L is versatile. Despite its generous height range, it folds down to a mere 29.5” (75 cm) for convenient travel. A smart quick clamping system offers secure and visible tripod lockdown. The system's integral spreader system offers easy trouble-free security. Removable rubber feet expose spikes for optimal traction and payload safety on a variety of surfaces.

OConnor's new 30L tripod system features an expanded payload range in a lightweight package that makes it the perfect companion for the new 1030D and 1030Ds Ultimate Fluid Heads.
