About the OConnor 120EX

The OConnor 120EX Standard Film Fluid Head is 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.

The EX fluid heads have a given payload range for the +/- 90 degree 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 degree, which is much higher than the rate +/- 90 degree payload. With the example of the 120EX, the payload for a +/- 90 degree tilt range is between 30 and 120 lb (14 and 54 kg), but in EX mode the 120EX can counterbalance up to incredible 240 lb (109 kg) at a tilt range of +/- 60 degree; all based on a 8" center of gravity.

OConnor 120EX Features

  • Counterbalance System: The fluid head features a counterbalance system that will keep the camera from falling forward or backward when it is tilted. With the correct counterbalance, the camera will stay where you put it, throughout the entire +/-90 degree tilt range
  • Infinitely Adjustable True Fluid Drag: Fluid drag allows you to pan and tilt smoothly, without shake or vibration. The high viscosity fluid acts as a buffer, adding an adjustable level of resistance to the camera movement
  • Unmatched Versatility: The fluid head employs a modular design concept that allows you to choose different mounting bases (150 mm, Mitchell, Sachtler/Vinten), quick release platforms (OConnor, 120 mm Euro, Panavision Dovetail and Arriflex Plates) and handles for added flexibility
  • EX-Technology: EX fluid heads can go far beyond that maximum payload by slowly limiting tilt range as the payload is increased
