The OConnor Ultimate Fluid Head (Mitchell) is a fluid head with a Mitchell ball base and tiedown that incorporates design aspects of its higher payload contemporaries, rendering it suitable for cinematography. Lightweight at 22.9 lb (10.4 kg), the fluid head sustains a heavy payload up to 71 lb (32.2 kg) with greater drag. Conveniently located controls (pan and tilt brakes) at camera operator's side (left side) of the platform enable ease of operation and rapid familiarity.
The platform also houses dual scales for counterbalance and sports 4 handle rosettes that allow left or right hand operation as well as mounting from the front or rear. An intelligently placed, soft hand-rest enhances the Ultimate 2065 fluid head's ergonomic design. The Mitchell ball base provides for high mobility and is secured in place by the Mitchell tiedown.
A single-touch Euro-style platform release lever allows you to disengage the safety catch and open the lever effortlessly, providing high mobility to deal with location changes in the field. You can achieve sinusoidal counterbalance and stepless pan and tilt drag using the Ultimate 2065 Fluid Head.
