EXTENDED CAPACITY 120EX FLUID HEAD
Industry leading cinematographers are turning to the
OConnor 120EX head. With the smooth OConnor feel and
infinitely adjustable control, this patented head is the only
product on the market to balance the huge capacity range
of 30 – 240 lbs (14 – 109 kg).
Product features
OConnor’s fluid heads are famous for ultimate control and
stability for film style shooting. 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 patented stepless counterbalance mechanism at the heart
of EX-technology, the 120EX can be boosted into EX-mode
to achieve a whole new realm of support. Getting more than
100%! This is the best way to describe the EX-Mode.
The 120EX head has a given payload capacity of 120 lbs
(54 kg) for the ±90° tilt range. With traditional counterbalance
mechanisms any payload heavier than this maximum weight
can’t be balanced. Not with the 120EX.
EX fluid heads can go far beyond their maximum payload
by slowly limiting tilt range as the payload is increased.
The maximum payload is reached at a tilt range of ±60°,
which for the 120EX is an incredible 240 lbs (109 kg)
based on a 8” center of gravity.
Have the freedom to create with even the largest lens:
choose the 120EX.
