The 1030Ds Ultimate fluid head and 30L tripod system creates a complete package for cinematographers working with camera and lens setups weighing up to 41 lbs (18.6kg).
Combining the ultimate control and stability of the 1030Ds fluid head with the strong but lightweight carbon fiber 30L tripod creates a sturdy but portable support system with all the features required for cine applications.
A soft carrying case tailored for the head and tripod package makes it easy to protect the equipment during transport and provides a safe and easy way to carry it around locations.
1030Ds Ultimate Fluid Head
The Ultimate 1030Ds fluid head offers a wealth of features that have been borrowed from the larger OConnor 2575 and 2065 heads to let cinematographers seamlessly transition from heavier to lighter payload camera setups.
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 1030Ds supports heavier payloads up to 41 lbs (18.6 kg) at 6″ (15cm) COG with a +/- 60 degree tilt range.
Like the rest of the OConnor Ultimate heads, the 1030Ds has interchangeable bases (e.g. 150mm or Mitchell for the 1030), accepts the same front box mount as larger heads and offers 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 1030Ds.
30L Carbon Fiber Tripod
With the 30L Carbon Fiber Tripod, OConnor replaces the legacy 25L & 35L lines of tripods. Combining the benefits of new-age materials with precision engineering has created a support system which is both lightweight, yet solid and stable, an ideal fit for the new generation of smaller new Ultimate 1030D & 1030Ds Fluid Heads.
At just 8.8 lbs (4kg), the 30L’s double extension design ensures it can safely and stably carry payloads of up to 209 lbs (95kg) even at its maximum height of 63.4″ (161cm). And the 30L is versatile. Despite its generous height range, it folds down to a mere 29.5″ (75cm) 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.
