OConnor Ultimate 2575D Overview
The OConnor Ultimate 2575D Fluid Head (Mitchell) is a fluid head with a Mitchell Ball Base and Tiedown that supports high payload cameras rendering it suitable for cine-style shooting. Lightweight at 22.6 lb (10.4 kg), the fluid head sustains a heavy payload up to 90 lb (40.8 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 handrest enhances the Ultimate 2575D Fluid Head’s ergonomic design. You can achieve rapid pan movements owing to the fluid drag system that allows the camera to move from one position to other very quickly and recover without any spring back.
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 2575D Fluid Head. A collapsible counterbalance crank handle in tandem with a numerical readout allows for easy counterbalancing of the payload. Setting up the camera system in low-light conditions is simple with the illuminated level bubble.
