OConnor will feature its 2560 fluid head, which offers versatility for both lightweight and heavy rig setups and enables cinematographers to move faster and more efficiently while still maintaining control and stability. The continuously adjustable 2560 offers fluid drag that together provide the ultra-smooth OConnor feel over the largest payload range. The 2560 offers cine-standard position of controls (including brakes) and a front handle mount for controlled positioning of the camera, as well as a lightweight magnesium housing and carbon-fiber cover for best-in-class performance, power-to-weight ratio, and reliability. The 2560 supports any lightweight digital cinema camera (such as those from Sony, Canon, ARRI, AJA, JVC, Panasonic, Vision Research, and RED) in a “maxed-out” studio configuration.

The 2560 is in daily use by cinematographers worldwide on a broad range of challenging location shoots. Here, renowned DP Christian Herrera describes his experience using the camera head on location in Costa Rica.
