EXTENDED CAPACITY 120EX FLUID HEAD FOR CAMERAS UP TO 120 LBS (54.0 kg) OR 240 LBS (108 kg) IN EXTENDED MODE
This head is the flagship of OConnor's new EXTENDED CAPACITY range of fluid heads - the EX range. Based on the new EX-technology this patented head features a new kind of stepless counterbalance system as well as a new ultra-smooth pan & tilt fluid drag designed for film style shooting.
OConnor's fluid heads are famous for ultimate control and stability for film style shooting. Now, 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 new counterbalance mechanism at the heart of the EX-technology, the 120EX can be boosted into EX-mode to achieve a whole new realm of counterbalance.
True and accurate balance is achieved through the sinusoidal EX-counterbalance technology. The EX-drag technology is ultra-smooth and stepless - just what OConnor is famous for.
Getting more than 100%! This is the best way to describe the EX-Mode on the new EX range of fluid heads by OConnor.
The EX fluid heads have a given payload range for the ﾱ90ﾰ tilt range. With traditional counterbalance mechanisms any payload heavier than this maximum weight canﾒt be balanced.
Not with the EX range of fluid heads.
EX fluid heads can go far beyond that maximum payload by slowly limiting tilt range as the payload is increased. The maximum payload is reached at a tilt range of ﾱ60ﾰ, which is much higher than the rate ﾱ90ﾰ payload.
With the example of the 120EX, the payload for a ﾱ90ﾰ tilt range is between 30-120 lbs (14-54 kg), but in EX mode the 120EX can counterbalance up to incredible 240 lbs (109 kg) at a tilt range of ﾱ60ﾰ; all based on a 8" center of gravity.
Now you can get more counterbalance out of your fluid head than 100% - with the EX range of fluid heads by OConnor.
