O'Connor 1030D Ultimate 3 stage CF Tripod


The OConnor Ultimate 1030D fluid head tripod system is designed for use with new full-format sensor, lighter weight cameras such as the RED Epic, Amira etc and is an idea alternative to the Sachtler Video-20s, sharing the 100mm bowl mount and carry a 17.7kg payload capacity.


Tripod Head Mount

100mm Bowl

It is supplied in a hard tube with 3 stage Carbon Fibre legs (which are actually made by Sachtler!) and is an updated replacement of the Ultimate 1030HD and HDs, the new line offers a sporty industrial design and a slew of features that have been borrowed from larger OConnors to let cinematographers transition from heavier to lighter payload camera setups. These include the stepless, ultra-smooth pan and tilt fluid drag specifically enhanced to provide control and stability for digital cinematography shooting.

The patented OConnor Sinusoidal Counterbalance system provides true, accurate balance at any point in the tilt range. The system counterbalances down to zero, an advantage since there is a trend to lighter weight cameras.

Suitable for all cameras to full size HD with payload of 17.7 kg (39lb).
