The OConnor Ultimate 2065 Fluid Head Package (Mitchell) includes a long European-style camera platform with a quick release plate, a two-piece pan handle, a Mitchell base, and a tie-down. Designed as a replacement for the 2060HD, the 2065 Fluid Head has an increased payload of up to 89 pounds and shares many ergonomic features with higher payload contemporaries like the OConnor 2575 and 120EX. This head features infinitely variable counterbalance with a crank-style handle, stepless pan and tilt drag, a soft left-hand rest, and a single-handed platform release with a safety catch.
Highly ergonomic design elements shared with the OConnor 2575 include conveniently located controls at camera operator’s (left) side of the head, dual scales for balancing your camera rig, four handle rosettes, and an illuminated bubble level. The collapsible counterbalance crank handle enables accurate and continual counterbalance adjustments, suiting this head to contemporary cinematography, where lighter cameras, larger lenses, and their requisite accessories are being continually developed in varying weights.
