OConnor Introduces 1040 Fluid Head And Flowtech100 Tripod Combo

OConnor has introduced a camera support system that pairs the Ultimate 1040 fluid head with the flowtech100 tripod. The new combo allows camera operators to move from heavier to lighter payload camera setups quickly and without compromise.

Now fitted with OConnor's large Euro Plate as standard, the Ultimate 1040 allows for greater head capacity than its 1030 predecessor, bringing the maximum payload at five inches center of gravity from 35 pounds up to 45 pounds while retaining the same performance and ergonomic features found in the earlier model.

The Ultimate 1040 is made of high-performance magnesium and aluminum alloys with stainless steel, and the head is finished with carbon fiber to match the look of the flowtech100 tripod. The head also features the same construction found in larger OConnor heads, including wide tilt bearings for extra stability at the highest payloads.

OConnor's Ultimate 1040 head includes the stepless, ultra-smooth pan-and-tilt fluid drag specifically enhanced to provide control and stability, as well as the OConnor Sinusoidal Counterbalance system that provides accurate balance at any point in the tilt range.

OConnor’s Ultimate 1040 – flowtech100 system, including rubber feet, carry handle and case, will be available in October 2019.
