Cameras such as the Alexa in portable configuration or any lightweight digital cinema camera (from Sony, Canon, ARRI, AJA, JVC, Panasonic, Vision Research, RED) in maxed out studio configuration. OConnor Ultimate heads have been used on almost every Hollywood movie feature and episodic TV Drama since the early 1990s and OConnor heads in general have been heavily utilised in the industry since 1949. Continuously adjustable OConnor sinusoidal counterbalance and fluid drag that together give the ultra-smooth characteristic OConnor feel over the largest payload range.The 2560 From My Perspective. The 2560, like all OConnor fluid heads, has a stepless counter balance, a feature that is found exclusively on OConnor fluid heads, that makes a revelatory difference in terms of balancing the payload, regardless of the camera builds length, width, or center of gravity. If you are familiar with OConnor fluid heads, you of course already know this. The 2560 fluid head floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee and does everything in between with its unique ability to perform silky smooth pans and tilts and to make incredibly precise starts and stops. If youve never used one, I suggest you get your hands on one and see what a night and day difference it makes in your camera work in terms of both the effort and experience required and of course the results you get. You can actually see the difference an OConnor fluid head makes in your footage and youll never want to go back to using anything else. The 2560 in particular is a workhorse because it is so well balanced between its payload capacity and its compact form. It can hold heavier more well kitted out payloads than the 1030 modes but it also has a more compact design that maximizes its versatility in terms of possible applications. It can hold the weight but also be used in concert with even smaller sliders and jobs for example that some of the bigger OConnor fluid heads such as the 2575 or 120EX, which are too large for many of the newest and most situationally flexible camera support technologies. And as cinema cameras get lighter all the time, the 2560 will actually become an even more versatile piece of gear as time goes by.
And thats a rare thing to be able to say truthfully. Thats my take on why OConnor fluid heads are the right choice over other brands of fluid heads such as Sachtler or Manfrotto and reasoning behind choosing the 2560 over other OConnor fluid heads.
If you have any questions about the listing or would like to see any part of the package in greater detail i. Zoomed in further than you might be able to in the photo provided or any other reason you ought have, let me know and Ill do my beat to provide it. All the parts and pieces are in perfect functional and cosmetic condition, so Id be happy to provide any further evidence as far as that is concerned. The included case is a not the official case made for the 2560 but rather is a temporary though nonetheless functional, heavy duty hard case that has foam cut out to fit the various pieces.
It had to be done somewhat last minute so it doesnt look like a million bucks but it does the job its meant to. And since someone of course took the liberty of throwing away the original cardboard packaging I no longer have the original box and decide to throw it in because Im more confident in it getting its contents to their destination safely than a cardboard box. And although the included case is not the official 2560 Package form fitted Master Case, it does do the job and worked well enough for our shoot. All the various components have their own place or slot and they are all well protected and fit together in the case snuggly. It was able to be loaded with all the other camera gear safely and it was obviously more efficient for transportation over the 5 days than the original cardboard box.So you could continue to use it as a case for the fluid head package if you so choose. Please contact me and I will provide answers based on your location.
