OConnor has upgraded its workhorse Ultimate 2575 Fluid Head with the new D model. Improvements include ergonomic changes to controls and more pan-bar mounting points. The 2575D retains the counterbalance specifications and other characteristics that contributed to the popularity of its predecessor.

 Camera operators will find that the relocation of all controls on the platform to the operator's side (left) provide easier adjustment. The 2575D's one-touch platform release lever allows for one finger or hand action to undo the safety catch and open the lever which speeds deployment and location changes in the field.

The upgraded fluid head's platform now features dual platform scales one on each side and four handle rosettes to allow operation from either side of the head as well as front or back handle mounting. The 2575D weighs the same 22.9 pounds (10.4 kilograms) as its predecessor carrying the same 0-87 pounds (39.5 kilogram) payload. It features OConnor's step less ultra-smooth pan and tilt fluid drag specifically designed to deliver the ultimate control and stability necessary for film style shooting. OConnor's patented sinusoidal counterbalance system provides true accurate balance at any point in the tilt range.

 All current 2575C accessories are interchangeable on the 2575D. OConnor www.ocon.com
