What is your experience with OConnor? Starting out as a photographer, to be behind a camera – any camera – and compose a shot, is an indefinable magical and spiritual feeling. I’ve been behind an OConnor for about 30 years! On a set, behind an OConnor head with my arms and hands wrapped around it, it’s a religious feeling—not a technical skill like with wheels—but a sense of freedom. When you unlock the head, it becomes part of your limbs and reacts intuitively to your sensibilities – all very spontaneously and primal.
OConnor has been the choice of professional cinematographers since the invention of the fluid head 60 years ago by founder Chad O’Connor. OConnor’s award-winning fluid heads are renowned and for their smooth feel, fluid movement and intuitive control. Tailor designed for film-style shooting, each facilitates seamless transition when changing payloads and offers stepless, ultra-smooth pan & tilt fluid drag for maximum control. In addition to the fluid heads and robust tripods, OConnor offer a growing range of camera and lens accessories engineered to support the demands of today’s challenging and precision focused camera work. The range includes follow focus systems for cine and still photo lenses, the award-winning O-Box WM mattebox, innovative O-Grip handgrip system and the Universal Baseplate.
OConnor products exceed expectations and are respected and trusted worldwide by individual users and rental houses for their reliability, longevity and toughness.
