“OConnor is one of those brands that you don’t need to think twice about. ”
On a recent excursion to Kenya, Ivo found himself crawling through the jungle to capture baboons in their native habitat. Despite the physical challenges trekking through the Kenyan wilderness, Ivo required camera equipment that could provide him with top notch performance no matter what situation he found himself in.
“I travel all over the world, including some incredibly challenging locations to film animals in their natural environments,” Ivo remarked. “Its a simple fact that my camera equipment gets beat up. Not only do my tools need to be rugged, they need to function perfectly wherever I take them.”
With so much time and energy invested in this trip, Ivo didn’t want to take a chance on his camera support system. He chose to use OConnor’s new 2560 Fluid Head.
“OConnor is one of those brands that you don’t need to think twice about. I chose to use the 2560 because it literally offered me everything I expect of my camera equipment when traveling: lightweight, durable, and most of all, flawless performance in the harshest environments and at the most critical moments.”
Ivo added: “Filming baboons is particularly challenging because you never know when that special moment is going to occur. Since I track these animals at a distance with long lenses, I am particularly sensitive to the ‘feel’ of my camera support system. Armed with the 2560 Fluid Head, I captured these creatures thriving in their habitat easily and efficiently. The head’s light weight allowed me to quickly maneuver on location and its continuously adjustable sinusoidal counterbalance and fluid drag ensured I had ultra smooth performance as I regularly panned my camera. I couldn’t be happier with the performance of this new head.”
The OConnor 2560 Fluid Head supports any light weight digital cinema camera and is available now.
