Burbank, California: May 28, 2012—OConnor, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company introduces the 60L Carbon Fiber Tripod, a lightweight, speedy-to-deploy support with a heavy capacity to fulfill the needs of professional cinematographers who require a versatile shooting package for larger cameras.
Ideally suited for the OConnor Ultimate 2065 and 2575D 150mm ball-based fluid heads, the 60L combines the benefits of new-age materials with precision engineering to provide a support system that is lighter weight with quick setup features, yet is solid enough to carry large film and digital camera configurations.
The 60L weighs just 9 lbs (4.1 kg) and has a double extension design that can safely and stably carry payloads of up to 209 lbs (95 kg), even at its maximum height of 60.6” (154 cm). Despite its generous height range, the 60L folds down to a mere 29.9” (76 cm).
A smart, quick clamping system offers visible tripod clamp lockdown. This is coupled with a pre-set mid-level spreader to ensure secure, easy deployment in every situation, even on irregular ground. Removable rubber feet expose spikes for optimal traction and payload safety on a variety of surfaces.
The 60L is ideal for the traveling cinematographer who needs OConnor’s heavy payload capability and rock-solid performance, in a lightweight and compact tripod that can be easily transported. Whatever its location, the tripod is ready for the most challenging and innovative filming positions.
OConnor’s 60L Carbon Fiber Tripod will be on display at the upcoming Cine Gear Expo.
