Burbank, USA: April 16, 2012 – OConnor, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company, is proud to announce that its new O-Focus Dual Mini has been awarded a coveted TIPA Award. The Follow Focus System has been voted as the ‘Best DSLR Video Accessory’ by the Technical Image Press Association (TIPA).
OConnor’s O-Focus Dual Mini was announced in February and is already receiving rave reviews from users worldwide. In a statement the TIPA judges said “Follow focus devices are a must for professional and serious video making. This double sided direct drive offering from OConnor is optimized for both still and cine-style camera lenses. Each version of the 0-Focus Dual Mini units, i.e. the Photo Set and the Cine Set, has its own transmission ratio and both have low profiles to allow for large diameter lenses. The device shares the design and build quality of many OConnor CFF-1 accessories and TIPA members view it as an invaluable aid for demanding professionals.”
“This TIPA award highlights the premium quality and innovative design of the new O-Focus DM” says Steve Ward, CMO of Vitec Videocom. “We’re proud OConnor features in the list of leading brands receiving TIPA’s annual prestigious honors.”
The O-Focus DM is available now and joins OConnor’s fast growing array of lens and camera accessories, which features the CFF-1 Follow Focus and award-winning O-Box WM Mattebox and O-Grip Handgrip combination.
