OConnnor 120EX

Industry leading cinematographers are turning to the OConnor 120EX head. With the smooth OConnor feel and infinitely adjustable control, this patented head is the only product on the market to balance the huge capacity range of 30 – 240 lbs (14 – 109 kg).

OConnor's fluid heads are famous for ultimate control and stability for film style shooting. With the use of EX-technology OConnor can offer the features it has become famous for while offering an additional benefit: extended capacity. With a patented stepless counterbalance mechanism at the heart of EX-technology, the 120EX can be boosted into EX-mode to achieve a whole new realm of support.

Getting more than 100%! This is the best way to describe the EX-Mode.

The 120EX head has a given payload capacity of 120 lbs (54 kg) for the ±90° tilt range. With traditional counterbalance mechanisms any payload heavier than this maximum weight can’t be balanced.

Not with the 120EX

EX fluid heads can go far beyond their maximum payload by slowly limiting tilt range as the payload is increased. The maximum payload is reached at a tilt range of ±60°, which for the 120EX is an incredible 240 lbs (109 kg) based on a 8” center of gravity
Have the freedom to create with even the largest lens: choose the 120EX.
