4OConnor C1221-00015 Ground Spreader for Cine HD Tripod
The 120EX Fluid Head & Cine HD Mitchell Top Tripod with Ground Spreader from OConnor includes the 120EX fluid head with a payload capacity of 120 lb for the ±90° tilt range. It offers a maximum payload of 240 lb at 8" center of gravity with a ± 60° tilt range. The aluminum Cine HD tripod on its own can support payloads up to 309 lb and offers height adjustment from 33.6 to 69.2". The ground-level spreader enhances the stability of the tripod with heavy loads, providing protection for delicate floor surfaces.
OConnor C12250001 120EX Standard Film Fluid Head (Black)
The OConnor 120EX Standard Assembly C12250001 is the flagship of fluid head design. With a payload capacity of 120 lbs it is the right choice for larger format film and video cameras. This device features 90 to 90 degree tilt with a folding crank handle with numerical readout for repeatable counterbalance adjustments. This head features the EX Mode which allows extended weight capacity.
The fluid head features a counterbalance system that will keep the camera from falling forward or backward when it is tilted. With the correct counterbalance, the camera will stay where you put it, throughout the entire +/-90° tilt range.
Infinitely Adjustable True Fluid Drag
Fluid drag allows you to pan and tilt smoothly, without shake or vibration. The high viscosity fluid acts as a buffer, adding an adjustable level of resistance to the camera movement.
The fluid head employs a modular design concept that allows you to choose different mounting bases (150mm, Mitchell, Sachtler/Vinten), quick release platforms (Oconnor, 120mm Euro, Panavision Dovetail and Arriflex Plates) and handles for added flexibility.
EX fluid heads can go far beyond that maximum payload by slowly limiting tilt range as the payload is increased. With the example of the 120EX, the payload for a 90° tilt range is between 30-120 lbs (14-54 kg), but in EX mode the 120EX can counterbalance up to incredible 240 lbs (109 kg) at a tilt range of 60°; all based on a 8" center of gravity.

Hi,I'd like to add in addition that this is the only fluid head that can perfectly balance a 265lb payload at a 6 centre of gravity throughout the entire range.This is essential for 3D and I-Max configuration as well as very big 35mm Film and Alexa and 12:1 lens configurations.There can be over 1 ton of pressure on some of the components inside the head to counteract such huge torques. As a result it is very expensive head to build.Kindest Regards,Steve Turner (Product Manager - OConnor)
