Sebastian Wiegrtner Relies on OConnor Camera Accessories When Pressed for Time

When a shooting schedule is tight, the team must be able to depend on the camera technology more than ever. DP Sebastian Wiegrtner had exactly three days to shoot the demo film, Tumulus, which left no leeway for experimentation. Before he even started filming, he wanted to make sure he would deliver the project on schedule, so he equipped his Sony PMW-F3 with professional camera accessories by OConnor, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company. For this critical project he selected the O-Box WM Mattebox together with the O-Grips handgrips and the new O-Focus DM Follow Focus with Glow-in-the-dark Marking Disks.

OConnor to Intro New Fluid Heads, Tripod and Camera Accessories at NAB 2012

Fluid head pioneer OConnor, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company, will unveil several new offerings at the NAB Convention and Exhibition in Las Vegas April 16 to 19, 2012 in booth number C6028.

Ultimate 1030D and 1030Ds fluid heads
For the first time at NAB attendees can experience hands-on the Ultimate 1030D (30 lb/13.6kg capacity) and Ultimate 1030Ds (41 lb/18.6kg capacity) fluid heads. Designed to replace the popular Ultimate 1030HD and HDs, the new systems add sporty industrial design and features originally engineered for OConnors larger fluid heads. These include stepless, ultra-smooth pan and tilt fluid drag that provides ultimate control and stability for digital cinematography shooting. Also adapted from OConnors heavier duty heads is the Sinusoidal Counterbalance system for true, accurate balance at any point in the tilt range. Counterbalance can be adjusted by a new ergonomic crank-style control that simply pulls out of the back of the head.
