The OConnor Ultimate 1030D Fluid Head features interchangeable camera platforms, and comes with a sidelock platform and sliding baseplate as standard. The sidelock platform allows you to mount and remove the camera by lifting straight off the head and not having to slide it in from the back. The fluid head is able to tilt 90 degrees forward and back, allowing you to tilt the camera straight down and then straight up, all in the same shot. The camera also features independent drag controls and locks for both the pan and tilt. The included 100mm ball base is removable and can be replaced with other available bases. The head features an integrated bubble level for quick leveling confirmation, and the level is illuminated for times you are working in dim light conditions. The included pan handle can be attached to either side of the the fluid head utilizing the mounting rosette on either side of the head. The 1030D also features standard front box mounting points compatible with available front box brackets, and provisions for attaching an eyepiece leveler or other attachments to the head.

The fluid head supports cameras and accessories up to 30 lbs at a C.O.G. of 6 inches. The 1030D provides a 90 degree forward and back tilt with ball leveling and front box mounting points that allow you to attach an available front box with front box brackets for high end acccessory mounting features. 

The 30L Carbon Fiber Tripod System features a removable mid level spreader, 3 rubber feet and 2-stage carbon fiber tripod legs. The system is compatible with tripod heads that have a 100mm ball such as OConnor's 1030D and 1030DS. The legs can support up to 209 lbs of weight and extend from 22 to 61.8". 

The mid level spreader and individually adjustable legs allow you to set up the tripod on rocky, uneven terrain and even on stairs, and the mid level spreader design avoids the stresses and instability that a ground spreader can cause when working on uneven surfaces. When working situations require it, the spreader can be detached individually from each leg and the dual spikes at the end of each leg provide a solid anchor point when working on soft ground. The removable rubber feet snap onto the dual spikes for working inside or on slippery surfaces.

The legs feature lever locks for quick and secure clamping. A built-in leg clip on an elastic cord pulls out and wraps around the legs to secure them together when the legs are not in use, then retracts out of the way when the legs are in use. The legs also incorporate a carry handle into its design. These features simplify transporting the 30L tripod system to or from a shoot.
