OConnor displayed many new products at NAB 2013, including additions to their growing range of top-quality camera/lens accessories, as well as famous "OConnor feel" fluid head and tripod systems featuring the 1030D and 1030Ds – both of which offer seamless transitions from heavier to lighter payload camera setups.
Universal Rings for O-Box WM Creates Deluxe Package
The new O-Box WM Mattebox Deluxe Package introduces a new level of out-of–the-box functionality with OConnor's innovative Universal Rings. The new Universal Rings are made of a seamless, high-tech material so a single ring can now flex over a variety of lens diameters from 150mm to 55mm. Adding these new-concept rings to the popular, lightweight, two-stage mattebox creates a versatile package for today’s shooter who works with a range of lenses.
Camera Accessories Matched for Blackmagic Cinema Camera
The versatility of the OConnor Accessory family allows the Universal Camera Baseplate, O-Focus Dual Mini Follow Focus, O-Box WM Mattebox and O-Grips handgrips to line up and interface seamlessly with the Blackmagic Cinema Camera right out-of-the-box.
Support and Lens Accessories for Sony F5/F55
OConnor is meeting the challenges of support and lens accessories for Sony's F5 and F55 cameras whether they are set up with large or small lenses. Outfitted minimally with a simple prime lens and viewfinder, the cameras are in the perfect weight range for OConnor's 1030D and 1030Ds fluid heads. Built-up with large zoom lenses and cine accessories, such as the OConnor CFF-l Follow Focus, the 2575D is ideal.
For 15mm LWS cine setups the path to mounting the myriad of standard accessories available in the cine industry to the F5 and F55 cameras is no further away than OConnor's Universal Baseplate. For these smaller setups, OConnor offers the O-Focus Dual Mini (DM), a compact, double-sided direct drive follow focus system with a Cine Set configuration that utilizes the CFF-1 Studio Handwheel. For light control for compact setups, there’s OConnor's O-Box WM two-stage mattebox, with integrated handgrip interfaces. And for convenient handheld work, users can simply add on the O-Grip handles.
