OZEN OZEN-AG-20M 100mm FLUID HEADS
OZEN OZEN-AG-20M 100mm FLUID HEADS
The OZEN OZEN-AG-20M 100mm LOAD MAX Fluid Head is a professionally designed heavy-duty fluid head that comes along with the familiar placement of pan, tilt, and counterbalance controls to easily fit into your operating style. Carefully built for fitting the needs of filmmakers that comes along with cameras and rigs that are weighing up to 61.6 lb, the 100mm ball base allows for fast leveling and provides a wide balancing platform, which is advantageous when working with long lenses. The head features a quick release plate with two 3/8"-16 threaded camera tie-down screws, and the camera platform has 2.36" of travel for balancing your camera on the head.
The nine steps of pan and tilt drag are made independent of each other and are allowing for having a precise adjustment for matching the needs of your shot. A zero setting for each axis comes providing a completely free movement for the creation of whip pans and tilts. Individual pan/tilt locks are giving you the capability of locking one axis and still operating the other at the same time. The counterbalance comes with 16 steps of adjustment, which is made for allowing you for further tuning the head for matching the shot and your operating style. A built-in illuminated bubble level is a useful tool in dim lighting conditions for quickly leveling the head. Removable pan handle rosettes on the left and right side of the head are allowing you for utilizing both included telescoping pan handles at once.
A 16-step counterbalance allows you to adjust the head for a variety of cameras and rigs weighing from 8.8 to 61.6 lb. The counterbalance system is designed to neutralize the weight of the head, so the fluid head will hold the tilt position you leave it in without having to hold it in place. When tilting, you don't have to fight the resistance of the counterbalance during a tilt move.
Pan and Tilt Drag
With nine steps and a zero setting, you can adjust the head for smooth movement when creating fast or slow moves. The dampening settings allow you to adjust your setting from shot to shot, while the stepped settings make your drag selections repeatable.
QR Plate and Balance Adjustment
The E-Z LOAD MAX QR plate supports heavier camera rigs, pops in and out of the camera platform, and does not have any sliding balance adjustment. However, the camera platform that the plate pops into has 2.36" of back and forth adjustment to aid in balancing your camera on the head. An optional baseplate or VCT system for greater balance capability is customary with larger cameras.
100mm Leveling Ball
The 100mm leveling ball makes it quick to level the head on your tripod legs or other platforms. The large platform size allows you to adjust the balance of your camera and lens and keep the center of balance within the 4" wide platform, for smoother operation without straining the head.
Removable rosettes on each side of the fluid head allow you to attach the included pan handles for two-handed control. If damaged or stripped, the rosettes can be removed and replaced with new ones.
Camera Tie-Down Mounting Screws
The head comes with one each 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 camera tie-down screw stored on the sides of the head, in addition to the two 3/8"-16 captured tie-down screws in the E-Z LOAD MAX QR plate.
