At the Bench with Cartoni's New Master Mk2 Fluid Head

Cartoni was nice enough to stop by a few days ago with their new Master Mk2 Fluid Head, so I decided to give it a thorough once-over.

Compared to the original Master, one of the most drastic changes on the Mk2 is that while the max load capacity remains a hefty 66 pounds, it is also suitable for cameras weighing as little as 6.6 pounds. This means that one tripod head investment will work for large cinema cameras like the F65 as well as smaller rigs built around the F3, for example. Watch my video above as I detail some of the features of the Master Mk2, and as always, let me know of any questions or thoughts in the comments below!

The OConnor 2560 can be thought of as the little brother to the 2575. However, with a payload weight of up to 83 lbs it is hardly a lightweight. The 2560 has a smaller profile than the 2575, but enjoys the same functionality.
