Hello,

I would like to know if it is possible to retrofit some O'connor tripods which have a Mitchell base with a bowl (Sachtler) base ?

Thank you

Yes it is. Both the 2575 and 2060 heads can be changed between mitchell and bowl bases in a couple of minutes.

I Think he means the tripods. Not the heads. Anyway, it is very straightforward. Oconnor makes 150mm bowl and mitchell castings for their legs. It is easy to switch between them.

you could also buy an adapter plate . they don't articulate as much but saves you from switching back and forth with tools .
