New Sliders and Tripod Heads from Libec are Built for Versatility

Libec has come bearing two new versatile and rugged dual heads, the RH25D and RH45D.

Libec's Jose Larios tells us all about the RH25D Dual Head, which supports 13lbs and the RH45D Dual Head, which supports 26.5lbs. These heads come equipped with both a 75mm and flat base adapter (hence the name Dual Head) so you can use them on, yes, 75mm and flat base tripods. One major improvement Libec has made with the RH25D and RH45D is continuous counter balance, something their ALX H heads didn't have. The RH25D will cost around $500, while the RH45D will be $750.

Larios also showed us some of the sliders they introduced last year, the 47" S12, the 33" S8, and the 15.5" S4. The cool thing about these sliders is their modular design, because users can easily swap out piece of it to get the slider they want. For example, if you already own a Libec slider but you want a different length, you can just order new rails and switch out the legs on your existing Libec slider — you don't have to buy a whole new slider.

The Libec RH25D is pretty affordable at $449 for a fluid-head with continuous counter-balance from 4 - 11 lbs. ( a variable counter-balance is the one big thing missing from the low-cost Manfrotto video heads )

The Libec RH45D is $769 with a continuous counter-balance of 10 - 23 lbs.

I did not see the Tripod head slide independently of the slider track. The headline for this story is very misleading.
