This Libec RH25R Pan and Tilt Fluid Head is an advanced fluid head with upgraded functions. The variable counterbalance system, for instance, allows the RH25R to accommodate many different types of video cameras, including handheld/semi-shoulder HDV, XDCAM EX, P2HDm AVCHD, and DSLR cameras.

It also provides ideal counterbalance, a superb drag system that reduces wobbling when panning and backlash at the end of panning, and extreme low-temperature characteristics down to -40°F. It can handle a payload of up to 13 lb (6 kg), with a counterbalance range of 4 to 11 lb (1.8 to 5 kg). An extendable panhandle with rubber grips is included for precise camera movements. In addition, it's equipped with an LED bubble level for easy level adjustments in the dark. The RH25R weighs just 5.5 lb (2.5 kg).

      Comments about Libec RH25R Pan and Tilt Fluid Head:

      I upgraded to this head from the Libec LX7 because my camera operators were having a hard time keeping their shot smooth. This head adds 2 steps of resistance control and adjustable counterbalance so now things are much smoother. I use this for videoing our church's services. My only negative about this head is that it only has two steps of resistance.
