As part of the RS series, Libec's RS-450 Professional 2-Stage Aluminum Tripod System with Ground Spreader introduces its "free plus 3 steps" drag system along with a counterbalance range of 4.5 to 10.5kg (maximum payload of 12kg). This makes for a smooth, wobble-free image whether panning, tilting, or stopping movement on a dime. A low temperature rating of -40° C/F plus LED bubble illumination lets you continue shooting into the cold of night.

Ideal Counterbalance
Complete counterbalance makes it possible to stop the camera precisely at any tilt angle within the range of 4 to 10kg weight on board (height of center of gravity at 100mm).
New Drag System
The new drag system makes a quantum leap in operability when panning or tilting. There is also a significant reduction in wobbling of the image that occurs at the start of the pan as well as backlash at the end of the pan.
Low Temperature Characteristics
The RS-450 can operate in severely cold areas with a low temperature rating of -40° F/C. Torque performance is maintained in the most extreme climates.
Premium Functionality
Drag mode: Free plus 3 steps. Select torque strength based on your shooting preferences.

LED level illumination: Ideal for night time shoots.

Outstanding Rigidity
The RS-450 eliminates wobbling of the camera image caused by tripod twisting.
