Libec ALX H overview

  • 1Description

Compatible with both flat and ball-base hardware, the Libec ALX H Fluid Head is a versatile tripod head for video production. The ALX H base features a standard 75mm ball-base with a flattened area containing a standard 3/8"-16 threaded hole for mounting to standard flat-mount hardware found on compact sliders and other grip equipment. The pan and tilt fluid-drag mechanisms are fixed-strength, as is the counterbalance. The head's construction allows for a wide +90° (down)/-80° (up) tilt range. Each axis can be locked down for extra stability during stationary shots. Both sides of the tripod head feature rosettes for attaching the included pan handle on the desired side. The camera connects to the included sliding snap-in plate, which by default holds a 1/4"-20 screw and a guiding pin. A 3/8"-16 screw is included and can be stowed underneath the camera plate when not in use.

    Libec ALX H reviews

    ALX H Dual-Base Fluid Head is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but not great A lightweight and cost-effective video head. I bought it mainly because it has a 75mm half ball which fits my tripod. Perhaps the least expensive one from a reputable manufacturer. The movement is smooth. I put its smoothness on top of another Manfrotto entry-level video head that I have. However, the shell of the video head, including the plate, is made of plastic. It's not entirely secure even when locked down. But considering its price and main use, it's not a big issue. Not ideal if it's occasionally used for still photography.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for DSLR While the drag on this head is fixed, I find it perfectly suited for small cameras like the GH5 and BMPCC. Movement is buttery smooth, and the head stays put without needing to lock it after every movement. The illuminated bubble is also a great help for event shooters, where it's not always possible to control lighting conditions. This head combined with the Oben QRA-R2 quick release plate makes a perfect combo for weddings and other events.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent light weight fluid head for the price Excellent, basic fluid head. I use it with DSLR and mirrorless cameras to shoot video clips for use in slideshows I produce. The Libec ALX/ALLEX system is perfect for that type of use. I like that it's lightweight and easy to maneuver. If you get the kit with the tripod, it comes with a decent carrying case. It's great for light duty use; probably not so good for heavy duty use.
