The Libec RT30B 2-Stage Aluminum Tripod Kit with Benro H8 Video Head from B&H is a video tripod system designed to support loads up to 17.6 pounds. The kit pairs the Benro 75mm-Ball H8 Video Head with a twin-leg, 2-stage aluminum tripod that offers a height range of 16" to 59.5" without the head attached. The H8 Video Head features a snap-in quick release camera plate with double safety feature for simple and secure camera mounting and an adjustable length pan bar handle. A 5-step counterbalance helps you compensate for the weight of your rig for better balancing, and the calibrated sliding top platform makes it easy to set and reset camera positioning for faster balancing. Independent 4-step pan and tilt drag settings allow for precise control over each movement. The H8 head pans 360° and offers a tilt range of -75° to 90°.

Please see the links below for more information on the components of this kit.

Note: The Libec RT30B tripod requires a separately available ground-level or mid-level spreader.

  • Libec RT30B 2-Stage Aluminum Tripod

    The Libec RT30B 2-Stage Aluminum Tripod sports an all-new design over earlier models, with an increased maximum height and a 75mm ball diameter that ensures torsional rigidity. Stability is further enhanced by the use of aluminum die casting material for the tripod's upper leg casing.

    Weighing only 5.7 lbs (2.6kg), the RT30B supports a payload of up to 55 lb (25 kg) and can extend from 16 - 59.5" (40.5 - 150.5 cm), making it ideal for small- to mid-sized HD cameras used in a range of broadcast and production situations.

  • Benro H8 Video Head

    The H8 Video Head from Benro is designed for use with 75mm bowl tripods and supports loads up to 17.6 pounds. It features a snap-in quick release camera plate with double safety feature for simple and secure camera mounting and dismounting. A four-step plus zero counterbalance helps you compensate for the weight of your rig, and the calibrated sliding top platform makes it easy to set and reset camera positioning for faster balancing.

    The H8 head pans 360° and offers a tilt range of -75° to 90°. Both the pan lock and tilt lock can be turned on or off independently and are located on the operator side of the head for easy control. 4-step pan and tilt drag settings allow for precise, independent control over each movement. An adjustable length pan bar handle is included and dual safety rosettes let you mount it on either side of the head or add a second pan bar handle for dual control.
