Libec RH Series Video Head Overview

  • 1Description
  • 2Continuous Counterbalance
  • 3Fluid Drag System
  • 4Low Temperature Performance

Designed for compact cameras weighing up to 13 lb, the RH25D Fluid Head from Libec features a unified ball/flat mount design. The base of the tripod can fit either in a standard 75mm bowl or on a flat mount with a 3/8"-16 screw. Having both options available means you can transfer the RH25D from a tripod with a bowl mount to a flat-mount slider.

To achieve proper balance, the head includes a sliding camera plate with 1.6" of fore/aft adjustment. The screw and locating pin are moveable to orient the plate on the camera to achieve the best possible balance. Once the camera is balanced, the continuous counterbalance and pan/tilt drag controls provide a smooth action with reduced backlash and unnecessary "bouncing."

Included with the head is a PH-6B pan handle. The handle is extendable for better reach or more precise movement. The bar can be placed on the right or left side of the head by screwing it onto one of the rosettes.

Continuous Counterbalance

This fluid head is equipped with an continuously adjustable counterbalance system that can be fine-tuned to provide the correct amount of counterforce that corresponds to the weight and angle of your camera. Different cameras can be used and correct counterbalance can be set for each camera configuration.

Fluid Drag System

The fluid drag mechanism reduces backlash that can occur at the beginning or end of panning/tilting moves.

Low Temperature Performance

The RH25D is rated to be used in temperatures down to -40°F without seriously impacting the performance of the fluid drag system.

question

Why is there so little information/reviews/video uploads of this head, out there on the internet? - This is a hard model (whole RH range) to research. Looking at Libec's site, it could be that the RH is the RS, is that the case? H being 'Head' but S being part of a kit.
Asked by: Clive
Hello, sorry for any inconveniences, the RS Series tripod systems have been revised a couple of times now. The original RS Series consisted of RS-250, RS-250M, RS-350, RS-350m, RS-450, and RS-450M. When the series was revised, Libec added an R in the models, i.e. RS-250R, RS-250RM, same rule applied for the heads, originally RH25 to RH25R. Recently in 2015 the RS Series was newly designed with a dual head design, (75mm and flat base with 3/8 inch threads for slider dollies and other equipment). Libec Changed the RS Series once again with a D in the models I.e. RS-250D, RS-250DM, same with the heads, from RH25R to RH25D. Also, you are correct, the S in the RS stands for Systems, the H in RH stands for Head. If you are interested in knowing availability, please contact the Libec office at 310-787-9400. A current list of models are found on our site <a href= http://www.libecsales.com. target= _blank >www.libecsales.com.</a> In case you are interested, we do have a few 2nd generation R revised RS Series models left in stock, thanks.

question

Is this sold as a flat head or does it come with a 75mm half-bowl? Does it require a minimum load of 10lbs for optimal performance?
Asked by: Claude
Claude, this is actually both. It's pretty great. It's a 75mm half-bowl and instead of having the bold sticking out they've put the bolt on the tie down instead so you can use it on flat base tripods as well as 75mm half-bowl tripods. I bought it to use on my Kessler Cineslider as a flat base and then to go on my 75mm half-bowl tripod as well. Hope this helps.
