Libec RH Series Video Head Reviews

Upgraded from the Manfrotto 502

By Tedric
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2019-09-27

I upgraded from the infamous Manfrotto 502. This head blows it out of the water. Super smooth and crisp a little on the heavy side. I had to buy a manfrotto 501 pl adapter plate for it as Libec has their own plate style. I use mine with an FS5, Sony Z90, and occasionally Sony mirrorless bodies. Be mindful of the minimum weight for the counterbalance its 1.8kg/4lbs. For the smaller light weight cameras you will need to add some weight if you plan to use the heads counterbalance.

Good Fluid Head for the Money

I will admit up front that I generally like Libec products. I have a Swift Jib 50 and Remo 30 as well as a H38 fluid head and TC-70 tripod combination. I bought the RH25R to go on top of a Induro IFB 75 short tripod that I mounted to a board and then clamped to a rail overlooking our gym for our live webcasts of our basketball games. We've just done one broadcast, but I liked using RH25R as it was able to do the swift panning required of sports action, yet was smooth throughout the pan range. It holds my Sony EX3 very well and remained balanced. I would definitely recommend this fluid head.

Great Smooth Fluid Head

Smooth.......This head can handle heavy loads with ease 50+ lbs. Had a lighter head and needed an upgrade. I had good experiences with other Libec products so this one is a good fit for my RED EPIC when it's in the cinema mode. For the price you can't beat it.

Great tripod head

Works perfectly. The pan and tilt are super smooth. This is a great tripod head for the price.

Much improvement over the LX7

Date: 2013-10-02

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.

Excellent Fluid Head

By Peter

I have a RH25R that I purchased from B&H in December 2014.  I believe its the same as the RH25D.  I bought the RH25 to replace a less expensive Libec fluid head that was difficult to tilt with my camcorder setup (Panasonic HVX200A with a 7 monitor mounted on top). I am VERY pleased with the RH25.  The most difficult motion, very slow pans, are very smooth with virtually no kickback at the end.  Kickback is not noticeable in the viewfinder with the lens at wide angle.  There is only a VERY tiny amount detectable with the lens zoomed all the way and by observing a vertical line (like the edge of a wall) against a vertical reference line in the viewfinder--if viewing just the image, it would be almost impossible to see.  And this kind of kickback doesnt always occur.  You have to do very small and slow pans of only a few degrees to get it.  In normal operation I can say there isnt any kickback. Also, its not fair comparing a $400 head against a $4000 Sachtler or Vinton in regards to kickback.  No $1000 fluid head has zero kickback or perfectly smooth slow pans. The tilt mechanism is excellent and the counterbalance adjustment works very well, too.  I can get my rig to stay put when I tilt it up +-30 degrees.  You just have to adjust the camcorder position and get the balance right. As for customer support, my first Libec fluid head, an H38, developed a very tiny bump when panning very slow at a specific location.  I called up Libec and since I live in the L.A. area, I drove to the Libec Sales of America office in Torrance.  The manager set up my fluid head and it took him a while to find the tiny bump.  At which time, he pulled a new in the box H38 out and tried it out.  It panned perfectly smooth and then he gave the new one to me. Now thats professional customer service!  So I really like Libec both in terms of their products and their service.  I dont want to bad mouth other brands, but my first video tripod fluid head rig was from a very well known European brand.  It was an entry model but the pan and tilt motions were just awful, not nearly as good as the H38 and not even in the same universe as the RH25.  I think that Libec is a very overlooked and underrated company.  You wont find a better fluid head anywhere near this price point.

2-speed options for panning and tilt, both flow very smoothly for crisp, professional shots. Very easy to slide camera on/off. Very happy with purchase!

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.
