First Look: Libec RH25D and RH45D Dual Video Heads


During NAB 2016 show Libec – Japanese accessory manufacturer released two new video fluid heads – the RH25D and RH45D which differ mostly by they weight they can take.

In the video above shot at NAB 2016 by the guys from No Film School, Libec’s Jose Larios explains a bit about the two new heads which can work both with a 75mm ball or on a flat base (a very usefulk feature in our opinion). The main difference between the RH25D and RH45D has to do with what they can take – while the smaller RH25D can take a camera/lens combo of up to 6kg, the larger RH45D take twice as much – and the same goes to the counterbalance mechanism (up to 5kg and up to 10.5 kg respectively).
