Libec announces that due to popular demand the company will offer the TH-X H flat base/65mm video head of their TH-X high spec entry level tripod system as an individual model.
The TH-X H head from Libec is a fluid head for today’s 4K UHD/HD/DV camcorders and DSLR cameras, a lightweight and stable solution available from Libec in June.
The Libec TH-X H is the new entry level high-spec fluid head from the company. It is designed with a Dual base structure with a 3/8” screw hole compatible with video tripods, photo tripods, monopods, sliders, skater dollies, and other equipment with 3/8” screws, making this dual head a multi-functional film tool in a variety of shooting environments.
Able to support payloads up to 4kg/9lbs, the TH-X H head features a built-in counterbalance for precise camera balance operations allowing users to enjoy professional pan & tilt movements on photo/video shoots.
The head is equipped with a one touch attach/release mechanism, the sliding plate slides +/-30mm/1.2” front to rear for swift camera plate adjustments. The TH-X sliding plate includes a 1/4″ screw with video pin and allows you to easily adjust your equipment’s center of gravity to balance the weight of the camera. As an added benefit, the sliding camera plate is compatible with Manfrotto and Sachtler heads, allowing users to quickly interchange shots between other heads.
The pan lock, tilt lock, and sliding plate lock are all strategically located on the left hand side of the head for quick & easy setups and adjustments while holding the camera and operating the head with your right hand. The system is also lightweight and versatile, with a reduced weight of only 1kg/2.2lb including the pan handle and bowl clamp that allows you to attach the head to a 65mm bowl tripod.
The TH-X has two pan handle rosettes, one on each side of the head, allowing you to place an additional pan handle for increased control, or attaching an AS-7K articulating support arm to mount other video equipment such as a monitor, resulting in higher-quality shots. The head is equipped with a bubble level and has a tilt angle of +90° / -80°.
Made for today’s 4K UHD/HD/DV camcorders and DSLR cameras, adds Libec, “it is great for all types of photo/video/DSLR shoots including home videos, documentaries, corporate assignments, weddings & events, nature, sports and journalist newsgatherings.”
