Libec’s unique balance stabilizer mechanism prevents even the slightest wobble on the image caused by the spring-back effect at a stopping tilt movement. In addition, this mechanism greatly simplifies the strict adjustment procedures needed for perfect balancing. First, turn the tilt torque dial to 1 and balance the camera lengthwise. Then, adjust the spring tension by turning the counterbalance adjustment knob. Tilt the camera, once the camera remains stationary, then the counterbalance adjustment is complete. This way, the “perfect counterbalance” is easily achieved, which ensures a stable image even when the pan handle is released from the shooter’s hands.
Generally, the spring tension gets stronger as the counterbalance adjustment knob is turned clockwise, increasing tension on the knob. This difficulty is simplified by the head’s smooth balancing system which stabilizes the turning force efficiently. The knob can be turned with constant force and offers easy and speedy adjustments.
The sealed torque unit contributes to the smooth start and stop of pan and tilt movement, and produces precise camerawork just as intended. In addition, specific silicon grease is applied to ensure ordinary pan and tilt movement at a wide temperature range from -40° C/-40° F up to +60° C/+140° F. The variable seven-step torque switch system covers remarkably wide torque range, by which an optimum torque is selectable according to every shooting conditions and circumstances.
The camera plate is attachable and detachable with just one touch, promoting speedy and easy setup.
The case is equipped with two wheels and can be pulled along by the side handle grip, which allows easy transportation on foot. Damages are prevented by the soft and hard protectors on all sides of the case which absorb impacts, while the inner strap holds the tripod firmly in place. This all-round tripod case is designed with high rigidity and can be safely transported as a check-in luggage during flight.
