Snap On Snap Off Plate

The 150mm heads use a snap on snap off plate system so you can quickly remove or place your camera on the tripod.

Smooth Counterbalance System

The tripod heads use a smooth counterbalance system which Libec claims uses their own unique technology. This allows the counterbalance knob to be adjusted with a constant motion to smoothly reach the minimum and maximum power range. The foldaway knob is designed for easy and quick adjustments.

The counterbalance power level can be viewed by looking at the Counterbalance Meter. This allows users to keep an eye on their preferred counterbalance settings.

Center Tilt Lock with High Safety
