I had not heard much about Libec gear until close to NAB. I’m very interested in seeing their gear here at the show. One of their new offerings is the Libec ALLEX System. This is a Tripod/Head/Slider kit that makes using a tripod and slider together or separately a breeze. Also take note of how the camera is removed from the tripod. Thats HOT! The ALLEX System will be available in Augest of this year. Check out the video and details below.
How It Works
The ALLEX system includes three components, ALLEX H, a 75mm dual head, ALLEX T, a 75mm ball diameter lightweight (2.5kg/5.5lb) tripod and ALLEX S, a 30” slider. By the integration of all three components, The ALLEX system makes dynamic camera moves possible at a surprisingly affordable price.
Tripod Legs (ALLEX T)
The ALLEX T tripod provides an ultra light but incredibly rigid base for the ball head and slider, courtesy of Libec’s exclusive spike and leg stopper technology. The high rigidity of the tripod is inherited from Libec’s pro level camera support systems. Perfect stability is provided by a rigid extendable brace and spikes integrated with foot pads, making it a superior piece of camera support for any shooting location.
Tripod Head (ALLEX H)
The dual-head lightweight (1.3kg/2.9lb) ALLEX H features a 75mm ball diameter and flat base, allowing it to mount easily on the slider platform of the ALLEX S slider. The ball head can handle cameras up to 9 pounds in weight, has a one touch attachment that allows a plus or minus 40mm sliding range. The LED bubble allows for easy leveling.
Slider (ALLEX S)
The ALLEX S offers shooters smooth and delicate control in a robust slider. Eight high performance bearings applied with special grease developed by Libec for its pro line make up the slide platform. The ball bearings are positioned on the rail top and at an angle on the underside. This “sandwiching” of the rail prevents any “wobble” or vibration, resulting in pro level camera moves.
