As an independent photographer providing images to Japanese television stations, I own and am responsible for my camera equipment. In the last few years a lot of my business has involved golf tournaments, so I began investigating lightweight camera support gear that would be easy to carry and deploy.
I knew that I would need a well balanced camera head in order to follow the fast-moving golf balls. When capturing this sort of action, the camera has to smoothly follow the ball as it moves up in its trajectory and then very rapidly tilt down and stop without any jolts or jars as the ball drops on the green.
Fortunately I had a chance to experience the Libec head at a trade show. I quickly found that the response from the Libec head was much superior to that offered by a competing product. The price of the Libec head was also attractive, about half that of the head I had originally considered purchasing.
I’m currently using the RSP-750M system to cover volleyball and MLB reports and am very satisfied with its performance. I’ve found that the head is ideal for capturing all dynamic scenes in sporting events. Right out of the box the RSP-750M system was responsive, perfectly balanced and easy to use, providing me with confidence that I was going to get the sort of shots I needed. And the price point is also quite reasonable considering the performance and overall quality of the product.
