Leofoto LH-25 Review

The LH-25 is a compact ball head from Leofoto.  It is designed to be paired with ultralight setups such tabletop tripods and the very smallest and lightest of full size tripods.  It has to be noted that the LH-25 is basically a copy of the venerable RRS BH-25 that has performed so well.  If you are looking to a head that is just as good but cheaper, this isn’t it.  It is both a little bit heavier and a little less stiff than the BH-25.  The LH-25 is a very decent head though and shouldn’t be written off outright.
