The Dracast E-Image EK60AAM Fluid Drag Video Head and Tripod is a video head and 2 stage tripod leg system designed for video camera systems weighing up to 17.6 pounds. The system consists of the EH60 fluid drag head, the AT7402A aluminum tripod legs with a fixed mid level spreader, one HD7060 adjustable panhandle and a soft bag for carrying the system. The head has fixed pan and tilt fluid drag for smooth camera moves, and a spring loaded counterbalance system adjustable in three steps

The included sliding balance plate attaches to your camera with either of the included 1/4"-20 or 3/8" camera tie-down screws. It then slides into the head's top plate, quickly and securely attaching your camera to the tripod. After, you can adjust the balance of the camera on the tripod head by sliding the base plate forward or backward. The sliding balance plate system features a safety release to help prevent the sliding base plate from accidentally sliding out of the tripod head.

        We finally updated our 8 year tripods and this what we bought. Great tripod to use with our Panasonic HP370s, great fluid head, and great height. This model head has a L and R rosette, perfect for us who use zoom/focus controls.

        Comments about E-Image EK60AAM Fluid Drag Video Head and Tripod:

        I own a Sachtler tripod and was looking for another for my NEX-FS100, this E-Image tripod is built strong enough, and its fluid head is really smooth, I'm very satisfied with the quality and performance of the product, just the time will tell if it's as good as Sachtler, for fraction of its price it worth it.

          Comments about E-Image EK60AAM Fluid Drag Video Head and Tripod:

          This tripod is a beast. It's much more heavy duty than the manfrotto I had been using previously, but I needed something that could easily withstand a jib/crane mounted on it. This guy didn't disappoint and is fantastic to work with. The fluid head is SUPER smooth and has 3 settings for adjusting the fluidity. The legs adjust and lock easily and the video arm works nicely. Very stable and a solid tripod, hands down.

            As soon as I pulled this E-Image EK600AAM Video Tripod out of the box it felt and looked extremely professional. After looking over the entire tripod, I was able to very easily figure out what every tension knob controlled and how to stabilize and level out the tripod head. Overall, it is a great tripod that offers a ton of professional features for an awesome affordable price.

              this tripod feels like a midrange manfrotto but at 1/2 the price and twice the weight capacity. also the cheapest tripod i've ever seen with a decent counter balance.

              This E-Image tripod is solid!
              It's weight is stable for DSLR.
              Moving smooth every direction.
              Price is reasonable.
              Only problem is that pan drag is fixed.
              Can't drag fast.
              But that doesn't bother me big.
              It comes w/ nice soft travel case which is very durable.
              Overall, this is the one!
