E-Image EG10C2L overview

  • 1Description

The E-Image GC102 2-Stage Carbon Fiber Tripod with GH10L Head supports cameras and accessories weighing up to 22 pounds. The head and legs feature a 100mm ball/bowl, which provides a wide support platform. The legs are made from carbon fiber so they are lightweight and corrosion resistant, and they feature three leg sections with mono-lock leg locks. The mono-lock design allows you to lock and unlock all the sections of each leg using only one rotating locking lever. The tripod legs support up to 133 lb of load and are adjustable from 31 to 67". The legs feature spiked feet and come with a ground level and a mid-level spreader, as well as rubber feet to cover the spiked feet.

The GH10L head features a sliding balance plate system for attaching the camera to the head. It provides seven counter balance settings (1 to 7) that help the fluid head support loads up to 22 pounds. With three fluid drag grades plus a zero setting on both pan and tilt, you can adjust the fluid head to suit your shooting style or the needs of the shot. The head features a built in 1/4"-20 accessory socket for available monitor support arms or other accessory items. It includes a padded carry bag with shoulder strap.

Mono-lock design allows you to lock and unlock the three sections of each leg using only one locking lever. The rotating lever provides a robust clamp mechanism that secures the legs and prevents them from slipping once locked. The single lever on each leg allows you to quickly lock the leg height without having to use two levers, making for a quicker workflow and sparing you from having to bend down to open a bottom leg lock to raise the legs.
The legs feature spiked feet that provide solid purchase on soft surfaces when not using the included ground level spreader.
The ground level spreader attaches to the spiked feet for working on delicate or hard surfaces.
The included mid-level spreader allows you to work on uneven terrain such as stairs or rocks while preventing the legs from flying apart. When using the mid-level spreader, you can use the included rubber feet to protect delicate surfaces from the tripod's foot spikes.
The head incorporates a push button that illuminates the built-in bubble level. An LR41 push-button battery is included and is easily replaceable.

    E-Image EG10C2L reviews

    GC102 2-Stage Carbon Fiber Tripod with GH10L Head is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great legs, with some issues... We have a Sachtler FS8 setup we've used for years, but were looking for something a bit more beefy for our fully kitted out FS7. For the price this isn't a bad setup. Definitely better than anything Manfrotto makes at this price point. The carbon legs are great, but the ground spreader is garbage. When you fold the tripod, the spreader has a tendency to flop over and get tangled up in the rubber loops that hold it in place. The mid-level spreader (which isn't included), improves the functionality considerably. The head is the biggest issue here. It says, it will support 22lbs, which it might, but there isn't nearly enough drag for even a 5 or 6lb setup. A small DSLR rig is about the best this will handle effectively. It's hard to get a good balance between drag and spring tension as well - it's constantly tilting down. That said, compared to the Manfrotto 519 - this setup is significantly better. But, if you want something that will support a kitted out FS7, you're going to have to save a few more grand and buy a 'real' head instead.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Overpriced With an Exaggerated Value. Let's start with the good. The carbon fiber legs are great. They feel solid and the mono-lock design makes it easy and quick to set up. The ground-level spreader feels cheap and is kind of flimsy. It has a bad tendency flop up in the middle when adjusting the legs. The mid-level spreader and rubber feet are non-existent. How can you trust a company that will tell you a product has something that it doesn't? (Ikan's fault) Lastly, the head really just isn't as good as it makes itself out to be. The handle feels nice and the build quality seems to be good on the head, but there are some issues. The smallest and not so important issue starts with the illuminating bubble. It's unresponsive and wasn't working at all until I removed the batteries and reinstalled them. It tends to not work unless you hold the button and only maintains a short timer. It will not stay on by holding it. (Could be standard, but this was disappointing.) Now to the important issues. Balancing is difficult at best, the plate is small and there does not seem to be any compatible long plates available. The head slightly dips downward on the front-end and I can only make it stay even by locking the tilt. Doesn't seem reliable for heavy setups in that regard. The counterbalance seems to work okay, but both the tilt and pan are rather weak even at the highest setting. This would be great for smaller setups, but it defeats the purpose of having a 22lb. counterbalance if the drag isn't strong to operate the weight smoothly. The customer service is terrible. People occasionally have bad experiences with any company, but this is truly poor. It took 5 days of ridiculous questions and me detailing every specific part of the kit from manufacturer's website for their customer service to realize that the 3 rubber feet are not the same thing as the feet jointed into the ground-level spreader. I returned my kit and received a full refund. Thank you B&H for the great, quality customer service, unlike Ikan.
