E-Image EG03A2 overview

  • 1Description

The E-Image 2-Stage Aluminum Tripod with GH03 Head supports cameras and accessories weighing up to 11 pounds. The head and legs feature a 75mm ball/bowl, which provides a wide platform. The legs are made from aluminum and feature three sections with mono-lock leg locks. The mono-lock design allows you to lock and unlock each leg section using only one rotating locking lever. The tripod legs are height-adjustable from 26 to 61".

The GH03 head features an Easy Lock baseplate system that combines the balance adjustment of a sliding baseplate with the ease of a quick release system. Pan drag and counterbalance are both fixed, while tilt drag is adjustable via a dial on the side of the head. The head features a built in 1/4"-20 accessory socket for available monitor support arms or other accessory items. A padded carry bag with a shoulder strap is included.

The Easy Lock baseplate provides the balance adjustment range associated with a sliding balance plate while combining the ease of a quick release, as you can pop the camera (on the Easy Lock plate) into the top of the fluid head without having to support the camera while lining up the plate with the head. Easy to pop in, it stays secure until you release it, and you maintain the sliding balance adjustments.
The 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 bending down to open a bottom leg lock.
The legs feature dual-spiked feet that provide solid purchase in soft surfaces when the legs are spread wide or extended to full height.
The rubber feet attach to the spiked feet for working on delicate or hard surfaces.
The Easy Lock camera plate features a guided sled with a locating pin, and supports both 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 camera tie-down screws (included).

    2-Stage Aluminum Tripod with GH03 Head is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 76.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bestt For The Price It's very light and manageable, but stability can be a tipsy. Just make sure the legs are spread out far enough to keep it steady. The fluid head feels nice, but it's kind of jerky at times. Example, you have your system all locked down, haven't panned a shot for awhile. Then you need to move suddenly. You release the tension and drag knob. The first move from your existing static position might hang up on you causing a Jerk like motion on camera. Grant it, this is what I've experienced out of the box on one event. This may go away once it's broke in after a few jobs. Otherwise I like the one twist lock per leg, and the portability of it as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this tripod!!! I was looking for a tripod that is sturdy, but easy to move and adjust, and I found it here! With one easy turn of only one knob, I get one leg to fully extend... So 3 knobs, 3 turns, and I get 3 fully extended legs, without having to bend over and mess with like 9 different knobs! I work really fast paced shoots, and the quicker I can get myself in position, the better, and now I have that advantage! Good flow too!!! The case is solid... Overall great investment, esp for the money... I think I got a deal!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an underdog! I stumbled upon this tripod while testing some out in person at the BH store in New York. I was looking for a rigid, well built design that would set up and be modified extremely fast (I shoot documentary stuff). This was the only tripod I found that has two extensions on each legs which are BOTH controlled with a single knob. This allows me to raise/lower the legs with only having to twist one knob. And when it's locked down, it ain't moving. The head is a really good head, especially for the price of the whole rig. You can't beat it. That being said, I had my eyes set on the manfrotto 504HD head from the start, which I ended up putting on these legs. I wish they sold the legs by themselves, but oh well...It also comes with a super-duty bag with thick padding. It too is very well built. You can tell these guys put some thought into the whole package.Again, this tripod is an underdog. I've never heard of it and for the price you can't get a better deal. Thanks guys.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressed After dealing with lousy fifty and hundred dollar tripods I moved up to Ravelli Pro and Davis and Stanford Pro Vista and have been pretty happy with them. When this E-Image tripod went on sale at B&H I decided to give it a shot and I am glad I did. It is a step up from the previous ones mentioned and an outstanding value. No, it's not the same as one costing three grand but I wouldn't hesitate to buy another. The height is great, the 1/4-20 hole for mounting a monitor is nice, the unique way of adjusting all three legs at once is nice, the counter balance head is nice, the build quality is nice and the price is great. The only thing I wish it had were two pan arms. A second is available sold seperately. The carry bag is nice also. Unless you are in the market for one of those really expensive tripods I would recommend this one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Entry Level But Worth Every Penny With my adventure into a Sony A7 I searched for an entry level fluid head and tripod for both stills and video work. With a modest budget, I can honestly say this tripod and the included GH03 head is an exceptional bang for the bucks. Even though GH06 and above heads have more bells and whistles, for an enthusiast this rock solid performing combination quickly exceeded my expectations during an action video. I know for double the money one gets more magic from the same tripod, but for $ all of the basic needs are addressed with quality and functionality at a reasonable price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from wonderful tripod! This thing is superb. I've used it to shoot weddings and fan films, but bought it primarily for my livestreaming video production business. The pan and tilt are smooth as can be, and while the pan isn't variable, the tilt is. It's variance doesn't seem to be all that huge, you turn it all the way up or down and the drag doesn't seem to change very much, but despite that it's a nice feature to have, especially in this price range. And the pan is especially nice -- enough drag to be smooth while still allowing for fast whip pans if need be. I plan on buying a second one. I took off one star for two reasons: 1) the middle of the sticks can pop loose from its rail if man-handled, and it takes a lot of effort to pop it back into place. 2) the fish hook. This thing is held in place by hopes and dreams and not much else. It's not a question of if it breaks off, but when. Mine only lasted to my third time using it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I highly recommend this Tripod system In todays budget conscious world, it's hard to find solid products at a cost effective rate. I recently moved to a Mirrorless DSLR (Fuji X-T2) and added an Atomos Ninja Flame. I needed a moderate weight tripod that didn't cost as much as a car payment and could handle the weight of my system. My B&H consultant recommended this tripod system and I purchased it. To my surprise this system is well made and versatile for my needs. If your trying to get the Best Bang for your Dollar this system is a hidden treasure.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Almost a Great Product Except it is Unusable for Video I have purchased this product and only used it 4 times. It is almost an outstanding product except for couple issues which makes it useless for video. In the B&H ad it says With variable fluid drag on both pan and tilt, you can adjust the fluid head to suit your shooting style or the needs of the shot. Unfortunately there is only variable fluid drag adjustment on tilt and is not variable on pan. To make matters worse upon purchasing the tripod in February the fluid drag was notably less than tilt even when tilt is set at the lowest setting. I have not used the tripod in months and I just used it again in the summer heat of about 85 degrees F and there is only a slight amount of pan fluid drag compared to tilt fluid drag of which is a number of times more. The difference is so extreme it is useless for video since it is so easy by error to pan it while attempt to tilt. When I use long lenses such as 400mm and 1250mm I use a rubber band on the pan arm but it is impossible to gently tilt without it panning. Using the pan lock as a brake does not work do to high linear brake away friction. It is so unfortunate they do not have pan fluid drag adjustment. I went back to using my 10 year old Velbon leaking PH-368 tripod head and tripod of which results in much better video do to adjustable and comparable tilt and pan viscous fluid drag. I contacted B&H and since it is beyond exchange time they said to contact the E-Image company for warranty. I emailed E-Image and never heard back. If I had to send the product to China for warranty I won't do anyway due to lack of recourse if I never get it back. So now the question is can I disassemble it and increase the pan fluid drag without screwing it up? Another issue is the counter balance spring is not preset to place the sliding plate mount level but rather it measures angled up at about 20 degrees. This can be corrected by sliding the camera plate all they way forward except if the lens and camera combination is too light with the plate all the way forward it still tilts upward. A very minor issue is the spring loaded hook fell off though it does not matter since I never used it anyway.
