Combining a fluid head with a set of carbon fiber tripod legs, the E-Image GH06 Head with 2-Stage Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs supports cameras and accessories weighing up to 13 pounds. The head and legs feature a 75mm ball/bowl, which provides a wide support platform for your camera. The legs are made from carbon fiber and 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 extends to a height of 73" and collapses down as low as 32.5" using the built-in mid-level spreader.

The GH06 head features an Easy Lock Baseplate system that combines the balance adjustment of a sliding baseplate with the ease of a quick release system. It provides five counterbalance settings (plus a zero setting for no counterbalance) that helps the fluid head support loads up to 13 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 a shoulder strap.

The Easy Lock baseplate provides the balance adjustment range associated with a sliding balance plate but combines 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.
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 your back from having to bend down to open a bottom lock to raise the legs.
The legs feature dual spiked feet that provide solid purchase in soft surfaces when the legs are spread wide or extended to full height.
Removable rubber feet attach to the spiked feet for working on delicate or hard surfaces.
The Easy Lock camera plate features a guided sled with locating pin, and supports both 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 camera tie-down screws (included).

    GH06 Head with 2-Stage Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great for me Sticks and head both worked great for me! My camera doesn't weigh a lot, but I wanted the EG06C2 for the drag so I could smooth out my movements some. The spreader is handy, and I love only needing one lock for each leg.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Possible design flaw & What happend to the advertised bag? I have a sony a7sii ( I know it's a bit small for this tripod) but I am planning on getting the ursa mini. So I figured I would use this tripod with my sony until I purchased the ursa mini. First off, the bag that it came with is not the one advertised! I specifically choose this tripod over the Ikan EG03A2 E-Image Two Stage Aluminum Tripod Legs with GH03 Head (B&H # EIEG03A2 MFR # EG03A2) because I wanted the nicer bag plus the carbon fiber sticks. Too bad, you will receive the bag advertised on the GH03 page.Then there is the design flaw (pics attached) which has to do with the sliding plate / lock. The lever on the lock slightly raises above the base plate's profile when tightening, which will not allow you to center the camera on the sliding plate (the lever is obstructed from tightening when it hits the camera base). I was still able to use the tripod by sliding the camera forward on the plate and then tightening the lock. Now the tripod is front heavy, and what about when I get my ursa mini (if it ever comes out) I wont be able to secure it. Maybe I can get a quick release plate but wont be sure if it will clear either. Possible solution would be to replace the lock with one without a handle like the one on my ace tripod (pic).The Variable fluid head is great, but the PAN 3 stage adjuster is of bad quality. It does not line up directly with the numbers and feels cheap. Although, once you are in a stage (0,1,2,3) it is really smooth. Tilt is perfect, counter balance as well, but I will note there is very little difference in drag when going from 2 to 3 (both pan and tilt) compared to the other levels.The ball head, when loosened to adjust, is very TOP heavy compared to other ball heads. Be careful when adjusting with a full rig, as it will be unstable.The sticks are awesome. Really feeling the mono lock system. And the rubber feet are of pro quality.The Pan handle is nice and it extends / telescopes quite a bit.Overall this tripod is great minus the sliding plate issue. I would have given it 4 stars if the sliding plate wasn't an issue for me. I will be heading to the hardware store to try and find a screw that can replace the poorly designed one, but if I can't, I will be returning this item.
