E-Image GH03F overview

  • 1Description

The E-Image GH03 Fluid Head with Flat Base supports cameras and accessories weighing up to 11 pounds. 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. It provides a fixed counterbalance setting that helps the fluid head support loads up to 11 pounds and won't force you to fight the head when working with lightweight camera systems.

The variable tilt drag allows you to 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 and independent pan and tilt locks. The head incorporates a bubble level, panhandle rosettes on the left and right side of the head (one panhandle is included), and a 1/4"-20 threaded accessory socket for use with optional accessories.

The fluid head features a flat base with a 3/8"-16 threaded mounting hole. This allows you to mount it in tripod legs with a 3/8"-16 threaded mounting screw, or 1/4"-20 screw with optional adapter. You can also mount optional jib arms or camera sliders that support flat base heads.
You can mount this head to optional half-ball system to gain ball-leveling capabilities, and then quickly switch back to the flat base for situations requiring that mount.
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.
The Easy Lock camera plate features a guided sled with a retractable locating pin and supports both 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 camera tie-down screws (included).

    GH03 Fluid Head with Flat Base is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for DSLR video I use this on a tripod for DSLR and Camcorder video. And, to mount a short Glide Gear Slider. The large base plate provides a firm base for mounting a slider rail, much more stable than my photo ball head which is rated at 25lbs. And, it holds the angles well when lock down. The pan and tilt is very smooth, a huge improvement over a photo ball head. It's also built solid with cast and machined mag-alloy. No plastic. It's heavy and stable. I found no negatives about this product. It is a great product, well constructed, and performs very well in the field. Overall, for the price, it's a great value.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great head for video! This is a GREATA head for video, great drag, great counterbalance, great camera plate, holds a very good amount of weight for this price, the only thing that seemed wierd to me and even illogical is that you cannot use the same camera plate betweeb this and the halfbowl version....why is that????they are basically the exact same head the only difference is that one is flat base and the other is a half bowl base, not adding up for me. But overal if you are looking for a great head for your Dslr buy this one, you will become a fan, if you are looking a head for a slider then not so much, better a Manfroto 502 or 505 etc. I have a Manfrotto 502HD and if not for the size (needed a head to place a slider on) the I would have stayed all the way with this one, even I had the half bowl version and I needed to replaced it for the Manfrotto because of the size vs slider I ended buying this flat base version to connect the camera to the slider.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value This product was shipped direct from the Factory in TX. Great fast service from B&H.I use this on a regular photo tripod with DSLRs and a camcorder. Also, I use it to support a 2foot camera slider. It has very smooth pan and tilt, and is easy to adjust and set up. The construction is mostly cast alloy, with mat black finish. Not many plastic parts on this head. Using it to support a slider is very stable. The only negative I see is, it's hefty in size and weight. But that's expected with a fluid video head of this size. And, the heft adds to the stability which is a positive. FYI... according to the specs, it says variable pan adjustment. However, the manual says fixed pan adjustment. This head has no variable adjustment, it is fixed with a lock down lever. Nevertheless, the tilt is variable, and each has lock-down levers that will lock down the pan and tilt in less than 1/3 turn of the lever. The camera plate is designed for video rigs, not so much for stand alone DSLR. Thus, it' is awkward to mount on the bottom of the DSLR, and if you have a fat lens, the camera plate will get in the way, thus needing to mount the plate on the extreme forward end of the plate. Or if you have a riser or lens mount between the DSLR and the plate it will fit well. At any rate, I'm happy with this fluid head, it seems well constructed, very smooth operation, and is easy to deploy. The size and bulk make it very stable for what I do, and using it to support a camera slider is much more stable than my 25Lb rated photo ball head.
