E-Image EG05A2 reviews

EG05A2 Two-Stage Aluminum Tripod with GH05 Head (75mm) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Steal for the Price I grabbed this tripod after months of waiting to get a fluid head on a Daily Deal day and I never have looked back. The packaging was perfect, the soft carry case is nice and durable and has paddings on the ends to protect the head. It's a little heavy for my use, but that's what you have to sacrifice. I am only using a DSLR right now and will be moving to a larger camera soon and I know it will support it no problem. I love that the adjustment of how much tension there is for the x-and-y axis. I would tell someone to buy this. I did already!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big Bang for Buck, But... I have a Manfrotto 475B with a 501HDV head, it's a rock solid workhorse but weighs a ton. Using it on location has no longer become an option since I've decide to lighten my video equipment load across the board especially after purchasing �a Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera. Even though the BMPCC is far lighter than my Canon DSLR, it's substantially rigged -monitor, audio recorder, shoulder mount, D-tap battery, handgrips and light- and weighs in at 16 lbs., so I needed a tripod that could handle the weight, but was lighter than my Manfrotto. I had previously purchased the much lighter E-Image EG05A2 Two-Stage Aluminum Tripod with the GH03 head which I really like, but the head can not handle the weight -max capacity 11 lbs.- . The features of the�GH03 head I like are: 1) The adjustable vertical pan drag. �2) The width of the head provides a very stable platform. �Most importantly, 3) The ability to quickly mount the camera rig vertically on to the head, instead of just aligning the base plate to the slide on mount.� Liking everything about the E-Image sticks I purchased the same tripod -EG05A2-, but with the GH05 head which has the greater capacity of 17lbs.. �I was really disappointed to find that the GH05 head did not have the vertical mounting feature. It seems a no brainer to include it with a higher cost/capacity head. Especially if you're going to mount heavier equipment -complex rig- on the head, the vertical mount feature of the GH03 head makes that process far easier. The GH05 head is also a 1/4" narrower than the GH03 head, it may be just as stable as the GH03, but it just doesn't appear as robust as it's lower cost sibling. Nor does the GH05 have an adjustable drag knob and the effect of the counter balance does not impress given the weight of the rig. It's clear that the GH05 head has a more robust 75mm bowl construction to accommodate the additional weight, but the loss of features -especially the vertical mount - just seems like a poor trade off for the additional weight capacity. With all that said, I am super impressed with the quality of both E-Image products, the build and materials blow away the more common brand competitors at this price point. The quick, one knob set-up is a game changer, and the carrying case is an impressive touch as well. I wish I could give E-Image 5 stars, but the aforementioned tripod head lost features prevents me from doing so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good quality at a reasonable price. A very well built tripod, with features found only at higher prices. It has a very smooth head, works like a charm mounting a Blackmagic Production Camera with full rig and battery. Tilt and pan is smooth, but has some room for improvement. A pan control would be most welcome. Bowl mount makes for a quick balance. Very nice details like telescoping handles, removable rubber feet that reveal spikes, fast deployment. The legs are super nice, very solid and surprising height range. Case seems and feels a tad cheap on the outside, but the interior makes up for it. Nice securing straps, roomy accesory pocket and soft texture. All in all very pleased with the product, it has an unbeatable price/quality ratio. It's very close in quality to similar Manfrottos at a fraction of the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BUY IT I was at first a bit skeptical about buying this product due to the lack of reviews on any site. In addition, the brand is not as reputable as Manfrotto or other brands. I was very surprised with the quality of this tripod right off the bat. There are many high-quality metal parts such as the locking handles which are surprisingly quick and easy to use. I have used the closest Manfrotto tripod to this price range and it is not even close in quality to this tripod. The arm extends and the base is so much sturdier. The only things that I can see that I see that I could potentially have a problem with in the future is not having the ability to fully loosen the drag on the horizontal axis. I have not had a problem with it yet but I can see how it might be. The other thing that I am having a problem with is the counterweight. While it is not a true counterweight, it serves to bring the camera back to level after you tilt the camera but this function, unfortunately, does not bring the camera back to level. It brings is back to a slightly tilted back position. I honestly do not use the counterweight system though so this is not a problem for me. Also, another advantage/ disadvantage is how sturdy this tripod is how sturdy the tripod is. While it is sturdy it is also extremely heavy. But if you're not looking for a travel tripod then this is the one for you. Definitely better than any other tripod at this price point.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the price Impressed with the quality for the price.� The head is not the smoothest, but I use it as a spare and backup tripod, and it has come in handy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Value for money I purchased this tripod for B&H just to do interviews. The tripod will only ever be extended halfway I find it excellent value for money. It is also fit for a reasonable heavy camera. But at fully extended I think it's not very stable. Also the pull cord at the bottom for holding the legs together in transit, did not retract when I pulled it out for the first time. So I had to cut it off, it would have been a nice feature if it worked.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Freelance/Wedding/Event videographer gives 2 thumbs up This tripod system is great for the money. This system is head and shoulders above a comparable Libec or Benro or Manfrotto system. I use pricey Vintens by day as a TV News photog and obviously this set-up doesn't compare to a $5,000 tripod, BUT for $250 this is a great set-up. I use a JVC GY-HM750 when I freelance and it weighs in around 11 pounds with battery and mic and the E-image head handles the weight well. With the tripod at medium to full height in wind it wiggles a little and if you keep your hands on the camera while at medium to full height it wiggles a little, but that's easily worked around and it still feels like a quality product. Most experienced shooters should be able keep that to a minimum. The leg-lock system is really the star in this equation. One lock per leg is incredible. The counter balance system is just okay with only two steps of balance (BUT IT ONLY COSTS $250!!!). I won't be doing any whip pans with this set-up but like I said...$250!!!! It seems like the pan and tilt drag that is built in is right in the sweet spot for smooth pans and tilts (for now...I've only used it for 2-3 days a week for 4 months so we'll see). The bag it comes with is also great for the price...not a Vinten bag or a Satchler tube, but hey it'll carry your sticks and it looks pretty sharp too. SO! with all of that being said this tripod rocks for how little it costs. If you're on the fence, I would say go for it. I haven't used any of their pricier set-ups, but I'm planning on buying one of them next year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Heavy Duty I purchased this tripod based on the max load and it has not disappointed, very sturdy with a rig of almost 16 lbs. The only complaint it the level grip underneath is maybe not quite long enough to be easy to use for people with large hands like me.
