E-Image GH03 Fluid Head with Flat Base

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).

question

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 your advertisement 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. Untrue there is only variable fluid drag adjustment on tilt and not 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 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 you I try to tilt it. 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. I went back to using my 10 year old Velbon leaking PH-368 tripod head and tripod of which results in much better video. I contacted B&H and it was beyond exchange time and they said to email the E-Image company for warranty. I emailed them and never heard back and sending a product to China for warranty I won't do to lack of recourse if I never get it back. So now the question is do you have a drawing break down for the fluid head to see if I can disassemble it to increase the fluid drag? Another issue though more minor 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.
Asked by: William B.
It is most unfortunate that you have had this negative experience. This is of course not what we at B&H wish for our customers.B&H can only offer is return or exchange on items purchased within 30 days. After that, we must suggest that you contact the manufacturer for we do not have repair facilities.

question

is the middle spreader prone to breakage? or is it completely stable even at widest point?
Asked by: Anonymous
We have not heard of any particular issues regarding breakage of the spreader. Stability would be another matter but no issues there that we know of either.

question

is it true that the legs of this tripod can hold up to 88 pounds?
Asked by: Anonymous
The GA752 legs can actually, technically, support more than 88 pounds. 88 is just the recommended payload, and what the legs are designed to hold while maintaining the most functionality and safety. We used our former product management supervisor as a gauge, and have confirmed that these legs can hold a small Asian man who weighs between 100-120 pounds without issue.

Can the ball be removed and turn this into a flathead to fit on monopods?

question

Will this tripod hold well a Konova K7 Slider (47.2 ) with a 5d mark iii?
Asked by: Gian C.
Gian, so long as your combined weight on the tripod is LESS than 11.6 lbs (5.25 kg) it should work just fine. I can't find the weight of that particular slider to be absolutely sure, but the 5D Mark II is only 860g, leaving plenty of additional weight that can be added.
