The Steadicam AIR 25 Monopod with E-Image GH03 Fluid Head Kit from B&H is an ideal combination for the videographer on the go and for places where a tripod cannot travel. With the quick height adjustment of the monopod, and the smooth fluid movements of the head, you can capture any fast-paced scene or action with ease.
Steadicam AIR 25 Monopod
Steadicam continues to innovate. What's special about the Steadicam AIR 25 Monopod is that to adjust its height you simply step on a foot pedal located on the bottom. This gives the flexibility to adjust on the spot whenever you recognize an opportunity to capture a lower or higher angle or even continuously adjust back-and-forth between the two. This is great for when capturing something like a dance performance, wildlife, sporting events or other fast-paced motion. When you push the pedal, it simultaneously holds the monopod secure on the ground while allowing you to adjust the height.
Because of their compact size and ability to be moved in all directions — including pushing in — while providing genuine stability, monopods are considered very useful camera supports in run-and-gun productions, including weddings, fashion shows, and other events. What the Steadicam AIR 25 does with the push pedal is to add an element that allows you to take advantage of nearly all opportunities that present themselves.
Made of carbon fiber, the Steadicam AIR 25 is very lightweight, at just 3.5 lb, adding even more to its versatility. And it offers a high weight capacity of 25 lb — so you can mount full-size, fully-loaded cine cameras as well as super long lenses.

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.
