Fotopro E-6H Reviews

works fine for my purposes....but

By Thomas
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2021-06-22

The upper L bracket is useless for me when I wish to mount my camera to the gimbal head (for astrophotography). There isn't enough space between the detachable L bracket brace and arca-swiss mount for the camera body (Olympus EM1.3). I just remove the L bracket altogether and mount the camera sideways on the main gimbal body.... with a cheese plate and a couple of shims this arrangement works fine for panarama pics too. For my big lens (Oly 150-400mm) or any other lens with the mounting ring, I just mount the lens to the main bracket directly and use the lens ring to achieve verticle/horizontal twisting action.... I could use the L bracket here no problem....but why bother, the rig is lighter without it. Hence, I have simply discarded the L bracket (into a storage bin) and do field work with the main gimbal head body. So, I like the gimbal, but I found the L bracket to be useless.

Stated Weight Inaccurate

I just received this item and can confirm the weight stated here is inaccurate. This model actually weighs 850 g (just under 2 lb), not 1.54 lb/700 g as stated on this website. Still lightweight for a gimbal system, easy to operate. There is an information card in the zippered pouch of the item's case, and I was able to quickly figure out operation of all knobs. A couple of the knobs have an indented press button you have to depress to fully turn the knob. You can remove the telephoto lens rest to attach a camera with an L-bracket for landscape shots.

Remarkable gimbal head. New concept. I like them. I should buy kit, tripod and gimbal together. Unfortunately, it is not possible to buy tripod without gimbal head.

Amazing Design Choices

By Kenneth
Rated 5 out of 5

Once I started working with it I was struck by the simple elegance and efficiency of this remarkable bit of kit. I alternate between BIF and landscape and have frequently been frustrated by not being able to use my tripod and go back and forth between the two modes without having to do a swap between heads, or having to handhold one depending on whether a gimbal or ball head was mounted when I left the house. The quick release buttons to adjust angle in the field seemed a bit gimmicky but actually is proving quite practical in use. Construction is as elegant as the design. It's light, but seems more than sturdy enough (though time will test that), and the knobs are big and knurled enough to function with gloves on. In all very pleased.

nice gimbal, my lens was not good fit

By Murray

had to wait three months before this was in stock. when it arrived, the detail and precise workmanship were impressive. however, my main purpose in ordering was to find alternative to my large wimberly gimbal. unfortunately, my 600mm f/4 nikkor with d500 body, did not fit well when mounted with the cradle. the lens was rubbing against the gimbal frame. the detailed instructions with the E-6H mentions this, but I did not learn for sure until I tested with my actual lens snd body. I requested a return from B&H and they promptly sent me a RMA.

Smooth - Fast - BIF or Landscape-studio

This has to be one of the best purchases of gear I have made for my photography adventures. Whether I use if for birds in flight or landscape, it is just a simple change. It is extremely well built and the extra locking features make accidents a thing of the past. If you need a gimbal this is the one.

Great Gimbal

The Gimbal works great, smooth and fluid movement.

Very versatile system!

This is the most travel-friendly gimbal available since in folds up to 180o. It is made of aluminium: the tripod in the kit is carbon and leveling, not the head itself. I mounted mine on a Peak Design tripod to benefit from the leveling head and add panning. It weights just over a kilo with the handle and included rail, just over 900g with the cradle and 700 g in side mount. Just a little too much drag to give it a 5 ⭐️.

Looks like 7 adjustment knobs - are these all necessary? What do they adjust and do they get cold or are they rubberized?
Asked by: Richard
Yes, there are a lot of knobs and they all have a purpose. The top big knob locks the heads tilt. The lower big knob locks the main arm in position. Usually the arm is upright, but for storage or travel, you can invert the main arm. On the base, the medium knob is the pan lock. The smallest knob, when engaged, is an ingenious click-stop which will aid greatly when doing panoramas. On the main arm there is a knob to lock in the L bracket. You can remove the L bracket and then directly mount your camera if it has its own L bracket. On the bottom of the Fotopro L bracket is a knob for locking the Arca Swiss plate. Finally, on the L bracket is a knob that attaches the pan handle. As a former movie camera operator, the pan handle is what you need for "BIF" or following a "Bird In Flight." The knobs are metal and because when it is cold you are likely wearing gloves, their being metal should not be an issue. If you like a high degree of control I would say this head is for you.

Do I need accessories to be able to level the gimbal head?
Asked by: Songpun
The gimbal head has a level so that you can level your tripod using the bubble on the gimbal but a leveling base would be ideal to use in conjunction with this head. You can click on the link below to view; https://bhpho.to/2QEeZ43

In the picture which shows the telescope attached, I notice that that the plate orientation on the sidekick (??) has been changed from vertical to horizontal. Can this be changed?
Asked by: Anonymous
The customer has removed one of the components to allow for vertical attachment. Basically he removed the L bracket from the vertical clamp and clamped the telescope directly to that clamp with the Arca plate that is supplied.

Can I attach a Manfrotto quick release plate to the Fotopro gimbal?
Asked by: Ian
Yes, the plate of Manfrotto quick release (200 PL type) that I have can be attached to the gimbal. However, I found the gimbal tilt action is not smooth and fluid as expect even when the tile controlled screw is fully loosed.
