E-Image GH06 Tripod System Overview

Combining a fluid head with a set of carbon fiber tripod legs, the E-Image GH06 Head with 2-Stage Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs supports cameras and accessories weighing up to 13 pounds. The head and legs feature a 75mm ball/bowl, which provides a wide support platform for your camera. The legs are made from carbon fiber and feature three leg sections, with mono-lock leg locks. The mono-lock design allows you to lock and unlock all the sections of each leg using only one rotating locking lever. The tripod extends to a height of 73" and collapses down as low as 32.5" using the built-in mid-level spreader.

The GH06 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 five counterbalance settings (plus a zero setting for no counterbalance) that helps the fluid head support loads up to 13 pounds. With three fluid drag grades plus a zero setting on both pan and tilt, you can 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. It includes a padded carry bag with a shoulder strap.

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.
Mono-lock design allows you to lock and unlock the three sections of each leg using only one locking lever. The rotating lever provides a robust clamp mechanism that secures the legs and prevents them from slipping once locked. The single lever on each leg allows you to quickly lock the leg height without having to use two levers, making for a quicker workflow and sparing your back from having to bend down to open a bottom lock to raise the legs.
The legs feature dual spiked feet that provide solid purchase in soft surfaces when the legs are spread wide or extended to full height.
Removable rubber feet attach to the spiked feet for working on delicate or hard surfaces.
The Easy Lock camera plate features a guided sled with locating pin, and supports both 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 camera tie-down screws (included).

E-Image GH06 Tripod System Reviews

A bit heavier than I imagined but love the stability. Overall seems really nice,

Excellent value, smooth action.

I came across the E-Image while looking to replace the Sachtler FSB system I rented on the last shoot. It basically did most of what I needed at half the price. The ballhead action is remarkably smooth, it pairs well with mirrorless systems, and it handles loaded glass well. The carbon legs are light (compared to aluminium) and strong. I have yet to report any serious durability issues. As others have noted, the options are limited (handle placement), and the balance, weighting, and other functions are not always as smooth or predictable as a higher-end brand. That said, I feel this is far better value than the Ace-M series, and can handle much heavier rigs. I also really like the high-quality bag!

Feels Professional!

Not as expensive as other top brands, but it feels and works great, and is not cheap!

Best tripod I have ever owned... for half the price!

I've spent twice as much on pro tripods and have never had something as amazing as this kit. It's smooth, easy to use, lightweight, and SO much smaller than the other kits I have used. For once I have a head worthy of the term fluid. Highly recommended!

Good tripod and head, poor handle placement for video

By David

Overall, this is a fairly good tripod. It is sturdy, and the head has a good fluid motion. My primary complaint is that it only supports the handle being mounted on the right side. Given that most camera controls are on the right side, this is inconvenient, especially for video.

Works as advertised. Very smooth video head.

I purchased the EG06C2 kit to replace my old Sachtler FSB6/Speedlock 75 tripod kit which requires very costly repairs to the legs and video head. The GH06 head is just as smooth as the Sachtler FSB6 head if not more so. EG06C2 kit is perfect for my Panasonic CX350 camera. My only complaint is with the tripod bag included with the kit. The bag appears to be of an older design and seems too big and not that well padded. If the kit included one of E-Image's newer designed tripod bags I would have the the kit an overall 5-star rating.

Heavy but well built and afffordable

I've been using Manfrotto fluidheads for over a decade but needed something cheeper. This tripod is as good or better than my Manfrottos. A little heavier because of the large aluminumm build, so if you need to haul this over distances I would splurge on the carbon fiber one. Excellent fluid head with proper tension adjustments for tilt and pan (not found in cheeper models) though I wish there were more steps in the tension nob. my favorite quality is the single lock legs. No need ot fuss with a lock on each leg stage, just twist the single lock on each leg and it releases all the stages.

Punches above its weight class

I found this fluid head to work much better then it's price tag with my full URSA Mini G2 setup of 12lbs. Love the light weight legs!
