The EG05A2 is a great tripod kit for those looking for a simple system to support a medium-weight rig. The GH05 fluid video head and GA752 tiered tripod legs make for a light and simple combo capable of supporting a moderate load wherever you need to set up.
GH05 Fluid Head
The GH05 Fluid Video Head has a recommended payload of 17 lbs., includes a GB2 pan handle and GP1 quick release plate, and fits into a 75mm bowl. Pan and Tilt drag are installed and fixed, and the counterbalance can be set to one of three different levels (0-2) via the dial on the back of the head. You get two rosettes for mounting pan handles, allowing you to mount the included handle on either side of the head or mount 2 handles simultaneously for extra control.
The GA752 tiered video tripod legs can hold a whopping 88 lbs. and utilize a convenient mono-lock system that allows you to lock and unlock both stages of each extendable leg with one motion. Each set of legs includes a removable GS-01 mid-level spreader and a set of F3 rubber feet. The feet are easily removable to reveal spikes that allow you to set up your shot on soft ground. Finally, the GA752 is topped off with a 75mm bowl for light-to-medium weight video tripod heads.
