Amazing Device!

I use it to hold a softbox in my product photography studio. It is very easy to adjust and lock it back into position.

I'm not using it with a tripod as I'm trying it with a spotting scope for a shooting bench

Articulating Extension Arm

By

from Austin, TX  -  Semi-Pro Photographer

I bought the Manfrotto Variable Friction (Articulating) Arm to attach to my Vanguard Multi Mount Tripod boom arm so that I can mount flash units on either side of the camera position, to provide multi-directional lighting on macro subjects. I believe it is also durable enough to mount a camera and extend it beyond the reach of the multi mount boom arm (assuming the use of counter-weights). With a super clamp it can be attached to other objects at the scene for lighting, or reflector support.

Versitile tool

By

from Atlanta, GA  -  Pro Photographer

The Variable Friction Arm allows the positioning of equipment in what might otherwise be inconvenient or impossible places. By attaching the arm to clamps (sold separately), the photographer is able to place equipment attached to poles, railings, door frames, edges of tables... basically anything you can clamp onto! Can be used for remote cameras, strobes, etc.

Questions about this item:

Robert P  What is the best way to mount this product to a tripod, for use with a DSLR?
MARK G  I do not use the use the magic arm to mount a camera. I use it to mount light heads, small strobes or lighting modifiers. I use some sort of clamp to attach to a wall, shelf, pipe or a light stand...then a combination of knuckles (grip heads) and pins. It functions like an articulated C stand extension arm for me. If I needed to mount a camera onto a magic arm and put the magic arm somewhere...I would use a C stand or some other sturdy but moveable stand instead of a tripod. Cannot see how a magic arm fixes to a tripod in a reliable weight bearing way. I know some tripods have horizontal extension arms...that fit the center column...that might work. Sorry this is no help
