      Comments about Gitzo G-535 Geared Lateral Side Arm for Studex Tripods:

      Excellent quality just like my Gitzo tripod.
      Aluminum bracket is plenty strong without excess weight.
      Clamp works fine, just like the tripod. Two fingers enough to tighten.
      The handle articulates to tuck out of the way so it has to be positioned a certain way to work. Once properly positioned, it works fine.
      Hook seems to be carried over from the column, not designed for a lateral arm. So just hang the bag from the end of the arm instead of the hook.
      Be advised the arm is aluminum, not carbon fiber, probably because gear notches have to be cut into the arm.

          Comments about Gitzo G-535 Geared Lateral Side Arm for Studex Tripods:

          I bought this lateral arm to replace a Feisol lateral arm that was not adequate for my tabletop macro work. If you've been discouraged from considering the Gitzo lateral arm because of the one-and-only review, a very negative one, you might want to reconsider. Read on.

          FIRST REVIEWER: "Not up to Gitzo normal quality". I disagree. See list of my Gitzo items in the last paragraph.

          FIRST REVIEWER: "The L shape bracket isn't strong enough to support heavy setup." The bracket is more than adequate for supporting the lateral arm when I have attached to the arm the large and heavy (almost 2 lb) Gitzo GH3750QR off-center ball head, and attached to the ball head the Novoflex Castel Q focusing rack (about 2 lb also), and attached to the focusing rack a Nikon D3200 camera (about 0.5 lb) with a Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR II Zoom Lens (1.2 lb), for a total weight of over 5 lb.

          FIRST REVIEWER: "Gear lever difficult to operate." I don't find it difficult at all.

          FIRST REVIEWER: "The locking ring take a lot of force to securely lock down. (At least 5 time as much when compare to a Gitzo leg)". In my experience, the locking ring works easily and does a good job.

          FIRST REVIEWER: "Counter weight hook not well design and may let the sand bag to slip out." I use a Baby-Boa 5-lb sand bag. Firmly in place.

          MY EQUIPMENT: In addition to the equipment I mentioned above, I use a Gitzo GT3320BS tabletop tripod and a Gitzo GS3311S rapid column.
