          Comments about Manfrotto 143BKT Camera Platform for Magic Arm:

          Saw this and immediately recognized it as part of my Manfrotto 233B Camera Flash Bracket. Like the 233B (which is a great piece of equiptment by the way) it's all metal, and for the price I had to buy it. Along with the Magic Arm it will definitely come in handy and I know I can jury rig this by itself in numerous ways. It's metal, it's made by Manfrotto and it's cheap. ($5 cheaper than anywhere else on the web if you check).

              Replaced the camera platform on all my older Magic Arms, now they are like new!
              After use the pads were missing and screws needed updating on my older Arms.

              Comments about Manfrotto 143BKT Camera Platform for Magic Arm:

              I use this platform to hold my D-600 attached to a magic arm behind the glass of a basketball backboard. This holds the camera firmly without fear of it crashing to the floor. The only negative is the tightening bolt and wheel. They are hard to tighten firmly without using a tool; and to loosen.

                  Comments about Manfrotto 143BKT Camera Platform for Magic Arm:

                  I love the magic arm from Manfrotto. It has so many uses. This camera platform works on both versions of the currently available arm (the 143 and 244). In combination with the magic arm and the super clamp I can use this in places where tripods are not allowed (thanks to Scott Kelby for pointing this out and prompting my purchase of this camera platform). It is very well made. I debated getting the version that would let me use the RC2 quick release plate, but I couldn't justify the price difference, plus it looks like that one is actually permanently attached to a magic arm which reduces the utility of the arm in my eyes. Maybe if I save up some extra cash I invest in one of those as well, but in the mean time I am plenty happy with this platform when partnered with the magic arm and super clamp.

                        I got this to pair it with the magic arm. I didn't want all the items that came with a magic arm kit so I purchased this separately.

                          I have been trying for the longest time to get a piece of hardware that would connect my Photoflex Octodome XS, a monopod, Pocket Wizard TT5, and Canon 430 EXII. This did the job solidly. (although the flash sits at a 45 degree angle, which I'm ok with)

                          No more dealing with Photoflex's flimsy bracket, just a solid mount with nothing coming loose.

                          This is a very handy compliment for the Magic Arm. I plan to use the super clamp, the Magic Arm and this platform to support a Nikon D700 behind the backboard during basketball pratice. I need to become more confident it will support the D700 before shooting a game. I used this combination in my home studio, and it proved to be very sturdy and strong enough to hold the Nikon D3 using the Magic arm and super clamp.

                                    This is a must have for the Magic Arm, and the price is right. There aren't many things you can by for [$]. I am currently using this to secure a monitor, but I plan on using it for a small POV camera.

                                      I use this for many applications, but most often to support an 8 inch field monitor on video shoots. Its supported by a manfrotto arm off my tripod.

                                      A no thrills item that works as advertised.

                                                I use this product with a Manfrotto Laptop Platform. Without it, the platform would be useless.

                                                  I used this to mount a camera and a magic arm to a basketball goal to get a different angle of view during a basketball tournament. I works great. I am looking forward to other applications for a remote camera.

                                                    When the cameras must be "invible": It's a very god product to use with many small cameras using in places with magic arms.
