          Comments about Manfrotto 131D Side Arm - for Tripods (Chrome):

          I needed this for some overhead shots and was impressed with the durable quality at a great price. I do recommend adding a sandbag to your tripod to keep the tripod stable.

          Great product!

            Comments about Manfrotto 131D Side Arm - for Tripods (Chrome):

            I mount this arm on my tripod so that I can shoot parallel to the ground without having the tripod legs in the image. The arm attaches to the tripod solidly and, for the weight of my tripod head and camera (a Panasonic m4/3's,) is very stable.

                Comments about Manfrotto 131D Side Arm - for Tripods (Chrome):

                I use this product for over-table work to take pictures for items to be placed for sale on the internet or for insurance companies. It definately helps me to get more "reach" and not to photograph the table legs. Some items cannot be photographed with just a tripod.
                I also catalog my items for insurance value and this has helped me. I put a weight of 5 lbs on the opposite end of the camera and that is more than enough weight for what is needed.
                I would be nice if the company would have some type of counter-weight.

                  Sturdy build, the only downside is that when fully extended, there is still considerable shake.
