    Purchased this arm to mount my 7" Lilliput monitor to my Manfrotto tripod. Works great, you will need a clamp if you are going to mount to a tripod leg.
    Holds the monitor with no wobble, very sturdy.
    I would buy again.

    I bought this to add a monitor or light to our DSLR video rig. It works pretty well but getting it locked down takes a bit more cranking than you think which can be difficult in the heat of battle. Once it's locked down, however, things are pretty solid.

    Two points of contention:
    1. The accessory shoe mount section can be a source of movement even when the arm is locked down and may require additional attention at times.

    2. I wish the lock knob was a ratcheting lever as opposed to a standard knob.

        Nice arm for a monitor, especially when used with a clamp rather than the hot shoe mount. I don't find the single-knob-loosens-all-joints feature to be intuitive, but it works fine. Nice piece of kit overall.

          The Pearstone 8.3" (21.1cm) Articulating Israeli Arm works great! I immediately attached the arm to my 7" camera monitor using the hot shoe connector and began shooting right away with my CanonTi5 DSLR. Thanks again!

          Works well. Its wild how one knob tightens or loosens the whole unit. Very versatile. Definitely needs knob to screw tight.

            Comments about Pearstone 8.3" (21.1cm) Articulating Israeli Arm:

            I recently bought a new monitor but I wanted the added length that was not achieved by the articulating arm I bought with the monitor. This was perfect for that. The only very slight downside is it is slightly looser than the one that came with the monitor but not loose enough that it can cause a problem. Great product though.

              The hallmark of a great Israeli Arm is its payload. This one gets an 'OK' on that scale. Anything more than the smallest monitor and it's done.

              Good arm for the price, It can be hard to tighten down. the rubber washer isnt glued on or at least didn't seem to be. Probably advisable to glue it down or fashion your own.

                  I had a limited need for this so I couldn't justify the expense of the popular brand names. That said, this works exactly as I expected and will likely meet my needs for some time. In the primary application, I wanted to mount and position a GoPro camera and it worked perfectly.

                  If you have a lot of applications such as mounting a 7" video display or need to use it an a regular basis, I'd bite the bullet and get the brand name product, but for occasional use, this works and the price is right.

                            Needed to put together a small virtual set for one of our high school installations. Using this item along with the Reflectmedia pop up background and lite-ring has yielded some of the best looking chroma-key work I've ever done.

                            I bought this to add a monitor or light to our DSLR video rig. It works pretty well but getting it locked down takes a bit more cranking than you think which can be difficult in the heat of battle. Once it's locked down, however, things are pretty solid.

                            Two points of contention:
                            1. The accessory shoe mount section can be a source of movement even when the arm is locked down and may require additional attention at times.

                            2. I wish the lock knob was a ratcheting lever as opposed to a standard knob.

                              I needed a cheap arm, and this one has surpassed my expectations. Solid quality, does the job. So far, so good!

                              This is necessary if you have a monitor or other accessory that you need to use. You can really get it wherever you need to with this. The only downside is that it's very hard to get it to stay solidly in place, especially if you are handheld or moving around. There aren't any other arms that are close to this price though so I can live with that for now.

                                  Use it along with Impact Atom Clamp to attach Ikan VK7i monitor to my tripod leg. Sturdier than I expected. I don't use the shoe attachment.

                                  Works as expected with many options for articulation. Base is not quite as stable as it could be if shoe mount was metal instead of plastic.
