    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.

          We had to replace our previous piece on our jib due to an intern's overzealousness. The Pearstone is better than the old one - easier to use and set up was a snap.

            I was concerned at first about this, since the price was low compared to the other big name articulating arms. But it works great for my 7" HD field monitor, and I couldn't have asked for more. Works just as described and holds my monitor securely.

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

              This little arm acts very much like the bigger Manfrotto Magic Arm and similar products. As would be expected of its size, it's not up to the challenge of holding heavier items (I tried with a 2lb monitor and it sagged), but it seems well enough built and I expect I will find several uses for it.

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

                It does what it says, but the ball joint locks are a bit weak unless you crank the tightening dial so hard it feels like it's going to break. Also it tends to loosen on it's own after a while. I don't think it's necessarily a flaw so much as a product of it's simple design.

                On the plus side, it feels well made, sturdy construction and if you aren't holding something heavy (I'm using a 7" Ikan D7W monitor in the field) it likely works well. Anything over about 3/4lbs is apparently a bit too heavy.

                        This was easy to setup, mount, and adjust. Attached the marshall 7" field monitor to the Sony PMW 200. It did take a little adjusting to get it to balance properly.

                                  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.

                                    I have purchased several of these Pearstone arms and they work very well. No complaints at all. Best of all, they cost a fraction of other brands.

                                    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.

                                      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.
