Product Highlights
  • Multi-Angle Boom Arm
  • Fits Most Tripod Heads
  • 180-Degree Tilt Arm
  • 360-Degree Horizontal Pan
  • Ideal for Macro and Copying Photography

The V-4 Articulating Boom Arm from Velbon is a support that features a geared/slide elevator with a 180° tilt arm and a 360° horizontal pan. More versatile than a traditional side-arm, it fits onto almost any tripod, thanks to the included 1/4" and 3/8" mounting threads, and it can accommodate most tripod heads via the end pedestal which has a 1/4" screw.

A single twist of the grip at the end of the multi-angle arm loosens both the tilt and rotation, and when the arm is in the desired position, a twist of the grip in the opposite direction re-engages the lock and the arm is fixed again. It's particularly useful for macro photography, copying and any other application where fine adjustment of the camera position is required.

            One of a kind for Macro Photography solidly put together, very smooth in operation Brilliant idea, small,light,well thought of for the Sony Alpha NEX-7 and Sigma 30mm Macro lens with extension tubes and similar Cameras.Able to focus up to an 8th" to take picture of a Fire Ant.

                I'm doing videos that require a view of my hands. I can set this up and sit under the boom and get a vertical and downward view of my hands as I make my paracord bracelet and lanyard demo's for Youtube.It is just the right length. You will need to get a ball mount for the end to achieve this purpose.
