    In the era of DSLR video capture it is essential to have an articulating arm to mount any type of enhancing equipment to your camera which if you're a professional creates an efficient working environment that impresses the client. I own a metal dual-split screw on shoe mount and the addition to this Arm with its metal shoe conveniently allow me to add 7" monitor with a 4" LED Panel Light. For the price it's ideal because it can be augmented to fit on other rigs.

    I have a DSLR operation. Recently purchased the Marshall 7" monitor, and decided to spoil it with this arm.

    I gotta say the arm is OK and lives up its promises,
    but I find myself using the mount I got with the monitor more, mostly because it's lighter.

    The articulating arm also has a lot of options to manuver - after all it IS articulating ! And sometimes you with to keep it simple.

        Comments about Pearstone 4.2" (10.7cm) Articulating Israeli Arm:

        I love this little arm. Allows you to mount to a hot/cold shoe as well as a normal 1/4" screw. Maneuvers great with just a single nob. When mounted to a shoe it was not quite as secure as I'd like but it does the job.

            This works really well. Does exactly what you need. I use it for mounting a monitor to a DSLR cage. It's been in constant use for 3 months and I haven't had any reason to complain. Highly recommended.

                  I try to avoid using articulating arms because I can never get one of the two ends from becoming loose.

                  But sometimes you just need to have one so I got this one. It is easy to tighten once you get it in place and comes with a removable hot shoe and extender.

                  Comments about Pearstone 4.2" (10.7cm) Articulating Israeli Arm:

                  The arm locks great, however there is just enough space to slide the base into the hot shoe on the camera making it difficult/unable to secure the arm to the camera. Not the biggest issue when shooting on a tripod, but my monitor kept sliding off while shooting handheld. Luckily, there was no damage.

                            Works well and hold tight, you are able to move it easily then lock it down in any position. I bought it to attach a monitor to my DSLR cage rig so it's handy that you can disassemble the cold shoe and have a male or female attachment. The only drawback is the weight which is just another straw to the camels back on a rig.

                            Its ok for the cost. But given how important it is for my monitor on my DSLR rig, I sort of wished I went for the higher quality option.

                                I use this item with my CPM rig and it's great. If I could go back I'd buy the 6" version.

                                  The Pearstone articulating Israeli Arm is just what I needed to mount my Sony monitor to my rails. I ended up taking the shoe mount part off that made it fit my setup perfectly.

                                    Mount LCD display devices and other hardware on top or side of camera. Pliable and non-obtrusive. Can me moved and adjusted in any position.
