    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.

    Good cheap option

    By Brad

    from New Jersey

    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.

              This here Israeli Arm does the trick. I mount it on the hotshoe of my 5D Mark 3 as a monitor mount and it works great. It's easy to move, set and lock into place. Very pleased.

              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 ths articulating arm with my Canon 5D and an external monitor. Before I just used a monitor mount which was very unstable and would constantly have to be tightened. Not only is this articulating arm very well built but it also holds the weight of my monitor very well and does not wobble like my old monitor mount. This was key for using my camera with my balanced shoulder rig. The ways you can position your monitor help with balancing the weight, making sure you have a clear view of the monitor, the camera, and where you are walking.

                                    This arm is funny looking, but the designer sure knew what he/she was doing. You can twist it to just the position you need and then tighten with a single knob. Best I have seen.

                                      I use it with a clamp and I attach my monitor to my tripod. It works better than I had hoped!
