"Love it!...Rock Solid...Heavy, but portable enough to take on location....The rubber grips on the Grip Arm handles are a nice touch, but the handles still feel a bit smaller than those on an equivalent Matthews grip arm."

The Suction Cup & Locking Arm from Joby mounts your action camera on flat, non-porous surfaces using an industrial strength suction cup that locks in place with a simple quarter turn of its base. Attached to the Suction Cup is a Locking Arm that lets you position your camera at any angle thanks to two ball joints that rotate 360° and pivot 180° from side to side. The arm locks in place with a tightening knob that won't come loose from vibration. A 1/4"-20 screw at the end of the Locking Arm lets you attach your camera, or a GoPro tripod mount for use with GoPro cameras.

The Elinchrom EL Handheld Boom Arm (25-61") has a rubberized handgrip and can be used to extend lights up to 5.1' (156 cm). This is a more precise, flexible way to position lighting gear (even with umbrellas or softboxes) than placing it on stands, and it takes up less floor space as well. The two sections of the EL-Boom Arm can be quickly adjusted with the clip-locks. The standard spigot mount fits Elinchrom flash heads and the Ranger Quadra heads. The arm will hold approximately 4.4 lb (2 kg).

"Great product...Light weight....Portable, small size handheld...I love using this hand-held boom arm rather than a regular light stand when using a voice activated light stand (aka a human) for holding up a strobe light with modifier."

"A Boom...Good buy...especially when considering portability....Working with the counterweight is probably a bit more cumbersome that a hook to hang a sandbag, but because it can slide along one side, it also offers more options for how long the light head is away from the stand pivot point."
