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.

"Love it!...Good deal...Great For Hiking and Portability...I also figured out you could use this as a simple steadicam with a Canon 7D perched on top - of course this would tire your arm out after just a few minutes, but it will do in a pinch - just bend the magicarm until things feel balanced."

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).

B&H # KUKG203712 MFR # KG203612

With a black powder-coated finish, the Kupo 40" Hex Grip Arm with Big Handle has a 2-1/2" grip head mounted on the end of a 40" piece of steel tubing, which is 5/8" (16mm) in diameter. The surface of the tubing is machined to create a rough texture to ensure a non-slippery surface. The 2-1/2" grip head consists of a pair of rotating aluminum discs attached to a 5/8" (16 mm) receiver. The discs have 4 different sized V-shaped jaws to accept any accessory with a 5/8, 1/2, 3/8, or 1/4" mounting stud or tubing.

The V-shaped jaws feature teeth that securely grab whatever is mounted between the plates securely. The 2-1/2" grip head features an oversized ergonomic T-handle and dedicated roller bearings designed for maximum torque. At the end of the 40" grip arm, you will find a baby hex-pin with 6 milled flat surfaces.

You can mount your light fixtures or accessories on the end of your grip arm like a mini boom. They won't rotate due to the set-screw of that fixture or accessory, locking onto one of the sides of the hex-pin. The grip head uses a non-slip aluminum friction disc that maintains its durability over time, offering the user positive locking strength and precise control. The grip head is constructed around a solid steel central bolt with a fixed solid pin to secure it to the aluminum casting for increased strength and durability.
