Learning About Articulating Camera Arms
Articulating arms improve comfort for video technicians, by offering a hands-free monitor viewing experience. Articulating monitor arms have various load capacities to give options for heavier camera and video equipment. Use production monitor mounting brackets and heavy-duty arms for lighting and audio equipment. Mount smaller lights, microphones, audio recorders, and other camera and video accessories from miniature arms for improved flexibility during your productions.
Mounting Equipment for Articulating Arms
Monitor arms can mount to cameras, tripods, C-stands, and other compatible production equipment. Using professional video monitor rackmounts and swing arms offers better coverage, as the arms may have 360-degree joint rotation. Heavy-duty articulating arms have adjustable arm length that easily changes to offer greater reach for audio and video equipment. Some monitor arms mount with clamps or clips, while others use accessories such as shoe mounts and 1/4 to 20" adapters and screws. For quick equipment and arm adjustments, use non-screwing arms with quick-release mechanisms.
Choosing Monitor Extension Arms
Swing arms are easy to move horizontally and vertically for increased mobility and range of audio or visual equipment. Heavy-duty arms can hold larger gear steady without bending under the extra weight. Articulating arms have flexible end joints that can pivot at a 90-degree angle for increased function on production sets. Single-point locking mechanisms provide stable support for your equipment and monitor arms. Ratcheting joints provide more security against arms swinging or moving if bumped. Use easily adjustable, three-point ratcheting arms with locking levers for expanded stability. Get steady shots from multiple angles with monitor arms in different sizes and styles.
