Manfrotto Mini Friction Arm Reviews
Perfect addition to the location kit
Well Made..Many Uses: Mics/Atomos etc
Control your desktop Zoom studio lighting like a pro ...
Essential kit for the years ahead. This sturdy and thoroughly engineered friction arm is fully articulated, offering 6DoF (six degrees of freedom) for positioning your lighting or camera. Slightly larger than the micro version, the 244Mini provides a wider diameter sphere for more dramatic lighting effects. And of course, it works perfectly with the Manfrotto tripod.
I bought this arm to hold my Atomos Shogun. It is totally awesome!!! It is built like a tank and way beyond durable. The price on it is exactly where it should be. If you buy cheap you get cheap. This little unit will definitely do the job for you.
Scratches too easily
Arrived w. a few scratches (insufficient packaging by B&H Photo?), but I let it slide. If I realized how easily the paint job gets scratched, might have sent it back. (-1 star) Other issue is how the screws tighten; knurled wheels, like what TetherTools uses, would have been a better idea. (-2 stars) Using it to connect an Atomos Shinobi 5 monitor to my RRS tripod, and the quality of support is excellent. Cannot imagine it ever failing. Since attaching/detaching it is so tedious, it's not getting used as much as it might otherwise. 20-20 hindsight, should have purchased an easier to use arm.
Best arm for heavy duty tasks
I have two of these arms and they have not failed me once. I use these arms exclusively to hold monitors on a RED Scarlet and they are beefy, heavy duty arms that will take a beating yet still be light enough to not add too much weight to the operator. Another quality Manfrotto product that does not disappoint, unlike many smaller brands that become loose over time.
Manfrotto 244MINI Friction Arm, top of the line arm!
Yes, the Manfrotto 244MINI Friction Arm is expensive, but you get what you pay for. As a professional Cinematographer I only use Manfrotto arms, very sturdy and will not loosen up during shooting. The problem with less expensive arms is that will move or loosen up during shooting and can damage expensive gear especially if it fall off, it has happened to a number of shooters. If your getting into video production stick with what works, last thing you need on a set is equipment that fails.
Strong and adjustable.
I never knew how much I would appreciate a little support arm like this. It holds my Atomos Ninja monitor with ease. Well worth the money.
