    Manfrotto 244MICRO reviews

    244 Micro Friction Arm is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 26.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty solid little arm Solid little arm. I was looking for something to mount an atmos screen to the gh5 with no cage. I attach it to the bottom of the camera body and put the screen covering the flip screen. It works pretty well like that. Sometimes it wants to screw loose like every other arm on the planet but it does it less than most. I have one issue which is why only 4 atars. One end of it keeps locking into a position when the arm is supposed to be flexible. Its adifficult to move and ill mess with it for a while and it will finally pop loose to match the rest of the arm. Im guessing i just need to keep using it so the natural wear takes care of that

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top quality, silky smooth action I have several small articulating arms, including two of this 244 micro friction arm. I use them along with Manfrotto nano-clamp and super-clamps mounted on my tripods to position and hold field monitors and field recorders (I like mounting them on the tripod rather than hotshoe or camera-cage - sturdier and better positioning flexibility). You can use the 3/8-16 anti-rotation adapter directly on Manfrotto tripods so equipped. I don't have the compatible tripods and prefer the clamps, so I modified the clamps with slots to accept the anti-rotation adapters. On the monitor end, I use the standard 1/4-20 studs with (not supplied) flat jam-nuts. The other arm I have is a Pearstone that came with one of the monitors. The Pearstone is half the price, but you get what you pay for. To function well, I expect the friction arm to transition from completely loose to rock-solid, with a progressive, smooth increase in friction as I tighten the cam. The Pearstone just doesn't have the fit and finish on the ball joints, so it catches and binds as I try to adjust it. The Manfrotto is so smooth and easy to adjust when the cam is open, and positioning the monitor with medium friction is the same - beautifully smooth. Then when I lock it down, it is completely rigid - solid as can be. The quality of machining and polishing and overall workmanship on this arm is top-notch. Don't try to save money on the cheap knock-offs - you will ultimately regret it. I am not a Monfrotto worshipper - I think they make some good stuff and some mediocre stuff as well - but this micro friction arm is one really well-made piece and worth the extra coin.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small but Strong I needed something small but strong and this did the job. I have tested other arms at this size and this by far is strongest. It Rocks!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best Magic arm by far I have used a lot of different arms in the past and they have all been unreliable and weak. Not the case with this baby. It is rock solid and super dependable. I can easily mount a 7 monitor on this and it stays locked in place. By far the best magic arm I have ever encountered

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would recommend to a friend Fit and finish is excellent and it works well. It fits well with the 3/8 connection on the Manfrotto tripod. Manfrotto quality shows! Buy the anti-twist adapter if you are going to connect to the Manfrotto tripod.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Built and Well Worth the Money Although this friction arm is on the expensive side it worth the money. It's all-metal construction gives it a nice weight in-hand and to the eye a sense of a quality product. This feeling is confirmed when using it attached to a Manfrotto tripod via the Easy Link to hold an audio recorder. It is very easy to position it simply by unscrewing the center knob which allows the friction arm to be articulated at all of its "joints" at once. Once it is in the desired position it can be securely locked into place by turning the center knob in the opposite direction. I have had no problem with movement while it was holding a Zoom H6 recorder even will having the tripod on my shoulder while moving short distances to a new shooting location. I highly recommended this friction arm.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This could even hold a tank After my Chinese Magic Arm magically broke into pieces, I decided to look for a really sturdy monitor arm. I came across this product and will never regret buying it. It operates very smoothly, locks tightly into place and it's not even that expensive.
