Matthews 429627 overview

  • 1Description

Supporting up to 32 lb, the Matthews Infinity Arm is a super-strength, modular cine arm that may highly simplify your on-set workflow. Supporting nine different accessory tips via secure ball sockets on both ends, it's designed to serve you well across the gamut of grip applications, such as mounting cameras, lights, and monitors underslung from C-stands, booms, or speed rails. Two 1/4"-20 male accessory tips are included, and a soft carrying case is also supplied for storing the arm and additional tips, providing room for growth.

The Infinity Arm is made of two identical sections, and measures 9" from end-to-end without tips. Its strength is the result of superior materials of construction and machining process. It's built out of steel and aircraft grade aluminum, and features a 60-section radial rosette in the center machined with a focus on getting a good grip at every section. The Infinity Arm will reliably hold 15 lb when in a fully horizontal position—which is naturally the least strong position—and up to 32 lb when you start adjusting it to more angled positions, with a 90° angle being its strongest configuration.

The rosette mechanism is adjustable by loosening/tightening a large knurled, easy-to-handle dial on the side. The supported accessory tips are fully 360° rotatable. On top of everything, the Infinity Arm has a nice appearance, and is neither overdone nor underdone in its aesthetic design. It is finished with military grade black anodize and proprietary electroless nickel phosphorus. And, although designed with a focus on grip applications, it can also be used for standard camera-mount and rig-mount uses.

    Infinity Arm Kit is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth the Weight I've been hearing rumors of this arm for a while now and now that I've finally got one in my hands, I can see why everyone's so excited. THIS ARM IS INDESTRUCTIBLE!!! Those are four words that I never expected to use as a description for an articulating arm! This has been able to do everything from mount monitors, to support my slider, to replacing bulky light stands when I was in a tight space. It is a bit heavier than most arms, but it's worth the weight because you will never have to replace this thing!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convenient While the arm may be a bit big, or heavy, for many smaller accessories or uses, it gives you way more control over what you can attach to your camera. Also, its sockets are replaceable which is incredibly relieving because sockets on most articulating arms break or deteriorate very quickly, generally forcing you to replace the entire arm, rather than just the broken part; however, with the Infinity Arm you are able to just replace the broken socket.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong I have been working with articulating arms for years now and I don't believe that I've ever seen an articulating arm survive more than a year or so. After seeing this at the Cine Gear Expo, I decided to try it out. While it's still too soon to judge it's durability, it feels much stronger than any arm I've used before. I also wanted to see how easily the sockets would swap out and literally all I had to do was press on it and it released. As soon as I tightened it back up, it felt strong as ever.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a great product The only bad thing about the infinity arm is the price and maybe the weight. Other than that it is strong, reliable, and the quick change tips are just great! So many other articulating arms are annoying because they give out and you never can tell if you're over tightening them. The infinity arm's hard stops and rosette make this thing such a pleasure to work with. It is a little heavy, but its not too bad. Other arms I've bought tin the past were always annoying to use, but I honestly look forward to each time I work with the infinity arm.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Matthews Quality I use this product to mount my Odyssey 7Q+ to my Sony FS7. I hesitated because it looked heavy, and it is solid for sure, but it puts all of the other arms I've invested in to shame. Expensive, a little heavy, outstanding quality and functionality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best arm, cheapest arm, no contest IDK why people think this is pricey??? Given that EVERY friggin cine arm I’ve ever had gets worn raw within a few months of normal use, this is the cheapest arm on the market, because you normally have to buy 3 Cine arms per year, so you’ll be $2K in the hole before this one even breaks a sweat. This is a tank. It’s so nice to feel confident enough to put my heavy Odyssey on it AND use it as a top handle. It never budges. I can mount the entire camera with it for birds eye shots over talent and not even sweat it. The knob (instead of lever) makes for a great grip point, and you won’t ever accidentally unlock the arm the way you can with other cine arms. The crazy strength of this thing also allows you to use its own grip torque to tighten your mount heads, so it’s like its own wrench...makes it really easy to field strip your gear quickly, without tools. The removable head system is beyond clutch. I just have mounts that live on all my cameras and monitors and lights, and swapping things out or packing up is so much more efficient. This is a truly brilliant design and I don’t know why it took so long for someone to conceive such an intuitive innovation on the cine arm. Whoever designed this is a sage. I film a lot of wild land fires and am exposed to perhaps the harshest environmental conditions imaginable...ash, sparks, water, retardant, soot, molten metal, bros...this thing literally has never had a problem. Never shows any sign of grip loss. The rosette always locks. This is an absolute tank that will last you for years. Dollar cost average that out. You’ll realize this is easily the cheapest arm on the market.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overbuilt I was tired of replacing busted friction arms every couple of months and on a whim of frustration clicked the buy button on this expensive arm.� Well, it's worth every penny as it should be able to withstand a whole career's worth of use.� It's a tank! I use it to hold my caged Atomos Shogun to my FS5.� The picture is meant to test the worst case positioning, which it did without a problem.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb! Excellent, well-engineered item, properly made. I was rather cautious about ordering this from London without actually handling it but Matthews were very helpful in emailing me the dimensions of this arm as I needed to put it in a tight space.� I ordered from B&H as I have had good service from them before and they dispatched it on the same day I ordered and it arrived in London in only four days. � This is not a cheap item but the quality makes it well worth the price. Even after paying the mail and import duty it was MUCH cheaper than buying in London. The arm is very solid and easy to use. The package includes a nice case and an extra 3/8" threaded ball which was not mentioned on the website. The arm already has a 3/8" and 1/4" ball on it, a total of three balls. The arm is not particularly light but is really solid and locks perfectly. (Titanium would be lighter but probably prohibitively expensive). I have the arm mounted on my Miller Solo tripod with Compass 15 head on which I use my full-size professional video camera and Leica SL but it would be strong enough to mount either camera by itself without a tripod. The arm mounts on the side of the fluid head in order to hold a microphone, light or monitor. A 6" x 5/8" extension rod raises the light above the camera. Easy, quick-change ball-heads with excellent safety features to stop your gear falling off the ends. A really professional accessory and well worth the money.
