The GyroVu 7" Heavy-Duty Articulated Arm with Shoe Mount allows you to attach a monitor or other accessory directly to your camera's hot shoe or to a camera cage that has a shoe mount. The maximum supported load capacity of 12 lb is best attached to a cage since that's too much weight for your camera's hot shoe, but lighter devices and accessories can safely be mounted on your camera. This arm comes with a shoe mount adapter secured on one end, and this adapter can be removed to provide you with a 1/4"-20 post on each end, allowing for alternate mounting options. Fully extended, the arm measures 7". A wingnut in the center tightens all three points of articulation at the same time.
