I'm mounting double cameras to take lighting pics and this bar fit the bill. With the two side mounts you have room to expand. The bar was reasonably priced but the mounts for the sides were a little pricey. I put a Manfrotto MOVE quick release system on it and my ballhead so I could swap them easily and it works great.

Totally awesome!

I had never seen one of these, I am in love. It's really the best & my new favorite accessory for my tripod. I'd buy it a 1000 times again, must have. I do milkyway Astrophotography Timelapse & it is perfect.

Very high quality & versatile add on for your tripod. Plenty of room for all of the extras (mics, lights, recorders, etc....). Once you have one, you will ALWAYS need it on your shoots! Just buy it already....

Fantastic tripod addition

I have recently attached it to my tripod. As the weather improves, I am sure I will find many uses for this attachment. It is well built.

Really lets you get the most out of gear you already own!

I was looking for this to get the most out of Some Great Old Gear. Over the years I have tested and purchased several different Ball Heads. I'm Currently shooting A Nikon Z 6II one one of the mount locations. I am using the other Horizontal mount with a my D800 and taking advantage of it's Super Flexible design to add a 7 LCD screen! Only time will tell what the Vertical mounts specialty purpose will be, Right Now I have two, 7, 4k, LCD Monitors.. Awesome rig for Tethered Shooting

An awesome device for using multiple cameras.

I shoot events and often have two cameras on two tripods very close to each other. With this I don't need the two tripods. Just stick this on one tripod and put the two cameras on this device to save space, especially in awkward areas where it might be hard to have two tripods. I love that I can attach a microphone and other things to the sides of it if needed. It's a solid piece of equipment and I'm glad I have it!

Worth it!

When this bar is mounted to a set of tripod legs and the screw holding them together is tightened down, can the bar be "spun" to different positions or is it affixed tightly to the legs (cannot be rotated)?
Asked by: Sarah
No, you would need to attach a pano base or a tripod head in between the bar and the tripod legs.

I just received this item. When I mount the bar to a set of tripod legs and turn the rubber wheel to tighten the screw, the wheel is very difficult to turn and sometimes I need both hands to turn it. Has anyone else experienced this?
Asked by: Sarah
It will depend on what you mean by difficult. The central thumb screw under the center of the Mounting arm is manufactured from rubber for better grip, but it can seem a bit awkward to to tighten. Two tips would be to 1) Ensure the screw on the bottom center of the Mounting Arm is properly seated on the screw on the top of your tripod's center column, and 2) Try holding the thumbscrew dial and instead, turn the entire bar clockwise to tighten the mounting bar to the center column on your tripod. While it should not be overly difficult if you are following the above instructions and the instructions listed in the instruction manual, and you still seem to be having issues with connecting the mounting bar to your tripod, I would recommend contacting Oben directly for assistance with the Mounting Bar either by calling them at (212) 594-2120 or by e-mailing them at info {at} obensupports {dot} com. If you purchased the item within the last 30 days, you may also contact our Customer Service Department to inquire about returning the item for an exchange or a refund.

I am an artist trying to video painting demonstrations. I need an overhead set up that gives me room to work. I would like to use my Canon 70D. I have a MeFOTO Globetrotter C2350 and a remote shutter release. Would this product work for my situation? Do you have any other suggestions, ie lights that would also attach? Thanks in advance!
Asked by: kelly
I would recommend a sturdier tripod for your purposes. The Globetrotter will not be stable enough. I would recommend the Sirui 3004; https://bhpho.to/30TfRqZ

Asked by: Jairo
The manufacturer has not specified a a weight capacity for the Oben TAB-4M Four-Mount Tripod Accessory Bar as there are many variables in terms of how it can be set up. This can comfortably hold at least 20 lb, but there is no set specification for this.
