question

What's the max payload this can hold? Want to mount a C300 MKII with Canon 24 -70mm
Asked by: James
Since the Manfrotto 143N Magic Arm can hold up to 6.6 lbs, the Super Clamp holds 33 lbs and the BackLight Base can also hold up to 33 lbs, the Canon C300 Mark II and Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 II USM can definitely be held securely with this kit.

question

Will this support a Canon 1D MK4 with a 70-200mm lens?
Asked by: Dianne O.
That setup can support no more than 6.6 lbs.If you mean the canon 5d Mark IV and lens it is about 5.28 lbs combined. It is too close to the maximum in my opinion and at the least will tip over.I would not recommend that set up with that camera and lens.

question

Will it work on Odyssey 7Q+ and Sony FS700? Or should I use another Magic Arm? Thanks.
Asked by: Christian S.
Being that the Convergent Design Odyssey7Q+ and the Sony NEX-FS700R Super 35 Camcorder both have a threading that is compatible with the Manfrotto 143BKT bracket in this kit, you can use the 143N Magic Arm with them. This would be especially good to use if you are attaching the Odyssey 7Q + to the leg of your tripod with the Super Clamp or the camera to a flat or rounded surface with the same clamp.
