Manfrotto 196AB Overview

The two-section Manfrotto 196AB-2 Articulated Arm articulated arm supports 3.3 lbs @ full extension and weighs less than 1 lb. It also benefits from the extra versatility given by the sliding extension system which allows easier positioning of lighting fixtures even in awkward and tight spaces.

Maximum Length is 23.8 inches, and the bottom 5/8" spigot (compatible with the Superclamp, sold separately), also has a 1/4" thread.

Are the Manfrotto articulated arms made in Italy or elsewhere (like China)? Thanks for any information.
Asked by: Gary
The one I purchased here says made in Italy. If you zoom in on the photo here on B&H in the middle of the front arm to the right of the Manfrotto logo you can see it has the model number on the top line and made in Italy in the bottom left portion of the box. Look carefully you can read it.

Will this Manfrotto 196AB-2 Articulated Arm support a Atomos Shogun without batteries attached? If so, does it come with the proper screws, etc to attach to my Mafrotto N8 Fluid Video Head and tripod? Thank you.
Asked by: Gary
This arm would not be recommended. It would be better to use one of these arms. https://bhpho.to/3bxSztP

question

Can anyone tell me if this would be solid enough to support an elinchrom rx400 flash that would be fixed on an autopole as background lightning?
Asked by: Anonymous
if you extend the arm, you might be pushing the weight limits. I would suggest you go with the double articulated arm: B&H # MA396AB2 MFR # 396AB-2

question

Does this attach to the easylink connection on the manfrotto tripod?
Asked by: Matthew
Not by itself, no. You could use a 125 adapter to screw one one of this arm into the Easylink, but it might rotate on you if you have the majority of the weight on the counter-clockwise side. You're better off using a Super Clamp to attach it directly to one of the legs..
