    Manfrotto 196B-2 reviews

    2-Section Single Articulated Arm with Camera Bracket is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Support I bought this Articulated Arm to help position a small DSLR (a Canon Rebel) for a Photo Booth. The Arm is mounted to a C-Stand using a Super Clamp. For my uses, the 196B worked great. I wouldn't try mounting anything bigger than a hotshoe flash or a small DSLR.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product I am using this with a wall mount boom arm to position a camcorder above a workbench for educational videos. This allows me any position I want from the camcorder. Great product.
    Date published: 2015-06-11
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A little short, otherwise OK I use this with a Super Clamp to support a Sony HandyCam. The arm sections are a little shorter than I had hoped (they are 27cm/11in) but not so short to be unusable for my needs. Very easy to set up and use, excellent flexibility for positioning.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cheap, Useful Tool! I use this extender arm with my even cheaper tripod to do document photography. Yes, I am on a budget, and this product was great for that. It is not the easiest piece of equipment to set up -- requires some fiddling and is a bit clunky -- but it's small and light, and once I got it together the way I wanted, it held my camera reliably, so neither the camera nor the expensive glass negatives it was suspended over were harmed. It is also quite adjustable, which was very nice. Great product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I used this recently to mount a small camera on stage during a concert and it worked fabulously. I also used it to mount a small light during a quick interview shoot. It's been flawless so far!
    Date published: 2013-06-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong Arm It's a strong Arm, no slip and slide like other cheap brands. I use it in combination with a Super Clamp to attache an On-Camera-LED light to my tripod.
    Date published: 2016-12-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and Well Made ! Manfrotto products and accessories, in my opinion, are always well designed and well made. These arms are no exception. I have two of them. They offer vastly improved flexibility in light positioning and are very durable and well made. Makes it very easy to add and position one of your Speedlites for a hair or rim light without having to constantly move the stand around. Not quite as far reaching as a boom, but much more compact and lighter. Folds up quite nicely and compact.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well Nice little arm. Lightweight. I hang my GH4 off it. Just what I needed
