Manfrotto 396B-2 overview

  • 1Description

The Manfrotto 396B-2 Articulated Arm supports up to 11 lbs with its built-in camera bracket. The 396B-2 offers excellent performance: robustness, lightness and versatility. The 396 family has been developed to provide greater rigidity and support than the 196 range, while maintaining flexibility thanks to its extendable sliding arm, further enhanced by its quick lock system.

Maximum Length of the 396B-2 is 24.5 inches, and the new bottom attachment adds to the strength and versatility of the 396B-2, with a spigot that combines both a hexagonal part for anti-rotation attachment in the optional Superclamp and a universal adapter section (for attaching to a wide range of stands, clamps and accessories).

Manfrotto 396B-2 reviews

Double Articulated Arm - 2 Sections With Camera Bracket is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great arm with multiple uses. I was pleasantly surprised with just how rugged and solidly built this was - and of course versatile! I bought a few more after realizing just how useful it was. I certainly wouldn't recommend this to others, but I put my D700 with a 24-70 on it and was confident it was secure - it was solid. Of course you need a fresh bogen super clamp (critical) firmly affixed to a sure / solid support. I also put a Really Right Stuff PCL-1 panning clamp on it. Multiple flash setups are no trouble for this arm - it will twist and turn into any conceivable angle. My favorite Bogen / Manfrotto arm is the magic arm - that thing is a rock!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flexible and strong / well built I use the arm mainly for supporting a video monitor from a tripod, but this flexible arm could be used for lighting or an additional camera... I'm sure that I will find many uses in the future. I bought two of these along with matching super clamps, and the combinations are endless. I have many Manfrotto products, and each one is better than the other. These arms are strong enough to hold most anything within reason. Well worth the price. The only thing that could improve them would be an additional axis to swivel on, but just repositioning the super clamp usually does the trick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very strong and flexible. it's a Manfrotto. Works very well. I received it today and made a test to see how it funtion with a light hair, with a SB900 and a snoot. This thing supported very well. Only the tripod wasn't very stable, but the experience had good results for use in small environment. This piece have several utiltys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Arm Using arm to mount an industrial machine vision camera and LED ring light. Lightweight yet solid. Perfect for my application.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for tabletop macro I needed something that would allow flexible positioning of a Nikon D3200 camera with a Micro-Nikkor lens for tabletop macro photography. This arm works great with the heavy-duty Gitzo GT3320BS tabletop tripod, with the legs set at the widest angle to prevent top-heavy situations. I would be very careful if using a light tabletop tripod.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Double Articulated Arm This item works exactly as promised. It is very, very sturdy and does not move or give hardly at all. I don't feel jittery thinking my $3500 camera is going to fall off. I highly recommend it.
