Manfrotto 131DDB Reviews

Incredible add-on to video shooters

Very sturdy. Simple configuration. I can't think of a lot of ways to insult this, and I'm usually looking for something to take away one star no matter what. All because it seems something could be improved. This does really everything it can. It has 3/8 screws which I think is a must. You don't really don't need a tripod head for the top 2 mounts. You can always tighten it to be pointed to the side, as well as swivel it down. Just make sure you have a sturdy tripod. Here is my honest review. Don't feel you have to listen to me. I am not big on talking head, but giving real world examples seemed easier to say than type out. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pzCtVocO_sc

Great for when we need a portable unit to support the Nikon D850, Tascam audio and light. Excellent quality product.

Excellent value.

Like all Manfrotto products I've used, over many years, this accessory arm is well-made, works perfectly, and is an excellent value. Would purchase again in a heartbeat. And, related, as always B&H packaged the item professionally and it was delivered on-time.

needed to use a dual setup for recording two videos simultaneously at a conference. this together with small panasonic point and shoot cameras used in video mode worked great. also could attach a zoom audio recorder to end of bar directly.

Rock solid!

I use this on tripod with wheels when photographing on location, for mounting a tether table on one side and ball head on the other.

Very handy for solo video shooters

Just picked a couple of these up. They appear to be well built and serve the function that I was after. Very happy with the purchase. The only (minor) complaints I would have are that the sliding mounts don't screw as tight as I would like (though that may just be me), and the diameter of the silver rings for the end mounts are a bit big - my Manfrotto 492 ball heads are too small to mount cameras on them. This latter point is extremely annoying because it's less than a centimetre - otherwise would be 5 stars.

Great for Tethered Shooting

I had been looking at this for months and months. I preferred the black, but it was approximately $30 more than the chrome. Then I recently saw the black one came down in price where, for a short time, it was cheaper than the chrome version. I purchased this, along with a tethering table so I could shoot tethered. I have not been disappointed. This is a solid, well-made product. I have this mounted on a tripod with an 18 x 16 tether table on the left side, and a Manfrotto ball head on the right side with a DSLR attached to the head. Prior to purchasing, I was concerned that there wouldn't be enough space between the camera and the edge of the table. Well those concerns were unfounded, there is plenty of room. Being able to shoot tethered helps immensely when focusing is of utmost importance, such as doing macro work. This product, when used in this manner, delivers 100%!

I debated over several of these arms and opted to purchase this one as Manfrotto is always a solid product. Contacted them in advance to confirm this product is made in Italy and has a warranty. I used this on my first shoot supporting 2 GH5s with battery packs and Lumix lenses. No issues whatsoever.

question

There is a significant price difference between the black version of this arm ($123) and the silver version ($170). That is a big difference for a difference in color. Are the two versions the same in features? Is the silver version made of a higher grade metal?
Asked by: Jonathan L.
Currently the price difference is not as broad as this. As to why there is a any difference in price, we would go with the explanation the chrome plating costs more. Also know that retail pricing is not linear. It is based on cost, supply and demand. Those factors are what determine price. A much cheaper price might reflect too much inventory and the product must be moved. A high price might reflect short supply and high demand as well as manufacturing cost.

question

will this work for a canon fx 300 video camera or is it designed for smaller dslrs?
Asked by: Andy
As long as your camcorder has 3/8 -16 female tripod sockets to connect the camera to the Manfrotto 131DD Tripod Accessory Arm (or you will be using a tripod head on the threads to convert to the smaller 1/4 -20 threads, and as long as the tripod can support the weight of the arm and the camcorders you wish to connect to the arm, it should be compatible for your usage needs.
