    Manfrotto 143A reviews

    143A Magic Arm with Camera Bracket is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best invention since sliced bread I've had this piece of equipment for over twenty years and it's still going strong, it's so well made and tough that it's almost bomb proof. I may have used it with a camera a few times but generally it's been used in the studio on on location to hold props, lights, gels etc or anything that's heavy and needs precise placement for a shot. For me it once held an antique muzzle loader at the angle I required for a shot, just add one of those inexpensive hand spring clamps from a hardware store and you're set to go. Great for hobby work to hold anything for gluing etc. If I never shoot another image I would never ever sell or giveaway this great little tool!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Magic Arm I work on a documentary editing project where we frequently need to take images of old documents but don't have much time. We have the Magic Arm set up on a desk (using a desk clamp). It's extremely convenient because it stays set up in the right position, and we just have to slide the documents under the camera and snap the picture. It's also easy to maneuver when we need to make adjustments.It's a little bit shorter than we expected. But we have two of them and found that we could connect them together and use that to get the necessary height or distance to take pictures of larger documents.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A handy must This item has been around for several years. It continues to be as handy now as ever. I use it for as much as my imagination and it's attachments can make it do.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from a great tool for serious people. 143A Magic Arm with Camera Bracket by Manfrotto is a great tool for serious professional vidoe/camera folks. This tool gives a lot of room for adjustment and for use in many angles. Once you adjust it even if you put your heavy camera screen you know it won't fall off. NB= To use the Magic Arm make sure that you have a strong tripod that will be able to support it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great support I use these supports for a wide variety of functions - in some cases to hold flashes, but in other cases to hold portable monitors or heavy cameras. They are rock solid - no flexure - really great pieces of gear. You get what you pay for -

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from just awsome one switch locks the magic arm locks it in place. its little bit hard to lock it in place and i wish it was lighter.
    Date published: 2009-03-12
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Stays right where you put it. It would be nice to be able to adjust without completly releasing all tension of arm.
    Date published: 2011-01-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing on the market works as well! The company I work for develops high speed vision systems for manufacturing companies where the placement of the camera is essential to finding and eliminating mechanical error. The Magic Arm is the only thing we have found that makes this possible. Once you attach the arm you can move it anyway to get the best angle for the best shot. Not one of our systems is sold without one.
