    Manfrotto 131DD reviews

    131DD Tripod Accessory Arm for Four Heads (Silver) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 73.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is the way to go for professional vid I would like to thank B&H Photo that the customer service is very helpful to respond all the questions. I received the product right on time. I really like it. Also, thanks to Manfrotto. It is very sturdy material. I would prefer the silver color not the black and it is less expensive. I would suggest to buy some adapters that are compatible with your camera in order to be able to attach securely. Manfrotto Male 1/4 to female 3/8 for the small camcorders, etc... Also, Manfrotto 117B tripod is the one of the best for this arm. I highly recommend it for professional video recording with simultaneously using two (up to 4) cameras.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Strong and stable but with problems It is strong and stable but due to size and weight of accessories you attach to it shakes your tripod, I mean a strong tripod with 3 straight legs. You either need a super strong tripod or don't mind the shake. Also if you remove an item from it, there is a risk of it tipping over due to change in the balance. You definately need sand bags hanging from your tripod. Over all, I was wondering if I would be better off if I bought a separate tripod. The attachments on the top has no small screws to fix the attachments (end attachments have it), so attachments can get loose easily.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Uneven Bearing Surfaces A solid piece of equipment with a fatal flaw. On the arm I received both cast aluminum heads had a very uneven top surface, not only front to back, but also side to side. Even with the thumb wheels tightened as much as possible, my ball head see-sawed backwards and forwards alarmingly. Rather than go through the hassle of a return, I decided to file the high points down. Being aluminum it is easy enough to file, but it required the removal of a significant amount of material before it was flat enough to seat the ball head securely. If it is not possible to ensure that the cast aluminum surfaces are consistently flat, then either quality control should weed our the bad ones, or the surfaces should be machined. Grub screws in the bearing plate would also help.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'd buy another one in a heartbeat! I bought this as a poor man's alternative to a studio stand (see Manfrotto Mini Salon). I have it mounted on a heavy Manfrotto 475B geared tripod. On one of the camera mounts I have a Manfrotto 410 geared head and the whole thing is as stable as I could hope for. I plan to add a laptop platform on the 2nd camera mount and will tether the camera and laptop. By the way, you will want to mount the arm on top of a panning base as I did. I also bought a Feisol 60mm panning base that is attached to the tripod. On to this I attach the arm. So now I have a camera mount that moves vertically via the tripod gear and rotates via the panning base. All in all very happy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for tethered and photobooth I use the 131DDB Tripod Accessory Arm by Manfrotto along with the Gitzo G065 MONITOR PLATFORM - GIG065 for tethered shooting. It is solid, versitile, and much more than I expected for such a low price. When mounted as a crossbar on top of a sturdy tripod I put a camera on one mount and the monitor platform on the other. You can really lean on this thing!Recently I used one for a photo booth setup at a wedding. Check it out at @ was very easy to setup and was a big hit! As far as being sturdy, kids literally hung on it trying to see the monitor and it didn't bend, break, or fall over. (It was on a sturdy, but light carbon fiber Gitzo tripod that had a decent weight holding it down.)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best on heavier tripod As others have already mentioned, this is a great solution for tethered shooting. It is a hefty item and I would only recommend using it on a heavier tripod. For tethering to a laptop, I would recommend the Manfrotto 183 Projection table. It mounts directly to the mounts and is large enough for a small-to-medium laptop. My main con is that the bracket handles are plastic albeit thick. Only time will tell how well they hold up. Indexing marks would also be nice for lining up the brackets (although easily added). Another note is that the mounts are not really meant for direct camera mounting but rather for mounting tripod heads which mount quite securely.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slick and sturdy I use the arm for my in-studio work for tethered shooting. I set my camera on one side of the arm and have a laptop with running software on the other side. The setup is very sturdy coupled with Manfrotto tripod. Make sure that clamps/fixtures are tighten properly. No clutter, I can fold everything down very quickly and take it to work on-location. Good product. Thanks, Bogen and BH Photo.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent addition to your tripod Have used this several times in the studio and repeatedly on location shooting food shots for a restaurant chain. I mount my canon on one side tethered to my laptop on the other side and the shots come up in full 17 inch color. The marketing types hone in on exactly the shot that they need and it's a win win situation. In the studio I spin the laptop around and the client gets to see exactly what I'm capturing. This really seems to loosen up the uptight ones and inspire them all to ham it up a little more. I would highly recommend this as a solid piece of gear.
