Is the quick release Arca-Swiss compatible or is this a proprietary Manfrotto quick release?
Asked by: Curtis
This is absolutely a must when trying to hold a camera or a device in a constant position so it frees up your arm. This unit can position anything attached to it as freely as holding in your hand. I use this for holding my camera positions in place so I am free to move around lighting between shots.

What is the maximal length? What is the length of each section?
Asked by: Sarah
8.5" from the center of the joint to the end of each arm, so 17" end to end if it's straight, not including the silver 5/8" studs at the ends or the camera bracket.

Will this REALLY hold 6.6 lbs. if it is extended all the way out horizontally 20" with the weight at the end?
Asked by: John
Without knowing particulars, that sounds like an unsafe application, especially if it’s mounted overhead. Magic arms are designed like human arms, with two sections connected by an elbow joint. A 90 degree angle between the two sections is strong and reliable. The further one moves toward 0 degrees, the less stable the rig becomes.
