Noga NF38CA-CL1 overview

  • 1Description

The Noga Cine Arm and Cine Lock Kit 1 combines the "small" Cine Arm NF with a Cine Lock quick release adapter that allows snapping an accessory on/off. The Cine Lock consists of two parts, one for the arm and one for the accessory, that unlock at the slide of a lever. The Cine Arm totals approximately 7" in length end to end and supports up to 7.2 lb. It features a 1/4"-20 mounting screw on one end and 3/8"-16 screw on the other, and the Cine Lock offers both 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 screws.

  • NF9038CA CineArm NF (Small)

    The Noga NF9038CA CineArm NF (Small) is composed of three-joints that can be quickly and efficiently locked or released using a kip lever-based central mechanism. All three-joints can be simultaneously locked using the single central locking knob. While supporting camera lights and monitors, you can move the arm horizontally or vertically, as well as achieve tilt adjustments to obtain the best possible view. With equal length on both sides, the arm offers increased strength and holding resistance.

  • Cine Lock Quick Release Mounting Device

    The 16x9 Cine Lock Quick Release Mounting Device consists of two parts that each attach to separate pieces of equipment and then lock into one another, and at the slide of a pin they unlock and separate from each other. Thus they provide quick-release functionality between cameras and accessories, and can be used with most any 1/4" or 3/8" gear.

    The two parts are a burgundy wedge and a gray plate. They each attach onto a piece of equipment regardless of whether the equipment has a stud or a screw-hole as its mounting option. Both parts have to them two different-sized screw-holes. Via one of the two, each part either screws onto a stud, or -- by means of one of three screws that come included with the Cine Lock -- gets fastened to a screw-hole of a piece of equipment. The screw-holes of the wedge and plate are of 1/4" and 3/8" sizes, and the included screws are of the same sizes.

    Provides quick-release functionality with most any 1/4" or 3/8" equipment.
    Screws onto a stud or gets fastened into a screw-hole by means of included screws.
    Consists of two components. One slides and locks into the other, and a slide of a pin unlocks them.

Noga NF38CA-CL1 reviews

Cine Arm and Cine Lock Kit 1 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from worth the extra money I tried cheap solutions for mounting my Atomos Ninja Blade on my C100, and it was a disaster. No matter how hard I tightended them, the arms would swing loose eventually, ruining shots and making run and gun shooting impossible. This little Noga arm made all the difference in the world. It's rock solid, it might as well be a part of the camera. The quick release is a little Wonky, which is what lost it one star. I use it at the point I attach the arm to my cheese plate, and once I tightened the hell out of it there with a washer in place, it stays. I use a different quick release on the other end, a Mathews, which is much better than this one, though expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic bit of kit The reason behind buying this unit was to hold field monitor to a tripod. The quick release plate is invaluable as rather than attempting to screw on the monitor every time the base plate remains on and it slides and locks into place. Too many times have I come close to dropping the Small HD whilst trying to screw it on some other arms. The other great advantage is the tightening lever which is so easy to turn and locks the entire arm in place; compared to trying to twist a circular knob on other models. It is certainly worth the investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE BETTER MOUSETRAP. I own and operate a Silicon Imaging/P+S Technik SI2K camera-recorder in Perth, Western Australia. The main operator interface is a touch screen display which is mounted to the camera body on a long Noga Arm. As supplied ex-works, the long Noga arm fits to the camera body via a threaded hole on the carry handle and to the base of the monitor, also by a threaded hole. There is no quick-disconnect device as standard. This arrangement requires that you either risk short commutes with the camera fully assembled or dismantle the monitor and arm from the camera. If the monitor stays on, there is a chance of damage unless a custom hard protective cover is made for slipping over the face of the screen. Removing the monitor is a tiresome chore when time is at a premium. Firstly the four monitor cables have to be taken off, then the monitor spun off the threaded pillar on top of the Noga arm with the attendant risk of damage from dropping. This leaves the Noga arm itself attached to the camera handle. To remove it requires a spanner. I had heard of a quick-release dovetail plate attachment for Noga arms but had not been able to find it in searches. I chanced upon this combined assembly which included a quick-release dovetail plate on the BHPhoto site. I had been searching for a shorter Noga arm than the standard supplied longer version. I now use this arm. It is so much more convenient to be able to quickly dismount the monitor from the camera body. It is also small and light enough to pack assembed to the monitor in a fitted foam liner in a box without risk of damage. If the monitor must be separated from the arm, after dismounting the quick-release plate, the arm itself is adjusted straight and then simply rotated out of the monitor base whilst the monitor itself is held safely firm. This Cine Arm version also employs what is referred to as a kip lever. It replaces the wheel found on the original longer arm for tightening down on the centre friction cam to lock the pivots on the arm. If the lever comes into interference against any structure and cannot be moved far enough to tighten or release, by pulling back against spring pressure, the lever can be disengaged from its centre and freely rotated to a more convenient operating position. It also requires less effort by the operator to tighten the friction to effective lock. The shorter arms permit less leverage force against the pivots by the weight of the monitor which is now reassuringly more secure against sudden falls onto the camera body. The monitor can still be oriented conveniently for direction and for as much height above the camera body as is a practical requirement. If the monitor needs to be as far from the camera body as the cables will allow, then the quick-release plate allows this to happen instantly and the monitor can be operated handheld. The original camera handle fittings are 1/4. The bare base of this arm is a 3/8 fitting. This screws into the wedgeplate. The base into which the plate engages, conveniently has provision for a 3/8 or 1/4 fitting screw which is provided in the kit. If there is any shortcoming it may be that the normal careful cleanliness applicable to cameras should be also applied to the arm-end ballpivots to avoid excessive wear of the small expanding retention rings and the machined channels they locate in. The need to overtighten the longer standard-issue arm, combined with wear caused by grit and dried out lube, eventually caused one ball-end to fail. The worn ring forced the metal edge of the channel away to the point where because of added clearance at the internal pushrod-ends, it was no longer possible to tighten the upper arm. The ball-end finally came off. The shorter arms of this product and their greater effective resistance to the weight of the monitor, do not invite this abuse. It is thus an improved option in this application for me. There was no exploded diagram of the kip lever/cam assembly received with this kit or the original longer arm supplied by SI/P+S Technik. Thus if you are unsystematic when dismantling for cleaning/relubing or you clumsily lose grip of the assembly and the parts scatter, or some curious kid-eager pulls it apart to see how it works, it can be a devilish monkey-puzzle to put back together correctly without the help of a diagram. A small issue is that the collars at the ends of each arm cannot pass without the assembly being adjusted to entirely loose or force is used to make them pass. An added spacer between the arms at the centre would fix this and permit an easier lowest possible setting of the monitor position. In my own application, the mount on the handle is higher than the lowermost position the monitor can move to against the top of the camera body. With sensible care and use, this product can be expected to endure for the lifetime of the appliances it is connected to.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quick & convenient -- and heavy duty I use this to mount a Panasonic BT-LH80WP to an HPX500. The ability to mount the monitor quickly, and to take it off quickly, is a huge plus: much quicker than fooling around with a noga arm directly. My only problem is that I would prefer a 3/8 Noga arm to monitor connection -- I would think that would be better than a 1/4 connection... but all in all, am happy with the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super strong, super flexible I've gone through many magic arms for mounting EVF, Monitors, sound devices, on-camera lights. The Noga arms are still by far the most solid and flexible. Although they tend to be a little heavier than some of the other magic arms, they are still my first choice for flexibly mounting devices to my rigs. Make sure you choose the right length for your needs!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great... But I use this system with a Ninja so I can easily switch between my shoulder rig and tripod (two Cini Lock kits). It is a GREAT solution, but... I have the Cini Lock mounted horizontally on the tripod. I started slipping loose after about a week. I think a rubber gasket will do the trick but it's a bummer. It started happening right at the end of a shoot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from what I've been missing I use this to attach a monitor to a DSLR cage. I had been using a cine arm but screwing it in every time I built the camera. This think securely locks into place and allows me to detach and go. Expensive, but worth it. It came with a variety of different bolts and things to use on various types of equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great The Cine Arm is really well made and locks my on-camera monitor securely to the desired position. The Cine Lock kit saves a lot of time from having to hassle with assembly. It's definitely worth the price.
