    Impact BHE-117 reviews

    2 Section Double Articulated Arm without Camera Bracket is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as sturdy as I would have thought I own a Manfrotto 244 Magic Arm and was looking for a similar functioning arm with a little versatility. I thought this 2 Section Double Articulated arm would be a good fit. The same is made under a couple of other brand names like Manfrotto, I chose the Impact branded version as it was cheapest and I have had good experiences with their other products. The first thing that struck was how light weight the unit felt. Next I noticed that the handles and clamp portions of the arm are made of plastic. I connected the arm to a super clamp and decided to try hanging a 3.5 lbs field monitor off of the unit. I was disappointed to see that the arm sagged. The tightening handles only seem to tighten to one spot - it's more of an off/on tightener as opposed to a progressive resistance tightening system. All in all I was disappointed with how flimsy this arm felt. It works but I was kind of hoping for the type of sturdiness I got from my Manfrotto 244. This arm does not inspire a lot of confidence. It works but it is not as sturdy and solid as it looks in the picture. I don't think this is particular to Impacts version of this arm and I suspect the other branded arms of the same design would perform in a similar manner.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Redundant I purchased this platform to attach a camera to my Impact Flex Arm without realizing that the Flex already has a 1/4 thread that I could use to attach my camera so this purchase was redundant. It is a well made product and could be used to convert your light stand into a tripod.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's good Buy this platform to hold the camer's arm pivot of the same brand Impact, because he needed to place a photo camera high. The construction is a bit weak, but for the price I can not complain.Camera Platform for Flex Arm, Pivot Arm & Impact 20 are an excellent combination.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Strong and Versatile I love this arm! I use this in conjunction with the “Impact Super Clamp wih Rachet” to attach my GH4 to a mic stand for a static Drummer shot during our worship services. It is easy to adjust and make the camera level. Very sturdy!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very sturdy and a great value A great way to get a camera or a light into places where a tripod can't/won't go. The double-arm is very sturdy and will hold a Canon 5D Mk3 securely. For most effective use, order with an Impact Super Clamp, CC-106T or CC-106R.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Decent Product for the Price I purchased this item for use with a Manfrotto Variable Friction Arm, model 2929. The two products work well together. The Impact plate appears to be made of cast Aluminum. It has a rubber/plastic? area for camera bottom protection which also helps to grip the camera to prevent twisting. In conjunction with the camera mounting bolt there are two knobs, perfect for setting the correct depth for mounting and preventing damage to the camera tripod mounting hole by over extension. With two knobs one can securely tighten a camera to the plate. Included on the bottom of the plate is a 3/8 to 1/4 reducing adapter. Each plastic knob for attaching the plate to a pin or stud is easily grasp for rotation. There are two 17mm or 10/16 holes for a standard stud. One of these hole at 90 degrees has a 10mm hole which fits my light stands without need for a stud. Without an additional ball head, or other 2 or 3 axis variable head, or arm, a mounted camera to the plate is very limited in positioning your composition, so buy this product with that in mind. I am satisfied with my purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super useful I'm really impressed by the quality of this item. Each of the knuckles only turn about 1/2 or 1/4 turn, but it elegantly locks everything in position... very solid.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nicely made I have been happy with most of the items I purchased from Impact and this is one of them. Well made and durable.
