Very stable

I bought 3 of these for the mini jib (monitor) and for the handheld rig (that holds the monitor and camera light). Holds up to the rigorous movements during production.

I have a DSLR operation. Recently purchased the Marshall 7" monitor, and decided to spoil it with this arm.

I gotta say the arm is OK and lives up its promises,
but I find myself using the mount I got with the monitor more, mostly because it's lighter.

The articulating arm also has a lot of options to manuver - after all it IS articulating ! And sometimes you with to keep it simple.

Comments about Pearstone 7.5" Articulating Arm:

I'm using this to mount my Blackmagic 4K Video Assist Monitor on my Sony F5 Camera. Its the perfect length that's not too long to be in the way of other camera functions.

          I use this to mount either a Zoom H4N or a Sennheiser wireless receiver. The weight on either of those is not an issue, and the movement allows for placement where I need it.

              I've been using Pico Dolly Arms for my monitors and such for years and they do the job, but break easily and wear eventually. This arm has proved to be pretty sturdy and well made so far.

                  I personally use this product to connect to my tripod head, to hold a monitor. I use other accessoires with it too, such as a ZoomH6 recorder. It has been working great for me. Its sturdy and holds everything well.

                  The only downside I wanted to mention, is that there is no rubber pad on the end I screw into my tripod head. There is on the other end. I feel there should be a rubber pad on both ends to provide better hold

                    This thing is great. More solid than I expected. No need to look at the more expensive stuff. This guy is solid and flexible. the hot shoe piece detaches and gives you two 1/4 20 males OR a 1/4 20 male and a 1/4 20 female if thats what you like. Look no further

                        I was looking for something to attach my Marshall monitor to my digital XLR. I needed to something that would allow me raise the monitor above the hot-shoe, and would allow me to move the monitor to the side of the camera. The Pearstone arm did the trick!

                        Used regularly (not heavily) for 2 years with a Marshall monitor mounted on different positions and angles on a Ikan BMCC Rig. Worked well until it came apart for no apparent reason. Considering the price, brand and circumstances of usage, I think it should have lasted longer.

                          I use this often to attach my wireless receiver to my c-100. It keeps it in a location where it doesn't get in the way, and keeps the balance of the camera centered.

                          I also use the arm to secure my 7" monitor to a c-stand. The locking mechanism is solid enough that the monitor doesn't budge even when manipulating buttons on the face.
