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.

Used this to mount a Small HD 502 monitor (=9oz!!) on my Pilotfly H2 gimbal. Within 2-3 hours of use (simple positioning, tightening in place, mounting between my slider and gimbal twice) the ball joint came parts in my hands. Not good engineering inside the ball joints. Was the right size for what I wanted, although a little heavy.

Works for light weight devices

By Chris

Verified Buyer

Comments about Pearstone 7.5" Articulating Arm:

Works as you'd expect, but seriously, if you want to mount (for example) a mini monitor and not have it slip around as you move, consider something a little more high end. The locking on this will only hold 100 grams or so before it micro-slips

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.

      Smaller, tighter arm for keeping a rig with attachment compact. Used for little Ninja on handheld rig to keep it close and unwieldy

          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.

                  Comments about Pearstone 7.5" Articulating Arm:

                  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

                      Great and practical product. I use it for my DSLR monitor, and I can adjust any monitor angle on tripod. Quality and price are on their proper place.
