Great for lights, not for cameras
Moment Photography, 20.05.2021
Much like the Manfrotto 244N Variable Friction Arm, this is a brilliant bit of kit.

However there is a big and important difference between the two, and that is how they tighten.

Firstly (and less importantly), the lever sticks out somewhat and could get in the way.

Secondly, when you tighten this arm to a locked position, the lever jolts and this is a real issue if you are carefully positioning a camera on the arm and trying to get fine tuned framing.

If you only need a strong arm to roughly position something within a few cms then this is fine. Great for lighting, but if you need to be quite precise, you should buy the Manfrotto 244N Variable Friction Arm. In fact I would go as far as to say, just get the friction arm regardless, as I prefer it.

That said, this lever locking arm is also very solid and it will last a lifetime. It's a great piece of kit that is incredibly useful and easy to use.

very practical, but sometimes a little
Stephan7664, 18.02.2014
This arm is a very practical accessory for mounting anything form a camera to lights/microphones or even as a camera-handle itself. There is one negative to it, though. The mechanism on my copy sometimes when tightening made a cracking noise, and for some time it wouldn't tighten or loosen up as much as it should, which went away after some time. If I need another one, I will get the manfrotto friction arm, which is more expensive, but I can tighten it with a screw mechanism, and not a springy one like on this.

Clever, but needed a quick repair
01.08.2014
These arms are very well built and have a clever mechanism that allows you to position whatever is on the end of it easily with one hand, whilst leaving the other free to lock the arm. The arm locks firm and feels like it would handle a good weight before it moved.
One of mine became stuck shortly after purchase. A search revealed that this is a common fault. I had to open up the centre cam and reposition 3 ball bearings that had jumped out of place. Now working A-ok again. I use mine for positioning radio microphone aerials and for this purpose they are perfect.
