Why not just use the 3/8 inch stud fitting to mount a small to medium ball head on the arm. It should simplify the aiming of the camera considerably. You can set the ball head direction to roughly what you want, and then fine tune with the arm for angle, plus of course move the arm extension or move the whole stand for camera positioning. And keep track of the balance of the rig by adjusting the counterweight amount. You do not want your camera to take a dive on to your product.
Thanks. The boom arm has a pin that isn't threaded, so I went with the adapter suggested above that is. Instead of a ballhead, and one more pivot point to make sure is tight, I'll simply mount the ballhead mount plate directly to the adapter, and use the lock nut to make sure it's tight. I'll post a photo of the setup as soon as it arrives, so everyone can see what I am talking about.....
