I bought a camera bag with some lenses and a camera. This was in the bag but I have no idea what it is or what it is used for.


Any help would be appreciated.

Looks like a "Magic Arm." http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=&sku=553825&Q=&is=REG&A=details

Thanks Steve350 and Paul, I found the exact one on Amazon. See below. I knew someone on here would recognize it.

Thanks so much.

I have a similar one that I got with my SmallHD DP6 HD monitor. It also has a cold shoe mounting that lets you attach it to the camera hot shoe.

Expect some miss fires with your speedlites. With all that torque on the Hotshoe

In normal use, with the DP6 above the camera, there's not much torque, because the rig is quite light. It's fine for "studio" work. OTOH, it destabilizes the whole system, and it does cause a lot of torque on the hot shoe if you carry the rig on tripod, over your shoulder.

Anyway, I don't use it any more. Now I use a super clamp/double ball/A-S clamp on the centre column, or long magic arm, clamped to a tripod leg.
