It Works Well
It doesn't look like it can hold a full frame DSLR with a 70-200 f2.8 lens, but I thought I would buy it anyway. If it didn't work out I had a spare ballhead I could use, and the friction arm will come in handy somewhere else. Outcome? I am happy with the purchase. It affords holding the camera and lens at a wider variety of heights and angles than a typical mini tripod with ball head can. That's it's main attraction for me. I have used it for macro photography a couple of time with great results. It does hold my Z7 and 70-200 f2.8 rig (5.5 lb) reasonably well. You have to position the arm so the center of mass is over the tripod base and crank down hard. You'll have to use a remote release because the setup will shake with vibration. but it does work. I gave it 4 stars because the Arca-type clamp's knob was over tightened when I took it out of the box. I had to use tools to break it free. I also added a tiny bit of grease to the knob's thread, and the friction arm's knob's tread (not the friction arm balls!). This improved it's ability to operate smoothly and clamp down better. After I did this I love the way this works. It holds the camera and 105mm macro lens in almost any position now with confidence. I would buy it again.

I am very interested in low angle photographic images. Landscape and macro, and ultra Wide low angle photography. I purchased this to be ultimately used with a Nikon 19mm PCE lens.. I have just received this item and will write a complete review in the near future. Thank you pro media gear for excellent products and service.
