The Manfrotto 244 Variable Friction Arm is one of the most popular arms made by Manfrotto! Often called a Magic Arm the 244 is used for lights, camera, and audio applications and is the industry standard for most remote rigging applications. The 244 Variable Friction Arm uses a central friction locking handle to lock all 3 points of the arm in place. The length of the arm is 53 cm/20.87 inches and is capable of holding loads up to 3 kg/6.6 lb. The included 143BKT called a camera umbrella bracket is used for cameras, transmitters, lighting tools like umbrellas, and other small panel lights, strobes, and accessories. Typically the 244 arm is mounted on a Super Clamp but you can also mount it to light stands and other accessories such as wall plates by using the baby 16 mm/ 5/8 inch pin on either end of the arm. The baby pins on each end of the arms also have a 9.53 mm/ 3/8 inch thread receiver or a 6.35 mm/ 1/4 inch threaded receiver. The remote mounting possibilities of this versatile tool are endless!
