About this product
The Manfrotto 244N Variable Friction Magic Arm differs from the regular Magic Arm in that the Variable Friction Arm allows partial locking in place of a light grip or a camera. This comes in handy when using a light or camera to track a subject. It is a pivot arm with a large locking knob. One end will support a light that has a baby (5/8 inch ) receptor. The other end is designed to fit into a Super Clamp socket or other 5/8 inch receptor.
