(Lake Mary, Florida--June 27, 2012) Digital Juice® announced today that it is adding a 7-Inch Articulating Arm to its growing line of professional camera accessories. The Digital Juice 7-Inch Articulating Arm is a sturdy, compact multipurpose jointed accessory arm that can be used to mount displays, lights, microphones or other small accessories weighing up to 5lbs on prosumer and professional camcorders and rigs.
The unit consists of two short equal length pivoting arms on a central joint. At the end of each arm is another pivoting joint with a 1/4-20 screw mount end. Each joint can be adjusted independently and then all 3 joints can be simultaneously locked down using the single central locking knob. Either end of the articulating arm can be used to attach accessories or to mount the arm to a camera, tripod, C-stand or other gear.
“Articulating arms allows users to find the best possible viewing or lighting angle when mounting equipment like an external monitor or LED light to their DSLR or video camera rigs,” says Viv Beason, President of Digital Juice. “Our unit includes a shoe mount adapter that will fit on any standard shoe mount to hold your accessories above the camera or you can attach the articulating arm to a rail system, tripod or C-stand leg using the optional Digital Juice Mini Clamp for even more mounting flexibility.”
Because of its smaller size and weight (7 oz / 198g), the Digital Juice 7" arm reduces the torque on your hot shoe, clamp and arm joints, especially when used with a heavier item. “This results in less shake when shooting and less wear and tear on your gear,” says Beason. It is also a great option for stacking together several lights like the Digital Juice MiniBurst 128 and 256 LEDs.
