Bought two of these to try out to see if they could hold without sagging. Tested using camera and lens and large speedlight in awkward positions. Both held without any give. Just ordered more.
I needed a 'Magic Arm' and remembered that ProMediaGear makes them- and got one off B&H with some other stuff. Honestly I didn't even bother looking elsewhere or for something cheaper- I just want one that will work perfectly. PMG has a fantastic reputation for a reason. This arm has an impressive level of hold and stiffness. The inclusion of adapters is very welcome. Many different uses- small monitor, small lights, hold something in a specific position, etc- mount to just about anything if you attach to a mini super clamp or similar.
I do a lot of shooting from different angles, not just from tripods. Using brackets hanging from the the ceiling..etc. The A12 is just perfect, the build quality is great, strong, durable and I have no problem trusting this piece of hardware with any of my camera gear or equipment!
Added this to the apex of the pro series tripod to fix a laser range finder or mobile device. It is very well made and functional.
