Manfrotto has launched new compact support accessories targeted at videographers who need to mount video accessories to a tripod or camera cage.

The 244MICRO-AA kit incorporates three elements: The centerpiece is Manfrotto's 244 Micro Friction Arm - a small 15cm-long, two-section arm with ball & socket attachment points at either end. The idea is to mount one end of the arm to a camera cage or tripod, then the other end can be used to mount an accessory such as an external monitor, microphone, or a small LED light. Max payload is a hefty 3kg, and friction is adjustable so you can tailor the arm to work with different payload weights.
