Default Camera Arm

What do you guys think about this camera arm? I'm looking at getting one for my DVX100B.

Looks fine if your tree is perfectly straight. I don't see any way to adjust it if the tree is leaning.

Yep no adjustment for imperfect trees , also the head on it will give you fits if you want smooth stable footage.

That's a big negatory in my book. No fluid head and really no good way to mount a fluid head, looks like a glorified Gorilla brand camera arm. Get a fluid head!

I've got a huntercam cradle pro for sale. It's a great arm, but I only need one camera arm. Also have a brand new3rd arm tree arm http://www.the3rdarm.com/home.htm. It's not quite what I'm looking for so it's for sale too. I'll keep which ever one doesn't sell. They both have their advantages. I'll take $375 for the HCC pro and $210 for the 3rd arm + actual shipping on both. Both of these arms work great and are stable with most all popular cameras being used now. If you have a decked out xl with wireless mic, xlr adapter.... the hunter cam cradle might be a little challenged. The 3rd arm is verey hefty and can handl alot of camera. Both arms have plenty of vert and horiz adjustment.
