Professional Photographer Magazine honors Innovative Articulated Arm.

Manfrotto, the world’s leading manufacturer of photographic support products, is proud to announce the Articulated Arm with Camera Bracket among the select group of 2005 Hot1 award winners from Professional Photographer Magazine.

The prestigious Hot1 Awards honors professional photographic products that are revolutionizing today’s imaging industry, and is given to a product for its exceptional quality, innovation, design and performance.

“The Professional Photographer magazine Hot1 Awards represent a must-have list of this year’s hottest, most sought-after new products,” said Jeff Kent, Special Hot1 Awards Editor and Editor at Large of Professional Photographer magazine. “The awards are selected by a panel of working professional photographers, and are chosen based on innovation, overall quality and value for price.”

With the development of the inventive and multitalented two-section 196B-2 Articulate Arm with Camera Bracket, Manfrotto has provided photographers with a user-friendly lighting accessory to assist in their many projects. This adaptable arm supports 1.5 kg (3.3 lbs) at full extension, and weighs only 0.53 kg (1.17 lbs). Extra versatility is also given by the sliding extension system which allows for easier positioning of lighting fixtures even in awkward and tight spaces. The Articulated Arm has a maximum length of 60.5 cm (23.8 inches), and the bottom 16mm (5/8") spigot (compatible with the Superclamp), has a 1/4" thread.

Professional Photographer, the official magazine of the Professional Photographers of America, helps readers advance careers in the photographic industry. Each issue contains practical yet cutting edge lessons for both the business and artistic sides of professional photography.

Manfrotto is proud to be the recipient of the Hot1 Award for the Articulated Arm.
