Zamerican, V3 Small 6 inch articulating arm is made with chrome balls for silk movement, aluminum ends for rust reduction and stainless steel to increase strength and reduce bulk. The central red knob controls the central pivot point and the ball joints on either end of the arm.

Zacuto articulating arms end in threaded 15mm female rod ends. This ‘Z-Release’ technology allows you to use any of our Z-Release mounts to quick release between your accessories and the articulating arm. No more screwing and un-screwing and no more coming loose. Our Zacuto quick release red levers (often ratcheting levers) make set up and break down as well as quick moves on set a breeze.

You can see all our Z-Release mounts here.

Some popular mounts include :
Z-Mount 2 to attach the arm to a 15mm rod
ZicroMount 3 to attach a ¼ 20 accessory like a monitor
Q-Mount to space two rods and attach the arm securely between the rods

So glad I got this.
I got this to replace a Pearstone arm I was using with an attached spud. It was problematic for a number of reasons. But this thing is a tank; it holds like crazy and I love the tightening knob...perfect size for me. Worth it!!

I love this device as it has ball joint on both ends. We started with the silver Z-arm that only 1 ball joint on one end. With 2 ball joints, one on each end you have so many more more variations of mounting options. We use it for monitors, sound recorders and even cue cars for talent to read their lines! The red knobs securely locks this device in place un-like the 1/4 20 friction arms that are always unlocking and turning.

On one occasion one of our cameras came off the quick release plate and I caught and save a fully rigged camera by this z-arm without the arm even moving...Amazing Arm

Zacuto makes the best arms on the market
These arms are by far the best I've used. The hold is incredible and the QR functionality of the rod based system is so much easier to rig and break down.

I like the short arm because I like my rigs compact. It also helps to keep the real estate short. But the long arms are great when you need more reach.

Works on the Sony FS7
When purchased with the also very handy ZicroMicro, the Zamerican V3 Small articulating arm is a very sturdy, easy to use product that holds smaller monitors. It's perfect for the little Sony FS7 monitor if you buy the Sony FS7 Recoil. The Zamerican V3 can be removed nearly instantaneously from my camera rig to be stowed away in a bag. It's quick to adjust too while mounted, though take care not to loosen the ball joint too much if you have anything heavy attached. Monitors can tumble over pretty quick when the arm is fully loosened.

Overall, I'm pretty pleased with the use and construction of this purchase, with only two slight negatives: you can't natively mount the Zamerican arms to many things - they do require a female 15mm rod attachment, such as the various Zicro mounts or a threaded 15mm receiver. Also, adjusting the arm to get a monitor at just the right angle can be fiddly, but I think that is a fault of all of these type of monitor arms.

Perfect for Odyssey 7Q+
We had been using the longer Z-arms and a Z-rail to mount our 7Q+ to our C100 Next Generation Recoil rig. The weight of the Odyssey supported at the far end of the Z-arm would cause a great amount of torque on the arm sometimes resulting in the monitor swinging around if everything had not been tightened fully. We changed to this new setup using the small Z-arm, a Q-mount, rails and a Zicromount 3. The shorter length of the Z-arm keeps everything very compact. Also, the Odyssey can be tilted in any direction and also spun to be viewable from either side of the camera.

Works great!
