Wooden Camera has introduced the Universal Ultra Arm for your camera monitor, now with ARRI locating pins and customizable lengths. This is great addition to the Ultra Arm line-up with some much-anticipated improvements over the current design.

Universal Monitor Arm – in Four Lenghts

The Wooden Camera Universal Ultra Arm is a versatile professional articulating arm with a centre double ball clamp and universal standard size (1/4″-20 and 3/8″-16) interchangeable knobs. These are paired with non-slip rubber pads on each end.

In addition, the package includes 4 x locating pins, which can be installed in either a SmallHD or ARRI configuration to mount compatible devices. Furthermore, the new Universal Ultra Arm is available in four sizes – Mini, 3″, 5″, and 8″ lengths. 

Interchangeable Ultra Ball 

Another new feature in the Universal Ultra Arm is the new interchangeable Ultra Ball, which has inserts for easy swapping between a 1/4″-20 to a 3/8″-16 screw. And the cool part is that both screws are included in the Universal Ultra Arm Combo.

Swappable Standard Mounting Screws: 1/4-20 – 3/8

The Universal Ultra Arm makes it very simple and safe to adjust your on-camera monitor be it the new SmallHD Indie 7 or another on-camera monitor of your choosing.

These new arms will also work really nice with wireless transmitters and other compact camera accessories that would otherwise be dangling on the side of your rig. 

New Universal Ultra Arm – New Features:

  • Interchangeable Ultra Ball Joint – update your existing Ultra Arms
  • Swappable 1/4″-20 and 3/8″-16 screws 
  • ARRI Locating Pins (also SmallHD configuration possible) to prevent monitor wiggle
  • Customizable lengths – available in 4 different lengths
    • Mini, 3-inch, 5-inch, and 8-inch

Pre-order: SmallHD Indie 7 with RED Komodo Control ($250 OFF)

New – Wooden Camera Ultra Arm Customizer

The Wooden Camera website has an easy Ultra Arm Customizer – that lets you select your own tool-less articulating Ultra Arm by selecting the length and both end mounts from our list of available options.

Be aware that the Length refers to the centre Ultra Arm Double Ball piece and not the total length of the arm. Mini Ultra Arms include a single Double Ball Clamp and no centre length. 

In addition, you can also use existing 3rd party 25mm ball systems, which are also compatible with the new Universal Ultra Mount system. 

The Wooden Camera Ultra Arms have been around for a while, and you can see how they can improve your camera rig in this demo video by Wooden Camera below:
