Ultimate Tethered Photography Workstation: Manfrotto Tripod Accessory Arm

Posted by: on Feb 1, 2012 | One Comment


We’re stoked that our friends at Manfrotto are participating in the Tether Tools Top 20: Start the New Year off Right contest! They realized you could simply mount the Tether Table on the awesome Manfrotto Tripod we included early on, or they could help you step up your game even more. So, they’re adding the option to mount your laptop and camera on the same tripod with the Manfrotto 131DDB Horizontal Tripod Accessory Arm with 4 heads. It easily mounts onto the center column of the Manfrotto tripod using its 3/8″ threads.

The arm features 4 heads with 3/8″ thread pins, providing versatility and flexibility for mounting cameras, Tether Tables and various other accessories. We suggest putting your Tether Table and computer on one end of the cross bar and adding the ballhead to the other end so that you can mount your camera. In addition to the 496RC2 Compact Ball Head, the Manfrotto 190XB Tripod also features the 200-PL-14 Quick Release Plate system, so you can quickly release your camera from the tripod and increase your shooting flexibility in an instant.

This setup is getting super versatile! So far you have the following tethered photography gear:

  • Manfrotto 190XB Tripod and 496RC2 Compact Ball Head
  • Tether Table Aero with ProPad
  • Secure Strap
  • External Drive Compartment (XDC)
  • TetherPro High-Visibility Orange USB Cable
  • JerkStopper Tethering Kit
  • Think Tank Pixel Sunscreen
  • Manfrotto 131 DDB Tripod Accessory Arm

Now you’re ready to shoot! In your share post today, tell us what or who is on your bucket list to photograph before you die!

One thought on “Ultimate Tethered Photography Workstation: Manfrotto Tripod Accessory Arm”

  1. Good morning:
    I’d like to know how to reverse my Manfrotto Tripod Ascessory Arm to face in the opposite direction, so the the 3 lock handles face in a way so that my laptop and camera are reversed with the laptop is placed on my right side, and the camera is placed on the left side as I stand behind the tripod. Is there some way that I can take this off or unscrew this configuration?

    Thank you,
    Kamal Abdus-Salaam
