Excellent performance: robustness, lightness and versatility... these are the features of the double articulated arm range. The Manfrotto 396AB-3 3-Section Double Articulated Arm Without Camera Bracket has been developed to provide greater robustness than the 196 range and to support heavier loads (up to 11.02 lbs.), though keeping versatility thanks to its extendable sliding arm system (extends upto 860mm), further enhanced by its quick lock system. The new bottom attachment adds to the strength and versatility of the 396, with a spigot that combines both a hexagonal part (for anti-rotation fixing to the Superclamp system) and a universal adapter section (for fitting to a wide range of stands, clamps and accessories). The top attachment is provided with a 16mm spigot 3/8" light attachment, while the bottom attachment is provided with a double-anchored 16mm hexagonal/universal spigot.
