Infinity Arm lets it all hang out

Infinity Arm lets it all hang out

The new Infinity Arm is claimed to be “a reliable and indestructible articulating arm” that can support a wide variety of cameras, lights, monitors or other equipment.

It was developed by director Sage Seb, who said: “I’ve had camera support arms fall apart in the middle of the shoot, with no access to repair or replacement. Trying to make-do costs time – not to mention a l
ot of gaffer tape.”

He decided he needed a camera support arm that he could trust: “that would be reliable, no matter how many times I repeated a move or how difficult the conditions. I needed to be able to hang and mount expensive camera/lens packages and customise the arm to whatever you need to get the job done.”

After launching it as a Kickstarter project, Seb looked for a manufacturer to perfect it, and joined up with Matthews, whose engineers helped
refine it.

The resulting arm can mount everything from a GoPro to a cinema camera or a monitor and many other items. It is made of tool steel and aircraft aluminium, then plated with military-grade anodised and proprietary electroless nickel phosphorus. Its central pivot point includes a 60-section rosette for strength and adjustability. It can also take a wide variety of tips; allowing for quick interchange to support a range of tools.
