    Tripod arm to support camera bed

    Manfrotto (Bogen) used to make an arm that attached (clamped) to the leg of the tripod and extend up to support and extended bed of a camera.

    For life of me I can't remember the name of that specific arm. I know some were called a reticulation(sp) arm but I am not certain that the name of this specific arm.

    I would like the name so I may try to find one on the used market.

    Thanks for any help.

    Perhaps it is this one you mean (Manfrotto 359 lens support):

    Happened to remember that Alex Timmermans uses one.

    Manfrotto 122B can be made into the same support, add superclamp and tiny ball head

    I think it's the »Manfrotto 359 Long Lens Support«

    Thank to everyone for your reply's.

    Unfortunately the Manfrotto 359 Long Lens Support is no longer available at B&H Photo.

    In response to Tin Can's response, in 1993 I closed my studio and sold off most of the lighting equipment.
    I dug around in my equipment cabinet and found a Bogen 3104 light support. It appears to be very similar to the Manfrotto 122B that you mentioned. I also found a small ball head so it looks like I have some of the parts already. I see on eBay there are superclamps available for not too much money, I will most likely buy one.

    Now the final problem is the pivot stud that attaches to the support arm and the super clamp.
    I am thinking of trying a lighting store or a plumbing store to see if they have something that can be adapted.
    Do you folks have a suggestion where I may find one or a suggestion on how to resolve the issue?

    Thanks again

    I think it might be you need 3 to have one functional.
