horizontal tripod arm
May 13, 2012

I needed to get a shot of some very tiny insect eggs the other day and wanted to use my reversed lens setup but needed the camera on the tripod for stability.Plus, I had to get real close in and I couldn't do it with the standard tripod setup. I have been looking at the horizontal extension arms but they are all designed for the camera to be mounted in the "point down" position, whereas I need one with a mount for straight out horizontal shots. I have a Manfrotto tripod and does anybody know who makes an arm where you can mount the camera to shoot straight out?
Can anybody help me on this or has anybody even fabricated their own version?
All suggestions appreciated!
