Earlier this year, Elgato announced a lighting system that can be attached to a desk to make it easier for YouTube creators, Twitch streamers and other online content makers to light up their home configurations.
Today, by announcing the Multi Mount, Elgato takes that idea a step further, an extensible, multi-purpose rigging system creators can use it for their lighting, cameras, mics, or whatever they want to mount..
Pricing & Features:
The basic $49.99 Multi Mount can be extended up to 45 inches, clamps to a desk, and has a one-fourth-inch center ball head that can be mounted on.
If you want to pay for more accessories, you can make the Multi Mount do more: a $39.99 “flex arm” that can bend at three different spots with a horizontal reach of up to 9.45 inches, a 10.6-pound, $39.99 weighed base that allows you to place the Multi Mount on a flat surface, and a $14.99 smartphone clamp that allows you to clamp.
The Multi Mount looks like a handy tool that allows you to make the setup that works best for you, allowing you to easily do things like placing a camera high above a desk for an unboxing video or a microphone near their podcasting face. However, if you want the Multi Mount with all the accessories, it will cost you $144.96, almost three times as much as you would pay for the no-frills version.
