Is it just me, or does she have the arm in backwards on the socket block?

She's shooting into a mirror.

She's shooting into a mirror, which only says she's a regular op, rather than goofy. Doesn't help with the socket block question. I can't be sure, but I believe the socket block is in correctly, and the hinge is just folded forward. i don't think it could go in backwards far enough to not fall out.

The arm is designed to come apart and the pin that holds it together is in the piece she is wearing.

Any question about the mirror can be answered (other than why is she shooting the person taking her picture) by the fact that Steadicam is right side up but backwards, reading right to left. An image flop would have it writtin left to right, top to bottom.

I'm really not sure why any of us (myself included) care. :P

My favorite part about this listing is how 2 of the 3 photos are exactly the same, except in one she smiles, the other she doesn't. Showing the product doesn't seem too important to her, though she seems like a pleasant girl..
