Handy Boom

By

I have 4 of them. That says it. You can use it as normal stand, or give it a flip and convert it to a boom.

EXCELLENT Boom Stand

By

from Glenville, New York  -  Photo Enthusiast

I own two of these and will be purchasing a third.They serve as my general use light stands for off camera flash. Usually have Nikon SB-700's attached via an adapter and used with either Lastolite umbrella's or the Photek Soflighters. Whether using as a regular light stand or as a boom they operate perfectly. They are very easy to switch from a standard vertical stand into a horizontal boom arm and all you need is some weight to counterbalance your chosen load. Manfrotto makes a great bag for this that allows you to add your own weight and comes with a built in hook to connect to the nicely provided hole in the boom arm. Highly recommend this gear.

great boom for my DIY Beauty dish 20

By

from Signal Hill, ca  -  Photo Enthusiast

This boom works pretty good with my 20" diY combo with my sb900. it takes a little getting used to, over all I'm happy with the purchase. Must use counter weight. I needed a least 15lbs for my combo.

High Quality and Versatile - Buy it!

By

from Utica, NY  -  Photo Enthusiast

I use this primarily to position a hair light for portraits. But, it can serve as an ordinary light stand if needed. Its real versatility comes from its top section that easily converts to a sturdy boom. I use a small canvas bag containing anywhere from 2-1/2 to 15 pounds of bar-bell weights as a counterweight. The lower end of the boom has a convenient hole where you can use an S-hook to hold a counterweight bag. This top quality convertable boom stand lives up to the high quality I have come to expect from Bogen/Manfroto. The only negative (which is not really a negative for me) is it is quite tall when folded. If you use it as a regular light stand, it would be too tall for some specialized uses, like a background light holder, but it is not designed for that anyway.

Questions about this item:

JEFFREY B  Is this capable of attaching a 50" Wescott reflector? Thanks
MARK R  The Manfotto documentation states that it will handle 2KG at max extension and 20KG at minimum documentation. I would say that is fairly accurate.
Shopper  Does anyone know if this will fit a giant softbox (about29x59") and strobe? Total weight is between 6-7 lbs.
LLOYD L  yes it will, the boom will flex a bit if you are fully extending it and it will wobble around for a while after adjusted, bit it will hold so long as you sandbag it in a couple places. I don't recommend doing this if you have the money for something better but i use it every day
