Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: CowboyStudio Boom Stand Extension 7 feet Arm with Grip Head (Electronics)
I needed a boom for a lighting set up I wanted to use. I had the lighting stand already so I bought this to attach to it. Does it work? Yes. Is it a pain in the neck to use? Yes again. It is difficult to adjust once you have your softbox, umbrella, whatever, attached to it so you better be sure of your set up.
I have since discovered the Promaster LS-6 boom stand and I've purchased two of those. The set up is easy, the adjustment is easy and the cost is the same as you would pay for a light stand plus this attachment and it can be used as a standard light stand or a boom. If you are serious about a boom light stand go with that instead.
