Portable Light Stand

We now have a portable light stand and this is great if you are on the move and travel with your tripods, it is so small and diminutive although the large tube is 29.5mm in diameter.

So with a light stand that will go to 2 metres high yet only measures 530mm when it is folded down. We have also made a video that you can view to show you how the light stand works.

Multi Purpose Boom Arm

The Multi Purpose Boom Arm has been out of stock for too long and we apologise for that but now it is back in STOCK!!

This is a very portable boom arm not only that it can be a 4 metre lightstand I can’t believe anyone needs one as big as that though. It has a softbag for the counter balance which means you dont have to cart around heavy counterbalance weights, just pop in a couple of bottled water containers filled with water, when the shoot is over just empty the water out and you have saved all that weight.

Take a look at the review video by Gavin Hoey he does not like the counterbalance bag but we do. Multi Purpose Boom Arm Video

Also back in stock is the Heavy duty Lightstand 2.8m

We also have 2 other Studio Boom arms if you want something with a fixed counterweight and also one lightweight boom arm.

Large Heavy Duty Boom Arm

Our very large heavy duty boom arm is on special until 15th September, this is really a solid piece of kit and could take the heaviest of use. Once the lighting head is attached its position and angle can be adjusted from the controls at the back using a wheel to change the angle. There is also a handle to adjust for lateral movement to get your light in the perfect position.

It has a 6kg counterbalance weight and can take pretty much any studio flash head or continuous lighting head so wether you are shooting still digital or using for video lighting this stand would last years of heavy use.

Large Heavy Duty Boom Lighting Stand

This large heavy duty boom lighting stand is big and sturdy comes with lockable wheels for easy positioning, it has a 6kg counterbalance weight and takes a hefty 9kg payload.

With large diameter aluminium tubing used throughout this unit will last a lifetime it uses a standard lighting spigot to hold all modern studio flash heads. You can move the boom through 180 degrees and the spigot on the front is controlled from the rear through 90 degrees. This means the studio flash head can be positioned precisely using the steering wheel type control at the back. You will also be glad to know the spigot is removable and has 2 positions.

This model compliments our heavy duty boom light stand which is also value for money. Due to its 2 metre length when packed we can only supply this in the UK.
