The Limelight VB-1180 Compact Lighting Boom has a unique parallelogram design that makes it one of the most flexible support tools on the market. One of the more annoying and potentially hazardous aspects of overhead lighting involves the need to adjust the angle of your light source whenever you adjust the height of the boom. The VB-1180 cleverly addresses this problem by using a levering arm to self-adjust the light source's angle to keep it constant during changes in height. Subsequent angle changes are made simple using the handle at the pivot point that allows you 360 degree control of the head extension.

Excellent balance is another feature of the VB-1180's design, allowing you to forgo the anxiety of unlocking, tightening, and re-locking the boom for every adjustment. Once the included 15 lb capacity counterweight bag is in place you can raise, lower and swing the boom at will while it stays put. This aspect allows you try multiple creative positions that you might have abandoned to avoid arduous hoisting.

The VB-1180 weighs only 9.0 lb and comes with an empty 15 lb capacity counterweight bag and a 32" head extension which can be swapped out for 18" or 20" extensions for use in tighter spaces.
