"Great Buy...i approve...Very portable with the nice carrying bags....Portrait Photography... Problems Encountered: Tightening levers on the stands need to be tightened well otherwise they will fall, even under no weight of a background.The studs on the top of mine either came bent, or bend to easily from weight, not sure which, so check when you get it.One thing I didn't realize when I bought this (My own fault) is that the sections aren't telescopic, so you have set widths and nothing else.The areas I use this in are usually a a few inches on the short side to "

The Photoflex ProDuty BackDrop Support Kit includes a BackDrop Pole, two 2320Y LiteStands, and a rugged carry bag to hold the whole kit.

The BackDrop Pole is a single-unit with telescoping sections that constructs easily with a twist and pull motion to extend each section and another twist to lock in place. The Pole stores collapsed at 4' 7" and extends to 12.5'.

Each 2320Y LiteStand extends to 12' high. The extra height afforded with these stands means you can shoot your model from a low angle without seeing the top of the backdrop in your shot. These are exceptionally sturdy stands with a maximum load rating of 40 pounds. The "flip-top" design of the brass post adds versatility for multiple uses in your studio. The kit weighs 17 lbs.

B&H # PLPMPMT1009 MFR # 1009

The Platypod Pro Max Camera Support is a wide, stable, and ultra low-profile platform that allows you to set up a large tripod head, camera, and lens on both horizontal and vertical surfaces.

Measuring 5.3 x 7.8" and only 0.2" thick, the Pro Max Camera Support allows you to photograph or record with a camera that is elevated only slightly higher than the tripod head it is used with. Four reversible, spiked feet that each feature rubber tips on one end can be distributed among five strategically placed, 1/4"-20 threaded holes. Once installed, they can be adjusted to level the platform on uneven surfaces, both indoors and out. For placement on unconventional surfaces and angles, two 2-inch belt shots allow the Pro Max Camera Support to be secured to a cylindrical object or to be taped onto angled floors. Two nail holes are included for permanent or semi-permanent mounting to walls, boards or ceilings; and for quick placement and removal from conventional tripods or quick release devices, 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded holes are on the underside of the platform.

When the spike feet and their locking nuts are not in use, a magnetized storage box holds them against the top of the Platypod Pro Max Camera Support. Able to hold up to 300 lb, the Platypod Pro Max Camera Support accepts tripod heads with 3/8"-16 mounts, and is constructed from anodized, aluminum-alloy for durability and corrosion resistance.

Reversible spigots with 1/4" and 3/8" mounting posts are included, allowing you to use the stands with other gear when not using the crossbar. It all fits in a provided deluxe padded case.

B&H # RESR500 MFR # SR-500

Revo's Video Shoulder Support allows you to keep your DSLR or camcorder fixed steady on your shoulder and will enable you to steadily maneuver the camera, while keeping it focused on a subject.

The rig is both affordable and highly effective, as it wraps tight around your shoulder and balances against your chest, thus providing fixed steadiness. The shoulder mount and chest brace components (the top and bottom parts) are connected by a strong spring-loaded mechanism that causes the two to firmly press against your body vertically. At the same time, a shoulder strap wraps tightly around you horizontally.

The spring-load tension is adjustable by a knob on the side, and the shoulder strap is length-adjustable, so that both can be loosened, to a point at which hand support will be required. Conversely, the tighter you set these, the more fixed the rig will be on your shoulder -- tight enough that you can operate the rig hands-free. This is ideal if you're shooting an event, because you can rest your hands when there's nothing to shoot. Both the shoulder and chest components are foam padded and are made of high-density plastic.

Integrated at shoulder level is a camera baseplate. Included complimentarily are a long plate that attaches to the baseplate and a riser that can attach to the long plate and bring the camera to eye level. Knobbed 1/4" screws are included for attaching these to one another and for mounting a camera. The long plate will extend your camera out about six inches, while also raising it about an inch. The riser will raise your camera approximately three more inches. The riser features a mini quick-release plate that is removable with the flip of a lever. All the plates have rubber pads on them to better support the camera. The rig folds in half and packs into a supplied soft carrying bag.
