The Impact 12' Background Support System will support seamless paper up to 11' in width, as well as accommodate the 12' width of any brand of muslin background. Total weight distributed across the length of the crossbar should not exceed 20 lb.

The system consists of 2 heavy-duty professional support stands with 3 positive locking knobs and tubular legs, a sturdy 4 piece crossbar that snaps together with positive button locking devices, and a heavy-duty canvas carry bag.

It is suggested to secure the stands with gaffer tape, or weight bags when using any background setup where there are several people, or active children on the set.

"I like!...not bad...This isn't going to win and strength contest, it also isn't going to put up with a ton of abuse...but if you need a travel ready background support at a great price, look no further!...The thing I like most about this system is the crossmember can be assembled with either 2, 3, or 4 of the included sections which means you can adjust from 6' wide up to 12' wide."

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.

"Love it!...Nice kit...It is a very strong and well built system, easy to set up and take down, and the carrying case seems pretty capable as well....I unpacked my new back ground support system and it was out of the box less than an hour when one of the light stands snapped off at the top when the cross bar, with a new roll of 107 paper fell."

The Manfrotto Heavy Telephoto Lens Support is designed to allow a telephoto lens and camera combination weighing up to 44.1 lb to be easily tilted and locked into place. It features a swing positioned inside a frame that can be attached to tripods or other support systems with a 3/8"-16 mount. Pushing a lens and camera placed on the swing raises the front of the lens upward, while pulling the lens and camera points the front of the lens towards low-angle subjects.

A telephoto lens with an integrated foot or lens collar that is compatible with a 1/4"-20 or 3/8"-16 mount can be connected to the included 357PLV Quick Release Plate, which measures 2.2 x 5.5 x 0.5" and has a rubberized, non-slip surface. The quick release plate and the attached lens can then be set and locked within the 357PL Quick Release Adapter at the center of the Manfrotto Heavy Telephoto Lens Support's swing, which is attached to both sides of the frame using two screw-in locking knobs. While loosened, both locking knobs allow a lens and camera placed on the swing to be pushed and pulled until the desired angle is obtained. The locking knobs can then be tightened, preventing further movement of the swing.

Before a telephoto lens is secured to the Manfrotto Heavy Telephoto Lens Support, the locking knobs can be fully unscrewed and removed from the frame, which also detaches the swing. Three pairs of threaded screw holes each along both sides of the swing allow it to be elevated or lowered relative to the frame. Higher swing positions can provide a lens and camera with additional height when needed, while the lowest position can be maintained to help maximize stability.

"Wow !...Good deal...The quick release plate is very long, but, it's length allows you to slide the lens forward or back so that it can balance perfectly on the head and won't tip either up or down unless you make it do so....With the ball head loosened enough to permit pan & tilt, if I let go or loosened my grip on the camera, the heavy telephoto lens would flop down, pulling the camera, tripod and everything else down with it."

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.

"Love it...Very good...Opening up the support to it full extent my camera would be aimed about 15 to 20 degree off horizontal....Also was able to take the support off and get some interesting angles by just holding it."

"love it...Good buy...Although I find the support functional, the crossbar did not fit on the vertical supports without a bit of modification to the studs....So needless to say I didn't get to really practice with it but you don't really need to, it set up quickly and easily and it is really lightweight, if I were going to use it outdoors I would recommend weighting it down, the bag that is included works like a charm everything fits back in it with out a fuss!!"

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.

"Good product...Just love it!...This is a great addition to my camera bag, enabling me to shoot at ground level, perfect for placement on a rock or log when shooting landscapes and waterfalls - quicker and easier setup than using a tripod and more unique camera angles....Great product for when you need support but a tripod just won't work."
