Is there a way to mount a light onto the device to illuminate the object underneath? Don't necessarily need a big fancy light, I am photographing rock and mineral specimens. Just trying to avoid shadows and glare and bringing out the natural beauty with a macro lens.
Asked by: Michael
There are no holes or mounting points to attach something to the pole (other than the ball head for the camera). No suitable accessories are shown on the manufacturer's web site either (glidegear.net). Perhaps a gorrilla pod or some clamps will do the trick.

question

I want to use this with a Canon 5D Mark IV for table top photography. Will this handle the weight of the camera and macro lens?
Asked by: Lawrence B.
Yes, the Glide Gear OH50 Overhead Photo and Video Camera Boom Pole would be able to support the weight of the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR Camera and a macro lens for tabletop photography usage needs, though you may wish to use a counterweight on the opposite end of the boom pole.

Will this hold an iPhone or do I need an additional part?
Asked by: Jacob
You will need a camera mounting plate or iPhone holder that screws on to the end of the pole. The end of this boom pole is an adjustable ball joint with a screw. I have an inexpensive plastic iPhone holder, with a spring that adjusts to hold my phone, and I just screw that onto the end. Btw, if you attach a regular camera, I find that you will need more weight on the opposite end to balance it. I use a bag of marbles :). Just saying that the weights that come with the pole aren't heavy enough to balance a full-sized camera. Hope this helps!
