Manfrotto Mini Boom Arm Reviews
perfect for me
This arm is really useful for my home setup where I do livestreams and shoot videos. The threads on the end make it easy to mount mics or small lights. it comes with these nice rubber caps to screw over the ends when you're not using the threads. I have a stand that has a boom clamp thingy, so it works well.

love it and it fits my needs perfectly
Works, good value
I wouldn't try using this boom arm for strobes but I used it with a speedlight,, works well and it was my original intention to use it for speedlights,,, very inexpensive solution when you don't feel like using a c-stand with a grip arm,,, good for a normal portable lightstands and speedlights
Does what it says...is what it is... Love Manfrotto!!!
Great Small boom arm
Great boom arm, it is only 43 inches but, is long enough for many uses in studio or on location. It is a lightweight boom arm designed to use with the newer smaller more compact strobe heads and it is very well made. You will need to have your own counter weight setup as this is a boom only. I own several other larger Manfrotto booms so, if you are using heavier strobe heads and need a lot of length then choose another boom.
Versatile and practical
Not to small, build quality is excellent and a reasonable price. There are so many uses for this mini boom. I wonder what took me so many years to finally buy a few of these. You do need to use these in conjunction with a light stand and clamp of some kind.
Just what I needed!
Needed a way to mount a shotgun microphone to an overhead rod, but couldn't figure out how to drop the mic down low enough to speak into. This Manfrotto boom arm was perfect! Has threads on both ends so you can mount one end to a clamp, the other to a microphone or camera, or whatever you need. Simple, well made, love it. Only thing that would make it better would be a telescoping function (like a shower rod) to adjust length, but for me this length was perfect.
Expensive pole, but a nice pole
Came in the mail with a slight bend, probably because of the packaging. Had been shipped in a long flat-pack, and likely had another box placed on top of it at some point. Maybe B&H should send in a more substantial container, but it hasn't affected the performance of the item. Just a minor annoyance.
