    Smith-Victor MB150 reviews

    MB150 2 Section Heavy Duty Boom is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 26.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, but not perfect I use this to help with hair, rim, and background light. It works great when just holding a mono light, but as soon as you start to add modifiers the counter weight is not heavy enough to support them. I use a 4lb mono light with a 17x50 stripbox and had to use an extra weight just so it wouldn't tip over. (the weight it comes with has two parts - one is permanent, and the other is removable. So, I took the weight off one and doubled it on the other! Still not enough weight though) The price is dead-on, but you should look into buying an additional sandbag or two to support the whole rig. It could def. hold it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Make sure you have a good light stand I use this mainly to hold a speedlight/small softbox for hairlights This is definitely a heavy duty unit A heavy duty light stand and sand bags are necessary for this item as it will bow a light duty stand and at full extension it will be easy to tip over.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Heavy Duty? Obviously heavy duty is a relative term, so B&H solved it by calling this heavy duty and lightweight in the product description. So, it's a great midweight boom arm. It's perfect for my use as a hair light with a flash and umbrella. Works very well with the 9-6' light stand. Can be extended with no flex or wobble. It did arrive with one bolt out of the piece that holds the counterweight. Fortunately I found the bolt and nut before throwing the packaging away. They might want to tighten up the quality control.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boom Arm! No complaints whatsoever - great boom ( I paired it with 9.5' Impact Heavy Duty Light Stand). 5 lb counterweight it's perfect and much better than dangling sand bag. I'm a Strobist guy so it holds my Beauty Dish w/SB800 or one of softboxes - and it holds well. I've checked a lot of boom arms, before I got this one and this is the best boom arm for the money. Highly recommended btw. mine is BLACK

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great heavy duty product A really nice boom that holds a good amount of weight. I've used it outdoors as well as indoors and it stands up well to a stiff breeze. I mostly use it with speedlights and softboxes, but recently used it with a monoblock and it held just fine. Highly recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does The Job The concept of boom arms is not complicated, I mean it's a big stick to hold your light up high. Once you start actually rigging the little sucker, though, problems can arise ranging from annoying to downright dangerous/expensive. This unit is sturdy, rigid, and stable, and the adjustable counterweight guarantees that it will stay that way no matter what you hang on it (within reason of course). It has plenty of reach and mounts securely to any good heavyweight stand. I use an Impact 13 footer and I've been very happy with that set-up. Normally in use as a hair light, it has done emergency stand-in work at the local theater with a Fresnel on the end, which is pushing the envelope a bit but speaks well for its durability, stability, and general build quality.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product - Excellent Value Great Boom - I attached it to a standard light stand and use it as a hair light for portrait work. I only use it with my Nikon SB-600 flash and slave adaptor. I have not used anything heavy attached to the boom

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job I bought this for photographing 3D artwork using a speedlight with a 24 softbox attached. I wanted something light but, since I was buying mail order and sight unseen, I wanted to make sure it was sturdy enough. This did the job fine, and it may even handle a monolight. I was disappointed there were no instructions; you might think they're not needed, but sometimes instructions give you tips about the best way to attach or use the counter weight.
