    Manfrotto 024B reviews

    Boom Assembly, Black - 6.5' (2m) is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 31.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay for lightweights The 10# counterweight is handy but overkill for the low weight this boom arm will support. The arm bowed significantly under a light setup that a cheap Chinese telescoping boom arm & stand kit never flinched under, and that whole set-up cost thirty bucks less than just the Manfrotto arm by itself (without a necessary stand). And the low weight supported and non-telescoping arm limits it's usefulness for a considerably higher cost. While it's much higher quality and will last longer than the less expensive gear, I believe it's best suited for strobes or very lightweight mono-lights and modifiers, a small lamp or LED used for a hairlight, or perhaps as a stationary boom for a big studio mic or shotgun and blimp.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It is what it is - simple! The boom is what it is...a simple multi-section alluminum rod that gets assembled togehter and you attach your device to one end and counter weight the other side with the weight. I did notice that the overall rod started to bow slightly when i have my LastoLite 30 x 30 soft box on it with the SB910, Flex TT5 and 6 AA's. I am sure that this is normal. I am not too concerned about it breaking as tubing is really strong. I only gave 4 stars, cause of the durability factor...iffy over time. We'll see in a year or two. Origianlly planned this for a 22 beauty dish.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value I had need of putting a light over portrait subjects without the stand being in the way. The Manfrotto 024B boom solves the problem admirably. It comes in three pieces which are easily assembled and tightened up with the provided allen key. The counterweight (10lbs.) is a bit heavy to lug around but it works great. You will need a heavy duty lightstand to attach it to, something with at least a 1 (25mm) shaft. The pivot point assembly is made of metal not plastic like other models I've seen. So far I've found no negatives to this product, a five star experience.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from UPDATE I want to correct one statement I made in my earlier review, clarify one confusing item in the specifications of this unit, and make one suggestion for using this GREAT multi-purpose unit. 1. Correction. You do not need to figure out the attachment system to a pair of stands. One end has permanent fitting, and you use the included clamp for the other stand. Works great. Specification confusion. It says the unit weighs 12.57 pounds. That amount includes the 10 pound counter weight, so the arm and clamp only weigh 2.5 pounds, and 2/3 of that is probably the clamp. Suggestion. The unit assembles and disassembles quickly and easily using recessed allen-headed screws-works great, but if you lose the included allen wrench, ... Solution: Buy a couple of spare allen wrenches from your local hardware store (they only cost pennies) and duct tape a spare to the arm near the handle or to the counterweight.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A 'must have' for studio or location I tend to put a light directly above my head on portrait shoots. No need to work around the stand with this boom in action. A solid and versatile piece of gear every shooter should own.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight, solid We use this boom to support a Qflash head and lightweight softbox on location. The weight get's left behind when traveling but is useful back in the studio. The 3 piece design makes it easy to transport in a stand case and set-up is easy enough. It's useful to tape-over one of the two holes at each section break to avoid loosening both by mistake and having the pieces fall out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I'm using this boom arm with Manfrotto's Alumaster 3-riser 12' stand and it is a very effective combination. The boom arm is easy to use, easy to set up, and breaks down into three small manageable pieces for transport. In my opinion, the counterweight is a must once you hang an umbrella or softbox onto the boom arm. I have also used the counterweight to clamp onto the leg of other lightstands to add a little stability when there is a breeze. The counterweight is a bit of a drag to carry around but I'm very, very happy that it is included with the boom arm.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Well This product works well. Although, it is my first time using a boom, it seems a little pricey for what it is and awkward to set up. I would recommend this product for studio photography that would stay set up, but it would be a little annoying to tear down and set up again for location photography. You will also want to have a sturdy light stand to put this on and at least a sand bag weight.
