    Manfrotto 098B reviews

    098B Wall Mounting Boom Arm, Black - 47.2-82.6" (1.2-2.1m) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 26.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rock Steady I set up a portrait studio in my garage. As a retire Navy photographer, I'm use to working with limited spaces. I knew I couldn't use a boom on a light stand for my hair light because of my limited space. I did a search on B&H and came across the wall mount. It was cheaper than a boom and stand to mount my 9 pound light and softbox. I found the studs and mounted the boom to the wall in under 10 minutes I was up and running. I found it really easy to position the light with this arm. I will be purchasing an additional one for loop lighting positioning of my main light instead of a traditional light stand. I absolutely love this product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better Have a Sturdy Wall! I use this boom arm for both canon speedlights with umbrella modifiers & my White Lightning x1600 monolights. It's great. It does need to be anchored to something legit though. . . don't think this thing is gonna hold up any sort of load if you aren't anchored into a stud or some other sturdy anchor point. Also, the arm that controls the up/down tilt has a fixed tension, so it's not the kind of thing where you can just crank down harder to hold heavy loads. It either holds it or it doesn't. As always, Manfrotto's instructions are either non-existant or simply not there.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for small spaces I shoot every day in my small woodshop and I kept tripping over the tripod. This mount allows me to position my camera at an infinite number of positions to capture every corner and angle of my shop. The long, telescoping boom arm is really stable and the included clips capture your cords and keeps them organized. I paired this with a ball and socket tripod head to allow even more adjustability to the camera angle

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clutter buster, Nomore tripping on light I saw a version of the Manfrotto wall mount arm, actually the Auto version with a spring loaded balancer, I did some research and found the 098B wall mount boom arm. This item was much cheaper, and had the features I needed up/down horizontal. the length of the boom is adjustable though theres a maximum weight limit on the end of the boom. I use an manfrotto autopole to support the boom arm though it's probably not recommended, but it gives more options to locate different light sources. I would use a pack/head light setup with umbrella. The profoto D1 I have seems to be a bit heavy at max. extension

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality I am currently using the boom arm attached to an Autopole2 and it is rock solid. The build quality shows in the smooth adjustments and strong hold. I have no doubt I'll be picking up a couple more for the studio.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice, but didn't meet my expectations I bought this for my school's tv studio to hold a flourescent light so I could eliminate a stand in my classroom. Without any weight on it, it works perfectly smoothly but put any weight on it and it is difficult to extend and retract. I had planned on getting one for my photography studio if it worked well, but I'm reconsidering it now that I have one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my little studio! This is my second Manfrotto boom mount, and I absolutely love it. I love that I can free up my floor space. I plan on using it for my hair light and for my beauty dish. Well worth the money. One thing to does take some getting use to maneuvering it around when you have it fully extended or nearly extended, but that is to be expected when you have that extra weight at the end, so I am not deducting any starts for it. My studio room is 12 ft wide and works perfectly for me.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wall Mounting Boom Arm I've used one of these for 6 years and have really liked it. It saves a lot of space in my studio--virtually all the space that would be taken up by a floor stand is available for something else, it moves easily, and there's not the hassle of running over cords. I like that the extension bar is now much sturdier than the one on my old boom. I wish movement on the x-axis could also be tightened with a handle like on the y-axis so the mounting plate could be attached to the wall horizontally, since the studs behind the desired location on my wall only run horizontally. It could also be much improved with a ball joint or universal joint and more clearance for the handles, because it can be quite complicated and challenging to point an attached softbox at certain angles the way it is currently designed.
