Manfrotto Combi Boom Stand Reviews
This boom stand is great for smaller teams, sturdy and can also handle its fair share of lights
Excellent usability and quality
Just what you'd expect from Manfrotto!
Auto Assistant for doing Talking Head videos
I know this is not cheap and not something that would be front-of-mind for video equipment purchases. However, this thing thing is awesome! Complete and precise microphone setup with no assistant. It's great for a freelancer like myself. Please be prepared...it's heavy.
The big boy!
Great C-stand, its a beast. Im excited to finally have an assistant I can rely on instead of untrained interns-turned-boom-ops :-D
Well built in this price but there is design issue
The first boom stand I own, compared to premium grade Manfrotto light boom I used as a assistant, product from the same brand at this price range seems like a good deal for me, and the single clamp locking system for positioning the extension arm used as a vertical light stand, holding the swing boom arm angle, also adjust the boom arm left and right to do the balancing seems a fast and easy design... but actually it's not. I am using Elichrome D-Lite 4it mono head with traveler site soft box (not too heavy), before I bought this I know I can't extend the boom arm much which is fine with me, and I like the wider base of the clamp support to the boom arm compare to other brands' yet the actual clamp within to lock the boom arm is the same size. The worst part is when used as a boom stand, the clamp mechanism will first lock the swing angle, next to the left/right position, and last the arm rotation . When holding a light head and soft box the rotation of the arm does not hold until tighten the clamp lock extremely hard with that not too long lever, but when I need to fine tune only the counter balance or swing angels I have to repeat all three positions. Too often we can't try before buying now a day, and this is not what I want but too bad I can't return due to expensive ship back cost. I need to get use to it.
I would by again.
As advertised. Good boom stand I am using for my video camera to get the above angle I was looking for. Well made as Manfroto always is. Easy to use.
I use this for everything. I bought two of them. With the sandbag it’s perfect
It's good but you need a massive counterweight
If you have a full sized studio flash you need a counterweight of twice the weight of your flash. It's a pity the manufacturer fails to stress the importance of a suitable counterweight. Trying to balance the boom arm by tightening the knobs isn't right and won't suffice. The 018 caster wheels aren't good, they just fail to roll straight. In my opinion this boom stand is best for lighter flashes like Godox AD300 and speedlites. If you have the Godox AD600 (Pro) use the flash head head slitter like H600P to leave the massive body down. You can connect to the AD600 body to the base of the boom with a Super clamp and a stud making the stand sturdier.
