Cambo 99131250 Overview

The Cambo RD-1101 Redwing Compact Boom Arm for Light Fixtures features a 32" boom extension that supports a light fixture up to 26 pounds. The boom moves through 75° of up and down adjustment and is indexed for precise positioning. The head extension rotates 360° and is also indexed for precise positioning. The boom mounts on a standard junior-sized pin.

Built with precision brass bearings that allow for smooth arm movement and positioning, as well as full rotation of the mounted light fixture, the boom includes a counterweight bag and 15 pounds of lead shot. This boom is ideal for location and tabletop photographers, as well as those with limited studio space.

By balancing the light fixture and counterweight, there is no need to lock the boom into position.
Boom angle and head rotation are indexed to allow for precise positioning of your fixture.
The minimized length of the counterweight section makes the boom suitable for smaller studios. It assembles in less than five minutes and requires no tools.

GREAT LIGHTING FLEXIBILITY

This is my second Cambo Redwing Boom. I have the Standard and the Compact (with a 30 extension bar). One on a Matthews Jr. with wheels and the other on a Kupo Jr. with wheels. These are for me, the best, time saving and most flexible lighting placement solutions I have experienced. From table top products, to full length fashion in the studio or on location. From 6 foot soft boxes, to 7.5 foot Octoboxes, to heads with barn doors. You can roll your lights into position and adjust the light's position to almost any angle possible and quickly. The lights and their modifiers stay in position and can be moved as one wishes with the twist of the wrist or the lifting of an elbow. The boom deals with all the weight issues. Of course, you have to exercise caution when adjusting the boom arms counter weight and when attaching and removing the lighting equipment on and off it. I would also suggest a step ladder for this. I have really not tried them on a C stand but I did try a 6x4 foot soft box on a C stand briefly and it was holding up well. But sandbagging the C stand without wheels limits the overall movement in this case. The main question is, will you use it enough to justify the expense. If so, it should make your lighting life easier and remove unnecessary strain to your body.

Perfectly balanced - perfectly easy to use.

This is the 2nd Cambo Redwing boom arm that I bought for my studio --- and what sets this apart from other boom arms, is that you don't have to lock it into position. It stays in position however you moved it. This makes it easy to readjust. Beautifully elegant.

a must tool in any studio

you cant really appreciate this amazing boom arm till you actually use it. for any photographer who thinks that details make the difference this tool is an amazing thing to have , the ease of use compatibility and ergonomically design make your lighting shaping so much easy, precise and super fast , this tool eliminate the all obstacles and discomfort of tiding nobs and climbing,you literally do it with a tip of your finger and get a surgical precision....and YES .... 25 + pound of gear load as far as the price goes ,$400 and change , if you think about the fact that it cost about 150 dollars to get a regular boom arm ,matthews or avenger , for an extra $250 you getting a top notch tool that exceed the regular boom arm experience by light years . only thing that i found as a con is the weird glossy screaming red color in one of the elements ,i gaffed tape it in black ........ problem solved
