Cambo 99131260 Overview

The Cambo RD-1201 Redwing Standard Light Boom with Lead Shot Counterweights features precision brass bearings for ultra-smooth movements and precision positioning of the mounted light source.

The counterweight bags can be slid individually over the 21” (55 cm) long rail for ideal balancing. The Standard Boom is perfect for general studio photography, large sets, portrait studios, and applications with extremely low angles.

It features calibrated angle indicators on both the height adjustment and rotating head movements, making it easy to repeat setups. The light boom can be mounted to an HD support stand via a 1-1/8" male stud.

Perfect for easily adjusting heavy lights and modifiers.

It didn't take long to find out that a studio light with a big modifier on the top of a C-stand is a HEAVY combination and difficult to adjust. I needed something I could easily adjust without lifting the entire weight of everything and this was just the ticket. With the counterbalance weights I can also adjust the whole set-up from 1 off the ground to the top of my studio with 1 finger - love it! My cambo is paired with an Avenger A-5034 stand (suggested by my B&H rep) and I KNOW when I put a light and large modifier on it that it's solid as a rock and not going anywhere unless I move it. I've had it for a few years now and both are just as solid as they were the day I got them. A few of my friends who have been to my studio and experienced it have ordered the same set-up and a few more are saving for it. It's a great boom and a perfect compliment to my studio.

Extremely flexible and easy to use

This counterweighted boom is great for fast and easy light modifier adjustment in our studio. A quick note--the specs say it needs a baby pin to attach to your base but it actually uses a standard 5/8 female pin.

Strong, Sturdy Light Boom

Supporting, especially with the quality counter weights. This boom supports lights and large soft boxes (with or without grids). Very supportive and strong.

Good Product

Product is lightweight and works well. Glad I bought it. I take this boom on location. The only downside is the use of plastic for the angle indicators. Time will tell how well the plastic will hold up for repeated set up and breakdown. One of the supplied shot bags arrived with a split seam. The material seems thin compared to other shot bags.

question

What stand do you use with this Boom? The boom stands on B&H don't seem to have 1 1/8 studs.

I use mine with an Avenger A5034 and it's solid as a rock! The wheels make it easy to roll around and lock in place with a foot bump.
