Photoflex 870058 overview

  • 1Description

The Photoflex LiteReach Plus is a heavy duty three-section support that allows you to hold a Photoflex LitePanel, umbrella or softbox up to 9.6' above your subject. Shooting outdoors, especially in mid-day sun is a tough contrast situation for the photographer and a hot, physically uncomfortable one for the subject. With separate purchase of the LitePanel Mounting Hardware Kit (PHLPFHK) you'll be able to hold LitePanel frames with diffusion material up to 39 x 72" over your subject to obtain soft, manageable contrast.

You can get a similar effect using a large white umbrella in place of the LitePanel. You'll need an optional Multiclamp with Shoe Mount (B&H# PHMCUSM)or a Heavy Duty Swivel (B&H# PHSM) mounted to the LiteReach Plus' 5/8" top stud to hold the umbrella. You can also use these products to support a softbox. With a maximum tubing diameter of 1.37", the LiteReach Plus has enough heft to handle a 15 lb vertical load at its full extension

 Comfort and ergonomics are key to the LiteReach's design. The large rubberized balance ball allows you to shift the weight of your gear to your hip or to the ground, while two hand grips are located at ideal spots on the shaft to facilitate single-handed or two-handed direction of the LitePanel, umbrella or softbox.

Extra long four section boom pole to facilitate resting the base on the ground using the proprietary Balance Ball technology.
All aluminum alloy heavy duty construction.
Oversized tubing for maximum strength when extended.

    LiteReach Plus is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Simple and useful! The only improvement I could suggest is making it carbon fiber to lighten the load and help keep hands from freezing as bad in cold weather. But that's for my assistant to worry about. They love me for buying this thing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! I have my assistants use this for mobile lighting on-location. They love the ball foot for comfortable hip propping. It's solid, feels heavy duty and handles well with or without umbrellas/softboxes.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Straight Forward! This boom stick is pretty much what you would expect. A little pricey for what it is and there is nothing fancy about it... but if you need something heavy duty, its a solid choice. Only negative I can point out is that the rubber ball at the base of this thing smells terrible. It will stink up a small room or your car in no time. But that should go away after a couple outdoor shoots.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Returned I bought this Litereach Plus mainly based on the excellent reviews it received. Unfortunately, I do not share such a glowing opinion of this piece of equipment. While it does have nice weight to it, it has very poor quality construction for its price. If it were $40, it would be five stars -- but no way it is worth over $150. It has been returned to B&H.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have This product is great for speed lite location shooting. I use it with 3x speed lites and a large soft. I am very pleased with its performance. I extend it almost all the way to its limit. I reserve a bit of the extension length in order to prevent flex.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy Right out of the box, this seems very sturdy and has a long extension. The ball at the end of the stick sits nice on your hip. Will have no problem holding my quadra and deep octa....

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Made - esp for lights. One of a kind. Using it on a series. Much better than the other booms I have tried on set. It's well made, more rigid and has a baby pin. The ball is fine. Not entirely necessary.
