Strobius Collapsible Boom Arm 30-55 cm (12-22")
A simple and elegant solution that adds flexibility to speedlight setting and helps to overcome the inconveniences of some light-modifiers.
1. Working with umbrella-type softboxes
Umbrella-type softboxes have one big disadvantage: you hardly can control the аngle with default equipment. Using Strobius Collapsible Boom Arm with Strobius UNI System (or Phottix Varos Pro BG / BG II holder or any other standard bracket) you will be able to set your softbox at a necessary angle, even up to 90 degrees.
2. Light stand extension
Common stands rarely are more than 2 m (6' 7") high, which is not enough sometimes. With Strobius Collapsible Boom Arm connected to the stand, you can reach the height needed for your perfect photo.
3. Lighting boom stand flexibility
There are cases when the light source should be placed above the subject (e.g. light setups such as "butterfly" or "paramount"). However, with default equipment setup, the stand gets in the shot. Strobius Collapsible Boom Arm helps to avoid such situations letting you perfectly place the light source keeping the stand at a distance.
4. Portable boom arm
Strobius Collapsible Boom Arm has a neoprene handle developed specifically for situations when your assistant manually holds the stand. Combine Strobius Collapsible Boom Arm with other Strobius Boom Arms in order to have light (comparing to common light stands) portable boom arm of needed length.
Strobius Collapsible Boom Arm can be used as a boom counterweight in standing background and collapsible reflectors support systems.
