Very Satisfied with this Stand

  • Excerpt: Metal construction is solid. Very intuitive and easy to use. Extends far enough. metal finish is nice.I use this product with a strobe and softbox.Note that the sandbag is BYO-sand. I would probably want a second sandbag if I were to extend the boom when working on unstable ground outside.
  • Pros: Attaches Securely, Durable

  • Excerpt: For the price point it is perfect, just make sure you have the proper counter weight to go with it. Can hold the weight it says and then some.
  • Pros: Attaches Securely, Durable, Lightweight, Powerful

very good product

  • Excerpt: I bought 3 of these for use as a mobile studio in the strobist stle of photography. The boom is capable of taking a flash head and 40 cm softbox, although at full boom extension the boom exhibits some flexing. This is no problem however. I add extra weight to the stand legs when doing this. Manfrotto makes a solid product. I still use a manfrotto tripod i bought 30 years ago, so hopefully will not need more light stands for quite some time.
  • Pros: Attach Securely, Durable, Long-Lasting

Manfrotto Boom Stand 420

Adorama
21 February 2009
  • Excerpt: I don't have any other 'boom' stands, so can't compare, but I am very happy with mine so far. It's the same quality as other Manfrotto non-boom stands, of which I own three. I have mine supporting a Nikon SB800 and a 36 inch umbrella. It seems very sturdy, and setup was simple. The clamps hold tight. I like that I can get the umbrella directly over the subject, and fairly high.
  • Pros: Easy Setup, Reliable

User Review

  • Conclusion: Att använda: 5 Hållbarhet: 4 Jag är mycket nöjd med stativet. Tre saker vill jag dock nämna som inte stod med när jag letade efter info om det. Stativet utan motvikt och med även en lätt softbox för speedlight blir för gängligt, så se till att alltid ha den medföljande viktpåsen/hölstret med och använd det med vikter. Då funkar den kanon.
  • Pros: Den har höjd och längd nog att uppfylla de flesta krav på ett bomstativ för vanligt konsumentbruk och är trots det fina märket prisvärt i jämförelse.
  • Cons: Motviktspåsen hade kunnat göras smidigare att använda och transportera med sig. Det är dock lätt att hitta på alternativ. Har hängt en vanlig plastkasse med hake i stället vid något tillfälle med utmärkt resultat.
