The Manfrotto Combi Boom Stand performs double duty as a traditional lighting stand, or one with a boom arm to reach hard-to-get places. Extend the second riser of this medium-duty black aluminum light stand to its maximum height, press a lever, and it converts to a two section boom arm.
When used as a boom stand, it can hold up to 4.5 pounds (2 kg), which is strong enough for a small light fixture with a softbox, or umbrella. A sandbag counterweight is supplied and recommended whenever boom is extended.
Other features include:
- Sets up easily in a matter of seconds
- Column extension locking collars made from pressure die cast aluminum
- Boom telescopes from 44″ to 84″ (1.1 – 2.1 m)
- Double leg bracing provides extra stability and strength
