A boom is an essential tool for positioning a light fixture either directly above the photographer, videographer or cinematographer to create a beautiful flat light, or positioned above the subject acting as a hair light. This lightweight aluminum all-metal construction features an "ear" that is designed to fit between the plates of a grip head. It features a built in hook at the tail end for adding sandbags for counter-weight. This boom extends from 3.8 – 7.8' (1.1 – 2.4m) and will support 6.6 lbs (3 Kg) when fully extended. The Aluminum Baby Boom comes in a stealthy black finish.
