I'm looking for a boom. Which one should I get?
That's the short of it. The long of it is: the boom would need to carry 2.6kg strobe+modifiers of various kinds, and
be flexible enough to fit into a small room, and clear the top of a standing person's head. (Also it would be good if it
didn't break and fall on me, pinning me underneath my heavy gear for several days until I expire. So, sturdy.)
I have no idea whether I just need an arm to attach to a stand which I already have, or if I need a whole other kit of
things. There seems to be a million options for booms out there, so if someone can point me in the right direction
to search that would be marvellous.
