Quadra head, 53" octa, Manfrotto boom on a lightstand
Oct 10, 2011

Hello,

I searched for such a question here, but I didn't find it, so I'm posting it as a new topic.

I want to buy a boom. The heaviest thing it would carry would be a 53" Elinchrom Octa (135cm) and a Quadra head.

The 2 choices I have currently available are the following Manfrotto booms that I will put on a Manfrotto 008 stand:

Here are the boom options:

I know that the $350 one will do the job. My question is — does anybody use the 085BSL boom arm with the 53" octa and a Quadra (or a heavier) head?

Thanks!
