Rocwing/Pixapro/Cheetah/Impact boom review - My favorite light stand, ever.
I'm really glad I got this. It's like a lighting geek's Christmas morning.
This Rocwing brand boom light stand is simply superb, especially for the price. No other unit I have seen or found online gives value like this.
It's a four-meter light stand that has a folding connection in the middle that allows it to easily and quickly be used as a 2 x 2 meter boom stand for lights, microphones, reflectors, making items "float" in the air with fishing line, etc.
It's surprisingly strong and easy to work with. It came with a "sandbag" that holds two big water bottles as a counterweight. It was missing a clip/hook to hold the bag, but it took me under a minute to find a replacement. With those two bottles, I could use my lighting fixture with its 5 CFL bulbs (see video below) and its 50x70cm softbox and it feels super sturdy.
