Impact Aluminum Mid-Range Boom Arm Review
Boom arms come in a variety of lengths and styles. I’ve used large ones in the studio to support overhead strobes and softboxes for hair lighting scenarios. Smaller ones are useful for lighter loads and smaller setups.
I bought a couple of Impact Aluminum Mid-Range Boom Arms primarily for use with microphones. I have one setup at my desk for video and voice-over recording, and sometimes I’ll use them for video interviews.
In this video, I offer my opinions on this boom arm and some tips for use.
The Impact Mid-Range Boom Arm comes with:
- Standard ⅝” stud mount
- Reversible ⅝” stud with ¼” & ⅜” sides
- Saddle-type sandbag
Keep in mind, your light stand should be strong enough to carry the weight of the boom arm as well as the load on both ends (the working end and the counterbalance end).
For my purposes, this is an excellent little boom arm.
