I hope this is the right place to put this. I didn't see a section that dealt with equipment. I am looking to buy a boom light stand and light and was wondering if anyone here had one they were looking to sell used before I buy one new.

If not, any suggestions? Would use it for hair lights or maybe as a light to throw light onto a backdrop. I do not have a studio and do things on location. Usually set up in clients living rooms, so I do not need a HUGE one. Also, what power of light should I get? I don't want to go thru the trouble of setting this up and barely see that there is a rim light on the model. Though if I am getting a smaller boom, I know I cant throw a big light on it.

Just looking for suggestions.

Thank You,
Douglas Carl

The best I've found for boom use is pack and head systems like dynalite or speedotron. But if your wanting to stick to monolights take a look at Alien Bees. They are light tough and inexpensive. And you can't beat the customer service.

Matthews Grip Equipment. No more need be said.

I don't trust my Hensel monolights on any other stand....
