Umbrellas softboxes from Phottix and other manufacturers are great lighting modifiers. Easy to transport and use, fast to set-up – but there’s one big drawback: Because of the design they are almost impossible to tilt on a traditional light stand.
Phottix has realized this flaw and overcome it. Building on the success of the Phottix Multi Boom 16” – the new Phottix Multi Boom 28’ offers increase functionality, allowing more flashes and larger softboxes to be mounted, and with a more balanced position over the lightstand.
Maneuvering a softbox is even easier now using the Multi Boom 28's built in hand grip. Full tilt, and swivel motion is now possible.
Multi Boom’s bracket mounts in a standard umbrella swivel. The boom holds four flashes on axis with the umbrella shaft, and allows an umbrella softbox or umbrella to be tilted.
A single flash mount is also now included, allowing a single flash to be mounted centrally. And an integrated short column also provides a compact bracket option.
Available as the Phottix Multi Boom 28" or as a combo with Multi Boom 28" and Phottix Varos II BG Umbrella Adapter.
