The Phottix Multi Boom 16-inch Flash Bracket and Varos II BG Holder consists of Phottix's Multi Boom 16-inch Flash Bracket and Varos II BG Flash and Umbrella Holder.
The compact Phottix Multi Boom 16-inch Flash Bracket mounts into a standard umbrella swivel, holds two flashes on axis, and innovatively enables umbrella-style softboxes to be tilted up to 180 degrees. The solid all metal construction is simple, strong and long lasting with lightweight 6061 machined alloy material, with hard wearing black anodised finish. The eye bolt handle grip provides easy access to a handle outside the softbox, as well as a point to attach battery packs or small counterweights. Using a second Multi Boom base plate (not included) allows for quad flash mounting, or two flash units and 2 battery packs.
Umbrella-style 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. The Multi Boom bracket and arm eliminate this problem for fast-working photographers.
