The FT-501 is a medium-duty boom stand designed to hold equipment weighing up to 5kg. It includes 4 components which combine to form the boom stand:
1 x Spring Cushioned Light Stand (height extendable from 80cm to 2m):
1 x Boom arm (extendable from 1.2m to 2.15m)
1 x Grip head for connecting the boom arm to the light stand.
1 x Sandbag counter-weight. *Note that the sandbag is delivered empty. Simply fill with up to 5kg of sand so that it matches the weight of the item you are connecting to the boom.
This light stand has 3 stages connected by strong metal locks that can be adjusted to change the height of the stand. When not being used as part of the boom stand the light stand can be used as a traditional light stand as it has a standard 5/8 inch spigot at the top.
The boom arm has 2 stages connected by a sturdy metal lock which can be easily loosened and refastened to adjust the length of the boom arm. The top end of the boom arm has a standard 5/8 inch spigot mount for attaching equipment. A sandbag is included for attachment to the opposite end as a counter-weight. A grip head is included for connecting the boom arm to the light stand.
The primary reason for using a boom stand such as the FT-501 over a C-Stand is the maximum boom arm length of 2.15m. This gives the FT-501 far more reach than a traditional C-Stand when positioning a boom microphone or other accessories.
