This question was sent to me via our free Personal Gear Guru service by Charles J. asking about booming an Elinchrom Quadra head and 2×3′ softbox using a Master C-Stand, Grip Head & Grip Arm combination. 
 
Q: CHARLES J.
 
I’m looking for a boom stand and to support and Elinchrom Ranger Quadra head (very light) with a Elincrom deep octa box (27.5″) or an Elinchrom soft box (approx 2′ x 3′). Would a Master C stand 30″ with a grip arm work fine? As for the grip arm with big handle, would 40″ be too big or 20″? By the way, great videos! Very instructive and good tips.

Not Your Daddy’s C-Stand!

Have you ever struggled to open or close a C-Stand and almost wanted to give up despite the great versatility it offered you once you finally got the legs open? Well if you have, you certainly are not alone! The only guys that make it look easy are professional grips who certainly have the experience of opening and closing many of them on a daily basis. How would you like a C-Stand that you can open and close in under a second, hassle free? While other crews are still struggling with their C-Stands after a long production day, you’ll already be at your local bar with an ice cold drink! Check out the following video to see how.

The Kupo Master C Stand with Turtle Base features a unique innovation in the world of C-Stands that enables the still or moving image-maker of any skill level to open and collapse the legs of the base in under a second! The Master C-Stand is outfitted with a patented spring ring locking system that removes all tension from the legs so that gravity can do the work for you.

The Kupo Master C-Stand with Turtle Base comes in 20, 30 & 40″ double riser versions. Each size is available in a stealthy black powder coat or a chome plated steel finish. 

Never Let Go!
