I would receommend checking out autopoles.

I looked at those and wished I had a way to apply them but, my ceilings are at an angle (high) and the poles aren't long enough toward the rear. Thanks though.

I'm thinking that 6 of the longer Manfrotto wall booms should cover just about everything (ml/r - rears & hair). Sending 3 of the Manfrotto short booms back in exchange.

Anyone using Einstein's with large attachments on the longer booms without stability issues? PCB's largest soft box w/Einstein is right at the long booms weight limit.

I think the angle would be the main problem - I'm not sure how well they would hold if the ceiling was slanted, especially if they were pulled to the high direction. However, I am sure you can meet the height needed. The standard versions extend to arounf 10 feet and there are extensions that you can get in 2 or 3 different lengths.

Anyway, sound like you've found your solution.

I have a question that you'll may be able to answer. I have a garage with 10' ceiling and is 24 feet deep and 20 feet wide. I have cabinets on the backwall, which take up about 1-1.5' of space. The garage is used for vehicles and other mechanical work, but I move the cars when I need to use it, so its not just for a studio.

I'd like to install something permanent to the ceiling that can be extend downward from the ceiling and retracted when not needed and can hold up to a 12' roll (9' is sufficient though) of background seamless paper. I want to be able to extend it up to about 2' from the ceiling to mimick using 8' stands. Also, if possible, I'd like to be able to mount 2 poles for different size/color paper that way I don't have to deal with changing the background too often. Is there such a device out there? Can anyone suggest any other setup. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks...Al

Ceiling mount manfrotto expanses system or copy, and don't worry about the height, just extend the paper.

Its not very pretty...primarily for video work. The mess in the back is intended to be my backdrop for video toy reviews.

2 x 4' Kino-Flo Tegra lights, and 2 x 2' Kino-Flo Divas. The hair light is a really cheezy florescent bulb in a clamp fixture.

Often I set up a green screen. A future improvement would be to fix the green screen permanent someplace.
