Well, after some time of searching, I found the piece of the Avenger F1000 that I "had" lost, it was under the gas tank of my old car!

some pictures soon.

There is some awesome work and great info in this thread and I'd really like to thank the people who have posted it. Especially those who take the time to explain the how-to and sourcing of parts and so on.
I REALLY want to give this stuff a try some day!

I'm considering a carbon boom, and found what seems to be a good deal, and thought I'd share it with you guys. There's a store on ebay based in hong kong that sells carbon tubes, and i've bought some smaller stuff from them before to build a shoulder rig and a steadicam out of. It seems to be of good quality.

they have a 45mm OD x 42mm ID x 1meter for $58 (plus $22 shipping to the USA) or a 50mm OD x 46mm ID x 1M for $75 (plus $22).

is this a good deal? I know i'll still need to get the ferrules, but otherwise I can get a 4m, 45mm OD boom for $254 shipped.

Did you use CPL or ND filter? :)

Not much point in getting carbon unless you're going further than 5m IMO

well i'm using 1.75" galvanized steel EMT conduit right now, and am seriously looking at an upgrade. I figured I might as well take 2 steps up for a marginal price difference instead of just one step and go with AL conduit. the 4M was just for an example, anyway.


on a related note, I used some parts of my car rig on a film set sunday night:

I was key grip/gaffer, and had to emulate a train station/street light. suction cup on the window, two 4-ft. pieces of my steel boom, and a pair of super clamps on the electrical conduit. the light was held with another super clamp and a homemade stud.

here's the result (just from my behind the scenes camera, the actual scene looks way better)

I'm not sure how thick that carbon tube is, but mine is 1/8" wall thickness. Even at that thickness you will still get some bend in the boom. I'm well over $2,000 USD in my boom alone, just because the last section I had made was hand laid - it tapers in thickness from end to end to increase rigidity and I only use that section when I'm going the full 20-feet.

No CP filter for that one, just an ND and GND.
