So here's the deal...
I'm about to drop some dough on a new Alien Bee B800 with a gridded beauty dish. I've only used one once in the past, and it was mounted to a ~$700 boom stand. I simply cannot drop that kind of money on a lightstand. I'm looking for something a bit [read as: a LOT] more affordable.
Here's what I have:
-Multiple Heavy-Duty Manfrotto light stands
-One of these: http://www.bhphotovideo.com …4_124_Clamp_for_3085.html
What I'm looking for (possibly? you tell me...):
Will either of those suffice (by suffice, i mean 'not snap in half') with the Bee/BD setup?
Do you guys have any other [affordable] suggestions?
