  • Portabrace would cost you 10x the price!

    Prompt delivery and a great quality product. Something like this branded as Portabrace, would cost you 10x the price! Used it with 4 cans of coke in the other day to weigh down my tripod in windy weather... ideal!

  • Perfect for balancing my boom

    When you're working as a one man band, doing sound, lights and camera (and sometimes interviewing as well)  the last thing you want to be doing is tying your boom down with whatever you can get your hands on, and it looks pretty awful too! So this is why I got a Boom Water Bag, a neat and compact counterbalance for my boom. Water Boom Bags offer pillow-like pockets on the outside perfect for holding water bottles as a counterweight, able to hold up to 4 x 500ml drinks bottles which is perfect for balancing my boom in a long reach situation.
  • A must in any professional’s kit bag!

    The StandBags, (sandbag) I feel I should have bought a long time ago! The amount of times I’ve had to catch my lighting stands after they've been knocked into or kicked the last thing I want is a court case over caving in someone’s head with an Arri! (And I like my lights in one piece!) Again, I was amazed at the quality of the product at such an affordable price. (At this point I’d like to say cheap, but that would imply poor quality, which these are definitely not! But they are cheap!) Now we've all done it, packed away at a shoot, not double checked and left something behind. I would be sad to lose my little standy friend, but at such reasonable cost, I won’t be losing any sleep! These are too good to call disposable, but at these prices, they almost are! I can rest assured knowing at the click of my mouse I can have a brand spanking new one by the next day.
