| p.1 #10 · einstein flash head slipping on D600 boom arm stud |
Right, the D600 spigot is fixed and I do think the drop down pin will work with it, but someone else needs to verify that as I can't say with certainty. I think for other, smaller booms, it might be a different story (ie, not fixed and too short, and these are the ones people got a new spigot in order to use the drop down pin). That spigot on the D600 looks long to me, long enough. I think the main issue is getting that end deep enough into the drop down pin's hole, where the screw clamp can grasp it. I looked at the D600 before posting earlier, and to my imagination, it looks like it will work. Just read the reviews on B&H for the Avenger and the Matthews.
I haven't used one yet, but I get the picture that many people don't appreciate how it works, which is why you posted you don't see why it's better. The key is, you only clamp on to the studs. The hinge is not meant to be fixed or tightened down fully. The pin is basically meant to hang straight down (about) at all times, no matter what angle you have the boom relative to the ground (at least that is how I am picturing it). It's a completely different approach than the piece you mentioned in your original post, just to clarify.
