Is it possible to mount a ballhead or any other kind of camera bracket onto an Avenger stand? This is for our photo booth and I do not want to use a bulky tripod.

Please let me know if you do this and I would love to see a photo of your setup. Thanks!

Here are the stands we have:

I'd use a Manfrotto super clamp and double-ball 'head', with a small A-S QR base clamp, as shown below. You could use a longer 'magic arm' instead of the double-ball head, which gives more freedom for positioning the camera, but it's a bit less rigid. I'd definitely use a 'variable friction' magic arm, not the lever-clamp type, unless you want to set once and leave alone until you tear it down.

Wow, that's awesome. This is exactly what I'd like to do. I could mount the camera AND the Profoto B1 head to the same stand. This way, we will only have one ugly stand rather than two. I want to keep this setup as clean and simple as possible and this is a great idea. Thnks
