    Re: Tripod arm to support camera bed

    I've always used a light stand under the front bed. With so many strobists around, light stands are cheap and good enough to support the front extended bed.

    Or find a used car undercarriage jack, the one that screws.

    When I worked in the studios, they used 2 cement cans and a stick on the sides of the front standard, and a 1x2 longway and come A clamps. This was the days of shooting LF for magazines and print.

    Would not an adjustable monopod or hiking pole support the weight? It likely doesn't have to connect to the tripod.
