Great value!

I love these, they go up to 12 feet and i feel pretty confident my stuff isn't going to fall. love the air cushion, gives me even more confidence. Overall, definitely one of my greatest investments, i can raise my strobes very high and have the lighting come down on cars for a nice effect.

Great stands

By

from Dallas, Texas  -  Semi-pro Photographer

These Manfrotto stands are well worth the money and gets the job done. Great stack/lock feature with air cushion makes transporting a breeze. As always, well made and good quality. A few things that I never go cheap on are my cameras, lenses, BDs, lightings and stands/tripods. Don't like wasting time messing with things that are not build/made right. Rather be spending time "capturing the moment" so to speak. After all, stands/tripods are like tires/wheels on a car. Don't want to go cheap on those and crash your expensive sports car. LOL Get the right tool for the right job will make your life a lot easier and happier!

Terrific as microphone stands

By

from Washington, DC  -  Photo Enthusiast

I got this set of three to mount microphones -- main pair and omni flankers. They worked wonderfully. Very stable, easy to transport, especially with a spare strap I had from a camera bag. I like the stackable/lockable feature of the stands when collapsed. The 'air cushion' when telescoping down the stands is a nice feature, preventing an unintentional slamming of one section into the one below it. Since I have amassed quite a few microphones, I already had plenty of thread adapters to mate microphone clamps and bars to the threaded portion of these stands.

Excellent Stands!

By

from Eugene, OR  -  Pro Photographer

I should have purchased these stands from the very beginning! Previously I had been using inexpensive Heavy duty and the much smaller lightweight light stands made by Impact. The Manfrotto 1004BAC stands are just about as large as the Heavy Duty Impact stands but as light as the smaller Impact stands.

Great lightweight stands!!

By

from Ontario, Canada  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I use these stands for backdrop support, reflector support, hot lights, and monolights. Being able to link these stands together is a killer feature and well worth the investment. It makes carrying these light stands to locations much easier. They are a nice trade off between light-weight and ability to hold fairly heavy equipment.
