Excellent

The only reason this doesn't get 5 stars is because I never give 5 stars. Very good build, lightweight yet stable.

Not Very Sturdy - Great For Indoors

I purchased this to use with an SB-800 and a small umbrella. I this setup to be very unstable when set to it's max height. I'm glad I don't have to use it that high yet, but if I did, I would be too scared to use it without some additional support on the base, such as sandbags, or lazy cats.

Packs in your Suitcase!

By

I bought my second stand to take with me to Europe. I can pack both of these in my suitcase and I will use them indoors with Nikon Speed Lights. I also take them for small shoots on location when I don't have an assistant to help me carry equipment.....I put these into my rolling camera bag and use another shoulder bag for a Lastolite soft box set up.

Great for a light weight stand

By

It is what you expect from a lightweight stand. Great for using portable flash with umbrella. Not good to use with standard strobe head i.e. pro photo just not strong enough when extended.

does the job its intended for

By

this stand is perfect for travel purposes..i need to have stands that can fit in the suitcase that can board the plane with me..these are not intended for heavy duty outdoor stuff but are great when photographing small children and babies ..and need something to go to someones home with..its a bit pricey but you trade off with convenience..i don't mind having something at the base to support them since its only for temporary shoots..i use sturdier ones for my home setup...

Works as it should, and does what I need

By

I have no complaints so far. I've used this during a couple shoots I've done with various people and it's easy to tote around and simple to set up. It may be small and underweight if you're working outdoors but some sandbags could help with that. It has a good height range. I'm extremely happy with the purchase.

Manfrotto Nano stand

By

Well made light stand that is compact, lightweight, and easy to pack. Strong for its weight. Everything fits right and works smoothly unlike some cheaper imitations.

Well Built, Very Compact

By

I was worried about the build quality, but when they arrived I was pleasantly surprised! They're better built than my standard Paul C Buff light stands. Are great for travel - but not suitable for a strobe/light with an umbrella/softbox.

excellent product

By

The only thing I'd like to see in this product is a couple of D-rings, so I can attach a shoulder best to it.

perfect light lightstand

Make sure you get a manfrotto or lumedyne umbrella bracket. Once you have one of those, you will have a perfect setup that can take a hit.

Questions about this item:

Karen G  I am looking at this particular light stand because of the minimum height. I practice my studio photography on my dogs. Its max load capacity is only 4 lbs, so are you able to attach umbrellas or diffusers?
BRETT C  I use these stands a lot, and always with full-size speedlights (Nikon SB800), Fotoflex umbrella clamps, and 32" umbrellas. This stand carries the load easily. The biggest challenge for outdoor use, as with most umbrella setups, is wind. If it's breezy I'll weight the stand or toss a sandbag on one of the legs - but I haven't had any issues with capacity.
Karen G  Thanks for the feedback!
