Also a nice microphone stand

I am not a pro photographer but I am a pro Audio Engineer and I use this stand to hold microphones. This stand gets the mics way up high where you need them to record large groups. Very study with all metal section clamps, I have no reservation hanging very expensive mics on this stand. I don't know why this stand would not work as well for lighting equipment.

Well worth the price

The stand is very well made. I'm using mine with a Westcott TD6 and the 36x48 shallow softbox. It is nice and sturdy.

Good stand

This will be my second of these. We use them mainly for mounting small video cameras on during weddings. The 13' height gets above the crowd when needed.

Sturdy and a Great Bargain

By

from Austin, TX  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I use these in studio and on location. I had smaller, light weight stands that were not all that great on location. Using bigger softboxes was always a challenge, so I decided to upgrade to taller/heavier stands, especially because I bought a 22" beauty dish and wanted to put it on a boom. For the price, I figured I couldn't go wrong so I ordered a pair. I have to say I was very impressed by the build quality. They are sturdy and they are fairly big, but that's what I was wanting. I have used them on photo shoots outdoors with the beauty dish attached and have not had any issues with flying lights. I have also used them with a boom and have not had any stability issues so far. They do not come with a bag so please be aware if you plan on carrying them around and plan accordingly. Sometimes they can be a little big. I'll probably plan on getting a pair of this brand but a smaller size. If you don't mind bulk then these can't be beat. I don't really see the need for spending hundreds of dollars on stands unless you are a full-time pro.

Great stand for the price

By

I bought this stand to hold a 60" umbrella with a couple speedlights and it's more than stong enough. For the price, I think this stand is a steal.

Pair this with a Go Pro Hero camera for filming court events ( basketball, volleyball, tennis, etc.) with ease. Camera is mounted high for great court visibility.

Very good build quality for the price.

By

from Austin, TX  -  Hobbyist

I need a taller/higher quality stand than what I previously owned but as a hobbyist can't justify spending hundreds on them. I do a good mix of location and studio shooting so I want some heavier duty stands that could stand up to abuse. Compactness for me isn't too much of an issue. I don't mind carrying the extra bulk. The price for two of these stands is very reasonable. I figured they would be worth a shot. Ordering was easy and they arrived in about a week. I pulled them out of the box and said wow these are definitely big. They have a very big footprint when you set them up, but that is one of the reasons I ordered them. They should hold up well with a large softbox or outdoors in windy conditions While I'm certain they're not as heavy duty as stands that cost $100's of dollars, they feel rugged enough for me. The build quality is very good. I'm looking forward to testing them out and will post more feedback after using them outside.

Great Bang for the Buck

By

from Washington State  -  Business Owner

Wasn't expecting this good of quality for the dollar! Well built, solid. Very user friendly. Looking forward to my other stands biting the bullet, so I can order more of these. You won't be disappointed! Holds a monolight with large umbrella just fine.

BIG

By

from IL  -  Photo Enthusiast

This light stand is great. No beginner photographer should be without at least one. I listed tall as a con to get your attention. At it's smallest size, it is 3' 11", not the most compact. However, it is 12' feet tall when fully extended. The only reason 3' 11" is an issue, is because, I have yet to find a bag that it fits in. The air cusion will catch you off gaurd and shoot up, without a flash attached. This is one of my better finds on Adorama.

Questions about this item:

Ken S  does stand come with a carry bag?
JOSEPH A  NO
Kimnal E  I want to know how hight this stand is?
CRAIG A  The total height is 13 Feet 1/4 Inch tall. You can adjust it to any height up to that by setting each section to the length you want.
Mandy P  Can you tell me how to mount my umbrella to this stand? Do I have to buy something else?
DON M  Technically you could mount an umbrella in these stands if you loosen the top clamp and remove the post that holds lights or whatever, then use the clamp to hold the umbrella in place. The problem with this is that you will not be able to angle the umbrella. You really need to buy an accessory that holds umbrellas and such and screw that in the top of the post I referenced above. I hope this helps.
