Most Liked Positive Review

 

First light stand

One thing that surprised me is that each tube is loaded with a spring, so if a tube crashes down the shock is absorbed. It's great for what it is.

A Waste

I bought this in a kit to be able to hold the reflector, The stand does its job. The hardware on the stand will require some work to get the stand to the point that it will not move when you lock it into position. The stand tends to move even indoors. I your outdoor you better make some improvements to the stand or else all you will have is a weather vane! Stand bags are required, the top where you would connect a reflector are is poor quality the arm fits on the top but the fit is very loose

Great lightstand

By

I bought this because Adorama was out of their brand of light stands. It is a great lightstand that I am using exclusively for my reflector arm. I got it way cheaper in store too! :)

OK light stand

By

The mantra 'you get what you pay for' comes to mind with the Westcott photo basics light stand. It does the job, but leaves some to be desired, at least for me. My main complaint about this stand is the NOISY spring mechanism joining the segments of the pole. I get that cringe look (like scraping fingernails against chalk board) when raising/lowering it to adjust flash settings or put it at the right height. Maybe mine is an anomaly, but I'm almost at the point where I am embarrassed to use it in a quiet studio setting. For just messing around with umbrellas and off-camera flash, perfect inexpensive stand. If portable use is what you're after, go for the Manfrotto Nano stand (it's amazing!)

Super portable

By

I have several of these for travel and smaller jobs. They fit in small places, and can even hold a heavier flash like a bare alienbee if you are in a jam.

not impressed

By

For a cheap light stand it does ok. Most of the time the sections are stuck inside each other and take some force to pull them out to adjust the height. I have [...] stands that work better..

does the job

By

It's a light stand...inexpensive and easy to use. I got this as an "extra" for more flexibility in setting reflectors or umbrella.
