      Comments about Matthews Back Light Stand, Black - 19-52":

      This stand turned out to be more than I bargained for. But it's an unconventional design and storage is a minor issue.

      The stand comes in two or three parts, depending on how you look at it. The upright 3-section post telescopes into itself like a normal lightstand. This can be unscrewed from the three feet of the stand. The actual feet rotate around a pivot so they can be stored all pointing the same direction, much like a C-stand. There is also a small attachment so you can mount a light literally at floor level, leaving the 3-section post out of the picture entirely. That's pretty cool!

      My only quibble is that there are all these pieces to keep track of. You could leave the 3-section post attached to the base, but then you have this right-angle chunk of metal to deal with. And you can screw the floor-light attachment into an extra hole in one of the legs, but then you've got that sticking out to catch on things. For now I'm storing it in two pieces, but it's' less than ideal. I suppose I could bungee them together!

      All that said, the thing is built like a tank, heavier than you'd think it would be (but in a good way, for stability), and I recommend it.

          Fast to put together and collapses very well. This does the job, I have no complaints.
