      I use this as a rolling laptop stand on location in conjunction with an SKB iSeries Laptop Case with Sunscreen, that I screw onto the centerpost from an old tripod that fits perfectly in the Avenger's 1/1/8" receiver. This is the best little rolling stand I've ever had: incredibly smooth, just the right height, never feels like it might tip over, folds down to a great size for the road. One of my best purchases, hands down -- indispensable for tethered shooting. Would be great in a studio setting, works great on location.

      Heavy Duty!

      This is a big, heavy, though short stand. Sturdy enough to hold my Arri 5K fresnel.

          You just can't beat the build quallity of these stands. I bought this one to hold a Tether Tools tray, which it will do and then some. The height was good. But could have been just a bit lower. Otherwise, its an awesome stand, my seventh wheeled stand from Avenger.

              Beefy stands, going to use for camera slider. Tests went great, stands very stable, locks worked great, height adjustments were biggest range for stand of this size. Long term unknown, but can't see why they wouldn't work well.

                This roller stand makes for a great short monitor stand. With its multiple mounting points, it also acts as an excellent light stand. It's built well, and holds up to transport like a piece of pro support gear should.

                    The photo for this product is a little deceiving as it looks "skinny", but once you get your hands on this stand, it's beefier in real life! It's build really well, with smooth rolling wheels that lock into place with no movement; easily adjustable, and just the right height for use as a monitor stand (the way I use it). You'll just have to purchase an adapter of some sort to use it with a tabletop (I just pulled out the center column from my Manfrotto small tripod, and put it in and it works!).

                    Great value for the money. Definitely recommend.

                              Well made stand. Smaller footprint than A5034, which makes it the right size for a huge softbox, but not really appropriate for a boom arm. I bought the conka bonka's too just it case I need the stand to be taller in the future.

                                Comments about Avenger A5012 3.9' Roller Stand 12 with Folding Base (Chrome-plated/Black):

                                These stands are very reliable and versatile. Along with that they are rugged and work in the many conditions that I have been in since I've owned them. For lighting, they provide an easy way to maneuver large light sources like large sized light soft boxes. I use small, medium, and large video pro lights and the stands support the weight and move easily over rough uneven terrain such as outdoor settings or indoors over smooth surfaces.

                                A surprising feature that I found out (because I purchased two) is that when paired with a track end bracket, the light stands make for an awesome dolly track system for video work. The light stands will work as long as the connection of the bracket fits in to a 1 1/8 inch receiver. If paired with a sturdy, heavy duty rod clamp, the stands can support a camera rig like the dolly and lights for a continuous lighting source without having to do numerous cuts and takes to adjust lights. A must have for people like me (student and independent filmmakers on a small budget)! That makes for a really useful and beneficial long-term solution rather than a costly short term/temporary solution.

                                The wheels are great too. What I like about the stand is that the axels that the wheels are attached are not on a revolving platform so when the stand is in use, the wheels do not trip over things from constantly moving and shifting. This definitely shines when on set and the need for moving from one spot to another, the ride is smooth and the locks are tight. The wheels fold up and down and lock in place so you don't have to worry about things slipping and falling out of place when the stands are in use. Nice thing is that when the locks are disengaged, the axels do not move until you move them to the position that want them in. This is cool because this may prevent injuries such as the axels slipping and clamping onto your hand or fingers. Very thoughtful feature.

                                In conclusion, these stands are versatile for photography and cinematography (all levels from amateur to professional). They are a great buy that I don't regret and they don't break the piggy bank as well. It's an awesome and safe product overall.

                                    Comments about Avenger A5012 3.9' Roller Stand 12 with Folding Base (Chrome-plated/Black):

                                    We abuse our avenger lowboy stands. With daily use, they last us 3-4 years before needing replacement. The springed leg locking pins are always the first things to go. Otherwise, these are durable stands and we find the small form factor to be handy in the field. Male and female head configurations makes this stand pretty easy to attach stuff to.

                                        I use this with a tether tools platform for my laptop. It rolls on any surface and is as solid as a rock.

                                          First off, I purchased the Avenger Double Riser for this stand, which increases its height. The stand is solid with a capital S. I don't think there is any light/modifier used by the average professional photographer, that this stand could not handle. The wheels are great, and it rolls effortlessly,

                                          After using regular light stands for ages, I finally took the plunge and bought the Avenger Lowboy Jr. This stand is substantial, yet easily movable from place to place in the studio. It is well worth whatever extra money your have to spend.
