    Manfrotto MS0490A reviews

    MS0490A Nanopole Stand is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best lightweight stand around! This is by far the best and most convenient portable light stand. If you're looking for a stand for studio strobes, this isn't the stand for you. If you're on-the-go and need lightweight, quick setup, durable with a host of options then this is your stand. I'm a wedding photographer and when I'm on location on a wedding day, I need to be quick and agile as I usually don't have very long to shoot in the locations that I choose. This stand allows me to get in, set up with a speed light and get my shot. It's super small and lightweight so I can attach it to my backpack when doing engagement sessions. The pole release is a nice feature when I have an assistant with me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product This is a compact well built stand. It is low profile, yet sturdy. One leg extends in case you are not on level ground such as a theatre floor that slopes toward the stage. It comes with a tip/adapter that is threaded. No negatives for this product - all positives.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bossman1969 For the past 20 years, I've been a full time wedding and portrait photographer. Always looking to lighten my load and simplify and streamline my gear. The Nanopole is very lightweight, which is perfect for me as I'm only placing a speedlight on it and occasionally an umbrella or small softbox. Anything much heavier might not be a good fit. The adjustable leg feature is nice, but is only adequate for mild irregularities in surface height. It couldn't be used on a step. The detachable pole is a cool idea. However, when setting up the stand and folding the legs down into position, the pole will sometimes come out of the base without depressing the unlock button on the bottom of the pole. Seems this only happens when the pole is aligned in a certain position. Not sure if this is by design or a defect. No mention of it in the literature. It hasn't caused me any issues since I'm aware that the pole needs to be aligned a certain way during set up to avoid the pole coming out of the base. Overall, I'm very happy with this stand- it just needs a few little changes to be perfect. If you need an ultra-light stand that tops out at 7', and packs down to only a little over 19, and weighs only 2 lbs 5 oz, this stand is worth a look.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from small yet taller than 6ft I bought this to fit in a lightware camera case. It fit fine and yet extends to 7.5 ft. ( I have no idea why they say 6) The added advantage to using it a hand held light is cool. Sturdy and well made. You get what you pay for.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again and again I have 3 of these stands and bought the first for a off camera lighting stand. I also have two more that I use for supporting my backdrop.Very lightweight and easy to set up.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Prettylady I appreciate this lightstand's portability, & it's a great concept, however it is only strong enough to handle a speedlite. I hope the company develops one that is sturdier

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very portable. I use this with my Profoto B2 and A1. Very portable while still offering relatively stable support. Sturdy. A must have for the photographer on the move. Will be buying another!
