    General Brand LS6B reviews

    Light Stand, Black (6') is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 440.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from for use indoors only these stands are my only complaint from this impact lighting kit i purchased. i'm used to air-cushioned heavy duty PBL light stands, and these are just very flimsy. don't get me wrong, they work, and for indoor projects they will do fine, but i wouldn't take them outside and expect them to survive a day of shooting. I feel like I could snap these in half with just my bare hands. with proper care, they will last me. just need to be very careful with them. they are very lightweight. even with 20lb sandbags on them, it was swaying in the wind and it looked as if it would snap. scary!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Smaller Than Specs Listed The two I received were smaller than the specs listed above. They're 26.5 folded, and have a minimum standing height of 27 (not 34 and 32 as stated). And the footprint diameter is 36 (not 30 as stated). I was actually happy about this; they're easier to store/transport than I would have thought. Otherwise, the stands are fine. They hold speedlights, which is all I wanted them for. They do feel a bit flimsy, even compared to previous Impact products I've purchased, but I don't plan to put heavy studio lights on them or put them out in the wind. When fully extended to 6', the shafts aren't entirely straight; I have to shorten them to 5'5 or so to get a straight vertical line.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from does the job I use this product with my canon 430EX speedlite flash. It is easy to set up and lightweight but sturdy enough to place near people dancing around on a dance floor. In order to attach your flash you will also need this:Interfit STR117 Umbrella Bracket with Hot Shoe Adapter@

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sturdy and easy to adjust I used these stands to hold PAR 38 cans with low watt bulbs and retro-fitted barn doors in a retail store to create a specific look. I like the solidity of the stands, and the ease with which they can be extended. I didn't like how short the threaded portion was. I had to buy wing nuts to install the cans, and felt there wasn't enough room for tightening. I would have preferred to use a couple of washers to help support the cans, but that was out of the question. As it is, I feel these wing nuts will need tightening every few days to make sure the lights are secure.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from You get MORE than what you pay for! I bought two of these stands to hold speedlights that will be used to light backdrops. It comes with the 1/4 threaded stud to which you can attach an optical slave, or use the collar to attach an umbrella/softbox bracket. All clamps are metal screws threading into metal receivers, so you're NOT going to strip out plastic threads. It's a nice sized base as well, covering up to almost 3 feet. Great product for your money!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good for certain applications If all you are going to do is put a light on it then I would say this product will do the job. I bought two to support my camera slider. For slider applications they are to flimsy to really support the weight and it tends to shake as I move the camera. The fasteners to tighten the extensions are plastic and can break easily. It's a good buy if you need something fast and don't have a lot of money, that's what I did. For the time being they will work fine until I have more money for a more sturdy product. Just be careful with it. Don't go throwing it around and it should last you a while.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Low price, not cheap Well built, sturdy and locks are solid when telescoping it out. Base easily extends and collapses without that flimsy feel. Once tubes extended completely still has a solid feel with a 42 umbrella on it or an SB900. Construction appears to be comparable with one of my more expensive 8' stands at a very good price.
    Date published: 2010-08-27
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Value These are not the best light stands out there by any means, but they are a fantastic value. With light use, these hold up fine. I keep them indoors and don't move them around from place to place that frequently. When I do, I pack them into a box and transport them in the back of my car. I also don't use them with heavy light sources. Mostly, I use them for speedlights with modifiers or the occasional light monolight or strobe. For these purposes, these are great. If your needs require heavy-duty use and support for large loads, I'd recommend investing more money into a higher quality stand.
