    Great stand for starting out!

    By John

    I have bought two of this stand, both of which have served me well on a few shoots, and do everything I need it to do. I use them alongside a bowens mount to speed light adaptor, so I'm rarely concerned about my light and modifier weight. If I was, the legs fold in such a way that adding weight to stabilize it would be easy. The knobs work well, and it's relatively compact. The air cushion can provide some resistance when fully extending, but it is well worth the safety in case I forget to tighten a knob. Overall, I can see keeping these for quite a while as an enthusiast photographer!

    Bought this to replace one that finally the seals gave up on a shoot. Lasted a number of years so for the money, I got my use out of it.

    Poor quality and they broke

    These are not worth bothering with to be blunt. Mine both ended up in the bin after very little use: cheap construction and low quality materials. Stay away. I ended up buying the budget Matthews stands which are great.

    Tighten section collars!

    I was just getting ready to return this because on my first use, the bottom segment would not tighten. The segment had pulled completely out of its tube and once I put it back, it wouldn't tighten and was loose and rotating around. In a final attempt to figure out what happened, I realized that the collar had come loose and slid upwards. So I loosened the collar and managed to get it seated again on its tube. Phew! Saved a lot of hassle with return and replacement. Before you use this, just make sure the collar screws are snug. Cheers!

    It's a reliable light stand, just watch out for the weight of your light.

    The stands are easy to set up, portable when I needed to change locations. The umbrellas directed and provided a nice even light level.

    FLASH STAND

    Extended high enough and stable enough. I like that the shafts are cushioned and the flash won't crash when adjusting the lengths.

    Can this hold a wireless transmitter?

    Can this hold a wireless transmitter?
    Asked by: Zachariah
    The Impact Air-Cushioned Light Stand (Black, 8') has a 1/4"-20 male thread on the top of the light stand. If your wireless transmitter has a female 1/4"-20 threaded socket, then you may screw the wireless transmitter directly onto the male 1/4"-20 thread on the top of the light stand. If your transmitter does not have a female 1/4"-20 threaded socket, but it does have a hot shoe/cold shoe, you may purchase an adapter such as the Vello Cold Shoe Mount with 1/4" Thread, B&H # VECS20, for your usage needs. Finally, if your transmitter includes a lanyard, you may hang the transmitter from one of the locking knobs on the light stand riser.
