ikan HD-STND-V2 Reviews
Sturdy Stand with Good Build Quality
The build quality is very good. The turn knobs are metal and the risers lock tightly. Haven't had any issues with it holding a lantern light. Like all stands with a heavy light, sandbag for safety. The air cushioned risers are really helpful. When a light is high up, it doesn't come crashing down with you lower the risers. It probably adds a bit to the weight, but stand works well. Would fit in a 36in long space without issue.
Great inexpensive, sturdy stand but one complaint
Got two of these to replace my cheap no-name, super thin and wobbly light stands for my key and fill lights for studio video work. These are significantly stronger and sturdier, little to no wobbling, and the air cushioning works without making them a pain to extend (unlike some other cheap air cushioned stands that I've used in the past that required a good deal of force to extend, because of the air cushioning). These do hit about 8 feet with the legs extended to their maximum width, and can reach somewhere over 9 feet if you put the legs all the way out to maximum height (at the cost of stability). My only complaint is the top section of the stud. From the top, there's the first 5/8 section, then it goes down to the skinnier section where your light or whatever clamping screw will hold against, before expanding back out to 5/8 at the bottom of the stud. The top section is taller than most light stands I've used, so lights or other mountable things with a shorter receiver socket won't actually reach all the way to the bottom 5/8 section. So for my Godox SL60W lights, they are basically resting only on the top section of the stud, and the bottom part of the receiver on the lights only reaches to the thinner part on the studs, which means the lights aren't held level and can flop around, unless I really crank down on the mounting bolt in the lights' receiver sockets. In fact, because the receiver sockets are so short, the mounting bolt only runs into the angled part of the stud (the transition between the top 5/8 diameter section and the skinnier middle section), so the bolt isn't even holding against a flat surface, but rather against an angled surface. I much prefer leaving my lights with the screw only partially tightened - enough to keep the lights from coming off the end of the light stand, but without completely gripping the stud so I can swivel the lights with no resistance. Can't do that with these stands. I imagine more expensive lights will have deeper 5/8 receiver, so they would make contact at both the top 5/8 section and the lower 5/8 section, with the mounting bolt aligned with the skinnier middle section of the stud. If that were the case, these stands would work perfectly. But with that much longer top section of the 5/8 stud, it's just under 1.25 from the top of the stud to the lower 5/8 section - meaning the receivers on your lights need to be at least 1.25 inches long to make contact with both and not be wobbling around. I also measured my other (mostly cheaper) light stands and the average length between top 5/8 section and lower 5/8 section on the studs is around 0.9. As long as your lights or whatever you're mounting have 5/8 receivers that are at least 1.25 deep (1.5 or so would be a bit better for more contact with the stud), these stands are really, really nice.
strong and steady tripod
strong and steady tripod I will buy same brand of other products
Solid and secure but longer to store
Hardware is heavy duty, stand is sturdy. Be aware that it you use this for traveling that it is only a 3 section and you will need a longer space for traveling with it.
Heavy-Duty Stand at a great price!
Ikan continues to improve the build quality of their products. This light stand is proof. It's thick and stiff, the adjustment handles are very strong, and the legs are very wide to handle quite a bit of weight while maintaining balance...even without a sandbag. I can't say enough good things. This is easily one of the best budget light stands you can get.
Really NICE! Holds my Godox AD400 solidly. Another 'git er done' product!
Great, solid, heavy duty stand for the money. Highly recommended.
Very good product for the price.
