Would this be a good stand to use with a slider? I don't see how this is any different than the Slider Stand other than the dimensions.
Asked by: John
The Slider Stand Is a much beefier stand with much more "camera/lens height" friendly range. Its ability to get the slider low is very valuable. The risers and legs are sturdier on the slider stand, it's 1-1/8" Junior receiver is more stable than 5/8" Baby Pin. Both are great stands but the Slider Stand is designed to support a dynamic load,and will provide a much more stable base.The Low Boy Combo is more similar to the slider stand than the Hollywood Beefy Baby.

Does this work only with studio lighting or can we mount flash units to them?
Asked by: N
the top of the stand features a 5/8" Baby pin, so any unit with a 5/8" Baby receiver will mount to the stand. There are certainly adapters that will mount hot shoes to Baby Pins.

question

what is the studded bolt at top of one leg only for?
Asked by: Anonymous
It's a Rocky Mountain Leg. By loosening the bolt, you can adjust the level of the stand. If you're trying to set a light on a hill or stairs, you can make the two non-adjustable legs level with each other, then loosen the bolt and slide the leg out until the stand is level. That way you can extend the stand up without it toppling over while it's sitting on uneven ground. You typically don't need it if you're going to be lighting exclusively in a studio, but it's the most amazing thing to have when you're out on location and dealing with uneven and slanted terrains.

question

I don't need higher than 8.5-foot but I want sturdy steel contruction. Unlike the 12.4-foot triple riser version which only states Steel contruction, the shorter one here states Steel and Aluminum. So is it mostly steel or aluminum? And is it constructed any different than the triple riser version I mentioned here: https://<a href= http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/139497-REG/Matthews_387031_Hollywood_Beefy_Baby_Steel.html target= _blank >www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/139497-REG/Matthews_387031_Hollywood_Beefy_Baby_Steel.html</a>
Asked by: Stephen D.
The 387030 Hollywood Beefy Baby has steel legs, base tube and first riser tube are aluminum and the top riser is out of steel. Its the best of both worlds.
