Is this style enough to hold a 30" umbrella plus speed lite?
Asked by: Michael
The Impact Light Stand, Black (6') has a maximum load capacity of 4 lbs. While you did not list the brand/model speedlight you own, using the Canon Speedlite 600EX II-RT, the Impact 30" Convertible Umbrella, and the Impact Deluxe Umbrella Mount with Adjustable Shoe as an example, the combined weight would be approximately 2.94 lbs. It would be more than strong enough to support the weight of a flash, umbrella, and umbrella bracket. However, for safety purposes (especially for use outdoors), I would also recommend using a sandbag on the base of the light stand as extra ballast (such as the Impact Filled Saddle Sandbag (15 lb, Black), B&H # IMSBFB15).

Can this hold an Arri 650?

Can this hold an Arri 650?
Asked by: Jordan
Impact is good for lighter LED panels, but I wouldn't trust it with the field duty of the ARRI 650 fresnel. The tubing is much too light a gauge. The clamps are much too fragile. Best to go with Matthews or ARRI AS-01 Lightweight 8.3' (2.5m) Light Stand. Impact cannot take too much of a beating, transported to locations. Even sandbags will eventually pop something out. Safety first.

question

Can I mount an on-camera Cineroid LED light on this stand? Usually you would use the mini-ball with light to put it on the camera.
Asked by: Daniel P.
You could mount a Cineroid on camera light to this stand but you'll need an adapter such as the Impact Swivel Umbrella Adapter B&H # IMCA108. This adapter would have a 1/4 male thread which connects to the 1/4 female threading on the light. It also has a 5/8 receiver to fit the stand. Please see the image below for reference.

question

What else will I need to go with this for my softbox?
Asked by: Brian R.
You will need a monolight and an approproiate speed ring. You should also get some sandbags to prevent the stand from tipping over.

Will this support the Godox S2 Speedlite Bracket with Softbox (23.6 x 23.6") ? It will be used inside only.
Asked by: Charles
Depends on the weight of the soft box, might want to add a counter weight ( sandbag).
