    Lowel VIP-431 reviews

    Handle and Stud-Link is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does the job, but heavy and rusty. The Lowell Handle and Stud Link does the job as advertised. It accepts either a 1/4-20 threaded attachment (like a camera or a Hakuba ball-mount flash shoe), or you screw-on the supplied 5/8 stud to mount a softbox or other flash accessory. Now you or your assistant become the light stand. Good idea. Better than carrying a light-stand and lot of sand-bags.But this is a surprisingly heavy item. It weighs about twice as much as you would expect by looking at it. It's heavily insulated rubber, with a good diameter for a solid hand-grip. The metal core seems to be plain old steel, and mine looks a bit rusty. I'm sure after a few weeks in my humid climate this thing will start getting very rusty.I like the idea and the convenience, but I'm not sure the weight and the rust will justify keeping this thing in my camera bag for the long-term.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Multi-purpose and solid piece of hardwar I use this on a handheld DSLR rig. I meant to replace a handle that had broken off and this works like a charm. Far cheaper than other options and is a perfect fit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for hand-holding any small light I use this for the Lowel ID light and it's perfect for it. It would also work for holding anything a 5/8 lightstand can.
