    Westcott 9908 reviews

    Light Stand (Black, 8') is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 84.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I'm new to the wide world of photography so I was quite overwhelmed when trying to decide which accessories to purchase. This Westcott stand was recommended to me by a professional in my local photo club, and so far I am very pleased with it. I use it with a Canon Speedlite flash and a 43 westcott umbrella. So far it has held up very well, although I must mention I have only had it for a short time, so I cannot yet comment on it's longevity. It's metal construction makes for a much sturdier product than other plastic stands, however, it is still pretty lightweight. Overall I am very pleased with the product and would recommend it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than I expected - all I hoped for Look - this is a $ stand. I'm giving 5 stars on that basis. I needed TWO and I was feeling especially broke... just hoping for something that would work and not break in an hour. So I held my breath and ordered them. What a nice surprise - now I see why the reviews were so good. This is an awesome stand for the price. These things are steady as can be holding my home-made lights. They extend high and (thanks to their broad adjustable footprint) are still stable! They adjust nine ways from Sunday (as Mom used to say) and so they allow me to get the lights about anywhere I need.For about $ bucks??!! Worth every penny.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Few extra bucks for no air cushioning I got the Westcott 8' light stand because I bought the Westcott Rapid Box. This stand doesn't have air cushioning. Other than that it is the same in materials and construction quality as the popular Impact 8' stand (which has air cushioning). I'm usually pretty careful adjusting this light stand when there's a modifier and light attached. I do like the fact that without air cushioning, the sections collapse smoothly when putting the stand away. Air cushioning stands 'stutter' slowly versus slamming when losing tension. Air cushioning provides a minor safety factor. This stand requires a bit more care to details.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stand for lightweight lights I have three of these light stands. They have replaced older steel stands. The Westcott stands are lighter and collapse down to a smaller size, so are much easier to transport. They are well made and sturdy enough for my lighting equipment, which is also lightweight. They are not suitable for heavy lights. The clamping screws that hold the various sections in place work well. I use the stands to hold hot-shoe strobes with umbrellas or Lowel Ego lights.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and powerful I use a couple of these stands for studio/location shoots. They're simple, inexpensive and sturdy enough for a mounted speedlite up to a large softbox. Setup is quick and easy. For outdoor shooting, you may need to throw a sandbag across a leg because bigger softboxes tend to become sails in the wind.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for a strobist! I bought two of these stands recently to get started in the world of strobism, and I am very satisfied with them. They are very sturdy and lightweight. I would like to give these stands 5 stars, but the size of the stand when folded is larger than I would (ideally) like. They are longer than my tripod folded up in my lighting kit bag but are still rather lightweight and very sturdy. For a beginner, they can be a bit difficult to get unfolded. The bottom screw which unlocks the legs is very tight and takes some maneuvering to get undone at first, but it soon loosens up a bit and retightens securely. Overall, this is a great buy for anyone just getting started with off camera lighting or someone who needs a lightweight addition to their travel lighting kit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stand for the price For the price it is great! Indoor with a speedlite and a umbrella or softbox and you shouldn't have any issues! Outside and you better be ready to sandbag! Indoors I never had an issue but with a 43 octa on it even the slightest wind let it hurtle across the field. So indoors its amazing but outdoors you may want to spend a little extra for something heavier!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value! I have a few of these stands now. They are lightweight, fairly durable, and pretty inexpensive. I don't know that I would recommend these for someone utilizing studio strobes and large modifiers, but it does work well with speedlights and modifiers such as a midsized softbox (e.g. Apollo) or 40-60 umbrellas.
