question

Would this be acceptable for a Apollo mega soft box to keep it close to the floor?
Asked by: Anonymous
I use these light stands on location with speed lights and a 26 Rapidbox, and they are perfect for smaller lights, but they might not be heavy duty enough for your needs. I would choose one B&H Photo's more heavy duty stands.

question

Can I use it with an xplor600/ Neewer600ad? Is it sturdy ? Thanks
Asked by: Cecilio
This stand has a rated capacity of 5 lb. The xplor600, with battery, weighs 5.9 lb. Personally, I would use a heavy duty light stand for the xplor600 (and still use sandbags).

question

Can I put a speed light on this?
Asked by: Sarah N.
Absolutely but you would need a shoe mount bracket with a cold shoe to mount a hot shoe speed light to the stand.

question

Will this stand hold up a Wescott Ice Light?
Asked by: Christopher H.
The Ice Light will attach to the 1/4 -20 mounting on the top of the stand. To add tilting options I would suggest an adjustable shoe mount or tilter bracket.

question

Will this work with the Westcott 26 Rapid Box?
Asked by: Michael S.
I love these, they're super light and compact. The'll work with the 26 Westcott Rapid Box with a speed light, but with that load it's certain to move about in the wind. You'll also need a sand bag to bring more weight to the base. I would still consider owning a second heavier stand for windy conditions or when an assistant is required to hold the stand not perpendicular to the ground and fully extended.
