    Manfrotto 003 Reviews

    003 Backlight Stand Base with Spigot (Black, 3.5") is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 29.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hard to find gem We use this for backlights so that there are no shadows on the background. This product is seldom listed and hard to find, unless you know exactly what you are looking for. It costs a mere pittance!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made, Pro quality gear This piece comes with a female 5/8 stud receptacle & with a double-ended male 5/8 stud, so it can be used as a floor-level base, with a Magic Arm, or short extension. very versatile.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always a good quality and value I have always been pleased with Manfrotto quantity and value and the same goes for this stand

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Convenient, affordable, tricky to use. I use this for background lighting or other uses where lowest possible fixture placement is needed. Folds and stores easily, though perhaps too easily. In my experience the tripod legs can fold together at unwanted times. I sometimes resort to cable ties to keep them unfolded, which I find a bit kludgey. I would recommend it with these caveats.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple and very solid Very solid and extremely simple construction. There is not much that can go wrong with this stand, and it folds up easily for transport/storage. It goes well with my Manfrotto compact light stand and easily fits in Pelican 1510 & 1610 cases. It's a little heavier than I expected, since the legs are solid metal, but it's not heavy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little stand This stand is well made and very low to the ground. Works great for back lights, but also for positioning lights low to the ground or for holding things on a magic arm. I have been using them with with a bracket and fork to hold white foam core pieces as reflectors or black ones as flags. Works really well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Base I use this with the two below items to make a portable, compact, covert travel tripod. You can take it into places the conventional tripod isn't allowed. Also small enough to fit in a small camera bag to setup a tripod for low level shooting. Many applications that you can use this on.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly as promised Well-made and sturdy. I'm hoping to utilize this as a fill flash holder for when I shoot teams in the bright AZ sun! Should be perfect for getting the light low enough to put some light under baseball hats. It's exactly what I've been looking for! ...Good purchase so far at leat!

    Does this base have incorporated detents (i.e., stop(s)) to stabilize the legs when opened into a symmetrical (working) postion?
    Asked by: Bruce
    No, but the they're pretty firmly packed on top of each other and once "opened" won't close on their own. Also, pretty much the entire legs sits flat on the ground.
