    Can this or similar stand be adapted for a mirrorles camera? Regular monopods with feet are not stable they sway. Ive tried several.
    Asked by: ry
    Yes, this stand can be adapted to a camera mount but I would not recommend it. It will not be stable and if you do not attach a head to it, you will have no way of panning and tilting the camera.

    question

    Can a short Manfrotto BAC stand, like this one (the Manfrotto 1051BAC) stack with a taller BAC stand, such as the 1004BAC, using the Quick Stack System?
    Asked by: Yi Fan C.
    No, the legs are not as tall so it won't hook in.

    question

    Is it good enough for a Flash 30 inches Softbox (all together weight 5 lbs) ?
    Asked by: Patton
    I think it would be fine. I find since the base is so small if you use it outside with any sort of modifier, it will blow over in a second. Using a send bag helps, or a human. Awesome stand though.
