Featuring a unique and often imitated design, the lightweight aluminum 5001B Nano Light Stand from Manfrotto is the ideal space-saving support that's especially valuable for shooters on location.
What makes the 5-section stand special are its legs that fold upward to the center column, making the stand's length just 19.3" while weighing just 2 lb. For a small stand, the 5001B Nano has a wide, stable footprint of 39.4". In fact, you can spread the legs wide enough to position the stand flat on the floor. The stand breaks down just as fast as it sets up, while its legs have rubber tips to avoid scratching.
Compact, Lightweight, and Quick Setup
Using a clever reverse folding leg design, the legs unfold quickly for use and fold upward against the center section, bringing the total folded length to just 19.3"
With a maximum height of 6.2', the stand will support lights or other gear weighing up to 3.3 lb
Standard Top Stud
The black anodized stand has a 5/8" top stud topped by a 3/8"-16 thread, which is topped by a removable 1/4"-20 threaded top
Despite its size, the bantam stand can support up to 3.3 lb at maximum extension
Unique Leg Action
Instead of limiting leg spread (as most stands do), the rectangular legs can be spread fully, so the stand's 39.4" stable leg spread puts it literally at ground level
