I use this product with my canon 430EX speedlite flash. It is easy to set up and lightweight but sturdy enough to place near people dancing around on a dance floor. In order to attach your flash you will also need this:Interfit STR117 Umbrella Bracket with Hot Shoe Adapter[@]

these stands are my only complaint from this impact lighting kit i purchased. i'm used to air-cushioned heavy duty PBL light stands, and these are just very flimsy. don't get me wrong, they work, and for indoor projects they will do fine, but i wouldn't take them outside and expect them to survive a day of shooting. I feel like I could snap these in half with just my bare hands. with proper care, they will last me. just need to be very careful with them. they are very lightweight. even with 20lb sandbags on them, it was swaying in the wind and it looked as if it would snap. scary!

very good for it's price

Comments about Impact Light Stand, Black (6'):

Very good for it's price, Legs are a little light weight, so don't put heavy lights with extra battery pack on this stand. I use it for mounting a reflector on it and because of the stands light weight I must use sand bag to hold down when using outdoors.

The price is right. And it works.

Comments about Impact Light Stand, Black (6'):

I needed something lightweight and compact that works--because my whole set up (camera, lights, mikes) has to go over my shoulder and be easily schlepped. I was surprised that at its nominal cost, there was nothing cheesy about this item.

Cheap

Comments about Impact Light Stand, Black (6'):

I own two of these and they both are broken. One the top pole slides right out and doesnt lock in anymore. The other the bolt for one of joints popped off. They feel sturdier than some light stands that came with a cheap lighting kit I bought yeara ago but those stands still function.

A great bang for buck situation, it is not the strongest stand out there, I recommend it mostly for indoor use. Other than that it works perfectly and is lightweight, easy to move around and use with my aputure led panels.

Perfect for transition to "next step" in photo lighting

Comments about Impact Light Stand, Black (6'):

I needed a simple portable light stand that could be used with my existing flash and camera (70D). This stand and umbrella combination were not only easy to set up and use but proved to be a great "next step" for improving the quality of my shots.

Kind of light duty, but I'm a hobbyist and can treat it gently. Otherwise, it does everything I expected it to.

Comments about Impact Light Stand, Black (6'):

I have a couple of these to hold video LED lighting (Yongnuo Air) & Lastolite collapsible 5x6' backdrops. Lightweight for carrying on the go.   If I had known that I would one day own a Manfrotto rolling case (which fits the Manfrotto nano stands) I would have gone for the nano, but I have no regrets owning the Impact stands for the price.  I would go for something sturdier if you plan on using it a light stand.

Comments about Impact Light Stand, Black (6'):

Bought this mainly to hold a flash for background lighting. Totally adequate. Threw a bracket on top to hold the flash and a 45" umbrella just to test its stability. Again, totally adequate. Inside use, of course. Might be fine outdoors with a small weight and VERY LITTLE WIND. Won't hesitate in getting another if needed.

Nice stand for the money. I was looking for something just like this. Inexpensive and lightweight for light duty indoor work. This stand met those qualifications and I'm pleased.

This is fine for the price. Don't put more weight on it then you would expect to for the size and price, but for light studio stuff this is a good deal.
