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!

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.

Holds my 330 LED light and small soft box OK. Probably not suitable for outdoor use.

Lasts a long time for my uses indoors. I take care of my gear and don't throw it around so maybe that's why. A good buy. This is my second stand and the first one is still doing great.

Exactly What I Need

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

I'm a professional makeup artist and was in need for a new light. This stand that I order with my new LED light, works so well. It is sturdy and easily adjustable. Even after being moved around and adjusted multiple times in one day, I didn't have to worry about it once.

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

This light stand is certainly NOT the heaviest, or the strongest, but for the price, I've been very pleased. I mounted our Aperture Light Storm on it, no problems at all. I probably wouldn't use this if there were a lot of traffic around but great for what we've been using it for.

Good, light-weight stand for the money.

By Cooper

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

Decent stand for the money. Only issue I can think of is the pinch points at each extension; they feel less than fully solid. They are very lightweight stands so you don't want to be dropping 20 lbs. sandbags on them or putting anything over a 500w light. I got these for a couple small LED panels and they work fine for that purpose.

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

This is a good general purpose light stand. I use it mainly to hold an off camera speedlight with or without an umbrella or softbox. Seems sturdy for the price and the overall quality is not bad. Works good for weddings or portraits when I need a little bit of extra light.

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

They are exactly what I expected. Very light duty, nothing heavy, but for the price they work well to mount small led lights. i wouldn't use them for large heavy lights, but for my purposes they are great. They fold up easily and are light weight and easy to transport. A good value for the money.
