Need a Lift?

By Allan Weitz

Even if you're six feet tall in your stocking feet, sometimes you need to get a bit higher in order to nail the best shooting angle. To fill the need we now carry the Pearstone Three-Step Ladder, a lightweight yet sturdy aluminum alloy step ladder that folds up to a tidy 3.5 inches, making it easy to stow away when not in use.

The Pearstone Three-Step ladder weighs a wee bit over 18 lbs, is 18.5" wide, 47" tall, and has a top step height of 30". To make getting from point ‘A' to point ‘B' easy, the Pearstone Three-Step ladder has a set of 4" TPR bearing wheels that fold inward, flush to the ladder when not needed.

Each step is certified to support up to 330 lbs, which means it can handle the average wedding photographer, 2 camera bodies, 4 lenses, a flash, battery pack, and wireless trigger… or a skinny guy with 8 dozen point-and-shoot cameras and a large bottle of Avian in his pocket. And at around $99.95, it's an affordable solution for shooting over crowds and other occasions that call for elevated points-of-view.
