No. It's the wrong size. This stand is not meant to be a tripod.
I don't care about 'shipping weight' for both being 20 pounds. How much does ONE of these without packing material weigh? I need something light. Sep 5, 2014
These are SUPER light weight! Very easy to carry around and store, even come with a carrying case for each. Depending on weather situations if you are shooting outside you will need something to hold one down so it doesn't tip. Id say one of these is roughly two pounds!
Clamp light? As in a cheap metal reflector with a spring clamp on the back? Then no, simply clamp it to the vertical post.
Can I attach a Spot Light to the top for lighting up a Mirror Ball? The Spot Lights have a U-Shape mounts that attach to side and a mounting hole at Nov 8, 2013
The stands have a standard mounting pin. The light I bought had a u bracket with a mounting boss at the bottom that had a standard mounting hole and it worked on fine. It you you tell me what light it is or send me a link to it I am sure I could more accurately answer your question.
They don't come with a cross bar, but if you had one that fit I believe that would work, as long as the back drop isn't too heavy for them.
Can I use these stands for the American DJ PAR-38B Can lights? Will I need to buy any brackets to attach them?? Nov 22, 2014
It depends on what your existing can lights have on them to attach to the threaded bolt on the stand
I do it all the time, I've had them for about 8 months now.. I attach 43'' umbrella and Yongnuo 468 or 560, also use them for neewer 160 video light .. I generally work with an assistant, so if I'm shooting outdoors I have someone keep a hand on them because with an umbrella attached they will blow over.. I'm usually on a tight budget and looking for the most economical equipment that's not total garbage, my YN 560 cost me $37 bucks and the 468 maybe $100, if you have $500 or $600 flashes or if money is not an object for you, get something else
