Customer Reviews

This is EXTREMELY well made, and very small and light.
The Den
I highly recommend this Manfrotto tripod, it is of the same high quality design and build as the other Manfrotto products I own.
Matthew F. Cummings
This is the perfect stand for a light weight, on location shoot with speedlites.

I have plenty of lightstands.. ground level, 1.5 ft, 6 foot stands, 8 feet, 10, feet, 13 feet.. but they all have a problem (at least the 6+ foot ones) - they're big, bulky and heavy. A 6 foot stand can easily be 3 1/2 feet and 5 lbs when folded up.

Not a problem if you're setting it up in 1 location, but if you plan to carry it around for even a few hours, it's a big pain (besides the weight and odd-bulk that won't attach do anything, you'll often hit stuff with it or bang it around). That's where the 5001B nano stand is perfect!

The stand folds down to about 18 inches long, about 4-5 inches thick (because of the legs) and about 2 pounds. At this size, it can attach to most camera bags/backpacks.

It unfolds quickly but can be a bit confusing at first (it unfolds in a way other than most lightstands). It uses 5 locking screws (one for the legs, 4 for the height).

The tip is a 3/8" thread, but it comes with a Manfrotto 3/8" to 1/4" adapter of high quality ( Manfrotto 015 1/4-Inch-20 Male 20mm Long to 3/8-Inch Female Adapter - Replaces 3358 ) a great piece which will work on all 3/8" threads to convert it to 1/4". Note that it does not include any type of "coldshoe" for speedlights (you need to supply your own).

The legs are very thin (about 1/4" by 1/2" and maybe 16" long), these are not rounded legs like most stands. There are rubber tips on the ends (to prevent sliding, I'm guessing).

When fully extended, it is quite wobbly. I use it for camera-mounted Speedlights and for that it works great. I don't know if I'd put a studio strobe on it.

It's a bit silly how hard it is to get information about the height of this stand.

19 inches - folded storage length
19.3 inches - minimum height
72 inches - fully extended risers, with the legs splayed out at maximum 39" diameter circle, meaning parallel to and lying on the ground for greatest stability.
84 inches - fully extended risers, with the legs at roughly 45 degree angle with the ground, 26" diameter circle, usable with care (flash with umbrella hovering over one of the legs, no wind)
89 inches - absolute maximum height with legs set at minimum splay 14" diameter circle, extremely unstable and inadvisable, but will hold a flash indoors if no perturbations

So in summary, maximum usable height about 7 feet, maximum height with maximum stability 6 feet.

The five riser sections are well constructed and unexpectedly sturdy. The weakness is in the folding legs. They are not circular, but rather flat sections roughly 19" long, 9/16" wide, and 3/16" thick. Due to the small thickness and location of the rivets close to one end of the legs, this becomes a design for a tuning fork. The stand wobbles easily and is highly susceptible to torsion. It does no good to have a strong body (riser sections) and weak legs. Manfrotto should have allocated more of the weight/size budget to the legs, even at the expense of the body. Users typically have problems with stands wobbling and falling over, not with riser sections fracturing or buckling from stress. They flubbed the design.

It wouldn't have killed Manfrotto to include a cheap nylon bag for something meant for compact portability.

This is EXTREMELY well made, and very small and light. However, it's also so small and light that anything you put up top should be similarly light... As it waves and flexes from side-to-side.

Great for someone who is size-conscious, but not recommended for holding umbrellas in a breeze...

what can i say? i bought this as a recommendation from our favorite strobist and i'm glad i listened. just note that this is for portability. quick assignments and stuff like that. it's very light and might blow away with an umbrella hooked up but you can take this anywhere. i just throw this in my Big Bazooka Tripod Case along with my Westcott 43" Optical White Satin Collapsible Umbrella (another recommendation from Mr. Hobby.) and my Manfrotto 190XPROB 3 Section Aluminum Pro Tripod very handy for any location shoot. just hope it's not too windy outside. This is my little studio anywhere setup.

In a nutshell, this stand combines great build quality with awesome portability.

When folded down, I hardly even notice its size/weight. It couples well with the Manfrotto 026 adapter, and has the height range for all my portraiture needs. There are no sharp edges, and everything feels just right when I'm assembling it. It's also a breeze to put up as well as to put away.

Unfortunately, this portability might also be its major con - the stand may not be stable enough in less than favorable conditions.

This has not been an issue for me as I tend to use it primarily in indoor scenarios, but I can't imagine this as being usable outdoors especially with an umbrella attached. For me portability was key - so I'm a happy customer.

Note that I use this adapter in conjunction with a Manfrotto 026 Swivel Lite-Tite Umbrella Adapter, Westcott 43" Optical White Satin Collapsible Umbrella, and a Stroboframe Bracket Shoe Mount. This combination works exceedingly well for my purposes.

Happy Strobing!
