The plastic mount for the bottom stud cracked the first time I tightened it.
R. van Bakel
Teeny tiny light stand that is great for getting the light under your subjects or for on the ground shots with small children and babies.
Jessica N Marshall
That being said, for a cheap way to mount a strobe down low in the studio it's great value.

As far as a back light stand it's okay. Won't last forever but hey, for the price what do you expect. I bought this one because I was intrigued by the lower leg stud to mount a strobe even lower. I do a lot of location work and it turns out you can't collapse the legs with that lower stud in place. Major downer. So you have to take that off every time you want to store it or put it in a bag. It's got a few pieces to it (which will get lost) and it's kind of a pain to put on in the first place.

For a studio this would be fine. Put it on and forget about it - as long as you don't need to collapse it.

INTRODUCTION:

I needed an ultra-compact light stand to attach to a backpack for short day-hikes. I wanted to shoot some pictures and have the option to use a speedlight off-camera. So I grabbed this little guy. The compact size when it's folded down is perfect, and it's lightweight and sturdy enough. But with some drawbacks. To the nitty-gritty:

PROS & CONS:

PROS: Tiny. Like, ridiculously small. It comes with drawbacks, but that's the biggest selling point for this thing. It has two mounts, which I question the usability or significance of (more on that later). It's decently well made for the price and weighs next to nothing.

CONS: This one is 100% my fault, but this thing is much shorter than I expected when fully opened. Doesn't even come to my chest when fully opened. Due to its compact size, the legs are tiny, offering weak stability - basically, expect this thing to tip over easily if bumped into. Also, I really don't see the use of the second mounting point on the leg. It has to be removed to fold the stand, and I guess I just don't get it. If you need a light a few inches from the ground, this thing can do it. I've yet to need it. Build quality is good for the money, but far from great - a lot of plastic, and you can't easily tighten the clamps to further secure it.

SUMMARY:

I like it, for what it is, but I wish I had read the measurements more closely. I fixated on getting something packable, assuming it would be at least tall enough for my purposes. Not so. At some point, I'll invest in a Manfrotto 5001B 74-Inch Nano Stand Replaces Manfrotto 001B - Black, as that is more what I wanted. My mistake.

If the height isn't an issue for you, this thing is a no-brainer - you get more than you pay for... just be sure to sandbag it well ;)

Bought this inexpensive product so I can mount my lights closer to the floor for background lighting or bottom up lighting in a clamshell configuration. I like the price and would have given this a higher rating were it not for the quality of the floor mount. A few months after using this, the plastic part of the mount developed a large crack. If they used an all metal mount, this would have lasted a lot longer. I still use it even with the crack but I expect this to break off soon. I have not seen any alternate product so I guess if you need a floor mount, you have no choice but to buy this and just be careful not to tighten the screw too much so it does not crack

There are many reviews critical of this tripod; I needed several tripods but ordered just one to evaluate. Out-of-the-box, the tripod is not usable! The legs can barely be moved, requiring repeated pulling on each of the three legs to move them at all. But, the problem is actually an assembly error, easily corrected. The manufacturer over-torqued the locking nuts on each of the eight machine screws used as pivot points for the legs. Thus over-tightened, the legs can barely be moved; the pivot points are far too tight. Just loosen the eight nuts so that the machine screws spin freely by hand; the nuts are self-locking and will not further loosen. Even with the eight machine screws free to spin in their place providing pivot shafts, the tripod is stable. The locking fingers for the two vertical, telescoping poles work well. As an inexpensive tabletop tripod for light tent lights or even as a floor background light tripod, this tripod works ok. It is not built like a Manfroto but surely costs a lot less! There is a knurled plastic knob provided on the top post that must be unscrewed to fit on a standard studio 5/8-inch fixture mount; just discard that part. There is another 5/8-inch post included to mount on one leg for a studio light placed near the floor; I find this useless but it is there but does not need to be installed and if installed prevents closing the tripod. After the nut-torque correction described above, I find this inexpensive tripod to be fully acceptable.

So, for the $13.00 it aint worth returning, but wow this thing is far from a manfrotto!
The joints are extremely difficult to articulate. Took me 5 mins to get them open. Then the second mount (on the left leg in the picture) was in a seperate bag filled with corrosion- I mean completely covered with corrosion to the point where I"m not even gonna use it.

I'd drop the extra dime for a name brand back light stand any time now. I might get one shoot out of this before it goes to the trash and the one I ordered from Adorama gets here.

It's stiff, the lower mounting peg is threaded into the leg, and does not include a travel bag so it's not the best to quickly setup and take down. That being said, for a cheap way to mount a strobe down low in the studio it's great value. I'm happy with it.
