I gave this Ravelli Light Stand a 4 out of 5 rating for one reason; bang for the buck. What you are getting for the price is fairly impressive. Recently I bought an Aputure Amaran AL 528W LED panel light, a major upgrade from my cheap Neewer CN304 lights. The Light is easily 4x the size of my CN304’s so I was in the market for a heavy duty stand with a pretty price. I am already a fan of Ravelli’s Tripods so when I saw the $30 price I had no problem dropping the cash for this stand. My hopes for this product was to have a heavier stand that was strong enough for bigger lights and loads, durable and well-constructed, easily portable, and a reasonable price. I knew ahead of time there was no way to get it all for $30 bucks, however I was nicely surprised with what I received.
The shipping was handled by amazon and is thus nonapplicable to this review. Upon opening the box the Ravelli Light Stand gave off a very professional appearance. The stand comes inside a thick well-constructed carrying case that is almost worth the money itself. It keeps the stand padded and protected as well as adding ease to portability and a solid professional look. The Ravelli Light Stand fits snugly inside with no extra unnecessary wiggle room. The stand itself is near perfectly balanced between lightweight and sturdy making it trustworthy and practical. The base is quite wide, which at first I was not a fan of, but once you raise your $150 LED light 10 feet into the air you’ll find the wide base to be a reassuring comfort.
Upon Continued Use:
I have owned the Ravelli 10’ Light Stand for 4 months now and it has seen extensive use on sets. I have used it to mount everything from 1x1’ LED Panels to 5x6’ reflectors to ARRI 650 PLUS Fresnel barndoor lights (10.5lbs). I have pushed this light stand farther than I originally thought was possible and its stood up remarkably. Now here’s the catch the cast spigot adapter (the tip of the stand where the light mounts) unfortunately wiggles. While frustrating it is definitely not a deal breaker for me.
A Positive Experience:
I was assisting with Grip and Lighting on a friend’s feature film set three weeks ago, and confidently packed my Ravelli 10’ Light Stand. On the set this stand saved the day more than a dozen times! At one point, all of our ARRI light stands ($125) were used up and we needed to rig up another ARRI 650w PLUS. With the easily portable carrying bag I had my stand right there and was able to get the light up where the DP (Director of Photography) needed it before our actor got out of makeup. On the same set, we used it to mount a 5x6’ diffusion sheet 10’ up in the air to soften the moon light on the entire set.
A Poor Experience:
On day 2 of the same set we were shooting a very complex composite shot where we needed to have the same actor appear twice in a single frame. This is a fairly easy scene to shoot as long as the lights and camera stay flawlessly still between the two takes. We had everything staged perfectly, the sound guy was set, the camera rolling, the director yelled action and right away the light on the Ravelli Light Stand tilts down about 6 inches… all because the wobbly cast spigot adapter (the tip of the stand where the light mounts). The whole cast and crew had to stop and wait on the lighting department, myself included, to find a new stand that wouldn’t move.
*Budget friendly price of $30
*Remarkably high quality bag
*Wide base for stability
*Lightweight and portable
*10 feet tall
*Locks up tight enough to support professional light kits like ARRI
*Removable 1/4" or 3/8" mounting stump
*Wobbly cast spigot adapter (the tip of the stand where the light mounts)
*Becomes slightly flimsy at full length with lights over 4lbs
So, was it worth the money?
Yes! This felt like a steal when I got it and I have yet to change that opinion 4 months later. The wobbly head, while frustrating, could easily be fixed with some super glue or even an extra screw. The Ravelli Light Stand is one I can carry on to a set with confidence.
Would I buy it again?
Definitely! I’d like to have two more in my kit at least! For the price of these lights you could pick up four of them at the cost of a single ARRI Light Stand. (to add some perspective)
Would I recommend this product?
I already have. More than a few times I have had other lighting technicians on set ask me where I got my Ravelli Light Stand. They are always blown away when I tell them what I got it for, and usually expecting close to $100.
Thanks for reading!
Update Jan. 25, 2017:
I've used the stand a fair amount over the past couple of weeks, supporting a light that we moved around a construction project to take videos and photos documenting the construction. This Ravelli stand has worked really well, despite picking up a lot of dust from the construction site. I like that it goes *really* tall to get above things. So far, it's been sturdy and stable. Several construction workers have eyed the stand with my low-cost light (less than $40) and commented that it made a good construction light. So far, so good!
On the plus side, the legs open really wide, which is awesome, and the 10' lift is really nice. The air cushion effect works well too so the light won't come crashing down as soon as you loosen the screws. The knobs use metal bolts and metal inserts so they're reasonably strong, and the clamps seem pretty good too. It comes with a storage bag which seems a little flimsy but should get the job done. For the price, I'm very impressed with it.
I would say, these will be excellent for a home studio or other indoor situation. Just judging by the feel and build quality, they should last for a while. I'm using some Paul Buff DigiBees which are quite light so I doubt it'll stress the stands too much.
However, I don't think I'd recommend traveling with these constantly, it just feels like things will eventually loosen up, although for less than $40, replacing them wouldn't break the bank. I would recommend using a relatively light-weight strobe on it, that should help with the longevity.
As a piece of starter gear, this is actually pretty awesome. It feels strong enough that it'll hold up for a long time, it goes really high, it can go very wide which is nice for stability, and the price is excellent. If you did travel with it, they'll do the job, and I suspect that getting anything significantly better would cost a lot more. I'm extremely pleased with my purchase, and I bought two of them. Buy with confidence.
