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 ;)

I was surprised to see how small it was, I didn't realize it was a background stand but I guess the title did say that :) Reminds me to pay attention to the listing description/details in the future. Very useful little stand, can't beat it for $15 bucks.

I LOVE this thing (but maybe because it serves a purpose other than what most people would buy this for). I bought this stand to use as a stand for my GlideCam Sled while I'm not using it. Because I already had the top part (or the "fork") that holds the GlideCam and SteadiCam sled on a stand, all I needed was the stand. I was looking for a small stand that would fit in my GlideCam bag. This little thing extends high enough to keep the sled of the ground and safe enough to where it would be hard to tip over while I'm not using it. If I would've bought this for a light I'm sure I would've loved it too as it comes with not only the top spot for the light, but also one at the bottom. As previous reviews state; it is very hard to open and close (which is not a big deal unless you're a 6 year old kid) and you can not close it with the bottom part attached (no big deal, just spend the extra 30 seconds putting it on or taking it off).

Really like this stand! I am really only using it to hold a background light. My light needs to be really low to the ground and this stand works perfectly for that. My light is a a bit heavy and could possibly tip the stand over but that nothing that a sandbag can't fix, but I didn't need one. Great little stand for my needs. It's really heavy duty, but I didn't need one in this case.

Pretty good quality stand, especially considering the low price. Locks are plastic, but seem reasonably well made. The lower mounting point is a little hokey and I'd probably just clamp something on if I needed to mount something that low.

I needed a stand for a background light (I was using an Arri 300 on a dimmer). This simple little stand did the job. I cannot say enough good things about this based on the fact that I paid under $20 for it! "Pro" brands would have wanted 5x the price something like this! It's not going to take an elephant's weight but for any light under 10lbs I'd trust it. (As a side note, I sandbag EVERY stand on the job. It's safer that way even if it's over kill. This stand, though a low center of gravity, is no exception.)

Makes a great table-top stand for macro and product shots, and also a good tall-enough background stand. The range of height makes it versatile. I use them, actually, under regular umbrellas, for even full-body lighting. As others noted, the lower stud needs to be removed for folding fully, but it's not too much work. I have a zip-log bag with an assortment of adapters and such anyway, so it just lives in there. In fact, I'm planning to drill a hole on a regular stand so I can put the lower stud on it, so the removability is a plus.
