The C-stand (or Century Stand), is a special robust, heavy-duty type of light stand that is widely used in both the filmmaking and photography industries. Made from Stainless Steel, C-stands are capable of holding heavy lighting fixtures such as light banks, strobes with large or heavy modifiers as well as other accessories such as scrims and flags etc. C-Stands were originally used in early days of cinema and were used to hold up large reflectors which reflected Sunlight to illuminate the set before the introduction of artificial lighting later.
Robust Stainless-Steel Construction
The 161cm C-Stand with 20” Boom is made from stainless steel, with a shiny chrome finish, which makes it extremely strong, capable of taking loads of up to 10kg in weight. This makes them ideal for heavy light-fixtures used in TV and Film productions, as well as in professional photographic studios.
Telescopic Central Column
This C-Stand features a thick sturdy two-sectioned telescopic central column, with a spring-loaded dampening system to absorb any sudden-drops, to reduce the risk of injury to yourself, or damage to your equipment. The Central column can be extended, giving this c-stand a minimum-height of 71cm and a maximum height of 161cm.
20” Boom Arm
This C-Stand comes supplied with a detachable 20” Boom arm with 2x 2.5” Grip heads for added versatility. The boom arm can be used to mount light fixtures enabling them to be positioned above or below your subject. It can also be used to hold accessories, such as reflectors, scrims, and flags etc.
Detachable Turtle-Base Design
This C-stand features a detachable-base which makes storage and transportation a lot easier. The base of the C-Stand features a 1-1/8” Junior-Pin receiver, which used together with the main central-column of the C-stand, or can be used with heavier light lighting fixtures that use the larger Junior pin connection such as Arri lights, enabling you to use the legs like a heavy-duty floor stand.
Varied Leg Height
This c-stan has three nested legs with varying leg-heights, which enables you to position multiple c-stands really close together in a way that is not possible with regular light stands. The legs also fold flat for storage and transportation.
The 161cm C-Stand with 20” Boom arm, is an essential piece of kit, ideal for any modern studio to fit the needs of photographers and videographers everywhere.
PLEASE NOTE: The Adjustable Legs DO NOT require tools to set up. They can simply be pulled apart with your hands as demonstrated in This Video.
