Product Information
Description

To see a customer review of the PIXAPRO 300cm C-Stand with 50 Inch Boom Arm Set with Adjustable Foot, Please see the video below. Review by Ryan Priestnall of Northreel which is Production Company based In Manchester, England.

The C Stand (or Century Stand), comes from the early days of motion picture production. The C-stand was widely used to hold up large reflectors which were used to catch and reflect the sunlight to illuminate the set before the introduction of artificial lights later on. C-Stands are still widely used to this very day, by both photographers and movie makers alike due to their robust and sturdy build quality. They are also capable of holding fairly heavy equipment such as large light banks, and strobes with large or heavy modifiers.

C Stands are characterised by their nested/collapsible tripod base (also known as a “turtle base”) with a lock system. The stepped height of each of the base legs allows individual legs to be set at any angle and also allows multiple stands to be used in closer proximity than you can with regular light stands. It is equipped with one 5/8 inch spigot, 2 of 2.5" grip head and 50" boom arm, which can conveniently hold studio lights, softboxes and other accessories, such as gobos, flags or bounce cards.

This particular C Stand features a unique sliding leg which can be moved up and down the central column to allow you to use your C-Stand on uneven surfaces. So slopes, stairs or even rocks or if you are shooting on location won’t be an issue with this C Stand. It also features a 50 inch boom arm and 2x 2.5inch grip heads. It has a minimum height of 145cm and can be extended up to 300cm and has a maximum load capacity of 11kg.

This C-stand is entirely made of metal with a stainless chrome finish. The boom arm is fully detachable allowing you to also use it as a regular C Stand. The legs can be folded flat requiring minimal storage space when not in use. This is the perfect piece of studio equipment for your next photographic venture.

  • Equipped with one 5/8 inch spigot, 2 of 2.5" grip head and 50" boom arm
  • Features a unique sliding leg which can be moved up and down the central column

PIXAPRO 300cm C-Stand with 50 Inch Boom Arm Set and Adjustable Legs

Heavy but really good quality and won't fall over.

(5)   By: Ebay Customer | 14 September, 2018

PIXAPRO 300cm C-Stand with 50 Inch Boom Arm Set and Adjustable Legs

Top Top quality heavy and sturdy c-stand. Mine is with adjustable leg and it was the second one that I purchased from tsl-2009. These are Pixapro stands: not bending or wobbly when extended (unlike the £30-40 black general stands, especially those with a boom arm).

These stands also have springs inside tubes for a soft landing protecting your heavy flash lights or camera from an accidental shuttering impact. In addition aside from the safety and quality aspects these c-stands will look great and professional (as well as stylish in my opinion) in any setting

Sturdy,steady and efficient. Who does not need at least one these?

(5)   By: Poul Christian Elholm | 11 April, 2018

Awesome product

I have now three of these C-Stands. They are heavy, sturdy, and gives a good professional feel to the stand. I have a few 120cm soft-boxes, among other equipment, and with these stands I don’t even have to use sandbags as support. Makes other C-stands, from often more expensive brands, looks like a straw in the wind. They have basically replaced my regular light stands and I will most likely never use my boom arm (another brand) again. I have used my C-Stands in studio setup, on location indoor and outdoor and I tend to like them more and more. All in all, well worth the money and I can't image go back to using regular stands, unless there will be a specific task the C-Stands can't handle, and that is yet to be seen.

Pixapro 300cm C stand with 50" Boom arm and adjustable leg

This is one solid stand and makes everything else i have used look flimsy.
I bought this to use with one of my Elinchrom Lights with a Beauty dish, i bought an Avenger baby pin to use with the extra knuckle as you need one for a Beauty dish (look on youtube about c stands and baby pins), the stand did not even flinch and that was without the pixapro sand bag on it.
I would look on youtube about c stands as they have a disipline of their own, they are so versatile why do you think they use them on film sets
If you want a solid and professional stand that will last decades then look no further
Well worth the money

(5)   By: Rob Kennedy | 26 October, 2017

So happy with it I'm ordering a second one.

Excellent construction and quality. Puts my regular light stands to shame. This is a SOLID piece of equipment and it looks good as well. Really good value, so much so I'm ordering another. It even comes with an extra knuckle. Highly recommended.

Love it

Very heavy, rock solid and beautifully made, very reassuring when you've got expensive lights and larger modifiers fitted. I now have two of them so that should show how pleased I am

C-stand with 50 inch boom arm and adjustable foot

I purchased this product because I was looking for something with a little more flexability having an adjustable leg has given me this, I used this on a stair shoot and was perfect for the job. The overall build quality is superb, no issues with delivery, as always great price!

Questions & Answers

Answer:

To set up the feet for your C-Stand, is loosen the sliding leg, and move it up the central column slightly, which will then give you the room to pull the remaining two legs apart as demonstrated in the video below. Please e aware that feet do require a bit of force to pull apart.

Answer:

The legs are not designed to be unscrewed as they are tightened to ensure the stand is very sturdy. In order to open these legs you will need to pull the legs apart to separate them, as the c-stand is designed to be very heavy duty you will need to use quite a lot of force. On the collars of the legs there is a slight lip that keeps them locked in place, you will need to pull it out of this lip. This should cause it to move and if you continue to turn the leg is will then lock in place again to keep it secure.

Answer:

The boom that comes with this C stand has a standard 5/8" stud at the end of the boom, so you will be able to mount your studio flash onto the end of the boom without any additional accessories.

Answer:

All parts of this C-Stand are metal (with the exception of the cable management clips). The tightening knobs are also metal, they just have a black rubber cap over them to protect it as shown in the photo below.

Answer:

Thanks for your queries. At the maximum length boom, the maximum load is 8kg. There will not be a problem for PIXAPRO C Stand to hold heavy item as it all makes of solid metal.However, we are highly recommend to place an counter weight either on the leg or bottom of the center pole to avoid it tipping over (not on the boom arm). Here is a link to the 4.5kg counterweight
