The Studio Robust C-Stand Stainless-Steel Turtle Grip & 20" Arm Set 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, and strobes with large or heavy modifiers as well as other accessories such as scrims and flags, etc. C-Stands were originally used in the 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 Studio C-Stand Stainless with 20” Boom is made from stainless steel, with a shiny chrome finish, which makes it extremely strong, and 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 161cm Studio C-Stand Stainless features a thick sturdy two-sectioned telescopic central column, that can be extended, giving this c-stand a minimum height of 71cm and a maximum height of 161cm.

161cm Studio Robust C-Stand Stainless with 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, flags, etc.

Detachable Turtle-Base Design

This 161cm Studio C-Stand Stainless 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 161cm Studio C-Stand Stainless 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.
