The perfect addition for a studio portrait, beauty, product, food and fashion photographers, as well as videographers and cinematographers, whether you shoot in a studio or on location.

What is a C-Stand For Photography?

C-Stands (also known as Century Stands) was originally used in the early days of cinema production, where they were used to hold up large reflectors, that reflected the sunlight to illuminate the movie set before the introduction of artificial lighting.

Black Finish

This Black Turtle-Based C-Stand For Photography features a black finish, designed to absorb stray light,  preventing it from reflecting back onto your subject. Ideal for situations where you need to place your c-stand very close to your subject and need the utmost control of the light

Heavy-Duty Stainless-Steel C-Stand For Photography

Made from high-strength Stainless steel, the PiXAPRO Black Stainless Steel Century C-Boom stand can take loads of up to 10kg in weight. This makes it great for use with heavier light and modifier combinations. Since the stand itself weighs approximately 11kg, giving it a great deal of stability.

Versatile Accessory Arm and Grip Heads

The PiXAPRO Black Stainless Steel Century C-Boom comes with a 50-Inch Accessory Boom arm, and 2x 2.5-inch Grip heads. The accessory arm mounts to the c-stand via one of the grip heads, and the other can be used to hold various accessories, such as flags and scrims etc. The Grip arm itself features a standard 5/8-inc stud at either end enabling you to mount lights or other accessories directly to the arm.

5/8-inch Baby-Pin Connection

The PiXAPROBlack Turtle-Based C-Stand For Photography features the industry-standard 5/8-inch baby-pin connector, making it compatible with virtually any light currently on the market.

Detachable Turtle Base

The PiXAPRO Black Turtle-Based C-Stand For Photography features a detachable turtle base, making this C-Stand easy to store and transport. The legs feature a standard 1-1/8-inch Junior-Pin Receiver, enabling you to use the legs themselves as a floor stand when used in conjunction with a Junior-Pin to Baby-Pin adapter (available separately). It can also be used as a low stand for large production lights, such as Arri lights.

Spring-loaded Dampening System

PIXAPRO 300cm C-Stand features a spring-loaded dampening system, which absorbs the impact of any sudden drops, should you accidentally release the locking mechanism.

The PIXAPRO 300cm Black C-Stand with 50-inch boom arm is a great addition to any studio or location photographer’s stand arsenal. It is especially great for photographers that require highly-controlled lighting,  and don’t want to get light reflecting back into their scene which can sometimes happen when using the traditional silver-coloured C-stand.
