How To Separate the Feet of a PiXAPRO Century C-StandRead more
The PIXAPRO C-stand (or Century Stand) are widely used by both photographers and movie makers alike due to its robust and sturdy build quality. They are also capable of holding heavy equipment such as large light banks, and strobes with large or heavy modifiers due to the solid stainless-steel metal construction. The very sturdy & strong stand is the perfect tool for any portrait, beauty, product, fashion photographer or videographer, in a studio fixed location who uses large modifiers.
The master 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 to catch and reflect the sunlight to illuminate the set before the introduction of artificial lights later.
It is a sturdy durable light stand to hold any lighting using the traditional universal 5/8” spigot. This is the most popular fixture for lights or flashes which covers the vast majority currently available on the market, with a maximum load capacity of 10kg. The detachable base also includes a 1-1/8” junior-pin receiver, for heavier lights such as Arri lights used in large productions.
It features a heavy-duty 50” boom arm attached using the 2.5” grip heads, this allows you to position your lighting in angles not available to normal stands. This works great for use as an overhead light, hair light or copy stand. The included grip heads also allow you to use additional modifiers with your stands like flags, diffusers or reflectors.
The 9’ 8” universal light stand is perfect for use in the studio with heavier light and modifier combinations, due to the solid stainless-steel construction. The turtle base legs have a large footprint diameter giving you a stable stand for your equipment and maximum stability, with a detachable base to make transporting and storing the stand a little easier thanks to the unique varied leg heights to stack or nest the base, folding them flat.
The PIXAPRO Heavy Duty C-Stand is entirely made of metal with a stainless chrome finish & can be extended to a full length of 300cm (118”), which can then collapse right down to 145cm minimum height, making it storable and portable, an all-round excellent stand to use for general use.
PIXAPRO 300cm C-Stand features a thick sturdy central column which has a spring-loaded dampening system which prevents sudden drops to minimise the risk of damaging your equipment or causing injury to yourself.
The PIXAPRO Heavy Duty C-Stand Light Stand with a boom arm allows you to mount your light stand up to 300cm in height, offering a stable platform to use and move your lighting effortlessly overhead. This makes it an essential piece of kit for the modern studio, great for portrait, beauty, product, fashion photographers or videographers.

The comparison needs to meet the following:
Absolutely thrilled with my purchase. It is built like a tank, durable and sturdy. It has Turtle base which is detachable. This stand is on a heavy side and may not be convenient for travelling and outdoors but I wanted something for my home studio so it is perfect as it can hold my Strobe light with my 105cm Pixapro Rice bowl softbox without any worries that it could fall. I would definitely recommend this C Stand over Neewer or other brands on Amazon.
