Its not bad, given the price
on 16 September 2013
There are some shortcomings, but I am certainly not an expert in this area. I found the legs hard to collapse, quite stiff actually, and the stability is okay but not perfect. It does seems a little on the light side to me, and once it almost tipped when fully extended without too much weight... I dunno if i would trust it with an expensive strobe attached.
On the flip side its small and has a neat carry case, easy to take on location, just would be mindful of strong wind, indoors is perfect.
I ordered a second from the supplier, and its completely different! Why do they do that, infuriating!
Its awful quality second time round, the carrying case is wafer thin and feels paper like. The topmost neck clip is weak and with any weight on it slips? Seriously, this is barely a light stand! A Really terrible product second time round... Didn't think that much of the first, but compared to the second time round in retrospect it was a steal, this one is not even worth the modest price!
