Light stands and grip equipment provide a stable base for your lighting equipment, making them essential for any photography and video production. We carry a full selection of light stands for photography and video, from lightweight stands for quick and easy lighting setups to heavy-duty options for more elaborate lighting configurations.

In addition to light stands, we also offer a wide range of grip equipment to help you achieve the perfect shot. Our grip equipment includes clamps, arms, and other accessories designed to hold your lighting equipment in place and provide maximum flexibility with easy-to-adjust components. Whether you need to secure a light in a specific position or add an extra arm to your setup, our grip and lighting equipment have you covered.

Many of the light stands and grip equipment we carry are designed for compatibility with various types of lighting equipment, including strobes, continuous lights, and modifiers. This means that you can mix and match grip and lighting equipment to create a personalized setup that works for your project.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)


What Is the C in C-Stand?

The C in C-stand stands for "century," referring to the most common type of reflector used by these types of light stands for early film productions. C-stands are widely used pieces of grip equipment in the film and photography industry because of their versatility and stability. They consist of a heavy metal base with three legs that can be adjusted for height and a vertical column that extends upward to hold a variety of accessories.

How Do You Stabilize Light Stands?

Stabilizing light stands is crucial for the safety of the crew and the security of expensive lighting equipment on set. You can stabilize your light stands with sandbags, weights, and guy wires, and by making sure the legs of the stand are spread wide to create a stable base (if they're adjustable). In addition to safety, you also want to stabilize your light stand to make sure the lighting stays consistent and even.

Are Light Stands and Grip Equipment Universal?

Most light stands and grip equipment are designed with universal mounting options, such as 1/4-inch and 3/8-inch screws, to fit a wide range of lighting equipment. However, it's always a good idea to double-check compatibility before making a purchase.

How Often Should I Check and Maintain My Grip and Lighting Equipment?

Regularly checking and maintaining your equipment is crucial for safety and performance. Before each shoot, inspect your stands, clamps, and other grip equipment for any signs of wear or damage. Regular maintenance, like tightening screws and cleaning, can extend the lifespan of your equipment and ensure consistent results.

What Are Guy Wires and How Are They Used?

Guy wires are strong, tensioned cables used to stabilize taller or heavier light stands. They are anchored to the ground or other solid objects to provide additional support, particularly in windy conditions.

Can You Attach Multiple Lights to a Single Light Stand?

Yes, you can attach multiple lights to a single stand using multi-light mount adapters. However, make sure not to exceed the maximum load capacity of the stand to maintain stability and safety.

What Is a Boom Arm and When Would I Use One?

A boom arm is an extendable arm that attaches to a light stand or C-stand, allowing you to position lights or other accessories above the subject. This is useful for achieving dramatic lighting effects or for minimizing shadows.
