Review: Cheap Light Stand
If you want a decent, inexpensive light stand or want to upgrade from your PVC light stands, look no further. Here I detail my findings about a low-cost stand that will hold 1-2lb. lights and not collapse. It has a nice locking mechanism that serves its plastic collars well and even includes a 1/4-20 male thread on the end, so you can instantly mount any LED light or sound recorder or camera or whatever. It's a full-featured stand that will serve you well if you handle it with care.
