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 has 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.

What Is the C in C-Stand?

The C stands for "century" in C-stand and this refers 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.
