Lumopro 4-section stand

A surprisingly sturdy and well-built stand for the money. This gets me more than enough hight for most things I want to do and it comes with the added benefit of being air cushioned, which really helps to avoid accidents with your gear when you’re in a hurry.

As long as I’m working indoors I don’t have any problems with putting a big Lastolite octabox on this stand, though I wouldn’t trust it without an assistant to hold it for me if I’m outside with wind and an uneven surface.
