Cheapest lightstands?

Discussion in 'Studio Equipment and Lighting' started by lazeeb0i, Mar 11, 2011.

  1. I'm looking for some really cheap lightstands to replace a broken one for my photo club's equipment, and don't need anything fancy, rather I'd have it as cheap as possible since it may not even see much use.
    Anybody know of some really cheap ones?

  3. Hmm, thanks. If I can't find anything cheaper, I'll probably go for those. Hoping for some chinese knockoff or something that's pretty much disposable. Gonna be letting people use them when we do OCL tutorials and stuff, so looking for quantity over quality.

    do remember, the cheaper they are, the more prone they are to breaking.

    Sometimes Ebay as some decent deals on them, you might even get a whole light setup for the same money. I wouldn't have the highest expectations but I'm sure it will do the job.
  6. Very much kept in mind. They'll see so little use that assuming they're not already broken out of the box, I'd be satisfied if they snapped after maybe ten uses in a year.
