Savage C-Stand Hands on review and shoot. During this hands on test we are checking out all the cool new features that Savage Universal added to make this stand out. (lol)
Some of the things you will notice in the video is the capability to put the stand into the corner and move the main riser to the back leg! This is something that I have not seen before in a C Stand and comes in handy for shoots in tight spaces.
Next we noticed the grip arm has a 1/4-20 screw to mount flashes and accessories on it and also a flat area to mount a traditional light – this is awesome – my lights will never slip around the arm again. While talking about the grip arm it comes with a clamp to hold a reflector or flag which is very useful.
The small riser stores away completely on the stand and has a baby pin that can be moved to lower a light – I was able to use 1 C-stand and do a clamshell lighting setup during my shoot or add a gel on the model.
This stand has a heavy duty construction and can hold more weight than similar stands at higher prices. We were impressed with how durable and well built the stand was and hope to see more grip gear come from Savage.
The blue soft grip was nice to grab the stand and not have it slip. Other nice features were the springs in the risers, the small heavy duty hook for wires or sandbags and the clamp.
