The Century Stand or simply known as C-Stand is the most common type of gripping equipment in the filmmaking industry used for mounting lighting fixtures and lighting modifiers or accessories.
The C-stand 3.30 m has a sturdy steel construction and consists of an unique base and a removable central column.
The detachable "turtle" base can be easily removed for transport. The innovative design on the Century Stand base allows for the legs to be individual set at any angle to be positioned in locations not possible with classic stands.
The legs are staggered in height, allowing them to fit in, around, and under furniture, props, and other lighting stands.
The C-stand base can be used separately as a very low stand for back lights featuring 1-18" mounting receiver. The small footprint of the base allows for positioning the stand in tight spaces and the compact, foldable design of the legs saves storage space during transport.
These heavy duty light stands are very stable and able to support more weight than any other light stand. Can be used together with a gobo arm to boom small lights and accessories like scrims, flags, reflectors.
The black painted surface of the stand helps to eliminate any unwanted reflections, making it suitable for studio applications.
