Adorama, the New York photography superstore, has released a new range of light stands. The Flashpoint 7′ and 9′ AutoStands are heavy duty light stands designed for lone location photographers.
TheÂ AutoStands work on the same concept as the CheetahStand (itself based on the popular Red Wing stand): place it on the floor and the legs open automatically. Lift it up and the legs fold away again. This feature is especially helpful to wedding photographers and anybody shooting on location without an assistant, as it makes it possible to reposition lights easily with just one hand free.
Each standÂ has a reversible stud for mounting different kinds of lights and accessories. When closed, the 7′ and 9′ stands collapse to 30.0″ and 39.8″ in length, respectively. They can support loads up to 7 kg and 10 kg.
