LumoPro has announced a dual-use 7.5′ light stand and monopod, designed both for off-camera flash and for video shooting.
The LumoPro LP605M, based on the LP605 light stand (reviewed here), has three extra retractable feet and a mounting adapter so when you aren’t supporting small flashes and continuous lights you can use it to stabilise your camera for steadier stills and smoother panning shots on location.
â€œEveryone loves a multitasker,â€ said LumoPro’s Janae Miller in a press release. â€œThis stand minimizes the weight and space in your bag by doing two jobs â€“ light stand and monopod. For those location shoots in the middle of nowhere or flights where ounces count, do your back and your wallet a favor â€“ take the LP605M.â€
