Yup, WD-40 would help ... or just don't get stuff made out of mild steel soaking wet.

Oh god, rust mark on the outside, there's like a blue spot and a tiny rust mark...

I know I probably worry too much. After all ships are rusty and they don't fall apart, eh?

Thanks Lon! I feel a bit better now. Avenger stands cost around 400 euros here in Europe... What if I want to use it outside again? What if it rains? Think it'll still take and last a lifetime of abuse?

Please link me, i gotta see this for myself....

I routinely forget mine in the pack of my pickup truck for weeks at a time. They get soaked all the time. I don't even bother to dry them. There is rust around the screws but otherwise the stands are fine. I have been mistreating c stands this way for years and they still do their job.

Avenger A2030D kit - 179 Euros (on sale from usual 230 Euros)

Manfrotto branded A2030D kit is 250 Euros :confused:

http://www.ltt-versand.de …ble-A2030DKIT::54708.html (external link)

Not close to 400 Euros, but still bloody expensive when you see B&H prices. :rolleyes: If the guy really paid 400 Euros I think he might be ripped off. :rolleyes:

Frame saver?

I cannot recommend this! That stuff is really gross if it gets on your hands and should not be on the outside where you touch the stand. However, if you slide the extension in and out, the frame saver *will* get on the outside.

The picture they used for the product looks like it comes pre-rusted.

Haha that's how all modern studio equipment looks. You should see how the silks look and smell. The last time we had MSE gear show up on set we swear it was used for a cat litter box.
