Im looking at getting a good sturdy light stand (as il be using it for a lot of outdoor photography) but i dont want to have to get a c stand.

In terms or build quality/sturdiness which of the two would be better for my needs? (i know they are different heights as well)

They would be mainly used for just speedlights at the moment. but i would liek to use them for a monolight setup as well


Canon 60D - 24-70mm 2.8 L II - 70-200mm 2.8 L IS II - Speedlight 600 ex-rt - Broncolor Move 1200L pack + A2L pack + MobiLED flash head

The 1004BAC is only $2 more than the 1005BAC and goes to 12' at the expense of a higher minimum height. I like mine.

I have two 1004BAC's as well and I like them too. There are heavier duty stands out there, though. One thing worth pointing out is that if you're going to use it outside a lot, you might want to look for a stand that has an adjustable leg so you can set it up on uneven ground. The 1004BAC does not have that feature.

I'm soon to be looking for some heavier stands for outdoor use as well, and also don't want to go with C-stands yet (space). Uneven ground isn't much of a big deal for me... land is pretty flat where I am ;) Interested to see feedback...


I use manual exposure settings on the copy machine
