I think it's a great marketing ploy, especially if they're fat, it shows how substantial the C stands are.

Well it seems the consensus currently is c-stands. Any recommendations on which ones?
Thanks!

I have both C and regular tripod style. I use both at the same time haha


Don't try to confuse me with the facts, my mind is already made up.

Alright a split vote. I actually have two tripod stands currently. They are nicer for location work. Any suggestions as to which tripod based stands are strong enough to hold the 500's or 600's plus a soft box?
Thanks-

I like the Avenger A635B as a lighter option. My heavier duty stand is an Avenger A4039CS boom stand, and it's super stable. A little big to carry around, but workable.

I think I'm going to get the Avenger A0040B as my "lighter" large location stand, primarily for the large footprint and leveling leg. Avenger does make some smaller versions in both aluminum and steel as well that would be more than adequate.

I'm mainly thinking about stability for location work though. In terms of something being strong enough to support a 500/600 with a softbox pretty much anything Avenger makes would be fine. Indoors I use a A630B stand with my 500BXri and softboxes all the time.

Nice, a strobe that can stop the Flash. Hello pro pack. Flash duration 20,000 +? :) I hope it's cheaper than Profoto Move pack.

Can't wait for more.

BTW - I'm under NDA on what I've seen in regards to new products at Elinchrom. But i can say that there is a new photograph on the Elinchrom website which has a clue about something that will be released in the future.

Are you an Electrical Engineer? There is a job open! Man, i wish i had those qualifications: http://www.elinchrom.c​om …b=about_us_-_jobs#content (external link)

Thanks for the suggestions! I will be looking into the Avenger line a little more. I actually have the A4039CS. And yes it is a bit big to haul out hiking to a remote location.
Also have two manfrotto medium duty stands. Just looking for one / two more stands.
