There is a reason why tripods are wider based and more heavily built than light stands. So I wouldnt mount my camera on a light stand. Why do you need to mount the camera on a stand if you are using a flash?

I think what gonzogolf was getting at was if you're using a flash to light your subject, what do you need a tripod for? If you need a tripod to let in more light, what are you using a flash for?

I need tripod because I use it for life view to take about 1000 or more picture of guess and client.
I just Google it, seam like I have to use Studio stand, but it cost over 1000$ for studio stand.

You could get this bracket then mount the whole thing on a tripod. A light stand is not going to be sufficient

Hello. Have you considered a monopod and the light stand? Cheers.
