Umbrella swivel types and stand reviews...
Apr 7, 2013

I  looked at the Strobist website ( I am new to flash photography). They suggest to get a the light stand and a swivel.

I am looking in e-bay and for the swivel I found there are different types B, C, D, E and not sure what else. I found an explanation saying that C is more compact and lightweight than B and have less screws.. so it sounds much better. But then what about the other types?Which one should I buy. I found many in ebay like this one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Flash-Shoe-Umbrella-Holder-Swivel-Light-Stand-Bracket-C-Type-New-US-Shipping-/350591393733?pt=Camera_Flash_Accessories&hash=item51a0e01fc5 at around $7.

Also for the stand. I found this one but not sure if this is good quality or not: http://www.ebay.com/itm/140758130084?ssPageName=STRK:MESINDXX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1436.l2649

Pros:

- compact

- light

My concern is : "Max Weight = 3Kg" is this acceptable?

Thanks for your feedback
