Buying a sturdy C-Stand
6 months ago

Hi there,

I am planning on purchasing some C-Stands for my home studio and need some advice regarding the same. I currently own a Cowboy studio light stand to be specific, this particular set:

This works just fine when I am shooting indoors, but its worthless when shooting outdoor. It tilts and tips over every time there is a slight amount of wind. I am looking for something a little heavier and that can withstand some wind even with an umbrella on it.

Any advice is appreciated.

Thank you
