Suggestions for Ultra Compact Lighting Stand?
Jul 21, 2014

Hi all

I'm trying to find an ultra-compact lighting stand for travel that is no more than 42cm in folded length (to fit in a particular backpack, but is 150cm or upwards in maximum height.

I actually intend to use it not for lighting but for a Ricoh Theta spherical camera as it is only 95 gram in weight, and so I don't need a full size / strength / weight camera tripod.

I found one product called the Faith FL-F1 (sometimes listed as FFL-F1) Speedlight Stand which would be perfect for our needs and which has the following spec ..

* Weight 0.54 kg
* Max. Load: 2.5 kg
* Max. Height: 180 cm
* Min. Height: 44.5 cm
* Folded Length: 41.5 cm

... but the UK distributor has said it has now been discontinued and replaced with the FL-F2 which is too long when folded for our needs.

Does anyone have any suggestions of a suitable alternative? Or does anyone have one of these the are looking to sell?

Many thanks for taking the time to read my post, even if you can't help.

All the best
