Re: Shooting tables R Us...

I have had the Manfrotto shooting table for over 22 years, bought it without the plexi. I use it all the time for product work and the advantages are it can be broken down easily as it has the speed handles at every tube junction. So it can be taken on location.

Mine came with a leg extension for added height and I made an additional extension to get it higher. I also made a wooden platform that sits on the top so I can use it with paper or heavy objects. The nice thing is the size of sheet it uses so a standard 48" x 96" Formica fits perfectly so for wet objects it is easy to clean.

The tube construction is ideal for clamping reflectors, scrim or gobo arms to it, keeps the stand clutter to a minimum.

It really depends if you shoot for a living and want and excellent platform that travels easily. It should last your career.
