09. Lighting stands and supports

There are countless types of studio lighting stands and supports, but which ones are best for the job? In this chapter Karl reviews his favorite supports and shows you some great tips for getting the most out of them.


  1. Hi Karl: Two questions. What is the brand/model of the suction pump stand you showed, and where can I leave a recommendation for this entire course (not just this segment)?


    1. Hi Phil, the suction pump is Manfrotto 241 Pump Cup (thats a newer version, karl’s is old now) I’ve added it into equipment list as well, as for the recommendation for the course I’m afraid there isn’t away, however if you want to leave your thoughts on here we can add it as a testimonial, hope your enjoying everything 👍

  2. Hello!
    I’m absolutely loving all of these tutorials, so informative and straight to the point.

    I was wondering, though, what C-Stand brands would you recommend? Are there any bad quality C-stands we should be avoiding?

    Thank you!

    1. Manfrotto avenger C-stands are the best, from our experience their items like these always seem to be the highest quality, plus you get the 15% off so being a member on here, I don’t think there is any particular brand you should overly avoid though

  3. Hi Ben, the draft boom with the extension tubes looks really interesting, but I can’t find it at Manfrotto. Could you tell me the identification number please? Thanks in advance, Uwe

  4. hello Karl,
    What is the arm you put into the Avenger rotule grip
    D200 over the c-stand ?
    Thank you very much
