LS-55C Carbon Fiber Light Stand (79in max height)


Light, Compact and Strong

The LS-55C carbon fiber light stand weighs only 19 oz. (545 grams)!  The LS-55C collapses to only 19 inches long (48.5cm), making it short enough to fit in carry-on luggage and most gear bags. Although light and compact when collapsed, the stand reaches a total height of 78.7 inches (200cm) when extended.

The LS-65C extends further than the LS-55C which collapses to a smaller size if collapsed size is more of a priority than maximum height.
