What is it?
In photography, motion picture and television production, the primary function of a C-stand (or Century stand) is to position light modifiers, such as gobos, flags, silks, and scrims in front of light sources. They can also be used as light stands, hanging backdrops, and almost limitless other grip applications. The stand consists of a collapsible leg base, two riser columns with a baby pin, and a grip head and grip arm, for the positing and adjusting of the light modifier. C-stand legs are designed to be nested for easy on set storage and for getting into tight locations. Their strong and stable design also makes them perfect for mounting docking brackets that are used for balancing Steadicam camera sleds.
 
The Lowel 40-inch C-Stands are a motion picture and photography industry standard for go-to accessories in the studio or on location. The 40-inch double-riser shaft is outfitted with unique ergonomic locking tri-knobs that offer a firm grip and secure hold. The familiar staggered leg height design allows nesting several stands close together, and fast deployment. Lowel C-stands follow industry standard sizes to perfectly fit on grip trucks or C-stand hangers. When combined with the Lowel grip head and arm, there’s no better tool for supporting light fixtures and light-modifiers like gobos, flags, silks, and scrims.
The turtle-base model C-stand (CTB-40) features spring-loaded legs for fast setup and breakdown and for easy travel and storage. The removable base with a 1⅛-inch junior receiver facilitates exchanging riser sections with accessories like a stand adapter for low-angle lighting, or replacing the legs with a runway base for greater mobility.
 
The sliding-leg model C-stand (CSL-40) features a movable top leg that’s secured by a tri-knob. It’s designed for leveling the stand on uneven surfaces like stairs, hills, and curbs.
 
Lowel’s Grip Head (CGH-25) provides 5/8 and 3/8-inch holes for mounting grip arms and other lighting fixtures or grip equipment. The 40-inch Grip Arm (CGA-40) features a fixed 2.5-inch grip head and a pin with a flat recess that prevents slipping or rotating when mounting small light fixtures.
