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.
