Please ensure you are familiar with the proper use of a C-Stand as Studio 3E has two to choose from aside from various other stands. On a C-Stand, the high leg/longest leg should ALWAYS follow the boom arm/load. This provides for the most stable setup in conjunction with the proper use of sand bags. Do not swing the boom arm without re-aligning the longest floor leg to match with the boom arm/load. A strobe falling to the ground because of misuse is not only ugly – it is expensive.
