  • Rental lighting tripods, also called light stands or stands, are essential in any photography, video, film or television production for mounting and positioning spotlights, umbrellas, softboxes and other lighting equipment. There are various types and sizes, designed for different workloads and usage needs. Listed below are the most common types of lighting tripods:
  • Lightweight tripods: Tripods suitable for small LED lights, speed flashes or small softboxes. Tripods are portable, easy to transport and quick to set up, ideal for use in small studio rentals.
  • Medium Duty Tripods: These are more robust and can support more weight, making them suitable for supporting medium sized light sources such as fluorescent lights, led panels and medium sized HMI spotlights. They offer greater stability and a menu with additional features such as shock absorbing springs.
  • Tripods and C-Stands: Designed for professional use. They have a solid metal construction and can include a wheeled base for controlled movement. C-Stands (or Century Stands) are a particular type of sturdy tripod with a steel construction and a sturdy arm that allows you to mount lights and modify the light in a more versatile way by means of its two different sized swivels and swords that allow you to place any Cinema and TV Lighting fixtures in the exact desired position.
  • Boom Tripods: There is a horizontal arm that allows a light to be attached on top of the subject or at awkward angles where tripods cannot hold. It is ideal for situations where lighting is required from behind without the direct intervention of brackets in the frame.
  • Air-cushioned stands: These tripods feature a mechanism that prevents the stand from collapsing suddenly when flattened, protecting the lighting equipment from damage and making height adjustment smoother.
  • In addition, most lighting tripods have adjustable heights and extend into the middle of sections that lock into place with clips. They offer a variety of mounting options, such as different sized spigot and brackets to suit various types of lights and lighting fixtures. When selecting lighting tripods, it is important to consider the weight of the equipment it supports, as well as the height and stability required for the intended use.
