Century Stands, often referred to as "C" Stands, are a cornerstone of grip equipment in the filmmaking realm due to their remarkable strength and adaptability. Whether used singularly or in conjunction with grip heads and arms, these C-stands are indispensable for securely mounting lighting gear and a diverse range of tools for shaping and directing light. Each Century Stand showcases a distinct base thoughtfully crafted with three varying leg heights. This clever feature empowers users to deftly position or "nest" the stand bases, allowing the risers to align mere inches apart. This proves especially valuable for mounting lights and grip equipment in tight quarters, or for streamlined storage.
The Kupo Master C-Stand with Turtle Base introduces a remarkable breakthrough to the world of C-Stands, enabling photographers and filmmakers, whether capturing stills or dynamic footage, to effortlessly deploy and retract the base legs in a mere two seconds! The Master C-Stand boasts an inventive patented spring ring locking mechanism that eliminates all leg tension, entrusting gravity to perform the task. Furthermore, the detachable base readily separates from the primary riser segment, making transportation a breeze. An added perk of the turtle base design emerges when the main riser section is removed, revealing a junior 1-1/8’’ (28mm) receiver ready to accommodate any junior stud or accessory.
