Westcott 750 Photo Basics 7.0-Foot Light Stand User Reviews

Great quality at a good price
“Bought this as an addition to my lighting kit and found it to be sturdy, attractive and well-made. The description doesn’t mention that the extensions are air-cushioned, which I initially didn’t like but really have come to appreciate (you don’t have to worry about jarring your strobe if you accidentally let the extension slip). “ – By Kevin K

Good stand for the price
“It’s my first light stand. Although we use more expensive stands at work, this one meets my budget. Usual use is indoor/studio lighting but sometimes light outside shoot. Sturdy enough to hold my 43″ umbrella and an SB-800. I haven’t tried using bigger strobes though. For it’s price, it is meeting my needs. “ – By Edwin N. Garcia

Good. Cheap. Portable. And cheap
“That’s about it – I wish they were cushioned, but for the price that’s what you get. These are pretty light, which I like from a portability standpoint, but from the durability side we’ll just have to see. Still, they’re very inexpensive. And they’re a little plasticky. But what the heck: I don’t use them to drive nails, do I? And besides, they’re really inexpensive…” – By Schuylercat

Solid stand – not so compact
“This is a solid, medium weight stand. It does what it’s supposed to do and is better for lights/flashes/etc that are on the medium weight side(or if you have softboxes). Frankly, I prefer my Manfrotto 001B, which is a super-light-weight 6 foot stand, and folds down much smaller. So in the end… as a studio stand, great. As a portable stand, not bad, but you can buy lighter. Build quality is fine and none of the hardware seems cheap..” – By G. Opt

cheap and good
“I own several light stands as I use them to hold up my touring puppet stages. This one seems as good as several of the $80-100 stands I’ve purchased. I’m curious to see how it holds up to touring. It has a strange spring mech. that causes the ends to pop out a few inches. I’m not sure what the purpose of this is and it doesn’t realy bother me, I just haven’t seen it before. “ – By Arthur Grueneberger

Sturdy
“I bought this as a second light stand to hoist my second 430ex flash unit. I already own a bogen 3373 retractable 5-piece light stand, which is pretty light, and fits very well into my backpack. Now this Westcott stand iself is pretty light and the construction seems pretty durable. “ – By Girish Venkataraman

Strobist, portable…in a way
“I bought this as a second stand for my reflector. While placing the order i added another one as a spare. In comparison to the bogen 3373 it is lighter but not as sturdy. It also doesn’t collapse smaller then the Bogen. So for really portable work you will need a bigger carry bag. For studio work this is a great stand for low to medium weight equipment. Some reviews indicate that it is air cushioned but it is not. This one has springs at the end to soften the landing a bit but i would not tempt fate with my flash/monolight attached. Other then from a portable standpoint a workable light stand. For portability look at the Bogen.” – By Kasanwidjojo Romeo

Nice stand with good build quality
“The stand has a cushioned internal device that works well. The build quality seems to be pretty good. I am not hard on equipment and expect it to last for a good amount of time. This stand folds up fairly compact and nice and tight. It won’t last forever but will last a long time if you treat your equipment with respect. Its half the price of more expensive stands and just as functional. I use sandbags to weight them when using top heavy objects or reflector holders side mounted to keep them from tipping over. “ – By Daniel B. Glover
