C-Stand lighting equipment has been the go-to choice for professional photographers, videographers, and filmmakers for decades. The sturdy and dependable Century Stand kit—more commonly known as a C-Stand Kit—is the backbone of any well-equipped studio or on-location shoot. When it comes to supporting expensive and often heavy lighting gear, the C-Stand has become an industry standard due to its strength, stability, and versatility. At PROtog, we’ve long understood just how important C-stands are, which is why we’ve taken the time to source such a wonderful range of Century Stand Kits and C-Stand Camera Mounts.
The Kupo Master C-Stand range offers a wide variety of options to suit every photographer or filmmaker's needs. There are 14 different variations to choose from, including 20", 30" and 40" sizes, two types of bases (Sliding Legs and Quick Fold "Turtle Base"), and two-color finishes (Chrome or Black), these C-Stands are built to last. The Kupo Master C-Stand range even offers kits that include a boom and a grip head, giving you even more versatility and flexibility for your lighting setups.
One of the standout features of the Kupo C-Stands is the cast zinc fittings used to attach the legs to the main body of the base. This gives you up to six times the strength of a conventional aluminum fitting, ensuring that your C-Stand can support even the heaviest lighting gear. The cast alloy locking collars are also a testament to the durability of these C-Stands, with stainless steel Heli-coils protecting the aluminum from being damaged by the knobs, and stainless-steel bolts providing strength and longevity.
In addition to supporting lighting equipment, C-Stands can also be used as a camera mount, making them an even more versatile tool for any photographer or filmmaker. With the ability to support heavy camera rigs, C-Stand Camera Mounts can provide stable and secure camera support, even in challenging shooting conditions.
