WATSONVILLE, Calif., Nov. 5, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- ExpoImaging, Inc., distributor of photographic accessories in the US and Canada, today announced the availability of Nissin Digital's new ultra lightweight carbon fiber light stands. Available in two sizes, these lightweight and compact stands feature 3 folding carbon fiber legs that connect to a carbon fiber center column.
"Early reviewers are telling us that Nissin's new carbon fiber lights stands are the best on the market," said ExpoImaging CEO Erik Sowder. "They are ideally suited for travel photographers looking to reduce their gear load with smaller and lighter gear," said Sowder.
The LS-55C is adjustable from 19"-79", weighs 22oz, and supports a maximum load of 3.3lbs. When collapsed to its 19" length the LS-55C is short enough to fit in carry-on luggage and most gear bags. For heavier lights and accessories, the larger LS-65C is adjustable from 24"-106", weighs 29oz, and supports a maximum load of 6.6lbs.
Lights, flashes, and other accessories can be quickly attached to the top of both light stands by using the integrated 5/8" stud with a 1/4", or 3/8" screw thread tip. This versatile design makes it easy to quickly and securely attach umbrella brackets, speedlights, soft boxes, LED lighting, and most standard lighting accessories.
"Nissin's commitment to quality and customer support is well known and is supported by industry-leading warranties," said Sowder. "We offer an exclusive 2-Year Warranty on Nissin products in the US and Canada."
