Comments about Manfrotto 5001B Nano Stand:
I cover photo calls in Central London so this is ideal for strapping to my Think Tank trolley case for travelling on the underground. My other light stands, although more heavy duty, were a real pain to carry around. It is fairly compact so indoor use with a couple of flash guns on is the limit. The stand section folds to a nice compact size.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Excellent and lightweight

This is an excellent lightweight stand. Easy to setup and folds down onto itself so will fit in most backpacks / camera bags easily.The one problem with this, with it being so light, if you use it in windy conditions it is prone to being blown over easily, so a sandbag is a must to hold it down. The risk of this obviously increases when you extend the height as well. However; that said I still find these excellent stands and I have 3 of them to accomidate my 3 speedlights and would deffo buy another if one broke.
For the price this is an excellent item. It is very lightweight and folds down to fit into most camera bags as its legs collapse onto itself... However; in windy conditions this isn't very trustworthy so I would recommend the use of a sandbag or something else to better hold it in place.
One of my uses is to light backgrounds.
Sensible price for a versatile stand
A lightweight stand which is very versatile due to it's compact size when collapsed and the thread adaptor that it comes with. A good price too.
Great for travel and location work.

I travel quite a lot and work on location. I use speedlites with battery pack and various light modifiers for portraits. The Manfroto stand is reliable when used with a light weight set up. ( I wouldn't put my Bowens studio light on it!). It is short when folded and I can pack it my trolley together with the rest of my gear.
Manfrotto 5001B Nanon Stand
from Fife, Scotland
After buying a cheaper copy of this and having it fail, I bought the Manfrotto version and the difference in quality is apparent straight away. It was bought for off camera flash because of how compact and portable it is. It ticks all the boxes. Using it with an umbrella or a softbox outdoors obviously comes with it's hazards especially if there's a slight breeze, but this is the same for any lighting stand, but these can always be weighted down or in the case of this stand if you're on grass etc held down with one or two tent/gazebbo pegs as the legs go flat to the ground. Indoors it's great and if you're bouncing off an umbrella you get plenty of height to work with. Well worth the money! Recommended.
Exactly what I needed

Good sold lightweight stand.
I love the fact that this little stand is so compact. I fly a lot so weight and size are very important. This fills the brief perfectly.
