Commercial Studio Camera Stand STA-01-350
The STA 01-350 [updated MK2 version] is designed for Commercial Photography. It features an extended center column height reaching 240cm/94.4 inches and longer horizontal arm width of 100cm/39.3 inches. The base is heavily weighted for added stability. The STA 01-350 provides additional reinforcement of the Horizontal Arm/Bar by a newly designed heavy-duty interface plate. The plate provides two additional bolts strategically located, one on each side of the vertical carriage, for a total of 4 bolts. This new design provides additional load support and spreads the load forces from the horizontal arm into both the front and the sides of the vertical carriage casting. This stand is categorized as 2-axis, it provides both vertical and horizontal movement of the camera. Vertical [up/down] travel is provided by the vertical carriage. Horizontal arm / bar [left/right] extension is provided by the horizontal carriage. Optional Horizontal Arms are available for extending the working width of the STA 01-350 even wider, out to an approximate maximum of 1350mm / 54 inches (measured center of Vertical Column to the center of Camera plate). With an optional extended horizontal arm*. The STA 01-350 is ideal for over table product imaging. The Camera Head Mount Plate is user adjustable and provides the shooting positions: 0 degrees, pointing up as supplied, 90 degrees, 180 pointing down for tabletop photography, and 270 degrees.
-User positioned vertical carriage with precision smooth motion ball bearings and secure axis lock with one user brake knob
-User positioned Horizontal arm / bar carriage with precision smooth motion ball bearings and secure axis lock with two user brake knobs
-Precision-manufactured with attention to detail using CNC machinery.
-Counterweight located inside vertical column balances the load and allows single-handed operation.
-Low center of gravity base with foot-operated brake plungers, quickly secures base and dampens vibrations.
-Premium Dual Stage bearing casters provide easy movement around the studio. The dual-stage foot brake stops both the wheel from rotating and the caster housing from swiveling, preventing unwanted movement.
Essential tools are included to complete assembly.
A unique STUDIO TITAN feature not found on other Studio Stands is the vertical and horizontal column graduated tape scales. The measuring scales provide a point of reference which allows the photographer to log and then quickly re-create a previous set-up.

*Before installation and use of an optional horizontal arm please read the STA_01-350HB_Horizontal_Arm_Bar_ manual. When using an optional horizontal arm, consideration for load reduction and using additional weights / sand bags on the legs of the base are required to prevent instability or a tip over.

-Added heavy-duty interface plate on the horizontal bar/arm carriage plate for increased strength.
-Stop pin added to the top of the vertical column preventing the counterweight from over-traveling upwards.
-Added brake plungers on left and right legs, provides quick set and release brake system.
- Added user adjustable camera head mount plates on the horizontal bar, provides 360-degree range of motion allowing the camera to point towards the ground or positioned under the horizontal bar.

This product is intended for use by professional and commercial photographers in a studio environment with a high ceiling. The wheels are designed to be used indoors on a floor that is smooth, hard, flat and unobstructed. It is designed to be used at all times with a load (Camera or laptop shelf or both). This product is not recommended for use by hobbyists or in a household environment with a low ceiling or carpeted floors. Carpeting or pitted surfaces are not recommended because of the increased rolling resistance which can cause the stand to tip over. If the surface is not ideal, the stand must be moved with caution, very slowly, using both hands one at the top and the other at the bottom to steady the stand in order to prevent the stand from tipping over. If the surface is not ideal, lower the load to the waist level before moving the stand. We also recommend the use of a sandbag or weight attached at the base when conditions are not ideal to prevent tipping over. Ultimately it’s the users' responsibility to understand how the stand operates and to use the stand within its specification limits, as intended, to ensure their own safety and the safety of their equipment. It is also recommended to use a short tether cable to secure the camera to the stand in the event that the head, head plate, or camera adapter plate comes loose or fails. Some assembly is required, we recommend using an assistant during the initial product assembly.
