Studio Camera Stand Portable 3-section Side Kick STA-06-093
The STA 06-093 3-section portable side-kick is a Premium Stand designed for the Professional Photographer and engineered for daily use. The portable side-kick is designed for portability. It is supplied with a sturdy nylon carry bag and features separate zippered storage compartments for each component. The portable side-kick column was designed for quick and easy tool-less set-up. The self aligning column fastening system is simple and only requires a few turns to assemble. No special set-up tools are required, which makes it very easy to set-up in dimly lit locations! It rolls through a doorway and weighs only 7Kg/15.5 lbs, the pistol grip weighs an additional 1.5lbs. The column material is made of STEEL not Aluminum. The side-kick provides a payload capacity of 20kgs/44lbs, which is more than double when compared to other portable stands on the market. Stands with Aluminum columns dent, ding and scratch more easily when compared to STEEL. STEEL is stronger, 2.5 times more dense than Aluminum, less likely to warp, deform or bend under weight and force. The heavy-duty Pistol Grip Platform with attachment stud, easily guides a Camera or Strobe up or down the column. The heavy-duty Pistol Grip includes two locking knobs. The first locking knob prevents unwanted vertical movement when set. The second locking knob secures the attachment stud. When the center column is set to the lowest position or in "Parking Mode" the side-kick remains stationary on a flat surface without locking the casters. Use "Parking Mode" when small movements are needed to find the best shooting position. The perfect portable stand for fashion, portrait and event photography. One heavy-duty Pistol Grip platform with attachment stud is supplied with the stand. Additional heavy-duty Pistol Grips are sold separately for camera + strobe or dual strobe or laptop holder configuration.

Studio Titan reserves the right to make product changes and improvements as required. As a result, the product supplied may not be exactly as pictured or specified.
This product is intended for use by professional and commercial photographers in a studio environment or location with a high ceiling. The wheels are designed to be used indoors on a floor that is smooth, hard, flat, and unobstructed. 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. We also recommend using a sandbag or weight attached to the base when conditions are not ideal to prevent 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, attachment stud or camera adapter plate comes loose or fails. Some assembly is required, we recommend using an assistant during the initial product assembly. Please read all documentation prior to assembly.
