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 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 spigot / stud is supplied with the stand. Additional heavy-duty Pistol Grips are sold separately for camera + strobe or dual strobe or laptop holder configuration.

Recycled Materials used inside the products: Studio Titan respects the environment. When manufacturing products, Studio Titan prefers using raw materials that are mixed with recycled materials to reduce the environmental impact of the products. For the Aluminum components: Vertical column, Horizontal column, Legs, Die cast carriages, base, cap and head-mount plates. The typical percentage of recycled aluminum metal to raw aluminum metal is 70% recycled to 30% raw. This globally adopted ratio provides good strength and finish. For the Steel components like: circular or square columns, hardware, casters, gears and counterweight. We have confirmed that the steel is made up of recycled materials combined with raw materials. We are not able to provide the actual percentage of recycled to raw on these components. Each product uses a different ratio based on its particular end use.
