Upload & Sell: Off
I have recently assembled a portable kit for off camera lighting.
I just took a tripod I already had, added a Falcon Eyes MB-600D extension rod + Manfrotto 066 + umbrella adapter.
Tripod gets to 1.5m, with extension rod and adapter, flash position can be up to 230cm from ground. Legs are spread significantly more than with any portable light stand.
Westcott 43" collapsible umbrellas are as compact as every other part of my kit.
I can either use tripod, or use it with extension rod for flash and umbrella, or I can hold rod with flash and umbrella with left hand and use camera in right hand. So it is pretty versatile.
