Digital Juice Announces - The Grip Stand SetPopular DJ Gear Line Now Includes The Versatile C-Stand (November 10, 2010)
Digital Juice(r) has announced the release of the Grip Stand Set(r), a lightweight yet rugged C-Stand kit that includes the main Grip or Century (C-) Stand, two 2 1/2" Grip (Gobo) Heads and a 36" long 5/8" Grip Extension Arm. "The C-Stand is a crucial and versatile piece of equipment that no photographer or videographer should be without," says Viv Beason, President of Digital Juice. "It is perfect for supporting equipment like lights, reflectors, flags, soft boxes, color gels and bounce cards. Considering our fan base, the Grip Stand Set is a perfect fit for our rapidly expanding DJ Gear line of products."
The Digital Juice Grip Stand is constructed of chrome steel, with a 33" main section, 2 risers and a detachable "turtle" tripod base that is easily removed for transport and storage. The stand can extend from a minimum of 46" to almost 8 feet in height. The 5/8" standard Baby Pin on top of the stand can be used to mount most standard photo/video light heads to the base directly. However, by attaching the included grip or gobo head, just about any piece of lighting or grip gear can be accommodated.
"The extension arm and second grip head work together to act as a boom or support for a multitude of reflector, gobo or light setups," says Beason. "The grip heads and extension arm can also be detached and used on other light stands. Most busy sets will have at least two or three grip stands in use at any one time." All parts of the stand are adjusted easily via applied torque using ergonomic T-shaped handles.
* A detachable spring-loaded staggered three-legged design allows these stands to be nested and placed extremely close to one another, either on set in multiple lighting setups or when stacked upright for storage.
* Uses industry standard 5/8" "Baby" pin at top of stand and 2 1/2" grip head with female 5/8" mount, making them compatible with other grip and lighting gear.
* Durable chrome steel construction provides weather resistance and solid support for a wide range of lighting and gear weights, without sacrificing portability.
* The grip or gobo head has positive-locking grip teeth and 4 different gripping diameters for mounting just about any piece of gear to the grip head including: extension arms, scrims, flags, cutters, color gels, bounce cards, small lights, cue cards, boom microphones and more.
