I recently bought a FL-36R and a friend of mine lend me an umbrella to practice with. I was thinking to use my tripod for the umbrella but I finish up thinking to buy its dedicated light stand so I can start my own equip. I was looking for a compact light stand (usualy cheap) because I think it will work fine at home and doesnt take that much room when Im not using it. Are guys happy with the compact light stands to start investing on your light gear or do you think they are mostly useless and it is better to go directly for an expensive one? Thank you!
