Default QuickStand for Metz

Mark, I had seen in a previous post that you use the QuickStand for your Metz right?? If you do is that the 8 foot stand? Thanks in advance!

You'd want to be able to tilt it as well.

I am using one of the standard alien bee stands (13') light stand. It's very light and with as little weight as the Metz 45, I am not concerned about it falling over and I'm not going to go very high with the flash.

I am about to order this though...

Thanks Julio! I like the idea of that bracket. I could probably make something similar but by the time I have materials and my time into it I would probably have about the same amount of money so I think I will add that to my list also.

As far as the light stand I was going to get an alien bee stand but then I noticed Mark had used the QuickStand so then I wasn't sure which way to go. Is the alien bee hard to maneuver around?? I think the QuickStand folds up when lifted and extends out when set down. This; however, would be nice when working around church pews.....hhmmmm decisions, decisions....

I'm only using the bee one because I don't have to spend any more money.

The quickstand is nice though.

Someone post a photo of a Metz 45 on that Crane MB-3 Bracket.
I'd like to know how to hook things to it.
Please!
Thanks!
