An unsung necessity for film making
September 30, 2021
It is often commented in the world of film and perhaps still photography that regular (rectangular) sandbags are not a great fit for folding stands - as opposed to C-stands, which they do fine with. Well, folding stands are a basic item when a C-stand is overkill, and this is the sandbag for those folding stands. I don't think I have seen them discussed on any film making tutorials on YouTube. I can't remember how I found them. They are a great design for this purpose. They are not cheap for indie filmmakers like me but bear in mind that they take the place of a crew member holding down the stand, and that they will last more or less forever.
ProsA necessity for folding stands in the world of film and photography.
Seems like they will last forever.
ConsA bit pricey it might seem, but they are a rugged, long-term investment and save time and labor.
