    Default Flashguns and Lightstands

    I am considering getting a lightstand to mount my flashlight on it. What is a cheap and easy way to do it other than using some tape and rubber bands?

    I saw this being sold but i want to try a possibly cheaper solution first.

    And do give me some recommendations for lightstands i can use that is very light in weight and can extend to around 2m and places i can get it. Thanks.

    Some flashes come with a 'foot' which you can stand the flash on, then you can screw that onto a tripod
    It is the camera, not the photographer.

    The manfrotto 001 nano is a dedicated portable lightstand, definitely lighter than a tripod and can go to 190cm.
