A C-Stand is a type of stand used to support photographic equipment. It is typically used to support a camera, flash unit, or other piece of photographic equipment. The stand consists of a base, a center column, and a grip arm. The base is typically made of metal and has three legs that can be adjusted to level the stand on an uneven surface. The center column is also typically made of metal and is adjustable, allowing the user to raise or lower the height of the stand. The grip arm is used to support the camera or other piece of equipment and is adjustable, allowing the user to position the camera or equipment in a variety of positions.
