Re: Light stand adapter

I think you're looking for a TVMP adapter: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ...P_Yoke_to.html

You have a baby pin stand, and you want to attach something with no stand connector at all, right?

There's also a light duty one that has a 1/4-20 stud at the top: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ...n_adapter.html

Re: Light stand adapter

Thanks Peter that's very kind of you, but i may invest in some myself as the venues seem to be getting darker by the weeks, plus the DJs are becoming Dracula's for everything dark?

Cheers nate that might do it , but may be to small, here is the hologan light that's great and a clamp with the male thread on the end that needs to go into female, but the top of lightstand in earlier picture also has a male thread. So I need female one end to go on male on stand then the male from lamp clamp to go into female. Phew might do what Peter has get two red heads! Haha

Re: Light stand adapter

Steve, that spring clamp on the light's foam handle doesn't look sturdy enough to mount to any stand, especially with another adaptor in the chain.
There is not only torque on the spring, but on the ball, adaptor and 1/4 20 thread as well.
I think your idea of getting a couple of used Red heads is a good one. :)

Re: Light stand adapter

Steve, I'll sell you my red heads if you make a reasonable offer. They'll fit your stand.

Re: Light stand adapter

Re: Light stand adapter

That's a good price Steve, I'd be asking 60 for mine. If you decide to go the Ebay route, HWAstudios, which I think you might be looking at, have a look at their dimmable red heads. They're a little more expensive but sometimes 800w can burn your eyes out 😊
