    I would like to have a set of affordable still quality light stands for wedding photography.
    My rather cheap light stands are continuous source of disappointment...:) I have checked the prices for quality ones (Italian etc.) and they can be extremely pricey.

    Do you know a brand which is reliable and doesn't cost an arm and a leg?
    I would need them for wedding photography.

    Thanks,
    Otto

    It's often a compromise between size, weight, sturdiness & price.

    If you are OK to haul around a heavy light stand that won't collapse to any smaller than 4 feet, then there are plenty of options that are very sturdy. If you want something smaller & lighter, then it won't be as stable etc.

    As with most things, it's hard to recommend by brand, because many companies carry a whole line of products that range from cheap to very expensive.

    This might be the time to pop into your nearest photo store and lay hands on some. ;)
