When I used to shoot news I was lucky enough for a Journalist to catch my C Stand and 1×1 LED light as it toppled over. So I haven’t yet lost a light to a drop. Touch wood.
If I was unlucky to have a light topple again I might just have to make sure it’s a bullet proof Litepanels Astra.
Litepanels takes the popular Astra through a couple of drop tests showing that they can take a beating and continue to perform without having to halt production. Tests include falls from a ladder and on a light stand even a Frisbee toss all landing on asphalt.
See Litepanels for more information.
