If there is one item in a photo studio that most photographers would agree is simply indispensible, it would most likely be their studio stand. A good studio stand is an absolutely essential ingredient in today’s successful studio. Not only does the studio stand provide the most rigid camera support for large format cameras, but, most importantly, it provides fluid-smooth and time-efficient camera positioning unparalleled by any tripod!

With a studio stand you can take your camera from floor to ceiling in seconds, from one end of the studio to the next in a matter of minutes, or to the exact same perspective you shot from two weeks ago in the blink of an eye. No other camera support is faster, easier or more precise than a good studio stand.

Cambo UBS Studio Stand

Cambo’s top-of-the-line UBS Studio Stand not only takes the effort out of large format studio photography, it makes it a pleasure. This heavyduty stand, with its rigid 4″ square column, is smooth and easy to use, and will save you lots of time. The UBS offers these unique features:

Ball Bearing Movements

Lateral crossarm, rotating collar and height control movements each glide effortlessly on ball bearings at the touch of your fingertip.

Fully Scaled Movements

Precise positioning and realignment is assured to the millimeter on the column, lateral crossarm and rotating collar. Time and time again, the UBS stand delivers reliable and accurate movements that eliminate guesswork from studio setups. The rock-solid stability of the UBS stand makes it perfect for pinpoint-sharp time exposures and multiple flash exposures, and it is ideal for digital photography.

Rotating Collar

This unique panning movement built into the crossarm assembly allows the camera and horizontal arm to be rotated from any height on the column. This makes panning control independent of vertical, or height adjustment control, adding precision to your camerapositioning capabilities.

Choice of Two Caster Bases

Choose from Cambo’s Single Action Base UCB, with its quick-release foot pedal, or the U-0 economical Three-Way Locking Caster Base. Both offer quick, smooth and easy repositioning of the studio stand and positive locking once you’ve found your spot.

Full Accessory System

As when buying any professional photographic tool, it’s important to consider the accessory system that supports it.
