Since the very beginning – in 1946 – Cambo have been building studio stands. And many of those early stands are still being used. Often our stands are passed on from one generation to the next! Like the one shown in the photo below. It’s a Cambo AST from the 1950s. Apart from some signs of wear and tear on the surface it’s still in good shape.
So it’s safe to say, that a Cambo stand will last a lifetime. And nowadays we can offer a wide range of studio stands, to suit every photographer’s needs. Heights range from 2.10m (7ft) to 3.60m (12ft). Our compact Mono and MBX stands speed up the workflow in many retail studios. The heavy duty UST and UBS support two medium or large format cameras with ease. Modern studio stands like UBS and MBX feature cross arms on ball-bearings which rotate independently of vertical adjustments. Amenities photographers in the fifties could only dream of.
