I just returned from a great meeting at Matthews Studio Equipment in Burbank. Not only are they going to let me use their images in my book, but Bob Kulesh cleared up something that's been driving me crazy lately. In my last post, I stated that in the world of stands, the term "baby" refers not to the size of the stand itself, but to the 5/8 inch pin these stands posess. Then I ran across the "baby junior stand", which confused me, since there didn't seem to be a 5/8 pin anywhere on the thing. This, Bob tells me, is because there isn't one. A "baby junior" is just a small junior stand with the larger 1- 1/8 inch receiver. I shake my fist at the sky and yell aaaaarrrrrrgh!
