      The clamp pod is great for myself as a soundman adpting a sound db meter on it. It clamps right on to a shelf on the sound cabinet. I can unclamp the pod and the meter at the same time and move around in the building with no problem. I personally find it very useful.

      Great clamp, but...

      By Jim

      from Boise, ID

      Comments about Sunpak Clamp Pod PRO:

      I love this clamp, and it makes it really to place a flash in really odd places, but the ball head broke the first time I used it. Fortunately, I had a small Manfrotto ball head that fit perfectly on it, and it has worked great ever since. Probably will buy another one, but with a better ball head.

        This clamp is invaluable for getting shots from strange angles and locations. I've used it on my Canon digicam, as well as my iPhone, to capture video for 2nd camera cinematography projects. It's inexpensive, easy to bring along, and can add an interesting perspective to your work!

                  I needed a solution for doing dinner theater video in a renovated mill building. Due to large wooden posts and the tables, tripods were not a great option. These clamps, in conjunction with ratchet straps did the trick perfectly. Everything was out of the way and I was able to video at the angles I wanted.

                      This clamp is super sturdy, I used it with a Rosco 3x6 Litepad and this thing was gripping it like it was in a chokehold. Top and bottom bits between the snake neck are unscrewable and you can screw the snake neck to the front of back part of the clamp. While the neck is very stiff, it isn't hard to move and just feels very solid. The clamp itself has rubber on the grips so it won't damage anything it's holding on to.

                      One minor annoyance is trying to rotate the neck often results in either the top or bottom of the neck unscrewing, but getting it rotated and screwed back on isn't an issue. Overall - simple execution and great quality.

                            We used the clamps to attach a go-pro to a toy airplane we rigged with a live dog inside. The dog was flying through the air on a cable system, and the clamp pod pro allowed for us to catch the perspective from the front of the plane.

                            It's great because it can clamp onto anything.

                              My idea was to attach my Canon Vixia to my tripod, as a wide shot backup to my Canon GL-2. I found the clamp to be a little weak for that. It would be perfect for a Flip or Kodak Zi8 camera.

                              If, like me, you like to take things apart and combine them with other gadgets to make your own thing, the goose neck and adjustable mini ball head are pretty handy, and worth the price.

                                  Quality and design are good. This will come in handy. I will be using it with a Kodak Zi8.

                                  This clamp is a very good thing for the price. I do lots of macro photography, and I have a custom made mount which 2 flex arms screw onto a base plate and attach to my camera. Since it is short it is not intricately flexible enough for every single position I've needed while attached to the camera, but for off camera lighting this thing is simply fantastic! I recommend this for small flash units. Heavy ones may not hold well.

                                      I purchased this product in order to use on my kayak. The product description certainly doesn't suggest this as a possible use, so no fault to the product manufacturer or dealer. The clamp is very strong, but it just didn't quite work on my boat - it kept slipping off (again, no fault of the product). The "worst" thing is that after my test trip, the product was completely rusted. I guess it's not made to get wet (or maybe it was the salt water that did it in). Oh, well, on to Plan B...

                                      Just recieved two of these clamps and have found several ways to use them.
                                      First off getting micro flashs in front of the macro lens is ausome.
                                      Vary stiff but flexable. I can hold my Minolta 5600HS no problem.
                                      The head will postion anywere I move it getting the flash
                                      to light up the subject is a breaze.

                                        I puchased this clamp (two clamps to be more accurate) to support speedlights while shooting flowers, insects and other small creatures.
                                        I like it has both removable flexible goose neck and ball head. Two types of removable gripper pads is good idea either.
                                        Clamp itself made by plastic, but it looks rather solid. After all it is not intended to support camera with telephoto lens.
