              An excellent mate to the Manfrotto Super Clamp. Allows mounting a tripod head onto the clamp. Perfect of any number of uses including on safari, mounting a camera on a car, post or just about anything that Super Clamp will work on. Much cheaper than other alternatives like the RRS clamp! Manfrotto makes great accessories, built to last.

                      Prefect for mounting a camera in a remote location. I also use magic arms. But thought I would give this a try. I used 4 of this to mount 4 cameras to a fence to shot the [...] fireworks on the 4th of July.I thought the magic arms would accentuate any shaking of the fence. My shots were tack sharp!!I will use these for doing time lapse photography as well.

                      I purchased a super clamp, and needed to mount my tripod head on it. This is what I needed. It's solid (duh, it's all metal with no moving parts), and fits perfectly. The only thing that irritates me about it is that Manfrotto/Bogen know they can charge out the [*] for it, and they do (IMHO).

                        Solid, well built, sturdy. Works well with my Manfrotto 035RL Superclamp and 322RC2 ball head and DSLR or video camera to act as a mini support to clamp to many different surfaces. Typical Manfrotto, very well made.

                        I chose the "hex stud" over the round one, for stability with panning. It interfaces just as it should with my tripod head. This is a MUST have for anyone with a Super Clamp. It allows me to mount my camera at lower positions than my tripod can achieve (such as clamped to a low coffee table, pointed up at the talent seated on the couch). If you can securely clamp to it, than you can use this!

                          This is a must have for anyone with a superclamp. It is an easy way to mount the tripod heads you already own on pretty much anything. Could be used to mount a nice video head without lugging a tripod to a location. Also great for rigging remote video or still cameras. Would not go anywhere with out this in my rig.

                              Allows me to attach my tripod head to a Super Clamp which can then be clamped onto just about anything.
                              Enables me to use a variety of shooting platforms, in situations where I can't use a tripod.

                                This accessory allows you to turn an ordinary ballhead and Superclamp into a go-anywhere camera support. Want to take photos where tripods are prohibited (like most of New York City) or impractical? With the aforesaid combination, you can turn any pipe, railing, light fixture, even mailbox into a photo opportunity. Lastly, it's smaller than a tripod, and more stable than a Magic Arm (especially with heavier cameras).
