FM Photography McClamp Standard Micro Clamp and 1" Mount Clamp

You Pay: $44.95

The McClamp Standard Micro Clamp and 1" Mount Clamp eliminates wind effect for improved sharpness of photographs. It clamps to a tripod leg and can hold such items as gray cards and 12" reflectors. It improves compositions by providing more control of your subject and background. Explore new creative angles by adjusting the 26" flexible arm while the clamp holds your small subject in place.

The holding clamp has two surfaces - firm plastic outside jaws for a firm grip, and soft inner neoprene jaws to hold delicate subjects.

Features a variable tension screw to adjust the gripping strength.
Stores flat in camera bag and includes a nylon carrying bag.

      The 1in clamp actually opens at 1 1/4in which fits most tripods legs. The macro clamp also opens at 1 1/4in to grab hold to thick objects. The macro clamp also has black foam filling the entire center area of the jaws so no damage will be done to delicate objects. With the large clamp attached to the tripod leg and the macro clamp onto a flower stem and using a 100mm macro lens, the farthest distance for your subject to be in focus is about .5m (or a 1:4 subject scale). I mostly use a monopod for my macro shots and keep the McClamp attached to it all the time. The macro clamp is great for holding a 12in reflector for that extra light. Due to its 26in long arm, larger reflector wouldn't work when the clamp is attached to a tripod. But attached to a post, at the right height, larger reflector or diffuser can be used.When I don't use the McClamp between two shots, I simply fold it in half against the monopod. It's light weight with good construction and the large clamp tension spring is adjustable. It's all plastic with metal bolts and nuts and tension springs. The size of the large clamp is 4 1/2in x 3 1/4in and the small one is 3 1/2in x 2 3/8in. Unfolded, it fits great in a tripod bag. I don't have numbers on how much weight the arm can hold but it does the job well.

      I bought this so I could attach it to my tripod to extend objects to photograph close-up. It works okay. Unfortunately, even the larger clamp does not fit around the leg of my tripod. Also, if you bend The Clamp a way it doesn't want to go, it will snap off and you have to reattach it.

            I had several things I wanted to try this with. Partly to hold plants for macro (good), partly for holding reflectors (only if you hold them from above), and square lens filters (didn't work out as well as I hoped.)

            But it is a handy tool to have around...

                I love this product. If I want to shoot from further away than the 26" I simply clamp it to a little 12" tripod that I have and move the camera tripod where I want it. I can also mount a wireless flash (or cabled even) to the little tripod and get exactly the shot I want.

                    Have carried this on hikes. Clamped to tripod it provides stable support for 22 in. reflector. Have used a pair of them to aid in positioning a small diffusion tent when shooting forest ground flowers if the tent has to be elevated off the ground. Adjusting postion of the clamped item is not difficult in my experience. Chose McClamp because it's slightly longer and has a larger micro clamp than the otherwise similar Plamp.

                      I bought this product mainly for macro photography. It solves many problems for this style of photography, either indoors or outdoors. The padded mini clamp holds delicate objects with minimal damage. The arm is really flexible and makes it easy to position clamped objects. Good for small plants, stems, leaves and the like. Not for heavy objects.

                        I use the clamp to position flowers for photographs. It works great and is much faster than the homemade wiring I used before. The only negative is that the clamps require a bit of power to open, though it looks like I can adjust that. Also the positioning is jerky, making it harder to make very small changes for macro.

                                I was relieved that the standard 1" clamp fits onto my 3000 series Gitzo tripod. I nearly ordered the 2" clamp to be sure of a fit, but the 1" is sufficient. I also ordered a Plamp. So far, I prefer the McClamp to the Plamp. I find the McClamp to be sturdier and it is capable of holding a little more weight for things such as reflectors. I think this will be a useful accessory while shooting macro subjects.

                                  A fine 3rd hand; got it mainly for flowers, and not many of them to shoot right now it being winter here. So I've been amusing myself with pics of coins and experiments with a small reflector. The clamp is fine for a 12" reflector, and would probably be fine for a larger one (which I don't have) unless there's wind. One thing to be aware of - it is very springy. If you're trying to shoot something that is being supported entirely by it, like a coin, it takes 5 or 6 seconds after pressing the shutter button for the motion of the coin to damp out. 10 second timer or a remote release will be needed.It's stable - once the coin is where you want it, the clamp does not sag or drift away.Never used another clamp, so can't compare it to anything else.

                                    The larger clamp on table edge, the smaller clamp securing a small diameter cylinder - perfect! This device would work for any need to keep something that wants to move, STILL.
                                    Well described on web, very prompt shipment. Many thanks

                                      It is good for macro photography, I could position flags and reflectors at any position, but I thought it is a little bit stronger. I don't know would it resist the wind during flowers macro shot............, but for indoors it is perfect, definetely.

                                            These are great items to have around the studio. Handy for product photography to hold items, reflectors, and any other item that needs to be clamped in place. Great non-scratching clips.

                                              I used the clamp to hold some last-of-the-season flowers and a reflector for some portraits! Great addition to my bag!

                                              It does exactly what it claims to do. One clamp goes on the tripod leg. The other can handle delicate things, like flower stems. For what it can do, it's reasonably priced and well made.

                                                      The McClamp is a very helpful third hand for holding reflectors or other small objects. The padded micro clamp can be used to hold delicate objects like plant stems with minimal damage. It is easy to position clamped objects.

                                                      The McClamp is not sufficiently rigid to hold something as heavy as a small flash, or to completely eliminate wind motion when holding plant stems.
