    Every photographer needs super clamps. Put your camera here, your remote flash up there, hang a backdrop, make a Strobist-style boom with a monopod.... these things are great. And these particular clamps are every bit as good as the more expensive ones, as far as I can tell. Solid construction that looks like they will last for years. They even come with an adapter to make the jaws close flat (for use on a table, etc.). It's a basic tool and every photographer will wish he/she had a couple at some point.

    Like others I went for the cheaper product trying to save a bit of $. Big mistake! The clamp itself seems fine but the weakest point, the standard stud, fails!A soon as I tried to screw something on it the tip broke off! [...] the stud is made from white metal/pot metal NOT BRASS. I'm not a metallurgist but I am a professionally working metalsmith and know my metals. I wouldn't trust this stud for holding anything and have already ordered replacements (Manfrotto) and will only be purchasing Manfrotto from now on.I would give the clamp a 3 or 4 but the stud failure takes it down to a 1. Why they decided to really skimp on materials for this all-important part is beyond reason.Also- Trying to save $ is fine, but when you add up the cost of this product + shipping the difference between this and the Manfrotto is negligible, especially considering the unreliability of the stud.

        This clamp will hold your stuff tight! Smooth machining and easy to use. I mostly use it to hold an overhead flash but you could use it for anything.

        I use this to attach to a Magic arm to hold my D-600 behind the glass of a basketball backboard. It holds the set-up quite firmly, even during warm-ups when hundreds of basketballs are hitting the glass. I would like to see a larger tightening knob for better purchase.

          This is the second Impact Super Clamp I've bought and They work great. I also use Manfotto Super clamps and the products are interchangeable with a slight advantage that goes to Manfrotto only because the wedge fits better and the ability to close quicker.

            Comments about Impact Super Clamp with Standard (1/4"-20) Stud:

            When I received this clamp I couldn't help but notice it felt heavier than my Manfrotto 035RL super clamp. It also has a higher weight rating. Well I thought that was nice (I really didn't need the higher rating) and less expensive, always nice. The quality, in my opinion, is just as good. One earlier reviewer mentioned it took longer to close because it uses a wing nut, since I position the clamp and use one hand to squeeze the jaws together and spin the wing nut with a finger it's just as speedy, I also do this with the Manfrotto, so this is not an issue. Quality is excellent and so is the price.

                  I ve been looking for a set of gaffer equipment knowing that I will not have to secure heavy or expensive equipment. It s for small shooting when I need to clamp a small light on a table or any other useful thing a gaffer can do with it.
                  It s a great product for the price and for occasional shooting.

                    I was pleasantly surprised by the build quality on this clamp. Much more rugged than I expected given the price. Just use some common sense and tighten it down no more than necessary for the job and it should last for many years. Functionally, its perfect. Clamps solidly to virtually any pole or slab. I often use mine with a set of PA speaker stands to create ultra heavy duty lighting stands. Works wonderfully for that purpose. I guess my only compliance, and it's minor, is that I can't figure out what the little attachment is for that flops around under the knob that tightens down on the brass stud.

                        I had exactly the same problem that was described by the metalsmith. The stud fails (snaps off inside the mounted arm). On examination under a 10x lens, the stud is clearly not solid brass. There is only a thin coating of brass, with some pot metal inside.

                          It was tough finding a robust, reliable, clamp, that can clamp to larger tripod legs, securely, while providing 90 degree to leg attachment. Most don't have that feature and the stud rises parallel to the leg, threatening interference for nearly every kind of device. This one does it for Hyperdeck, DSLR monitors, lights, anything you might need to fasten to a tripod leg.

                                    As a photo enthusiast I can't afford expensive light arrnagemnts. The super clamp has allowed me to place a light or my flash in areas I could not otherwise access thus giving me a more pleasing photo. I also use it with the umbrella clamp to combine light or flash with an umbrella.

                                        Ever Wonder how you can strengthen your weak tripod from collapsing. Mount and tighten a super clamp just under the retracting telescopic sliding joints on each leg for a tripod with the stongest legs on planet earth.

                                        Use it to mount Flash Triggers to a tripod so they are not dangling in the wind. Didn't want to use velcro so I got a set of these.

                                            I wasn't quite sure what to expect out of this little guy but it's proven very useful for location shooting where there might not be room or time for setting up stands and you just need to throw a light on a counter or something. Definitly will add more to my lighting kit.
