      Great little claps

        Comments about Manfrotto 386BC Nano Clamp:

        I use a small arm screwed into the clap to mount my H4 Zoom to my Manfrotto tripod. The whole unit is now right in front of me. I can work the camera, look down on one of the legs and see the sound recording levels, and monitor the quality without having to have a second stand. The claps are solid and I expect to have them for many years.

                  I have been mounting my flash on a monopod to eliminate red eye when shooting night field sports for years ... started with a simple hardware L-bracket and hose clamps ... very annoying and a danger to your physical well being and furniture, car upholstery ... started using a Super Clamp and they are just too large and heavy for the purpose ... the Nano clamp meets the need ... quickly attached and removed, extremely stable, leaves no trace on the monopod ... and has a myriad of other uses for attaching almost anywhere ... and of course, the great craftsmanship we expect from Manfrotto ... very pleased ....

                      Comments about Manfrotto 386BC Nano Clamp:

                      For times when a super clamp is too cumbersome or heavy to carry around, this little clamp usually does the job. I use it when I need to mount a hot shoe flash to something in a quick pinch. The nano clamp is always in my camera bag and it's so small you won't remember it's there. But the nano clamp is definitely no super clamp. It won't hold near as much weight or be as reliable. The biggest issue I have with the nano clamp is that there is no padding or rubber on the inside of the clamp. So two things - 1. this tends to damage things I attach the clamp to and 2. results in a very small surface area with little friction to hold the clamp in place. But overall, it's a good little accessory to always have in your bag.

                            small enough to clamp to handlebar of bike without interfering with cable movement, solid enough to hold small video camera.

                            Comments about Manfrotto 386BC Nano Clamp:

                            I have a number of full-size Manfrotto super clamps which I've been using for years for all sorts of things, like supporting backgrounds, lights and cameras - but the Nano Clamp is a different beast altogether. It is a perfect fit for lightweight kits with speedlights, nano stands etc.
                            Small enough to fit one or a few in your camera bag, and very versatile for attaching stuff in all sorts of places. Thanks to the little 1/4" & 3/8" adapter, you can mount stuff straight onto it, or attach a little ballhead if you need more angle options. Of course it's not as strong as a full-sized super clamp, but it is sturdy enough for its size. I'd have no hesitation hanging a full-size flashgun off it in just about any situation. Have not tested mounting a DLSR off it, yet!
                            The only catch is that you may need a spanner or multi-tool to hand if you're planning on removing and reversing the little thread adapter, as that sucker goes in pretty tight and has no way of removing by hand.
