I bought this clamp to use with the Manfrotto Magic Arm, 244RC. It works very well with the arm. I am sure that Manfrotto used to make these with metal handles that ratcheted. I have found several times that I wish that I had the ratcheting feature, even only owning the Magic arm and this clamp for only a week. I typically am trying to clamp it down to something that is in a tight space and not being able to ratchet limits where I can clamp it.

The stud is useful if you have a studio with lights because you can put them right on the clamp.

I have also found that it really can't clamp to ANYthing. Some tables are too thick as well as other surfaces. Always use the included flat thingy when clamping to flat surfaces because although you can use the clamp on a flat surface without it, you also leave a line in the paint or wood where you clamp it.

Even with the few things I have found wrong with it the Manfrotto Superclamp with stud securely clamps to bicycles (even the main frame) tables, i-beams of buildings and small tree branches.

It seems to be very sturdy and well-built. I wanted to attach a camera directly to this clamp but it doesn't have either a 1/4" or a 3/8" threaded stud. The brass fixture that comes with it is great for rigging a light tho. I bought a couple of them and I'm sure that at some point I'll find a use for them.

              Great clamp. Very sturdy. Parts seem to be high quality. Tightened very well onto 1.5" square bar that I had to mount a camera on (wide angle balcony shot). It was larger than I expected it to be, which also makes it heavy, but if you're looking for reliable and sturdy, this is the clamp for you.

                  This thing can grip booth angular and tubular surfaces with ease. Be careful when tightening down on the grip as it's powerful and can crush metal tubes like those on light stands. You know your gear is secure with this clamp.

                      I have a few 'super clamps' from other brands, but they do not compare to the Manfrotto Super Clamp. Fantastic product, holds the car rig on firmly, can hold up to 15KG each. Superior product to others offered.

                        With a pair of these a crossbar and a doorway you can use these for chin-ups. They're big and tough. If you don't need the larger capacity Mafrotto's MicroClamp is also usefull and fits better in my camera bag.

                                  Super easy to use and once it is set in place you can walk away and know it won't fall. I have used this with the standard stud and with the friction arm to hold my Einstein e640 strobes with ease. Would be nice if the handle was metal instead of plastic, but would not keep me from buying it.

                                    Jaws open wide enough to go around standard door trim. Use it to mount a Justin clamp with speedlight for the extra oomph when you need it. I also use them with a battery frame mount for studio lights on site.
