    Desmond DAC-25 reviews

    DAC-25 25mm Mini Clamp is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant, strong little problem-solver I got this to replace the mini arca clamp that came on my MeFOTO DayTrip tripod, so I could more easily swap equipment, rather than having to change the plate on the bottom of my camera if I wanted to snap it into the small desktop tripod. This clamp was a perfect solution, as it not only accomodates the standard arca plate, but it's even more compact than the clamp that came with the tripod, and it tucks away beautifully between the legs of the tripod when I'm folding it up to put it away. I'm very happy with it.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Clamp Sticks on Release I had to exchange this clamp for a replacement. When the screw tightens the clamp all the way, then is screwed out to open the clamp, the jaw stays in place as opposed to sliding back. This was because the movable jaw nearest the knob was catching on something, probably some screw threads. Had to use my finger to give the jaw a push before it would release. Also, this clamp came with a 1/4-3/8 reducer bushing that was too long! Fortunately, I read reviews at a different site and got some Oben reducer bushings which are the correct length.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow, It's great! Man this thing is great. I had purchased a mefoto Daytrip tripod not noticing that it has some kind of mini arca head on it. it fit none of my camera's plates so it just didn't work, but is a great little travel tripod. this clamp allowed me to remove the factory one (not easy since they used red locktite on the screw). it was a direct and easy fit to change it over.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOOOOVE THIS CLAMP! This clamp is fantastic! It's so light and compact (especially when combined with a Sunwayfoto DP-26 Universal Quick-Release Plate (B&H # SUDP26)), that I can use this same clamp for my 'big' camera, a Panasonic GH4, and my GoPros! I wish I had known about the Arca-Swiss system years ago. So much better than using Manfrotto 501PL plates on a small DSLR (which is also waaay too big for use with a GoPro). The price is also great, at 2.5x less than the Manfrotto 577 Rapid Connect Adapters I'd been using until now. The strap slots turn this clamp into the ultimate quick release strap for your camera, especially useful if you use a DSLR-type camera with a flip out screen, in which case connecting both ends of the strap to the bottom of your camera rather than the top means the strap doesn't get in the way of viewing your LCD! Thank God for companies like Desmond that offer great products at great prices (which certainly can't be said about companies like Really Right Stuff that charge 5-10x as much for the same thing!) I already bought 3 of these and I'm buying 2 more!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Extra turns necessary The Desmond DAC-25 Mini Clamp is strong and light. It works great on a monopod, or mini tripod when backpacking. My only dislike is that the thread on the tightening knob could be coarser. It takes quite a few more turns to tighten/loosen the clamp than some other brands. So it's a little slow to mount the camera, which could potentially cause loss of a shot.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent. Has a contoured underside It seems to be a well-built 1 clamp. My intended use is to replicate what I have on a couple of other camera straps. On a Black Rapid sport (or other strap), attach the clamp to the threaded tripod screw end on the fasten-r connector. Put an arca-plate/L-bracket on your camera, and voila, a quick-change strap to go from strap to mono/tripod quickly and painlessly. In the past, I've used 1 kirk clamps but at more than 2x the cost of this desmond clamp, I thought I would give it a shot. As far as clamping ability goes, it seems stout and I have no concerns. The underside of the clamp has another arca plate built in and has milled out portions of the metal, presumably for the weight advantage. The BR strap's lug attaches securely, but there's not 100% surface area contact to give that extra sense of confidence that it won't work it's way loose. To be clear, this isn't the fault of the clamp. I just had wished I could see a better photo of the underside of the clamp prior to purchasing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from DAC-25 25mm Mini Clamp by Desmond Used it on my Manfroto rail to make it easy to add between my camera and Tripod. It did just what I wanted to do at a reasonable price and I'm real happy with it.
