The Plamp II from Wimberly is a 23" articulating Loc-Line arm designed to help photographers position objects and tools during a shoot. This arm has a load capacity of about 8 ounces, depending on the positioning of the arm, and will easily clamp to tripod legs or similar objects 0.9 to 1.4" in diameter. This holds it securely while the thumbscrew clip holds the object. The nylon clip is extremely versatile with foam jaw inserts for delicate materials, a holding notch that fits the outer rim of diffusers and reflectors, an arched recess that allows for the gripping of round objects. The thumbscrew activated clip is also very strong and precise as well as being able to open up to 1". Additionally, the Plamp II is lightweight at 7.9 ounces.

Wimberley The Plamp II Reviews
A must have in your Photographer toolbox!
When you shoot Macro, Food, Product Photography, etc, the "Wimberley The Plamp II: will be your best assistant in the studio or outdoors. It flexible and strong to position objects and tools like diffusers or reflectors to almost any angle... Originally, I purchased two Plamps - but after using them for some time I added a couple more. It's a must have in your Photographer toolbox!
Item as described and fast shipping
Into close-up/macro photography? Plamp II is for you.
Much sturdier than the original plamp. With a pair of them you can make a free standing frame to hold a diffuser or reflector. Plamp can also hold a small LED light panel for close-up work.
The Plamp II are very well constructed and is a blessing to have in the field that you are attempting to capture your photograph and mother nature is not helping. Very satisfy with the product.
This updated version is much better that the original design. It is the second one I purchased. The arm is strong and maneuverable, and the clamp can handle different thicknesses well. You can easily manipulate whatever it is holding in the exact position you want.
must have tool in your photography kit.
if you like to do close up photography and need to have a small Reflector or hold a plant still this is a great tool to have. get more than one. I got 4 and thinking about getting 2 more.
Great Tool for Macro Photography
Bought this on the recommendation of a Master Macro Photographer and although I've only used it sparingly the recommended setup works well.
Effective tool for holding small things in a fixed spot
I would give this a 5-star review, but the clamp on the end that holds your macro subject is a bit slow to use. You have to turn the screw enough that it loosens up, but the actual clamp doesn't open up until you use your fingers to spread them. It's just a minor annoyance. I currently have it clamped to a tripod leg and use it to grab a flower or other macro subject to hold it in a fixed location that's just as stable as the camera. I do like the little black inserts in the subject clamp as it's gentle enough to not damage the stem of your subject.
