Manfrotto Nano Clamp

Small and light enough to carry in a jacket pocket, the Manfrotto Nano Clamp is like a mini version of the popular Super Clamp. Weighing in at just 4.4 oz and featuring a ratcheting aluminum handle, the Nano Clamp can support a load up to 8.8 lb. The clamp features a redesigned gripping surface, patented unexposed thread system, and high friction tape which improves the grip on pipes, poles, and tubes. This, and the fact that it incorporates 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 female taps, makes it well suited for use with a wide variety of lighting gear.

Manfrotto Anti-Rotation Adapter

This 3/8" Manfrotto Anti-Rotation Adapter for Friction Arms, with its unique shape, allows the equipment to be securely interlocked so the arm, clamp, or tripod tap in use does not permit rotation. The adapter can easily be mounted or removed using the included hex key. It is compatible with the 244Mini Friction Arm, 244 Micro Friction Arm, 244 Micro Friction Arm with Anti-rotation, the 386B-1 Nano Clamp, and 055 and 190 Series tripods.

A great solution for mounting your phone on your desk.

Great buy, but very expensive!

Great buy! I was very surprised when I saw the size of this arm. I was expecting little, but never like that. Anyway, I am gladly satisfied with this article because the quality is 100% and it is very convenient for the Manfrotto Digital Director! It would have pleased me to give 5 stars, but whatever the quality, like all Manfrotto products, the fact remains that the price is largely exaggerated.

Great Friction Arm!

The Manfrotto 244 Micro Friction Arm Kit includes the 244 Micro Arm and the Nano Clamp. The �anti-rotation adapters built into both the clamp and the arm keep the arm from twisting loose with heavy loads. I use it with my Manfrotto 190 tripod with its Easy Link connector to attach a Manfrotto Lumimuse 8 LED, reflector, etc. I use the Nano Clamp when I want to use the arm to hold things further from my camera or on a tripod without the Easy Link connector. The arm is very easy to position and tighten with the single knob. I wondered if the arm would be too short prior to purchasing, but it is light and portable and I’m actually glad it is the size it is. It is built like a tank (good weight for its size) and holds more than I imagined. Overall, it has been a great addition to my kit.

Fantastic...

Earlier I bought a cheaper arm that had trouble holding my Ikan 7" monitor with a Sony battery. � This arm does the trick. �Very easy set-up.

I love the versatility, quality, and ease of use this arm provides. If you are thinking about buying that $30 one DON’T.

Anti rotation adapter has wigg

By Bjorn
Rated 3 out of 5

Yes it stops the arm from rotating well enough but there is some wiggle. When there are two metallic sur fx ace wiggling, you have noise. When you have noise you can ruin your audio capture especially if it's on camera audio. If I was sent a dud, I'd hope manfrotto could send me a new unit. Strength of arm = A

Expensive but worth it.

Nice and compact, perfect for holding an external camera monitor. Very well made. The anti-slip attachment can be swapped to the other end if you are not attaching to a Manfrotto tripod.

Great small friction arm

question

Is the clamp big enough to attach to the legs of a RRS tripod? Legs have a 5 circumference.
Asked by: Niels
This spec is listed when you look up the Nano Clamp by itself:Clamping Range 0.5-1.37 (13-35mm)So with a 5 circumference being a 1.59 diameter, the clamp will be too small.

question

Does this work with a Sony @6000?
Asked by: Anonymous
This item is generally meant to attach (screw or clamp)to a tripod or object in order to hold lighting, flashes and accessories. You can purchase a number of accessories for this item that will allow you to hold a multitude of additional objects. One such item is a 3/8 to 1/4 adapter that which should fit the standard 1/4 mount thread found on most cameras. In any case I found this item to be great buy and a fine addition to any camera bag!
