Really Right Stuff FAS FORE-AFT SLIDING CLAMP overview

  • 1Description

The FAS-Clamp from Really Right Stuff has Arca-type compatible mounting surfaces on both the top and bottom of the clamp, and it mounts onto camera bars and rails in a parallel orientation. Mounting parallel allows the clamp to slide forward or back on the rail. The top clamp channel runs in a left to right orientation, which allows the camera to face forward for macro photography. It can also be used as a nodal slider for collared telephoto lenses.

There are two separate locking systems built into the FAS-Clamp. The side-locking knob controls the bottom clamp and locks it into position on a camera bar or multi-purpose rail. The locking-release lever opens the top clamp and it allows plates to be top-loaded quickly and easily. Locking down on a plate, the clamp has a holding power of 50 lb.

The CNC machined 6061-T6 aluminum FAS-Clamp has an anodized type II black finish. The locking-release lever is made from stainless steel, and opening and closing the locking-cam is simply done with just finger force. The low-profile lever hugs the side of the clamp in a closed position, and it is less likely to get damaged by catching on clothing or something else in the field. Additionally, there are laser-engraved scales on top and bottom for repeatable alignment.

    Really Right Stuff FAS FORE-AFT SLIDING CLAMP reviews

    FAS-Clamp is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not have any safety level lock Same as any other level clamp from RRS it can open by accident if anything get between lever and clamp body. If you are in rush and do not pay attention anything can open this clamp ( shirt sleeve, camera belt) if it get in between body and lever. For amount of money you pay for it i would expect� clamp to be more consistence in closing force.�� I have few RRS lever clamps� and i found out that RRS clamps on the same RRS rail required force between 0.5 -15 KG to close. They just wear out over time( beveled springs on a lever) or different batches are made little different. With 0.5 kg force you can slide RRS rail out of the clamp and with 15 KG force it is� hard to close. I will get back to knob type - more secure and less expensive plus you can mix and match products from different manufacture when using screw knob clamps

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great accessory for camera bars I use this with the RRS 28” and 18” camera bars. This clamp is great for mounting collared lenses perpendicular to the track of the camera bar. Contrary to what the other reviewer says, my experience with RRS lever releases has been great and I’ve never “accidentally “ unlocked a lever. The way the end of the lever tucks in around the clamp, you’d have to work at it to catch the lever and release it. Anything will wear out over time but don’t let that scare you. RRS gear is built to last and is backed by a solid warranty and great service. I’ve also had no problem using other manufacturers’ plates with my RRS clamps. �That said, better quality plates that are close to the Arca standard are the way to go. �I’ve used Wimberley, Kirk and Giottos plates with no issues. RRS gear isn’t cheap but in my experience you get what you pay for.
