Manfrotto 175F-1 reviews

175F Justin Spring Clamp with Flash Shoe is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 260.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect speedlite clamp By far the best and most versatile clamp I have used for mounting speedlites on location and it works just about anywhere!! After borrowing one from a friend for a shoot I bought two that will stay in my bag at all times and plan on picking up two more in the near future. This clamp won't replace the need for light stands but will allow you to place multiple speedlites at various heights and angles on the same stand. Additionally, you can attach a speedlite to any object strong enough to hold it. For example a door, chair, table edge or even a tree branch becomes a light stand with this clamp. The cold shoe is fully adjustable so you don't have to fight with tweaking the clamp once you attach it trying to change the angle of the light. I wish I had some of these sooner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works with SB-900 Based on earlier reviews I was a little hesitant about purchasing this item but I'm glad I did. I read that it required quite a bit of force to get Nikon's SB-900 to slide into the cold shoe. Manfrotto apparently changed the design of the cold shoe. My SB-900 slid into place with about the same amount of light pressure as required for mounting a SB-800.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well built, versatile, wonky cold shoe All current Nikon flashes fit on the cold shoe without excessive force. The clamp provides industrial strength grip and the ball head supports the weight of the flash no problem. I deducted a star because the Achille's heel of this product is the plastic cold shoe that depends on friction for retention. Eventually, the plastic friction retention tab will wear out. I swapped mine out with Stroboframe flash bracket and feel much better not worrying about expensive OEM flash slipping out and hittng the floor. Although these are great, they are also pricey. I made a few of my own using Manfrotto 175 clamp, Oben mini ball head, Manfrotto 118 spigot, and Stroboframe shoe and saved few dollars.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Build Quality is Disappointing I have two of these clamps. Both have the same problems: the cold shoe is NOT secured to the burled metal adjustment rod, and will not stay on the clamp. The cold shoe has separated and dropped my flashes too many times to continue using them. The other issue is the spring/knob assembly that secures the clamp to a light stand. It also constantly works itself loose, letting the spring get away and the pin is on the ground. The idea of these clamps is great and useful. The execution and assembly of the clamps is very unsatisfactory and I would not recommend these to anyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great - But Junk Due to a Single Flaw The 175F Manfrotto Justin Spring Clamp is a wonderful thing, except for one fatal flaw: it exists to provide a cold shoe mounting point, but the cold shoe provided is made of cheap plastic that breaks easily. Which means whatever expensive photo accessory you mount on this thing is near certain to fall off and hit the ground. The part cannot be repaired, but it can be replaced. My recommendation is the ProMediaGear Cold Shoe Adapter with 1/4 Thread B&H # PRCS1. This adds considerable cost to this Manfrotto Justin Clamp, but without it the Justin Clamp is worse than worthless -- it drops the gear it is supposed to support, almost certain to cause damage, and potentially interrupt photo shoots. I own multiple clamps, and have replaced the official Manfrotto part numerous times. This is a definite design and materials flaw present on every 175F clamp, not an individual isolated failure. And I do not abuse equipment, either. Any close inspection of this device new out of the box (the thin plastic cold shoe rails specifically) will reveal it to be woefully inadequate for the intended purpose. I've attached cell phone pics showing the problem. A piece of white index card was placed in the cold shoe for contrast.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Flash shoe not securely attached Flash shoe came off when tightening. Seems like there are too many things to tighten on mount shaft. Gorilla glued so should be ok but be aware if you hang upside down. Tried to remove shoe mount from clamp and was stripped from factory. Why you ask? Wanted to add another swivel mount other than what was on there. Still giving it 4 stars though. Use this for POV cameras at weddings and events. These attach securely to poles, tree limbs, track lighting, etc., etc.. Just be aware the shoe is not attached that securely. Glue on if you like what's attached to it. Or am I being obtuse?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replace plastic! Trust me plastic shoe mount will break sooner or later, don't endanger your flash unit - replace plastic shoe mount with metallic shoe mount (Vello just 8$), get 3/4 long (1 is too long) 1/4 diameter 20 thread socket set screw (you can get it at @for just 2$) and attach metallic shoe mount to with screw to the clip. Then its rock solid, I'll get another one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice addition for flash photography I got this Justin Clamp a couple of weeks ago. It is well built and provides lots of secure mounting options including free-standing. Just got done clamping my Nikon SB900 speedlight upside down, 7 feet above concrete for halloween shots - no worries. The clamp cold shoe provides a smooth equally snug fit for both my SB600 and SB900 - looks like the excessive tightness with SB900's has been fixed. Enjoy.
