    DDB-53 Bidirectional Clamp is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Precision I bought this product to build a panoramic nodal slide, in combination with a 12 inch rail, and they serves my need pretty well. Before buying this product I did an extensive research on the nodal slide for panoramic photo. What I have determined is that the nodal slide has some limitations: (1) The clamp is fixed to the slide, so you can't change the direction of the clamp. (2) You can't adjust the distance frome the clamp to the front end of the slide. This was very important to me as I wanted to use one slide with all of my lenses including the WA ones. Besides, this combination (rail + bidirectional clamp) is much cheaper than a nodal slide. I can see that this product is very solid and precise.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK Clamp The machining is fine on this unique clamp. The indexing on all of the clamp jaws is off. It's very difficult to tell which if any of them is correct. I suspect that none of them are right. It probably matters little. But for the price, I expected better precision. The clamp works fine with a multi purpose rail as a nodal rail if the poor indexing is ignored. If Sunwayfoto wants to be serious competition to the US companies, they better pay closer attention to details and precision. I would recommend this clamp only because it is unique and comes in handy for difficult setups and panorama work.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful I am using this bidirectional clamp, in combination with the Sunwayfoto DPG-80D Universal Double Dovetail, to replace the clunky and hard-to-use mounting mechanism, on a Glidecam XR-1000. It radically speeds up the process of balancing a camcorder on the Glidecam, and makes it possible to dismount and remount the camera quickly and avoid having to spend half an hour finessing the balance all over again. It's a huge improvement.
