Nasty clamps

Someone tried those ? Are they really worth the price ?? I consider buying some because I always need to fix my flashes in strange places, like a climbing wall or someplace like that ! So those clamps might be helpful but I'd like some real feedback before buying them...


Thanks

They look like me-too Loc-Line and alligator clips like the Wimberley Plamp, et al. Should work fine. All of those components are off the shelf and generally well regarded.

Haven't used those, but you might want to take a look at other types of clamps, such as:

This would make the super clamp flexible:

And what I also like - you can just put them on a floor.

I'm thinking you could make almost any of the clamps above with a trip to home depot and about $8.


If steroids are illegal for athletes, should PS be illegal for models?

Maybe if I get ambitious, I'll make one, and post a DIY of it. Won't be anytime real soon, but if I do, I'll post a link in here.

Manfrotto Super Clamps are a must have for any kit. Too many uses.
