A few days ago I ordered this Manfrotto gizmo, its called a super clamp. Aside from the clamp itself, there are several accessory adapters for it. Below is the clamp, a 1/4 or 3/8 thread short fixture, and a 3/8 thread tripod head mount, with the 3 head securing set screws.

Here is the clamp with a Silk light duty ball head, using the 1/4 and 3/8 thread short fixture. This would be for maximum portability, and smaller P&S cameras. Or mounting remote slave, and off camera TTL cord sync flash units.

Here is the clamp setup for more serious buisness, with a Manfrotto 3D head, and the 3/8 thread tripod head mount.

All these fittings snap into a quick release socket on the clamp, so you can change them in a flash. The smaller thumb screw in the rear, locks in the device to secure it, so it does not accidentally get released. The large lever lock secures the clamp, with just a little snug turn. The small silver button on the clamp body, is the device quick release.

The clamp will support 15Kg, and clamp on to a 2-1/2 inch pipe, or 2 inch flat surface like a table or shelf. Hey!, even a tree limb of the proper dimensions would work.

So if you want something super portable, so you can have some camera support when needed. You might think about one of these, I am glad I did. But I never knew they existed until I saw one on the internet, just a few days before I ordered it.

Sold by B&H, the clamp is around $24, the fittings are extra.
