Manfrotto 386B Nano Clamp

A clamp is a useful thing to keep in your gadget bag. This one from Manfrotto is strong for its size.

Pros: Small, very strong, lots of uses
Cons: Expensive for what it is

Manfrotto's Super Clamp is an essential accessory in many a pro's gadget bag. Its powerful grip makes it ideal for attaching backgrounds, reflectors, and so forth to stands, tree branches and the like. The problem is, it's quite bulky and heavy.

Step forward its baby brother, the Nano Clamp. This provides the same bone-crushing grip of the Super Clamp, but it's small enough to lose in the folds of your bag. Its sturdy metal jaws will hold cylindrical objects between 13mm and 35mm in diameter, or surfaces from 3mm to 21mm, and can bear a maximum load of 5.5kg (12lbs). There are also two threaded holes (1/4in and 3/8in) to enable you to fix cameras, flashguns and the like with.


A small, very strong and useful gadget though a little expensive.
