Nikon SB 900 is a tight fit

The Nikon SB 900 does not fit comfortably on the cold shoe of the 175f. I think it's going to break the housing when I try to "jam" the flash on to it.

You Need One

By

from Manitou Springs, Colorado  -  Semi-Professional

Thanks to Joe McNally and Justin Staley for coming up with this ridiculous invention, which, if you're doing flash photography in a space where you can't use a lightstand you just gotta have. It'll go on a lightstand, it'll go on a tripod, and if it can't go on one of those it can go just about anywhere. Don't leave your studio without at least one.

The Perfect Gaget

By

from Kaysville, UT  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

This cold shoe flash clamp is a quality product. I am always concerned about my expensive flash units on other flash mount devices. This device is secure, flexible, rugged and worth the money.

Good, but...

By

from Northern VA  -  Professional

Works great for clamping onto just about anything - curtains, stair rails, light stands (clamp to side when second-shooting, or mount to top). Only downside is the cold-shoe. It's not at all secure (at least with my SB900/910 or PW FlexTT5)... I modify all of mine with a standard (cheap) shoe mount and some 1/4 20 thread. Works like a charm.

Problem solved!

By

from Chicago  -  Semi-Professional

Conventional flash / umbrella adapters mounted my flash - shoe mount trigger combo too high. I just clamp this to the stand below the umbrella mount and it brings the flash head even with the center of the umbrella.

Absolute must on any shoot

I have 10 of these clamps. They are my go-to piece of equipment when designing lighting for both photo and video shoots

Required Equipment

By

from Portland, Oregon  -  Semi-Professional

I often photograph people in locations (e.g. bars, restaurants, shops) that may not accommodate a light stand, but I can always find places to use these to position flash heads. They also let me "make" booms from things that most places have -- like a broom. Lately, I use them more than stands.

Great for SB-800, not secure for SB-910

By

from Toronto, Canada  -  Semi-Professional

I use the Justin clamp with my SB-800 and 910's and absolutely love it. My only complaint is that while the SB-800 fits nice and snug, the 910 seems loose and can fall out of the hot shoe even after locked. It happened to me yesterday while on a shoot and the flash fell 4 feet to the ground, breaking the diffuser dome.

Excellent Accessory

By

from Detroit Michigan  -  Semi-Professional

This is an excellent addition to your off-camera flash gear. A very sturdy clamp with a great cold shoe... holds your flash secure and mounts almost anywhere. Has rubber "feet" on the clamp side, so works well as a sturdy flash stand, and also holds tight when you clamp to a door, railing, rod or whatever is handy. Also has stud to mount on a flash stand. Definitely recommend this. Trying to justify a second one because they are so handy...

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
boomer s  I totally love this clamp.
Shopper  I use a Sony brand flash. Will it work with this clamp? If not is there 1 you recommend?
FRED C  This clamp uses a cold shoe, so there are two things you must think about: 1) Connecting the flash to the clamp. If your Sony flash uses a standard hot shoe mount, it should connect easily. 2) Firing the unit - if your Sony camera can trigger your flash via a wire or wireless connection, then you will use that same method with this flash. In summary, as long as you can fire your flash off camera, this clamp will give you the convenience of mounting it to a variety of components for better coverage and to improve your lighting options.
Shopper  Will this fit a Nikon sb900? I've read it had fitting issues. Thanks!
WES E  I don't shoot Nikon so I'm not sure. I do know that the SB900 has a thicker than normal hot shoe attachment so I would have to guess that you might have issues with it. I think the cold shoe that comes with the Justin clamp is not good anyway which is why I bought a bunch of Frio cold shoes (which Adorama conveniently sells) and put them on the clamps instead. In order to attach the Frios to the clamps you will need to buy some "set screws" from a hardware store. Installation is simple, just unscrew the cold shoe that comes with the Justin clamp and throw it in in the trash, then screw the set screw into the Frio and then the clamp and you're done.
