Comments about Bogen Imaging Bogen - Manfrotto Spring Grip Clamp with Attached Flash Shoe.:

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.

Justin Clamp - Expensive But Needed

Bulky

Comments about Bogen Imaging Bogen - Manfrotto Spring Grip Clamp with Attached Flash Shoe.:

I love this clamp, it is a well made piece and well thought out - and STRONG.

I don't recommend using it for this but I recently mounted a large dSLR and zoom lens on a pistol grip ball-head secured ONLY by the Bogen 175F clamp, and it HELD.

Since buying this, I've bought $3 clamps at the home improvement store and bolted 1/4 tripod bolts to them and use them to mount my off-camera flashes. Those work great as a DIY cheap solution, but the Justin clamp is more professional polished solution and the price reflects that.

This is one the best things I have ever purchased! I take these clamps everywhere I go, weddings, sports, outdoors, I mean everywhere. Very solid build, very handy, compact, yet very very strong! These quickly clamp onto almost anything to mount a light with or without an umbrella. I use these with my Nikon SB-800 speedlights, for adding a 2nd, 3rd or 4th light for shots. A must have!

A handy tool in my bag of tricks

Lightweight, Portable, Strong Construction

Fill Flash, Lighting, Photojournalism, Placing remote strobes
Bottom Line:

Comments about Bogen Imaging Bogen - Manfrotto Spring Grip Clamp with Attached Flash Shoe.:

I love these flash shoe clamps and would it love even more if I could find a source to buy a handful of the flash shoe mount that threads into the mini ballhead. This clamp is wonderfully helpful for a variety of editorial photo assignments and allows me to do fast but competent remote lighting set ups using an off-camera flash and commander unit or radio slave. I find I can easily clamp a strobe to the edge of chairs, tables, counters, shelves, filing cabinets, rails, etc. and carry one or two of these with me at all times. When in doubt or traveling ultra light, I'll often grab one of these clamps rather a compact light stand.
