Bought these clamps a month ago and have worked very well in most applications. The shoe mount on the ball head is quite snug and sometimes a challenge to insert or take out the flash unit. DO NOT over tighten the lock mechanism on your flash unit! I broke the shoe mount on the ball head this weekend after snugging up the lock on my 580 II. Mostly, the shoe mount is tight enough to not even need to tighten the locking mechanism. Over all, a great product that has been VERY handy for this strobist.

Replace the cold shoe. The included cold shoe is a weak, insecure friction mount that looks a lot like a Manfrotto 143S Flash Shoe for Magic Arm - Replaces 2932. This plastic, non-locking (friction-based) cold shoe is the weak link. I removed the OEM cold shoe (and thumb wheel underneath it), and replaced it with a 1/4"-20 x 3/4" L socket set screw from the hardware store (3/4" is the perfect length, although I think a 1/2" length may also work) and the excellent 300-SHO Stroboframe Bracket Shoe Mount.

1. unscrew the plastic cold shoe and thumb wheel.
2. screw in the 1/4"-20 x 3/4" L socket set finger-tight.
3. Tighten the socket set screw more securely with a hex wrench.
3. Screw on your new cold shoe.

The Stroboframe cold shoe is metal, clamps your flash gun via thumbscrew, and does not touch the flash contact points on the foot (which may short circuit the flash). Alternatively, you may also be interested in the "Frio" cold shoe (Frio ENLFRC1A Cold Shoe Mount for Tripods). An interesting design, but it doesn't work quite as well with weather-sealed flashes as the rubber "boot" gets in the way of the secondary locking mechanism. You just need to shove it in a little harder.

Alternatively, you can make your own Justin-style clamp for less money with a plain Manfrotto 175 Spring Clamp - Replaces 2936, a mini ball head, and a cold shoe if you are willing to drill the hole yourself.

This Justin Clamp is very handy for mounting my Nikon Sb-800 strobes in places where I can't get a light stand into. It clamps very well and it's secure. The plastic coldshoe fits the strobe nice and snug so you don't have to worry about the strobe falling out. The clamp end is strong and grips things very well. It also has a standard light stand stud on it as well as a clamp to accept a stud from a light stand. I highly recommend this clamp!

If you use off-camera lighting then you may occasionally find yourself in a situation in which a traditional lighting stand is impractical or inconvenient. If you don't have the options of having an assistant hold your remote flash in just the right spot then a clamp may be the way to go. The Manfrotto 175F-1 spring-loaded clamp is a sturdy and versatile way to park your light pretty much wherever you like.

When I stopped by my parent's house yesterday, my cousin asked me to take a few pictures of her beloved chihuahua, Winston. We situated him by a window so there was lots of nice, even, natural light falling on one side of him. However, the light rapidly dropped off making his profile a little stark. A lighting stand would have worked just fine in this situation but it takes a bit more time to set up. The Manfrotto clamp was a much easier choice. Along with a Canon Speedlite 430 EX II flash and Pocket Wizard FlexTTL5 attached to the clamp, I was able to put together an impromptu fill-light arrangement without much hassle.

The light from the window and the flash were both falling on Winston at about equal but opposite angles and I was positioned between the two. Could I have gotten by without off-camera lighting? Sure. But, a little fill helped things out a lot. As you can see from the pictures here you can configure the 175F-1 to accommodate a diffusor umbrella as well provided you attach a standard umbrella mount to the additional spigot on the side of the clamp. It comes standard with a swivel mounted cold-shoe to attach your flash directly to the clamp.

You can also see that I was using a Stofen OM-EW Omni Bounce Diffusor on the Speedlite 430 EX II.

This product is pure anathema to the DIY photography craze. These clamps are luxurious by any measure, built like a precision tank, and carry a premium price tag. Though there are various alternatives such sold under the Flashpoint and Cowboy Studio brand, that are decent by any measure, they come nowhere close in terms of quality (I owned them). I would consider at least one of these clamps a necessary tool in the bag of any strobist.

The unit easily handles my SB700's or SB900's. The clamp mechanism is very strong with a design that is adaptable to irregular surfaces as well as light stand or top of a door. The clamp has quality rubber tacks to prevent scratching surfaces. The quality ball head provides the ability to position the flash in any manner. My only caveat, which for some might be a plus, is that the flash cold shoe is plastic. Obviously, plastic would prevent a short in the flash unit (problem when the first SB900's hit the market). However, I remain concerned about long term durability. I admit- a very minor concern given the pure quality of the unit.

The Manfrotto Clamp also accepts the Manrotto (or other brand) flexible arm (3/8 attachment). On location, this is a powerful combination allowing you to improvise, adapt, and overcome the many variables on location.

Get at least one of these clamps and you will never doubt the return of investment. But, to be honest, the cheaper versions from other brands may be just as useful.
