Top Customer Reviews
The mount was very easy to use. It has rubberized mounting surfaces to help with grip and vibration. The fixed surface has a notch in it to help with mounting on round objects like handlebars. It seemed very secure in my evaluation. There are two axis adjustments- a knurled knob that allows you to pivot the arm 360 degrees, and then a tri-arm knob that controls the fore-aft placement of the arm as well as the ball that holds the camera stud, which is the standard 1/4-20. The knurled knob on the ball does not spin independent of the ball, so you have to leave the tri-knob loose until your camera is secured. Overall, this gives a great range of movement. I tried many locations on my bike, but most of the handlebar mounts were too low for my application.
I would rate this as a good value for the money, and it would likely work well in a majority of applications.
If there was a complaint, like other reviewers have already said, the threads on the screw will rust if you don't take care of it. I've found if you wipe it clean after every job and oil it, it stays strong for a long time. I wish I knew that earlier because I blew through my first few before I finally figured it out.
There is a youtuber who made a really good video about these clamps. Here is a link.
That video got me to buy two clamps and I always have at least one in my camera bag.
In the first situation, it often works well. I've clamped my Canon Rebel on to the backs of chairs and it works well enough as a substitute tripod. Granted, I'd rather have a tripod but in some situations it's just not possible. Often times, I've found that the clamp isn't large enough to hold onto a table or other object so you'll have to get creative.
For motion pictures, I've clamped the camera to hockey sticks and skateboards so that I could experiment with motion. I admit, this isn't for the faint of heart: strapping an expensive, heavy camera to a hockey stick and swinging it around. The clamp will do its duty as long as you do yours. The clamp has yet to slip but I've made sure that the camera is secure before trying anything too vigorous. I also wrap the shoulder strap around the stick or my arm in case anything happens but the Pedco Ultraclamp works wonderfully.
It latches onto the camera pretty snugly and doesn't budge until you give it enough pressure. The rubber grips on the clamp itself works really well on most surfaces as long as it fits: glass, wood, plastic, etc. It works great with my Canon Rebel but I'm hesitant to try anything more intense with it due to weight like strapping it to a motorcycle or offroad vehicle. This would probably work better with a compact camera.
I highly recommend picking up this product. It's lightweight and sturdy. I toss it into my purse if I know I can't bring my tripod and I hardly know it's in there.
