It is certainly not the sexiest topic to talk about, but for any photographer or videographer working with any sort of lighting or studio equipment, the super clamp is a highly useful tool that will come in handy over and over again. This great video will introduce you to super clamps and show you some of the many things they are useful for.
Coming to you from Daniel Norton Photographer, this helpful video will teach you all about super clamps. Super clamps are, well, just that: clamps that hang on to things. They can clamp on to almost anything (poles, tripod legs, doors, stands, etc.) and can be used to hold lights, shelves, cross bars, plate glass, cameras, and more. For example, if you are a food photographer who needs to shoot a bunch of flat lays, instead of getting up on a ladder and trying to hold the camera perfectly parallel to the surface, you can use a super clamp with a tripod head and adapter to mount your camera to a boom pole to get the angle just right, then tether the camera. You are then free to change the layout without having to constantly climb up and down a ladder. That's just one of the many uses; check out the video above for more on these cheap and useful accessories.
