I think it's about time I join this thread, now that I own a clamp (Manfrotto superclamp).

Not critiqueing, but a few wraps of e-tape on the 2' runs of Schoeps active cables have made a world of difference for me. I can deploy in about a minute and bust down in less time than that... And, if I plan ahead, I can actually  :cheers: with friends...

I'll put in a plug for using a safety cable, (or safety bond in UK) whenever hanging gear over people's heads or where it could crash down and hurt something if the clamp failed.
Here is a link to the safety cable used on what has become a standard stage lighting fixture, the "LEKO" which weighs a lot more than any microphone setup I've seen.

We can use their 5:1 safety ratio as a guide though 10:1 is not stupid. If your mics weigh 5 lbs with the clamp, get a "safety bond" that can hold 25 lbs and secure it running underneath the cables so it doesn't pinch them in case it needs to function.

Thank you for this. I was concerned the entire night about the clamp failing and someone getting hurt below. Getting a safety cable rated to a much higher weight for if I attach my soon-to-arrive extension pole from a balcony.

ycoop, I have 2 of those listed above, nothing we (amateur recordists) typically do mic/boom stand wise would require more than the 5:1 ratio unless you are running tube LD's. It looks "small" and is not very expensive, but will do the job.

I have a Bogen 3373 which is the 7' light stand.  I hacked the legs a little to give it a smaller footprint which sacrifices max height as well as stability a little. 

I want to clamp my Canon Vixia XA10 onto it for a static shot.  This is gonna make it more top heavy than it already is. 

Beside lowering the stand's center of gravity and taping the thing down does anyone have any tips on how to clamp the camera to my stand?  I have Rowis and a Superclamp but cannot get the camera out far enough away from the stand, or it is at the wrong angle.  Personally, I'd prefer the former since it weighs less.

I'm sure the same thing is available under a lot of different brand names.

Does that thing say it weighs 3 kilograms?  6.5 pounds?  I really only need something half that size I bet.

No. The maximum **load** is 3kg / 6.5 pounds which should be enough for a small camera or a camcorder.
If you need more: Manfrotto 244N (very sturdy, extremely heavy and more expensive)

My Matthews telescopic baby stand extension arrived today (woohoo)!

I’m now trying to figure out how to attach a stereo bar with 5/8” threads to the stud. It looks like I’ll need a rapid adapter, but I can only find them going from 5/8” stud to 3/8” or 1/4” threads. Do I have to go 5/8” stud > 3/8” or 1/4” threads > threaded adapter to 5/8” threads or are there 5/8” stud > 5/8” threads rapid adapters that I just can’t find?

I use the Superclamp and short extension https://www.amazon.com/Impact-Extension-Spigot-Super-Clamp/dp/B00HCQDGI8 then I put my pan and tilt head on the spigot. 

It gets the camera out 6 inches or so from the stand so I can use the flip screen but not so far out that it makes it wobbly.

I like these because if they get stuck, which they always do, you can use a quarter in the top slot to pry them loose.

Yup, kindms and I are thinking of one of these for our Mathews extension pole:

same page as rigpimp listed, only this is the specific 3/8 inch stud.

same page as rigpimp listed, only this is the specific 3/8 inch stud.

I bought the Manfrotto flavor back in 2003 and use it 99% of the time I record.  It is strong like ox.

Minor MAJOR annoyance of mine when I first started taping was those damned thread adapters. Come off the stand? Stay in the mount? Drop in a muddy puddle on the first day of a fest?

Used the super clamp+telescopic extension for the first time last night. The clamp could only latch on in a way that caused the pole to be at an angle. Is there any way to avoid this with a superclamp or would a c clamp be the way to get it up perpendicular to the ledge?

Superclamps typically come with a wedge insert that allows it to clamp flat to a table top. I always lose that insert and have to wing it.

A lot of people prefer a Matthelini type jaw clamp for flat surfaces.

This is what i would use and works great in that situation. Ive had the same issue, even with the wedge in the superclamp.

If you lose the rubber insert superclamps are good for round rails, use a flat C-clamp like a Rowi for tables and lips.

You can buy a 4 pack of the wedges if you lose one and need a replacement.

Thanks for the link, I was having trouble finding a clamp with an opening larger than 2”. That price is pretty steep though  :-\

Gear that enables you to set up in the ideal location is worth the expense, IMO.

I think I use the Manfrotto quick release more than any other clamp. Although I use superclamps a fair bit too, esp. on round rails.

Think i found one on ebay a ways back around 35. It really was worth it. I use it all the time.

I ended up going with 6” wide jaw impact brand Matthellini type clamp that I found used (open box) on Amazon for $35.
