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?



We have been using the articulated arm recently. The thing is pretty versatile and allows for just about any angle

I probably use the two section articulated arm more often than I do my stand nowadays. With a Superclamp I can get either or both of my active setups just about anywhere I like. Best gear purchase I've made.

Stream of consciousness after a show on Thurday night.

We all clamped to a Matthews/Cardellini and pole extension on a single solid horizontal rail with the Matthews clamp in the vertical position. Photog buddy of mine pointed out the fact that the clamp point was a single point of failure. A single pivot point.

No issues. But the fact that a Super-clamp on either a horizontal pipe or vertical pipe spinning out of place made me think: Any ideas on how to mate a combo of the super clamp/Matthelini on both the Horizontal plane as well as the Vertical plane?

I'm thinking a super clamp on the vert. pipe and the Matthew-Lini on the Horizontal. Or vice versa.

Team Philly always runs safety cables. But just trying to hash out a solution that is mechanically superior...

I **know** there is a solution out there, but the Matthews/Cardellini/Bogen sites just ain't doin' for me at the moment...

Simplest might be to bridge the two clamps with an articulated arm. Or a combination of Matthews Mini Grip heads or Microgrip heads and 3/8" rods. 9.Solutions also makes a series of 3/8" grip heads, rods and clamps. Check out the 9.solutions Python Clamp Mini product photos to see how they combine various rods, clamps and heads to create multiple mounting points.

Just saw this on B&H; what do you guys think of it:
https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1434572-REG/camvate_c1196_crab_clamp_with_ball.html

I've been wracking my brain lately trying to figure out what to get for a clamp setup, but this seems perfect! Could maybe use a longer arm, though.

interesting with the 360' ballhead. Is this why it is less money than a Manfrotto:

Made from CNC-machined aluminum
   $19.99

he Manfrotto 035RL Super Clamp is made of lightweight cast alloy
         but not that much more money: $29.02
OR is it just the brand which commands the $$?

Depends on the alloy, I guess. What I like about the Camvate is that it doesn't need any adapters or anything like that. I'm gonna get it, and once I've used it, I'll post a review.

+T       for that cost, if it does what you want, I like the flexibility of it as well. Let us know your opinion of it once you use it.

I've got this mic bar attached to a Bogen 196 arm/Super Clamp with an adapter. Is there a way to secure the bar to the arm? It just kind of sits there (not loose but not tight).

You need a rapid adapter. Manfrotto 014-38. Other manufacturers make them too and might be a dollar or two less.
