A staple on any film or video set, the Manfrotto 175F-2 Cold Shoe Clamp is a great way to lighten your gear bag while utilizing your on-camera flash to light your subject. The clamp allows on-the-go photographers to take advantage of the off-camera TTL capabilities of their camera systems to create mini kits of lightweight flashes, as well as support lights or cameras weighing up to 4.4 lb. Its jaw can clamp onto items up to 1.57" thick, such as chairs, shelves, and poles. Rubber nubs on the inside of the clamp prevent scratching and damage to paint or furniture. The clamp has a 5/8" receiver for light stands and a 5/8" stud for gripware like super clamps with matching receivers. The 175F-2 Cold Shoe Clamp is topped with a metal locking shoe mounted on a rotating ball for precise placement of your gear.
