Huntington Beach, CA—The Slik Creator’s Clamp is a multifunction tool that provides support for cameras, small lights and monitors, as well as phones. Moreover, it works in confined spaces where a tripod is impractical.
The device also offers versatility. Its reverse surface adapter conveniently rotates 180° to adapt to flat or round surfaces. Rather than provide multiple parts, an included hex key lets users untighten and rotate the adapter from flat to round. Furthermore, teeth grooves are embedded to make the process more intuitive.
Slik Creator’s Clamp Features
The universal clamp, crafted from lightweight aluminum, is a solution for creators and vloggers working in tight spaces. They can mount the clamp to countertops, desks, shelves, kitchen islands, etc. In fact, it will mount to any surface, flat or round, up to three inches wide.
What’s more, its compact design minimizes bulk and makes it portable. Photographers in the field can clamp it to poles, rails as well as branches. Lightweight, by itself the clamp takes up about the same room in a camera bag as a standard zoom lens for on-the-go setups.
Included with the clamp is a removable 17-inch sliding pole to move a camera, light or other attachment up and down or extend it from the center fulcrum. The pole comes with a U1/4 20″ thread to mount to almost any ball head, as well as a U3/8″ thread adapter. Dual accessory ports also let users hook up a second attachment simultaneously to the clamp and included thread adapters.
Creator’s Studio Kit
In addition, Slik offers a complete studio setup: the Creator’s Studio Kit. It bundles the Creator’s Clamp with the Slik Sliding Arm II and the compact, lightweight SBH-400AS ball head.
Sliding Arm II
For product photographers, vloggers, studio professionals as well as amateur enthusiasts searching for new perspectives, this is essentially a mini boom arm. It enables creators to position a camera or other attachment extended away from the center column of a tripod or the clamp’s sliding pole. Consequently, creators can access angles and vantage points that may be otherwise inaccessible.
The arm is connected to a fulcrum that permits rotation, tilt and slide for free movement in almost any direction. Moreover, the arm extends up to 19.5 inches from the tripod’s center column to capture lay-flat overhead perspectives. This feature is useful for vlogging, video tutorials as well as macro photography.
The sliding arm has two knobs. One controls the slide; the other controls rotation and angle. A hook is included, opposite the head, to attach a third-party counterweight for increased stability.
SBH-400AS Ball Head
This compact, low-profile ball head features an independent pan knob and tension adjustment dial. The cam lock quick-release system allows users to attach the camera from the top of the platform without sliding in or out of the grooves.
The SBH-400AS ball head weighs 0.6 pound. However, it supports up to 8.8 pounds of gear. Furthermore, the head can handle a professional DSLR with a standard lens. It also has a separate lock with degree markings around the base for stitching together panoramic photos.
The Slik Creator’s Clamp retails for $69.95. The Creator’s Studio Kit, bundling the Creator’s Clamp, the Sliding Arm II and the SBH-400AS ball head, has an SRP of $159.95.
