Clamping Flashguns to Posts/Rigging etc
Jan 30, 2013

I do a lot of music work where I have access to the stage.

I am looking to install 1 or 2 remote flashguns by clamping them to the lighting rigging already in place. I've currently been messing around with light stands but they're not ideal with drunk DJs/Entourages getting in the way and/or knocking them!

I was just looking for some advice on the best way to go about this on a smallish budget?

I think it will need to go:

CLAMP > 1/4" Thread > Mini Ball Head > 3/8" to Hotshoe > Trigger > Flashgun

Anyone done similar things? What did you use?

Clamp-wise has anyone used a lighting c or s-clamp like this: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Soundlab-Heavy-Duty-Lighting-S-Clamp-/270950697365?_trksid=p3284.m263&_trkparms=algo%3DSI%26its%3DI%26itu%3DUCI%252BRTU%252BUA%252BFICS%26otn%3D21%26pm od%3D400329611340%26ps%3D54

There's dedicated clamps like this (http://www.wexphotographic.com/buy-kaiclip-nano-clamp/p1527171) but if it needn't be twice the price why pay it

Thanks in advance
