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: od%3D400329611340%26ps%3D54

There's dedicated clamps like this ( but if it needn't be twice the price why pay it

Thanks in advance
