Ballhead Arm Super Clamp Mount

A tripod can be really helpful in creating steady shots. The problem is that if you want a second camera to capture a different view from the same vantage point, it usually means that you need to have a second tripod. That isn't the case.

The Ballhead Arm Super Clamp allows you to mount a second camera to a tripod. It's really easy to install and strong enough to hold a DSLR.

The clamp cost about $14 to $20 on Amazon.com.

Five Things I have Learned

I have been using the clamp for a couple of months to record videos at a local church. Here are some of the things I have learned:

  1. I have found this is best as a set it and forget it. It's not very easy to move the camera left and right. This is best when you need a steady shot.
  2. There is a soft cushion inside the clamp. This prevents the clamp from doing any damage to the tripod.
  3. Not weatherproof! This isn't good to use outside if it rains or snows. I have found that some of the silver pieces will rust.
  4. Watch the weight! Especially on smaller tripods, you may not be able to balance this with another camera on the main tripod.
  5. The clamp is strong and when it's in it stays. I have never had it loosen up on me using it on a tripod or on a Pool Pole.
