C-12 Quick Release Clamp - Compatibility

Blemished version available
C-12 Quick-Release Clamp ($79.00) - Length: 2.5"     What's Included

The C-12 replaces our C-10 Clamp. The geometry of the C-12’s central mounting holes, combined with the large selection of fasteners that are included with the clamp allow you to securely attach the clamp to a much wider variety of equipment than any other clamp on the market. It is important that you use the removal and installation instructions on our clamp compatibility section to determine which fasteners are needed for your particular application.

Lens Plate Compatibility

Our quick-release clamps use the "Arca-Swiss style" geometry and are therefore compatible with all Arca-Swiss style lens plates.


Safety Stop Compatibility

Our clamps have special grooves that allow for greater fore-aft adjustment when using lens plates that have safety stops.
