New in the Grip Room at SYNC:
The Manfrotto 043 Sky Hook Adjustable Gaffer Clamp is a lightweight gaffer clamp, with adjustable jaws to handle tubes from 1″ to 2-1/2″. It features one fixed 5/8″ stud, and one 5/8″ socket with double-ended 3/8″ to 1/4″ spigot.
Talented photographer and SYNC client Jim Wimberg (who’s work can be found here) has this to say about them:
“I love the Manfrotto Sky Hook Gaffer clamp. It is an extremely versatile piece of grip equipment. Mostly I use them to hold bounce cards or cutters for my table-top product and still life work. You can attach them into a C-stand arm and articulate the bounce card to ANY angle. They are very strong. I also use them to hold heavy glass objects to modify my tungsten lights. Again, I can position my “low-tech” modifier to any angle and get beautiful patterns on set with this combination. And they are adjustible. You can increase the opening and use them to hold a drape on a large diameter cross bar for a background sweep. They’re very handy and I always have a few with me on set. Great product!”
Jim used the technique he described to achieve this gorgeous editorial shot.
