Focus 2008 introduced me to a plethora of products and one in particular that caught my eye was the Professional Clamp from Lastolite.

Lastolite Professional ClampLastolite professional Clamp Overview
Designed with Portrait photographers in mind, the clamp is employed in small or cramped areas by clamping it to a door. The flash or studio light is then attached in the regular manner of the brass spigot.

This lessens the need for a lighting stand and further reduces the chances of red eye. Fixing the clamp to the top of the door could cause problems with the reflector, but the freedom of the clamp means that it can be lowered down the side of the door.

Lastolite professional Clamp Build quality
Only four parts of the clamp aren't made out of some kind of metal. The locking nut for the accessory attachment and the four rubber grips on the clamp. The spring is extremely strong, reminding me of one of those excercise hand grips.

Lastolite Professional ClampLastolite professional Clamp Verdict
This could be a very useful piece of equipment for photographers working in small spaces or who don't want to cart a lot of gear around, but know a door will be near them to attach the clamp to.
