-The Stick #3304 has a stiff fiberglass rod that will not bend or break when pressing into the ground.

-All of our products have an internal copper wire to add stiffness to the flexible arm.

-McClamps store flat and include a nylon carrying bag to protect camera and lenses in your camera bag.

Why The Stick?
Most macro photographers work in soil areas and refine their compositions by nudging the tripod slightly. The STICK version of the McClamp is anchored into the soil allowing the photographer to move the tripod without disturbing the subject. This method is preferable to clamping the McClamp to the tripod. The photographer can move around the subject to fine tune the angle of light, the background, and the overall composition.

Item#3301 (Most Popular)

When it comes to macro photography all photographers agree that a good tripod is essential. However, even with a tripod, all it takes is a slight breeze to give you what looks like a “hand-held” photograph. Adding the McClamp to your camera bag will help you get that perfectly sharp image that you are striving for.

WARRANTY - Every McClamp includes a full warranty. We are fully aware that some users may overly stress plastic connections and parts. Try not to force joints past their strength but if you do we will repair or replace the broken parts. Please contact sales@fmphotography.us (we will probably ask you to send a photo of the damaged McClamp).

Note: A soapy solution is applied to the segments during assembly.  Washing the segments in warm water will help to stiffen the articulated arm, as will continuous use.
