Photographers all over the world have many pieces of gear that are essential to their unique setups. However, if you are a wedding, event, or even outdoor photographer, having the right camera angle and setup is key to secure that perfect shot. As such, you want to have the mobility or freedom when you’d like a specific orientation —be it portrait or landscape. Or you might have a pocket wizard on your hot shoe but need an additional cold shoe mount for another rig that you want to attach to your camera.
Plus, if you’re having a photoshoot, say for example, at a wedding, you need to be mindful of having just the right lighting. Instead of having to carry all the big, bulky light stands, you want to have a more efficient setup.
The answer to all of this are camera clamps and mounts. Camera clamps and mounts work well for different photoshoot scenarios, because they help free the photographer’s hands and create a more free-flowing setup. They also tend to be lightweight, compact and inconspicuous lending themselves to events where camera gear can look unsightly or when traveling where gear quickly becomes heavy.
