Some smaller, essential items that you need in your grip kit are clamps. There will be many times when you will want to modify a light or set up a reflector. What types of clamps are you looking for? In this movie, author Abba Shapiro demonstrates the importance of including Cardellini clamps in your grip kit.
- The Cardellini clamp has two angled jaws…that are really useful because they can tighten…onto either a flat surface,…or they can tighten onto a round surface.…The other great thing about the Cardellini clamp…is there's rubber on the inside,…which affords us two things.…One, it keeps you from damaging whatever you're squeezing,…so you can put it say on a table,…and you're not going to necessarily, you know,…hurt the wood on a table.…And also that rubber gives it a little better grip.…And I find that this is really useful.…And they're really easy to use.…You can just tighten it around what you need to,…and spin it and you're good to go.…
Again, you can mount any kind of a grip clamp to this…and extend it with an arm.…And they come in different sizes.…You have the regular size Cardellini,…and then you can even get a teeny Cardellini.…
