From The Urbach Letter –
Cool Thing of the Month
Enter the diminutive Clampette. Weighing only two ounces and small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, the Clampette can hold the heaviest prosumer camera or camcorder. The setscrew fits all standard ¼" tripod threads, and it easily clamps onto the nearest steady object: a chair back, bookshelf, desk edge, car window, etc. Or clamp it on any hardcover book to make a great table-top tripod (see the website for "action" photos). The head pivots and swivels. Made in the USA by High Sierra Manufacturing, the Clampette sells for just $12. Get one and get in the picture!
