I recently took a Wimberley head, Manfrotto Super Clamp, D3x and 500VR to Africa. I can't handhold the beast not lest as I recently shattered my left wrist. So clamp went onto 4x4 bar, with Manfrotto brass stud to screw Wimberley to it. Load from camera kit caused the stud to strip the threads out of the clamp in less than a day.
Is there anything on the market which might be tougher as a clamp or am I going to have to have something made up?
Help! (please)
