For some of the sections of the Scrambler ultralight modular tripod (a Scramble and GP-Net Media collaboration) we offer a number of very comparable options. However, this is not the case when it comes to the camera quick release clamp; the Selens SC-22 was by far the best of the lightweight clamps.
The Selens SC-22
The Selens SC-22 is an ultralight Arca Swiss compatible clamp with a cold shoe mount on its underside (which we don't use, but videographers might; attached to a cage connecting monitors or microphones).
Of all the sub 50g Arca Swiss compatible clamps we tested (and there were many) the SC-22 was not only the lightest, but in terms of quality was head and shoulders above the rest. Superbly machined and finished, the SC-22 has no breakable plastic knobs or cheap spirit levels, it's a clamp, it's reliable and super-light and that's exactly what we were after.
There's a reason the Selens SC-22 is a little more expensive than most of the generic slim arca clamps out there - it's superior in every way
