Manfrotto Clamp: 035BN Binocular Super Clamp

I had a question a few days ago from someone looking to attach their binoculars to a tripod, but their binoculars did not have the moutning thread and they were wondering if it was still possible.

Universal Binocular Tripod Adapters

The good news is that it is still easily done with a universal tripod adapter for binoculars. There are a few types, the most commonly used have a curved base and an adjustable strap that allows for binoculars of many sizes to be mounted to them and then attached to a tripod. But I recently came across a Manfrotto Clamp designed for binoculars that is also worth taking a look at:

Manfrotto Binocular Super Clamp 035BN

The Manfrotto Binocular Super Clamp is ideally suited to porro prism binoculars, but will clamp onto any binocular with a tube size from 13 to 55mm. It is designed to securely hold one of the barrels of your binoculars and is then attached to your tripod head. This binocular clamp is especially useful for binoculars without a traditional tripod moutning thread to be attached to a tripod or monopod.

The Manfrotto 035BN binocular clamp has a load capacity of 15kg. Clamp range round tube: 13-55mm. Attachment to the tripod ot your tripod headc(bottom): 16mm hexagonal + M5 & 1/4″ threads. Weight: 0.25kg.
