As you may recall from older reviews and update posts Desmond was the first with their Desmond DBA-1 QR Clamp more than a year ago, followed a few months ago by the lighter Desmond DBA-2 .
Although Sunwayfoto prices have dropped last month, the MAC-14 Manfrotto® RC2 / Arca-Swiss® dual compatibility QR clamp is still a little more expensive than its rivals. Nevertheless, what you get in plus is the exemplary Sunwayfoto quality and superb finishing.
The MAC-14 clamp
The Sunwayfoto MAC-14 looks a bit like the new Desmond DBA-2, however it retains something of the Sunwayfoto touch as it is a direct descendant of the original Sunwayfoto DDC-60 screw knob clamp.
|Compatibility:||Arca-Swiss® / Manfrotto® 200PL-14 RC2|
|Jaw Length:||60 mm (2.36")|
|Width:||99 mm (3.90")|
|Thickness:||21 mm (0.83")|
|Mounting Thread:||UNC 3/8"-16|
|Weight:||124 gr (4.40 oz)|
|The maximum dimensions of 99 mm (3.90") and 60 mm (2.36") of the Sunwayfoto MAC-14 combined with its mass of 124 gr ( 4.4 oz) classify it in the large clamp category.|
Mounted on a Ball Head
|Sunwayfoto MAC-14 QR Clamp is easy to attach on a ball head ball-stem either via its 3/8"-16 threaded center hole or via the included M6 stainless-steel hex-socket screw.|
I hope you found the information useful, thank you for viewing.
