New Sunwayfoto Custom Discal Quick Release Clamp for Arca-Swiss P0

Together with the recent release of the Updated DDH Series of Panning Clamps (Preview), Sunwayfoto has also released a custom clamp for the Arca-Swiss® P0 ball head.

Reverting to a long tongue alignment mechanism for the moving jaw, a long screw knob and a satin-black hard coat anodizing, the new Sunwayfoto DDY-60p0 Discal Quick Release clamp reminds me a lot of the old Sunwayfoto DDY-64 Discal Quick Release Clamp (Review) in looks.

The QR Clamp

Manufacturer Specification:
Model:DDY-60p0 Discal
Diameter:60 mm
Length:99 mm
Height:15 mm
Mounting thread:3/8"-16 UNC
Clamp Type:Long Screw Knob
Weight:105 gr

Nevertheless, besides the sturdy structure the DDY-60p0 is all new with a 60 mm diameter to match the top platform of the P0 ball head exactly.

Further to that, the mounting holes inherent on all of the Sunwayfoto DDY series Discal Clamps are gone, giving their place to a small alignment hole in one of the safety stop screw relief grooves for the P0 and a bubble level in the other.



Mounting on the P0 Head

Using the included 1/4"-20 to 3/8"-16 bushing on the 1/4"-20 stud of the P0, the Discal clamp can be screwed onto the top platform of the head via its 3/8"-16 center mounting hole. The slim clamp adds only 15 mm to the total head height.
Needless to say that the DDY-60p0 can be aligned and used with any ball head or leveling base that matches the clamp diameter via its center mounting hole.

I hope you found the information useful, thank you for viewing.
