Product Description

The C-12 Quick-Release Clamp by Wimberley replaces the former model, the C-10. This Arca-Swiss style clamp is 2.5″ long and was designed to attach to a tripod head or other piece of camera support equipment (tripod head, monopod, window or ground pod, shoulder stock, etc.), giving you a solid and secure attachment point for all of your cameras and lenses that have compatible Arca-Swiss style quick-release plates attached to them. A quick release plate is not included.

  • Unique tongue-in-pocket design protects clamp interior from dust and grime and provides extra length compared to typical Arca-Swiss style clamps which keeps the jaws of the clamp aligned properly
  • Special channels on the sides of the clamp provide greater fore-aft adjustment when using safety stops on Wimberley’s quick release plates
  • Captive knob secures internal workings of the clamp

Quick Release Geometry and Compatibility

The C-12 Quick Release Clamp by Wimberley uses Arca-Swiss type geometry. Thus, it should be compatible with any quick-release plate that claims to be Arca-Swiss style (or similarly labeled) such as Wimberley, Really Right Stuff, Kirk Enterprises, Arca-Swiss, Acratech, and Markins.
