New Takeway Clampod T1 announced by Kenro

Is it a tripod? Is it a clamp? No, it’s the new Clampod !

A versatile new device has been introduced into the UK and Ireland by
Kenro, which allows you to securely fix a camera, phone, flash or tablet
to a variety of objects.

The new Takeway Clampod T1 is manufactured from aerospace grade aluminium
alloy, making it lighter and stronger than many other camera clamps –
weighing just 200g, including ball head.

Designed to firmly hold most photo and lighting devices in place, the
Clampod T1 is supplied with its own ball head with quick release
mechanism (load capacity 3kg), but also allows users to use their own if required.
The clamp body has a maximum load capacity of 40kg.

The T1 can be fixed to a variety of solid objects including handlebars,
surfboards, sports equipment, cars, tree branches and railings,
allowing photos, video footage or selfies from any angle.

The cubic ‘jaw’ tip offers a rotatable tip with three different sides: X
side, smooth side, and cubic. You can choose the appropriate side for
different surfaces to make clamping easier and more stable. You can
attach your electronic products securely and easily, even on an irregular

Most standard cylinders can be clamped with the inner jaw – it can clamp
on cylinders whose diameter is between 16mm and 30mm.

The ergonomic disc handle is made of soft plastic and is precise and
simple to use, allowing the user to screw in the clamp quickly and easily.

Not only does the clamp mechanism provide a very stable platform, the
removable base forms a tripod-like stand to allow the unit to sit on flat
and angled surfaces.

Adding to its usefulness, any flash or lighting device that has a
standard 1/4 inch tripod thread can be connected, enabling versatile
illumination for photo shoots.

The kit includes the clamp body, a ball head, smartphone holder, inner
jaw, base, stand and carry pouch. Optional accessories include a
Smartphone Holder for Sports and a Tablet Holder.

Says Paul Kench, Kenro’s managing director: “You only need to look at the
Takeway Clampod T1 to realise how versatile and useful this device is. We
see it as a must-have accessory in every professional’s camera bag as
well as a fun piece of kit for photo and video enthusiasts. Plus, the
Clampod T1 is supplied with a three-year warranty – testimony to the
manufacturer’s confidence in the product.”

With immediate availability, the Takeway Clampod T1 has an SRP of £59.94
including VAT.
