Nasty Clamps Nasty Flag Quick Take Video.


Here is a quick take on the new French Flag from Nasty Clamps. The Nasty Flag is simply a Nasty Clamp with a French Flag. There are three mounting holes at the base of the flag. There is a matte side and shiny side. If you already own a Nasty Clamp the Nasty Flag can be purchased separately. The Nasty Flag will set you back around sixty smackers. A French Flag of some kind should be a kit essential. Lens flares are in vogue but you never know when you may need something better than you AC’s hand.

Here is a rip from the Nasty Clamps website.

Nasty Flags are modular (the flex-arm can be shortened or lengthened), and the attachment point for the flex-arm on the flag can be set left, right, or center…  That’s what those “buttons” on the flag are for (covering up the optional attachment points). Not to be too blunt about it, but if you’re a shooter who regularly uses a tripod, jib arm, motion control unit, cage, or slider dolly with your camera, then you need a Nasty Flag.

You’ll wonder how you ever got by without one.

*Nasty Flags are made from super-tough ABS plastic (the same stuff that LEGOs™ are made from), and each flag is individually machined in Portland, Oregon.

**The Flag itself is approximately 9 inches across by 5.5 inches in depth.  The flex-arm coming off of the clamp is approximately 16 inches long.
