What Our Customers Are Saying...

Testimonials

  • I've been using Ultralight clamps and connectors for years and have had nothing but great luck with them. They are also incredibly responsive to inquiries about their products.

    Specifically, I absolutely love the cut-out clamps which allow you to position your strobes in almost any position. These clamps are a total game-changer for strobe positioning and I would never go back to standard clamps after trying these.

    -Hank Kollross
  • Ultralight Control Systems offers a quality product at an affordable price. The arm kits were exactly what we needed to mount monitors to cinema cameras. We put them to the test and they withstood repeated use. Very pleased with them!

    Ken at Ultralight also provided our group with tremendous support for an event. Not only does he offer this excellent product but he is personable and available for questions and feedback. It is awesome to have business owners who truly want to connect with their customers.

  • The Ultralight clamps are truly exceptional for any underwater photography setup. Their precision and control in positioning strobes or lights surpasses any other brand on the market. I have tried numerous alternatives, but none compare to the quality and durability of Ultralight. I highly recommend them for their reliability and long-lasting performance.

    -Valerio M
  • Wonderful, durable, American made arms and clamps - I bought mine at Bluewater Photo in 2010 and they are still going strong after literally thousands of dives!! I haven't even replaced my orings on the arms yet (Sorry Ken - I know I should!). Ken, the owner of Ultralight, is a personal friend and a wonderful dive buddy - it's nice knowing that the person behind your gear, and knowing the hard work they put behind it.

    -Nirupam Nigam
  • Excellent customer service and amazing original product by the original product manufacturer. 10/10 best camera support arm system I use.

    -Tiffany Aug
  • I am a professional underwater photographer and filmmaker, I have been using Ultralight parts on my underwater camera housing for 10 years now. It is no doubt the most reliable brand I have ever used, the ecosystem will also allow you to freely customize your rig according to the type of diving you do to make the job easier, from GoPro to a RED. Highly recommended.

Comparing Plastic and Aluminum GoPro and Action Camera Tripod Mounts

We've fielded inquiries about why we don't produce aluminum tripod mounts for GoPro or action camera housings. Much of this query boils down to a key factor: aluminum isn't designed for repetitive bending, as it can lead to cracking or breakage.
