PHFXTools rodClaw – Single 15/19mm support rod clamp for DSMC2 cameras


Phil Holland has collaborated with Matthew Duclos of Duclos Lenses to create the rodClaw.

The rodClaw is an accessory that attaches to the operator side of a DSMC2 camera body via the two M3 receivers found underneath the media to provide a rod clamp without the need of adding a base plate which ultimately adds weight and mass.


A single 19mm or15mm LWS rod (with the included adaptor) can be mounted into the rodClaw to mount accessories like a lens motor, follow focus, microphone or EVF clamp. This is great if you want to stay light or mounting the camera onto a drone, gimbal or even handheld.

Using the rodClaw on a gimbal setup would allow you to keep your setup intact as the rod supports are usually found on the gimbal plate.

The rodClaw kit retails for $115 USD and includes:
– 1x rodClaw
– 1x 19mm to 15mm adapter bushing
– 4x M3 bolts

The rodClaw is available to purchase from Duclos Lenses and soon will be available in other familiar places.
