The Wimberley Gimbal II with Quick Release is a tripod head designed specifically for heavy and long lenses. The head incorporates a tilting arm with an adjustable platform for lens plates and camera body L brackets. Unless you are using your own camera L bracket or 35mm wide Arca-style mounting plate, you will need to rent a plate separately. We recommend the Wimberley P40 Arca-Type Quick Release Plate. Most super-telephoto lenses come with their own Arca-style feet, which are also suitable for connecting to this Gimbal. Telephoto lens feet with 45° dovetail grooves are going to be more secure than ones without and each lens is different so you may want to rent a plate to attach to the foot just in case. The plate can be easily detached from the platform for quick removal of your camera and lens from the gimbal itself.

Gimbals provide safer elevation of super-telephoto lenses thanks to a much better alignment of the lens' center of gravity to the head and tripod. Please note that this rental is for the gimbal head only. This gimbal does not come with a tripod and isn't very effective without one. Please consider renting additional leg support to connect this gimbal head to. The base of this gimbal head pans and has a locking knob so that you can track your subject and then secure your setup. The Wimberley Gimbal II with Quick Release is ideal for astrophotographers, wildlife/landscape photographers, time-lapsers, and anyone using (and needing proper support for) any lens 200mm and longer.
