Wimberley Gimbal II with Arca Swiss Quick Release Base (Requires Plate)
Theft not covered.
The Gimbal Head is a specialized tripod head for telephoto lenses. Its gimbal-type design allows you to rotate your lens around its center of gravity and thus easily manipulate very large lenses. Since its introduction in 1991, the Gimbal Head has become the industry standard for serious nature photographers.
The Wimberley WH-200 Wimberley Head Version II is a gimbal-type tripod head that incorporates an elevated tilt mechanism and adjustable platform to make the camera/lens' center of gravity and tilt axis of the head be perfectly aligned.
Things once thought of as impossible with a ballhead are nothing short of mundane with a Wimberley, because a weightless camera/lens combo (even a 600mm f/4 w/ large body) can literally be controlled with one finger. Point the rig where you want and take the hand away, and it stays exactly where you put it.
The Version II head is more compact and lightweight, features a redesigned panning base, "soft-touch" knobs, and includes a built-in Arca-type quick release base. You will need an Arca-swiss baseplate for your lens to attach to the Gimbal head and we have either the Wimberly P40 or the GLM-2 from Custom Brackets.
