Wimberley Head - Version II
Manufacturer code: WH200 | Our code: 118005
Wimberley Head - Version II. The Wimberley 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 Wimberley Head has become the industry standard for serious nature photographers.
The Wimberley Head Version II offers the same stiffness, capacity, and fluid movement of the old version in a more compact and lightweight package (it is one pound lighter and about two inches shorter).
The head's redesigned panning base has zero play, and the pan locking knob has been moved to the side of the head, thus allowing the user to easily operate both knobs with the same hand. New lobed "soft-touch" knobs provide a more comfortable grip and perform better when using gloves.
In addition to the above improvements, Wimberley has examined all aspects of the head, tightening tolerances, improving friction materials and so forth.
The goal has been to make this head functionally and aesthetically better in every way than the old version and competing products.
The Wimberley Head Version II will adjust to fit virtually any telephoto lens with a rotation collar. It is ideally suited for large lenses (300mm f/2.8 or bigger).
The following lenses require special consideration:
- Lens: Nikon 600mm f/4 AF-S version I - Special Requirement: AP-652 Replacement Foot
- Lens: Nikon 600mm f/4 AF-S v II - 400mm f/2.8 AF-S v I - 400mm f/2.8 AF-S v II - Special Requirement: AP-452 Replacement Foot
The Wimberley Head Version II has a built-in, Arca-Swiss style quick-release clamp; It is not available in a non-quick-release model. In order to use the head, your lens must be equipped with an Arca-Swiss style lens plate. We sell a comprehensive line of such plates that have unique advantages over competing products.
