The Wimberley Head is a special, gimbal-type tripod head for large telephoto lenses from 300mm or bigger. The idea is to have the axes of rotation of the head running through the center of gravity of the lens-camera system, so it can be handled without effort in a fluid movement. The head incorporates an elevated tilt mechanism and an adjustable platform to perfectly balance your lens. Thus, even the heaviest lens becomes practically weightless - it could be moved around with a single finger, and when you let go of it, it will remain in the same position where you have stopped. Lobed, rubber-coated knobs for adjusting friction in horizontal and vertical motion are on the same side of the head, so they can be comfortably operated with one hand, and even with thick gloves.

The head is manufactured from cast aluminium and stainless steel, it is very sturdy and comparatively light. The panning base has absolutely no play, even when the head is unlocked.

Specifications:

  • Weight (lbs): 3.15
  • Max. Dimensions: Height: 9.28" Width: 3.50" Depth: 9.87"

Hallo Zsusammen,
ich habe mir den Wimberley Head II vor ca. einen halben Jahr gekauft, und ich bin Total überzeugt von diesem Produkt, er hat sich für mich in der Praxis zu 100% bewehrt!!!
Gerade in der Wildlife Fotografie würde ich ihn vor jedem Videoneiger vorziehen, er stört nicht, er ist sehr einfach in der Handhabung (Bedienung), bleibt beim Fixieren eines Motivs punktgenau stehen.
Gerade auch bei schwerem Gerät (600mm Tele usw) habe ich Top Erfahrungen gemacht.
Dieses Produkt kann ich nur weiter empfehlen, und auch den Preis finde ich absolut OK!!!!!

Sehr wertiger Kopf, Einhandbedienung, kein Lagerspiel (selbst bei hohen Lasten) und butterweicher Lauf!
