About this Guide

The charts above list the lens plate and additional hardware (if necessary) that we recommend for some of the most common collared lenses. If your lens is not on the list, please contact us and we will be happy to help you find the proper plate. A lens not listed has not been tested.

We try to suggest a plate that will work for all scenarios, but this is not always possible. The balance point of the lens/camera combination is affected by the weight of the camera body and other accessories attached to the lens and each set up is different.

The plates that we recommend should be long enough to: 1.) properly balance the lens when using our gimbal heads, and 2.) allow room to attach a flash bracket to the plate. In some cases, this means that the plate is significantly longer than the foot of the lens.

NOTE: Other manufacturers' plates may not be long enough or dimensionally compatible in order to properly balance your setup. Check the length of the recommended plate in our charts for comparison. If your particular setup does not balance properly using our suggested plate, please contact us right away so that we can help you find a more suitable plate.

Key

*------------------SW-100 Extra Screw ($1.00)
Wimberley lens plates attach with 1/4"-20 screws specially machined to fit the center slots in the plates. If your lens requires more screws than are included, you may purchase extras. Click here for the number of screws included with each plate. (Note: not compatible with the P-5 Camera Body Plate.)


**---------------Sidekick Shifter & Spacers
Some larger lenses require the Sidekick to be shifted further out from the ball head in order to move the lens closer to the center of gravity. Your lens may require the use of a shifter to balance it perfectly on the Sidekick.

AP-900 ($50) Sidekick Shifter Block = 0.75" offset
AP-901 ($65) Sidekick Shifter + one (1/4") spacer plate = 1.0" offset
AP-902 ($80) Sidekick Shifter + two spacer plates = 1.25" offset
AP-903 ($95) Sidekick Shifter + three spacer plates = 1.50" offset


***-----------------BS-100 Brass Reducer Bushing ($3.00)

Lens feet with 3/8" mounting holes require insertion of a 3/8" to 1/4" reducer bushing in order to fasten our plates to these holes. Some lens plates include one complimentary bushing.
