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). Some lenses may require the use of a replacement foot to balance properly on a gimbal head due to the fact they have taller than normal stock feet. Please check the lens plate recommendation chart for requirements. The following lenses require special consideration:
The Wimberley Head Version II will fit virtually any tripod, monopod, window or ground pod with a 2 inch (5 centimeter) or larger flat mounting platform and 3/8”-16 mounting stud. The bottom mounting surface of the panning spool is approximately 1.94 in (5 cm) in diameter. If your tripod has a ¼”-20 mounting stud, you can purchase our 3/8”-1/4” brass reducer bushing (part BS-100) to insert into the mounting hole of the Wimberley Head, and this will allow you to mount the Head to your tripod. For large lenses (300mm f/2.8 or bigger), the Wimberley Head is ideally mated with the Gitzo line of professional Systematic tripods for maximum stability (see our tripod recommendations). Tripods with center columns are not recommended because they tend to introduce additional flex into the system, which can compromise image quality especially at longer focal lengths. If your tripod has a center column, we recommend that you do not extend the column when using the Wimberley Head.
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.

Flash Bracket Compatibility
The F-9 Wimberley Head Version II Flash bracket ($196) is made specifically for the new head. It attaches directly to the Arca-Swiss Style dovetail on the arm of the Wimberley Head Version II.
If you already have the F-4 Bracket for the Old-Style Wimberley Head, you have 2 options:
Why does my old bracket not fit?The dovetail on the swinging arm of the new Wimberley Head, which allows you to adjust the platform up and down, has the Arca-Swiss geometry. This was not true of the old version of the head.
