The "Arca-Swiss Style" Quick-Release Geometry
The "Arca-Swiss Style" Quick-Release Geometry refers to the open-cavity dovetail quick-release system developed decades ago by Arca-Swiss for use with their Monoball ball heads and large format cameras. After the extreme popularity of the Arca-Swiss B-1 ball head in the 1990s, other companies began manufacturing custom camera-body and lens plates using this geometry. Since then, this geometry has become the industry standard for high-end tripod heads (particularly in the nature photography industry). The figure below shows the basic dimensions of the dovetail used in this system:
The Wimberley Head Version II and the Wimberley Sidekick use this quick-release system, so any lens that you wish to connect to our heads must be equipped with an Arca-Swiss style lens plate. Click here to view our line of such plates.
Manufacturers that use the Arca-Swiss Style Quick-Release Geometry include:Acratech
Giottos (only on their most recent line of ball heads & plates)
Novoflex (only on some of their products)

FA-11 Flash Bracket Adapter ($19.00) What's Included
Since the Nikon SC-29 Cord is dimensionally larger than previous Nikon flash cables, the FA-11 adapter allows you to attach the bottom of the Nikon SC-29 cord to the M-3 module, making it compatible with any Wimberley telephoto bracket.
It is also compatible with older style pre-SNAP QR Really Right Stuff, and pre-QR-FP Kirk Flash brackets.
Once the FA-11 is installed, you can attach your SC-29 cord to our flash brackets just as you would with older Nikon cords. You can leave the FA-11 permanently attached to the SC-29 cord.
F-3 Telephoto/Macro Kit ($299.00)
This kit consists of the F-1 Telephoto Bracket and M-4 Macro Arm. This versatile set of components allows you to form either the F-1 Telephoto Bracket or the F-2 Macro Bracket. Note: You cannot form both brackets at the same time.
You can also also attach the M-4 Macro Arm to the top of the telephoto bracket for added reach and positionability.
Note: The Nikon SC-29 Cord is not compatible with this bracket unless you use the FA-11 Adapter.
