Lens Replacement Feet

These custom low-profile replacement feet replace the factory foot on the rotation collar of your lens. These feet also serve as the Arca-Swiss style quick-release plate eliminating the bulk and complexity of an additional plate. A Wimberley lens foot also improves lens handling on a conventional tripod head, such as a ball head, and also makes it easier to pack.

Using our replacement foot on your large lens decreases the overall height of the lens, lowering the center of gravity so that it is easier to achieve proper balance when used on a gimbal head such as the Wimberley Head. When using the Sidekick or Sidemount Wimberley Head, replacement feet are useful and sometimes required for optimal gimbal head performance.

The replacement feet are precision machined to slide right into an Arca-Swiss style quick-release clamp. They also have 1/4" and 3/8" tapped holes for mounting to non-quick-release tripod heads and monopods. All replacement feet feature the same dual safety stops and flash bracket compatibility as our lens plates.

All tools needed to replace your existing lens foot are included.

* To order extra or replacement screws, visit the Hardware Section (found on the Find a Product page)

* Arca Swiss profile is not compatible with most Manfrotto or Gitzo Clamps.

The AP-554 is an alternative to our AP-553 foot. It has the advantage of greater clearance between the body of the lens and the foot, making it easier to use the foot as a handle for your lens. It is also longer, which facilitates balancing of lenses while using light-weight camera bodies as well as the heavier pro and prosumer Nikon camera bodies, even when using teleconverters.

For those who want a less expensive and more compact alternative, we are still selling the AP-553. Be sure to check the chart to make sure your lens/camera combination is compatible.

Lens Compatible Bodies Incompatible Bodies
