Wimberley WH-200 Tripod Head Ver.II

The Wimberley WH-200 Tripod Head Ver.II is a specialized tripod head for telephoto lenses. Its gimbal-type design allows you to rotate your lens around its centre of gravity and thus easily manipulate very large lenses. Since its introduction in 1991, the Wimberley Head has become the industry standard for serious nature photographers.

Design Improvements for Version II
The Wimberley Head Version II offers the same stiffness, capacity, and fluid movement of the old version in a more compact and lightweight package (it is 450gm lighter and about 5cm shorter). The head’s redesigned panning base has zero play, and the pan locking knob has been moved to the side of the head, thus allowing the user to easily operate both knobs with the same hand. New lobed "soft-touch" knobs provide a more comfortable grip and perform better when using gloves.

In addition to the above improvements, Wimberley has examined all aspects of the head, tightening tolerances, improving friction materials and so forth. Our goal has been to make this head functionally and aesthetically better in every way than the old version and competing products.

Is supplied without lens plate for under the lens. Inquire about the correct plate for your lens.

Althepal - 6/1/2017 When you've tried several alternatives, including cheaper gimbal heads, you will truly appreciate the Wimberley.
Better results speak for themselves, and my pictures are sharper since I acquired this gimbal.
If you're looking around for the best camera/long lens support, buy this and you won't regret it...
Good quality product

Richard - 5/9/2016 If you have a 500mm+ prime then this is the tripod head for the job. It's fairly heavy but once set up it turns that monster lens and camera rig into something amazingly light and yet rock solid.
Should have bought long ago.

john s - 12/15/2015 Exceeded my expectations. Combined with a Gitzo tripod and Canon 500mm I can now get pin sharp images of wildlife. Expensive but still much cheaper than any other UK retailer.

Bri - 9/30/2015 High cost but very well manufactured and a very well thought out design, does the job perfectly - regret not having bought this first rather than a ballhead. Highly recommended if you have the money.
So glad I bought it!

Abbie - 2/10/2015 I debated whether to take the plunge and buy a Wimberley head after purchasing the Canon 200-400 1.4x F4 L lens. I struggled for 12 months with Manfrotto fluid heads (as I use my tripod head for photo, video and digiscoping) that on paper will manage the weight, but reality was different.
Wow! what a difference this Wimberley tripod head has made. I now have much more 'keeper' video and images. The quality is excellent and ergonomically easy to use. You get what you pay for! Amazing and highly recommended.
