Gimbal Head Adapter Plate for Wimberley Head Clamp
This gimbal head adapter mounts to your Wimberley® Head WH-101 or WH-200 clamp and attaches to your camera plate, allowing you to shoot with your camera mounted to the Wimberley® Head instead of the lens. The Gimbal Head Adapter for Wimberley® Head Clamp is the perfect solution for hiking photographers focusing on wildlife photography who might take the occasional scenic and wish to leave the ballhead behind. This bi-directional adapter plate is great to have just in case.
How to Use
Movement with the gimbal head adapter plate is limited; horizontally, you can pan and swing the camera up and down. Side-to-side movement is limited to your leveling base and/or adjustment of tripod legs.
To set up vertically, remove the camera from the horizontal setup and turn so the lens is pointed over the top Wimberley® Head knob. There’s limited movement; panning is possible, some side-to-side movement is possible, but up-and-down is limited to your leveling base and/or adjustment of tripod legs.
Visual Echoes highly recommends the use of an L-bracket on the camera body for an easier transition between horizontal and vertical.
