Wimberley Module 7: Flash Flipper
The Flash Flipper module is for a special application useful for handheld shots with a short lens which uses the telephoto bracket setup of Combo 1 attached to the camera plate. In order to do this, you must have an Arca-Swiss style quick release plate on your camera body oriented parallel to the axis of your lens (90 degrees from the typical orientation of a camera body plate). You can achieve this by attaching the Wimberley Perpendicular Plate to your camera body plate.
Ordinarily flash brackets are attached to a lens plate on a rotating lens collar, so when the lens rotates the brackets stay in place. Because this is not the case with a setup on the camera plate, the Flash Flipper is available to maintain a flash position over the camera, which can be important in casting flash shadows more downward instead of directly behind the subject.
The components in the Wimberley flash bracket system are sturdy, lightweight fully intercompatible, and require no tools to attach, adjust, or disassemble. Each features an Arca-Swiss style quick-release clamp: easy to affix, adjust and remove. Connections are solid and don't twist, creep, or slip apart. Parts can be disassembled for easy storage. The Wimberley brackets work best with Wimberley quick-release plates, but often work with other Arca-Swiss style plates. Aluminum components are milled from solid 6061 T6 aluminum and are black anodized, fasteners are stainless steel, and knobs are captive.
Includes a 5 year warranty.
