The Wimberley WH-200 Wimberley Head Version II is a gimbal-type tripod head that incorporates an elevated tilt mechanism and adjustable platform to make the camera/lens' center of gravity and tilt axis of the head be perfectly aligned.

Things once thought of as impossible with a ballhead are nothing short of mundane with a Wimberley, because a weightless camera/lens combo (even a 600mm f/4 w/ large body) can literally be controlled with one finger. Point the rig where you want and take the hand away, and it stays exactly where you put it.

The Version II head is more compact and lightweight, features a redesigned panning base, "soft-touch" knobs, and includes a built-in Arca-type quick release base.

Please see lens-plate reference chart to find the recommended plate for your particular lens.


  • The built-in industry-standard Arca-Swiss style quick release clamp makes it compatible with the many different plates available from Arca-Swiss, Acratech , Kirk, Wimberly, Really Right Stuff, Foba, etc.
  • The head does not have separate controls for tension and locking, but the locking controls deliver smooth resistance with diminished "stick-slip".
  • The overall height of the head is 9.25", with the lens platform adjuststable from 3.5" to 7.1". The centerline of a balanced lens will be approximately 8.4" above the bottom of the head.
  • Distance from the mounting surface of the platform to the tilt axis: Adjustable from 1.1" to 4.8".
  • The head's redesigned panning base has zero play and the pan locking knob has been moved to the side of the head; this allows the user to easily operate both knobs with the same hand.
  • Lobed "soft-touch" knobs provide a more comfortable grip and perform better when using gloves.
  • Powder coated/anodized finish
  • Made in the U.S.A.

Wimberley P-50 overview

Wimberley's quick release plates for lenses are made of silky-smooth anodized aluminum. They fit all the Arca-type quick release adapters, made by many different companies such as Arca-Swiss, Foba, Graf/Studioball, Gitzo, NPC and of course Wimberley. The plate has drilled holes to accept flash brackets from Wimberley, Kirk & Really Right Stuff.

Note: The following lenses have 3/8" threads, and require a "reducing bushing" (#ST651) to fit the plate:



Canon 400mm f/2.8 IS


Canon 600mm f/4 IS


Canon 600mm f/4


Minolta 600mm f/4


Dual Safety Stops
The safety stops at the front & back of the Wimberley P50 plate prohibit your lens from accidentally slipping out of the quick release adapter(easily removed with supplied hex wrench if desired).
Double-Dovetail Cross-Section
The Wimberley double-dovetail design allows attachment of their Shape Shifter flash bracket system to the upper or lower surface of the P50 plate.
