Wimberley Sidekick Reference Chart

Note 1: Some users find it awkward and scarry to use large lenses (400 f/2.8 and 600 f/4) on the Sidekick because of the sidemount design. However, the Sidekick will hold the weight of these lenses provided you follow the guidelines below for your lens.

Note 2: Sidekick compatibility is determined assuming the customer has an Arca-Swiss B-1, Foba or other heavy-duty large ball head.

Note 3: Small lenses combined with heavy camera bodies may have interference problems that limit their range of motion when using the Sidekick. This is generally not a problem, and methods to alleviate this problem are covered in the instructions for the Sidekick.
