Wimberley C-30 Quick Release Clamp for Wimberley

B&H # WIQRCC30 Mfr # C-30
In Stock
Free Expedited Shipping
You Pay: $99.90

A 104mm-long Arca-style quick release clamp that can be added onto any tripod head with a 3/8"-16 screw, the Wimberley C30 quick release adapter accepts Arca-type quick release plates from Acratech, Arca-Swiss, Foba, Graf, Novoflex, NPC & (of course) Wimberley.  From head-to-toe it is a superior, exceptionally engineered design which will yield many years of reliable, heavy-duty use.  The C30 is long enough to hold any lens/camera combination like a vise grip.

The C-30 is for those who wish to retrofit an old-style Wimberley Head, replace a damaged C-30, or have an application that requires a longer clamp. Please click here for a lens-plate reference chart to find the recommended plate for your particular lens.

Note! The C-30 clamp was made specifically for the old-style Wimberley Head (WH-100 & WH-101). The Wimberley Head Version II (WH-200) has a built-in quick-release clamp, eliminating the need for the C-30. The added length of the C-30 (1.6" longer than the C-10) provides little added functionality for most applications. Wimberley recommends using the lighter, less expensive C-10 clamp.

Superstrong 7075 T6 Aluminum
Wimberley uses 7075 T6 series aluminum for the C30 clamp, which is a standard within the aviation industry and amongst the world's strongest aluminum alloys.  It is heavily alloyed with zinc to be incredibly strong and durable, with superior tensile and yield strength thresholds than 6061 T6 aluminum alloy.
Accepts all Arca-Type Quick Release Plates
The Wimberley C30 clamp will securely hold any manufacturer's Arca-type quick release plate, available from a host of manufacturers.
Captive Locking Screw
The clamp's locking knob cannot accidentally fall off from being unscrewed too far.
Built for Tough Use
Wimberley's C30 clamp has a tongue-in-pocket design which protects internal parts from dust and grit.  The spring-loaded moving jaw communicates brilliantly to your hand that the camera's quick release plate and the jaw are in contact.
Grooves Allow Extended Motion
Shallow channels extending from the C30 clamp's sides stop just short of the central tapped hole, allowing great fore-aft adjustment when using the safety stops on Wimberley's (and others) quick release plates.
Dimensions 4.2 x 0.9 x 3.3" (107 x 24 x 84 mm) WxHxD

        Comments about C-30 Quick Release Clamp for Wimberley:

        I was able to modify the bottom and screw hole of this clamp to convert the Manfrotto 484 ball head from the CR2 quick release system to the Wimberley QR using Acra Swiss mounting plates from Wimberley. I just used normal hobbyist tools and the result is sturdy and looks nice.

        Now I have a monopod which easily accepts my camera bodies and lenses set up with Wimberley mounting plates.

        Quality and fit of the Wimberley clamp is first class all around.

          I have these clamps on all of my tripods. Then, with a Wimberly plate on the bottom of my various style heads and another clamp on top, I can use whatever head I want on them. Cameras are a snap to balance.

            Comments about C-30 Quick Release Clamp for Wimberley:

            The C-30 clamp sits on top os a Manfroto 300N (3414) Panoramic Head head, with a Manfroto 338 QTVR Leveling Base underneath. The arrangement is great. I also use a Benro A-2691 Travel Angel Alum. Tripod equivalent (My Benro model was replaced with this P/N) The Tripod works great, the B-1 head is in the closet. I'm happy with the overall tripod / leveling head / panorama head / Wimbelton C-30 clamp assembly. The whole assembly is good for 26+ pounds of Canon EOS-50D camera with all Canon attachments and big Canon 300mm f2.8 lens and Jobu gimbel head.
