Questions? Ask our experts:

When using some large lenses in combination with the Sidekick (such as a 400mm f/2.8 or 600mm f/4), it is necessary to use the Sidekick Shifter to adjust the lens position so that the center of the lens is once again over the rotation axis of the tripod. This provides better support and vibration reduction.

        Comments about Wimberley Sidekick Shifter Plate:

        Had a little trouble receiving the item-it was shipped by B & H but got lost in transit. The folks at B & H were great. They had me file a lost item claim but shipped a new one right away. I bought this item to use with my Gitzo systematic 3531, Markins Ball Head, and Wimberley Sidekick. When using my Nikkor 600mm lens, the lens is off center. The shifter plate places the lens right over the center of the tripod head. The only negative is that it may have to be removed when using other lenses, depending on how far away from the lens the lens foot is.
