Questions? Ask our experts:

The Wimberly F-2 Macro Bracket consists of the M-1 and M-4 double ball and socket links that lock positively and offer a great range of flash positions as well as creating an extremely adjustable macro bracket for both collared and non-collared lenses. It's perfect for the minimalist to use with everything from a squat 50mm macro lens to a 600mm super-telephoto. As with all of the Shape Shifter components, and unlike other manufacturer's products, parts are captive to prevent detachment from accidentally unscrewing them too far while in the field. Total weight of this combination is 0.88 lb.

The Wimberley system of flash bracket components are modular, versatile and easily stowed in a small space when not in use. Known as the Shape-Shifter Modular Flash Bracket System, the components connect without tools. None of the combinations slip, twist or creep- even during intense action. They're integrated with the venerable Arca-Swiss type quick release system, now dominant as the industry standard for macro and telephoto shooting.

      Comments about Wimberley F-2 Macro Bracket:

      Wonderful, flexible design. Very sturdy; locks tightly and retains position. I am using this for closeup photos of insects (not truly macro). Using with Canon EOS and Speedlite, connected to the body and tripod with a Kirk Arca-type plate. Very good results right out of the box.

        Comments about Wimberley F-2 Macro Bracket:

        I was reluctant to spend the money but it has been well worth it. The flash bracket easily adjusts to almost any angle. The clamps hold solid enough that you can actually use it like a handle. If you are looking to get a flash near the front of your macro lens you can't go wrong.

                I'm using it for macro photography, and I love it. I like the flexibility and the robust build quality. A little pricey however, but I guess it's worth it. A great design and easy to use. This system is based on the swiss-arca plate. A mounting solution compatible for RC2 would be a great addition for the system...

                      Comments about Wimberley F-2 Macro Bracket:

                      I have always struggled getting my flash positioned for macro photography. This flash bracket has solved that problem. It is extremely versatile, it clamps securely to the tripod collar RRS plate. If using with a lens without a collar, I clamp it to a nodal slide attached to the camera. Works well on or off a tripod. I am thinking about buying another to position two flashes.

                              Very well made bracket. Works great attached to L-bracket on camera. Good for macro, portrait, and telephoto wildlife work using better beamer. Folds up very compact for storage. Very stable even with large speedlite and modifier like a small softbox. Offers nearly unlimited positioning options.

                              Would rate it 5 stars if it were not overpriced for what it is. This should cost under $100, but it seemed to be the only thing that would do what I needed from a bracket...

                                    I bought these to use with my Canon MT-24 Macro Twin Lite. While the MT-24 mounts on the lens, its mount does not give near the flexability you get from mounting the MT-24 flash heads on a couple of the Wimberley Combo 2 brackets. With a couple of these brackets you can put your light anywhere you can imagine.

                                    These things are the ultimate in flexible and rock steady.

                                    There are no Cons that I have found.

                                    I bought 2 of these with the M8 plate. To be honest I wasn't impressed with the finishing initially. With this kind of price I'm actually expecting very good finishing as well as performance. [...]

                                      Use it to off-set one of the canon Mt-24 ex flash and also to support the 580ex flash.
                                      Build quality is superb.
                                      Very sturdy Flash bracket and able to support large flashes and its mount is able to mount on any arca swiss standard plate which increases the flexibility of the f-2 bracket.
                                      Only set back is the arm tightening knobs which control two ball join sections,
                                      will be easier to control if the design permits one knob to a ball join.

                                          I have used numerous Macro Flash Brackets and the F2 is the most versital and solid/sturdy of them even over my homemade ones.

                                              I use the Wimberley Macro Combo Flash Bracket for macro photography of insects in conjunction with a full size flash unit plus a diffuser mounted on the front. This bracket can be easily adjusted to almost any position you can think of and then by quickly tightening the two twist knobs, it locks down rock solid. Very simple, very solid!
