You Pay: $195.90

The Wimberley F-9 Flash Bracket consists of modules M3 & M9. It attaches directly to the swinging arm of the Wimberley Head Version II. Since it is attached to the head and not your lens, it remains in place when you switch lenses.

The bracket folds flat for easy storage. When folded flat, the bracket can also be used with side-mount gimbal heads such as the Wimberley Sidekick.

Note! This bracket will not work with the old version of the Wimberley Head, which is compatible with the F-4 Bracket.

Elevates the mounting point for the flash 5.5" above the center axis of the lens.
Flash Mounting 1/4"-20 screw
Working Height 5.5" (from center axis of lens)
Length 8.75" (flded flat)
7.75" (if Tilt Arm is in it's lowest position)

      First of all I use it with a SB900 with the SC-29 cable together with Nikon 500mm f4. Works superb.

      However, to extend the usability of the F-9 bracket, I drilled a hole in the upper arm in order to attach a standard hot shoe for my remote control receiver (since the flash shoe on the camera is occupied by SC-29).

      Moreover, since I have a Kirk L-plate on my camera, I can attach the Wimberley F-9 on the L-plate (both under the camera and on the side of the camera) as well. This is useful when I do portraits or macro (on a Kirk-head on a tripod) using the Wireless Speedlight Commander Unit SU-800 attach to the SC-29 cable together with the remote control receiver. In this way it is easy to use the Right Angle Viewfinder DR-6 since the SU800 is not in the way for my head anymore.

      Needs modification for adjustability...

      The bracket is of superior quality to be sure. When using a Better Beamer on my Canon 580EX II, the flash body sags a bit but enough to need adjustment to get it back to level. Unfortunately, Wimberley choose to use cheap phillips screws to align the base with the arm. In order adjust the tilt of the flash, you need to unscrew either phillips screw, then re-tighten the base. They should have put small thumbscrews or a completely different design so that it is adjustable in the field without a phillips screwdriver.

      For as much as they're charging for this, I would have expected much more. It's incredibly overpriced for basically a couple pieces of aluminum.

      A little pricey for what it is.

      Comments about Wimberley F-9 Flash Bracket for Head Version II:

      Well made and light weight. At first I planned to make something myself because it is pricey for what it is, but I would have had to spend more than half of what this costs on material and would at least still had to buy a clamp and it wouldn't be as nice as this so I bought it.

        used with my better beamer for hummingbird photography; nice modular design allows for addition of extra segment for additional height, etc. Well designed and constructed. Worked perfectly with my Wimberley II head.

              I originally used a bracket to attach Flash and Better Beamer to the camera body itself, the weight would sometimes cause the camera body to come undone from either the lens or the extender. This simple, and very effective adaptor attaches directly to the Wimberley Gimbal head very securely and is adaptable for height.Definitively worth the money.

                Comments about Wimberley F-9 Flash Bracket for Head Version II:

                There's no way to adjust the tilt of this without a phillips head screwdriver. When you load it up with a flash and better beamer, the flash head tilts down a little. Not enough to be overcome by tilting the flash up enough for the first click adjustment on the flash itself, but enough to tilt the coverage out of the picture when using an 800mm.

                They should have used thumbscrew or some other way of adjusting it properly in the field.

                Also, it's way too expensive for what it is.

                                    What can I say, it places the flash above the axis of the lens and since I use my Wimberley WH-200 backwards it doesn't get in the way. Easy pack and much more compact than the RRS flash bracket I previously tried to use.

                                      Comments about Wimberley F-9 Flash Bracket for Head Version II:

                                      First of all I use it with a SB900 with the SC-29 cable together with Nikon 500mm f4. Works superb.

                                      However, to extend the usability of the F-9 bracket, I drilled a hole in the upper arm in order to attach a standard hot shoe for my remote control receiver (since the flash shoe on the camera is occupied by SC-29).

                                      Moreover, since I have a Kirk L-plate on my camera, I can attach the Wimberley F-9 on the L-plate (both under the camera and on the side of the camera) as well. This is useful when I do portraits or macro (on a Kirk-head on a tripod) using the Wireless Speedlight Commander Unit SU-800 attach to the SC-29 cable together with the remote control receiver. In this way it is easy to use the Right Angle Viewfinder DR-6 since the SU800 is not in the way for my head anymore.

                                        Perfect in the way it attaches, allows for quick installation. Great improvement over attaching to lens plate.

                                            This flash bracket attaches to the vertical swinging arm of the Wimberley Head version II via the Arca-Swiss style dovetail on the arm. The bracket uses a quick-release attachment so its fast and easy to install. Installation allows attachment of an off camera shoe cord (purchased separately) and your flash. The shoe cord is then attached to your camera on the Wimberley Head. Since the bracket is attached to the head and not directly to your camera or lens, it and your flash, remain in place above your camera and independent from your lens whether the camera is in the landscape or portrait mode. Fast, easy, solid, well-designed, and folds flat for storage.
