B&H # WITHQRQ MFR # WH-200
Things once thought of as impossible with a ball head are nothing short of mundane with a Wimberley, because a weightless camera/lens combo (even a 600mm f/4 w/ large body) can literally be controlled with one finger. Point the rig where you want and take the hand away, and it stays exactly where you put it.
The Version II head is more compact and lightweight, features a redesigned panning base, "soft-touch" knobs, and includes a built-in Arca-type compatible quick release base. An Arca-type quick release plate is required and is available separately.
"Love it...Love it....Simple setup - even without directions...I use the Wimberley Head for a Nikon 600mm and a 400 2.8 lens, This gimbal head is the bomb, you can follow anything anywhere I do alot of California Condor photography with this Wimberley head and you just cant get any better than this, my shots come out tack sharp, When you have your setup balanced it just does not get any easier than using the WH 200 Tripod Head II with Quick Release base by Wimberley, A sure MUST for big lens users"See more

The weight capacity is 15.4 lb and counterbalance supports 8.8 lb. The balance plate's 3.27" range allows you to correct for uneven payloads due to matte boxes or DSLR rig configurations.
The bridging technology ensures that the pan friction control is intuitive and easy to set, but also protected against knocks. There are independent locks for pan and tilt, and drag for both is selectable in a continuous range from zero to the max level. This allows you to operate the head in a confident, smooth manner using the included pan bar.
