Wimberley PP-200 overview

  • 1Description

The Plamp II from Wimberly is a 23" articulating Loc-Line arm designed to help photographers position objects and tools during a shoot. This arm has a load capacity of about 8 ounces, depending on the positioning of the arm, and will easily clamp to tripod legs or similar objects 0.9 to 1.4" in diameter. This holds it securely while the thumbscrew clip holds the object. The nylon clip is extremely versatile with foam jaw inserts for delicate materials, a holding notch that fits the outer rim of diffusers and reflectors, an arched recess that allows for the gripping of round objects. The thumbscrew activated clip is also very strong and precise as well as being able to open up to 1". Additionally, the Plamp II is lightweight at 7.9 ounces.

Loc-Line jointed segments allow you to adjust the length of your Plamp, even allowing the use of optional extensions
Tripod clamp has an adjustable spring tension for your preference
Large diameter segments allow for the joining of multiple Plamps in a series
It will hold 12" reflectors and diffusers in any position, 20" reflectors in a vertical position or slight cantilever, and for anything larger than 20" two Plamps are recommended

    Wimberley PP-200 reviews

    The Plamp II is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 75.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wimberley Plamp II This is the only commercially available device I found for the express purpose of holding a flower or leaf steady. In addition to holding the subject steady, it can also reposition the subject for a better camera angle. The Plamp can also be used for any other third hand need, such as holding a reflector. Though this device sounds like a great idea, in practice it has limitations. For one, even if the stem is kept still, the flower petals will still move if it's breezy enough. Even the Plamp's articulating arm is sensitive to a strong breeze. There is also an important precaution to take when using this device. You need to use either a remote shutter release or your camera's self-timer. Wimberley warns that even mirror slap can vibrate the articulating arm. I thought that was an exaggeration at first, but for certain the slightest touch to the camera does set off vibrations through the Plamp (unless the Plamp is clamped to something other than your tripod).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much more Sturdy and Solid Much more Sturdy and Solid than the picture shows. The picture doesn't do the Plamp justice. I was worried the the Plamp wouldn't be strong enough to hold a 12 Diffucer up over my tripod while shooting on bright sunny days. So I bought 2 plamps. Well I was surprised at how big the plamps are and how strong and durable they are as well. I can think of lots of uses for having 2 plamps. I was concerned at the price, but now aving seen them up front and personal they are worth every penny.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Invaluable for plant macro video Well designed and quite versatile. Steady small flowers/buds in a breeze wonderfully. Enables stack focus, mandatory for video! It can support the Ikan Micro Spot. Every subject is different, so is the location. Plamp works for 80-90% of the time for me, which is a huge percentage. Always carry two Plamps. Not perfect for everything, I still have to carry heavier/longer gear for some rigs. Don't for get it when rigged in a tree somewhere holding a distant branch,.. it can happen!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wimberley Plamp II This is the New and improved version of Wimberley's original Plamp devise. The original one's worked pretty darn good! But the new version with a redesigned holding clamp has so far worked out very well for me. With it being a little more versatile, and having nice holding power, and adjustability. Works great for holding both small and delicate stems, plants, flowers, etc. out of the way, or in place for macro/micro photography when using a tripod. It can also be used for holding smaller reflector's while in the field. Another excellent product from Wimberley.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for what it does I use The Plamp II to stabilize plants, or to hold printed backgrounds behind plants, while shooting macros. Clever design: The larger (black) clamp attaches securely with a good strong spring and the smaller (gray) clamp uses a screw/rubber band combination to precisely secure a plant without damaging it. The gray clamp also contains a notched foam rubber liner to guard against damaging a stem. Kinda pricey, but my homemade clamps don't work nearly as well.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good support, clamping needs improvement I bought this to use by mounting to light stands and use for flags. The spring clamp side seems to be meant for use on much thicker stands ( I have Impact light stands ). It won't hold up and falls to the nearest joint. I was thinking about using the clamp meant for the flag side to mount to he stand even though that's the wrong way, we'll see how it goes. The joints and holding strength are a positive factor however. The joints allow great versatility, and the holding power is pretty good. If you have a lot of thick heavy duty stands maybe this will be good for you. You also have to be ready to screw and unscrew every time you want to adjust the flag or diffuser. If these things won't bother you it looks like a great product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would certainly buy this product. The Plamp has turned out to be an excellent device in macro photographer. It holds up flowers, plants and many other photographic items and allows you to position them to your liking with with flex rod. I find many uses for this item including holding flashes, reflectors, and lights. In my efforts to produce good images it has become indispensable. Highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have for Macro/Close-up work The Plamp II by Wimberley is an asset that all photographers that shoot Macro and Close- photography should have. I never thought having one of these was necessary until one was given to me as a gift and now I will never be without one again. I can now use it to set-up shots of wild flowers without damaging the flower and its use in shooting cut flowers is only limited to your imagination. These unique clamp works best if you buy the extension they make for it. Is there anything better than owning one of these, yes owning two.
