When speed and fluid movement matter, the MH-100 MonoGimbal Head for Monopods by Wimberly brings the functions of a full-sized gimbal head to your monopod with a fraction of the weight and bulk. Its new and unique design allow you to balance the center of gravity of your lens over your tripod, preventing lens flop while maintaining the full range of movement. The solid aluminum and steel construction of the MH-100 means that its only weight limitation is the strength of the monopod. It can be mounted directly on a 3/8"-16 threaded stud or can also mount securely on an Arca-Swiss style quick release receiver clamp.

When speed and fluid movement matter, the MH-100 MonoGimbal Head for Monopods by Wimberly brings the functions of a full-sized gimbal head to your monopod with a fraction of the weight and bulk. Its new and unique design allow you to balance the center of gravity of your lens over your tripod, preventing lens flop while maintaining the full range of movement. The solid aluminum and steel construction of the MH-100 means that its only weight limitation is the strength of the monopod. It can be mounted directly on a 3/8"-16 threaded stud or can also mount securely on an Arca-Swiss style quick release receiver clamp.

The MH-100 is designed to provide years of maintenance-free use and is built with pride in the USA.

Compact, Portable Gimbal Solution

The compact, self-contained design centers the combined camera and lens weight over the monopod while allowing fluid movement

Large Tilt Knob with Tension Adjustment

The tilt knob can be tightened to lock the lens in position, or loosened slightly to allow movement with enough resistance to prevent lens flop. The large knurled knob is easily handled, even while wearing gloves

Compatibility

Compatible with Arca-Swiss style quick release plates, long lens plates, or lens replacement feet.

Installation Versatility

Mount directly to a tripod's 3/8"-16 threaded stud, or the dovetail-shaped base can be clamped directly into an Arca-Swiss style quick release receiver clamp. Included removable safety stop screws prevent accidental release from the receiver.

Requirements and Precautions

  • The lens must have a rotation collar in order to quickly switch from vertical to horizontal
  • The lens must have an Arca-Swiss style quick release plate or lens replacement foot
  • For heavy-duty monopod use only. Monopod load capacity rating must be three times the weight of the combined camera and lens set
  • Use of a reducer bushing to mount the ML-100 to a monopod with a 1/4"-20 threaded stud is not recommended

    What's the largest size diameter base of the monopod that can be used with this monogimbal without interfering with the up and down rotational movement of the attachment head?
    Asked by: Creston
    Appears to be 3" as measured! I doubt 3 1/4" would allow clearance, 3 1/8" might.

    The rotating head will clear a circular monopod top plate that's less than 3.25" (82 mm) in diameter.

    Need an Arca Swiss Tripod Collar for my Sigma 150-600mm Contemporary lens. Do you have this in stock? Replaces Sigma TS-71 collar mount.
    Asked by: Ron
    I bought an ishoot CNC machined lens collar with arca foot for the Sigma 85mm that has performed well. I believe there is a collar the the Sigma 150-600mm that you might want to evaluate. Do a web search to find the item. BTW, the Wimberly MH-100 is a fantastic piece of gear, it handles my Sony 200-600mm with ease on a monopod; I use the Kirk foot with this lens.

    Is there a way to have the monopod on the right ...

    Is there a way to have the monopod on the right and camera to the left with the button on the tripod collar on top. I have tried but no matter what I do the bottom to lossen the collar is always on the bottom and hard to turn with the monopod on the right?
    Asked by: Francine
    I attach my camera with the pod on the left, as opposed to the right, lens mount screw up. I just find this more comfortable and easier to balance, plus I would rather use my left hand to tighten down (or loosen) the gimbal than my right (shooting) hand. I know Steve Perry has it just the opposite, but I can hold balance the lens easier and operate the friction knob at the same time with the left hand; this is how I have my tripod Wimberley set up. Plus every now and then I will attach a flash to the lens foot using a Wimberley bracket setup, and having the Mpod on the left provides much better balance. YNMV.

    I notice in the manual that the F9 flash bracket is a "useful accessory." I have this bracket and use it on my Wimberely gimbal. How can it mount on the mono gimbal? I don't see an attachment point (therefore I would have to use an L-Bracket attached to the camera). Thanks!
    Asked by: James
    Yes use a regular mounting plate

    Is this can be used as a temporary replacement of Gimbal head for long lens on tripod during travel? I have both Wimberley Gimbal head II and SK-100. But they are heavy than this MH-100. If MH-100 put on tripod with center column raised and the pan function of tripod is used, can this handle quite long lense such 400mm similarly as Wimberley Gimbal head does? Thanks!
    Asked by: Huitang
    I use it for sports photography with a monopod. Little bit of a learning curve because its configuration is different than other heads. Works well. Never used it with a tripod

    Is there any advantage, or disadvantage, to mounting this directly to the monopod?
    Asked by: Gerald
    The disadvantage is when you want to mount just your camera with a short lens.The camera will be in Portrait mode. I bought the monopad for the sole use with a long lens and a collar that can rotate the body to shoot landscape or portrait. I was able to balance a Nikon 200-500 F5.6 lens on MH-100 and get good results. If you want general use I would suggest a good ball or tilt head on the monopod or a Quick Connect system.
