  • 1Description

The Wimberley P20 quick release plate for lenses is made of silky-smooth anodized aluminum, with anti-twist flanges to trace the edges of the lens' tripod collar.  It fits all the Arca-type quick release adapters, which are made by many different companies such as Acratech, Arca-Swiss, Foba, Graf/Studioball, Gitzo, Novoflex, NPC and (of course) Wimberley.

Please check manufacturer's website for current head/lens compatibility.

Dual Safety Stops
The safety stops at the front & back of the Wimberley P20 plate prohibit your lens from accidentally slipping out of the quick release adapter (easily removed with supplied hex wrench if desired).
Double-Dovetail Cross-Section
The Wimberley double-dovetail design allows attachment of their Shape Shifter flash bracket system to the upper or lower surface of the P20 plate.
Works with All Common Flash Brackets
Drilled holes accept flash arms from Kirk & Really Right Stuff.
Combine with two Module 1 Quick Release Arms (B&H item code "WIM1") for a brilliant support base for using your long lens atop a beanbag.

    Wimberley P-20 reviews

    P20 Quick Release Plate is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 79.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Universal I like versality of this product as it can be used on many lenses I bought this to pair with 100mm f2.8 IS L and Vello Ring D Black TC-DB-II Fit it is not perfect but I was not sure since ring was replacement if dedicated plate will work. I see my mistake now, which I did buying dedicated plate from RRS for 70-200mm f2.8 IS II L before buying P-20 (By the way P-20 is bit longer than RRS plate for 70-200mm f2.8 IS II L) Overall it is matching quality of RRS and Kirk I like versality of this product as it can be used on many lenses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Necessary addition for Winberley users I use this release plate with the Canon 300mm f/2.8 L super tele lens and a Wimberley Gimbal Type Tripod Head II. The plate attaches and stays attached very well. Depending on the camera body you're using, you may have to slide this plate to the limits to achieve proper balance on the Wimberley head with the 300mm lens, but it has worked for all combinations that I've tried. And like all of the Wimberley plates it has the provision for use of the safety screws to ensure that the plate does not detach from the head by accident (very important feature when using expesive lenses).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works on new Canon 100-400L Bought this to attach to the lens foot of the Canon 100-400mm L series II. It's longer than the lens foot so allows the lens to be adjusted to balance on my Wimberly gimbal head. I attached it 'backwards' with the two stopper screws against the rear of the foot so it does not twist on the foot. Works great. Also allows me to attach it to my RRS quick release clamp on a Black Rapid sling strap for safe, comfortable carrying.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from almost perfect - but need to adjust Arca this product does everything right.only drawback - if you want to call it that -in using this with arcaswiss monoball z dp - you have to adjust the clamp outward for it to fit.Only problem with that, if one is using the arca swill L bracket for quick changes, and you have a wimberly plate on your long lens... well, there you go... you have to stop and adjust to make this fit, then stop and adjust to put the L plate back in use.Its modeled after arca swiss - should have been made to fit without adjustment is my opinion.excellent product though for canon 70-200/ 10-400plate is 1 1/4 wide by 3 14/16 long.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a complex product. The P20 is a metal plate with a screw in it. The features I was expecting were A. A metal plate, and B. A screw. When I opened the package I was entirely satisfied to find that it contained A. A metal plate, and B. A screw. Fantastic. I promptly inspected both plate and screw and mulled over what I could use them for. A stroke of genius struck and I pulled out my Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 IS. LO! On the bottom of my lens I found... a screw hole! Being an uncommonly bright chap, I soon had managed to affix the P20 to the bottom of my lens' tripod collar. It worked brilliantly, almost as if they were made for each other. Next I went and dug out my trusty Arca-Swiss B1 monoball, and had a whirl at inserting the newly affixed plate into it's quick-release mechanism. Wonder of wonders... it fit perfectly! After several minutes of joyously tightening, loosening, sliding, and all sorts of other riveting activities, I discovered the I could leave the lens attached to the P20 and the P20 attached to the B1, and then I could actually (wait for it) let go of the lens! it didn't fall crashing to the ground! This was quite the development, but I still had more tricks up my sleeve. I went and fetched my trusty Canon 1Ds Mk. II body and attached it to the back of the 70-200mm which was screwed onto the P20 which was clamped in the B1's jaws and guess what? Nothing happened. Glorious, stable nothing. No crashing of glass, rending of metal, popping of plastic, nothing. The P20 even has a nifty little ridge on the bottom so that if you foolishly un-clamp your ballhead's clamping mechanism with the lens tilted down, the whole works will only slide an inch or two before stopping. This is great if you have a bad habit of being careless and unthinking with gear that costs about the same as a lightly used Honda, but is pretty pointless if you aren't a complete and total oaf. All in all I am very happy with the plateness of the plate and the screwness of the screw - my only real complaint is the screwness of the price, which I find a bit painful due to the fact that you are after all purchasing a metal plate and a screw. However, nobody else is offering them for a whole lot less, and I did rather need a method for attaching lens and ballhead. The P20 does this wonderfully, and I recommend it highly. That is until I start a machine shop and kick these things out for half the cost - then you should buy mine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth The Price I recently spent a lot of money on new lenses and cameras, and it was clear that I needed a new mounting system, too. The Arca-Swiss system seemed the way to go, but I hesitated. I just want my lenses and cameras to quickly and securely lock onto my tripods and monopods. Aren't there cheaper alternatives? Yes, there are. But, you are unlikely to have as wide a range of products to choose from as with the Arca-Swiss standard, and the quality...well, good luck to you. I can't imagine that it gets better than this. I have a couple of P20's, a P40, and a couple of P5's. The P20's are mounted to Canon 100-400 and 70-200f/2.8 L lenses. Little nubs on the end of the P20 press perfectly against the foot of the lens collar and keep the lens from twisting. I use RRS lever clamps for mounting plates, and the fit is perfect. When used with Wimberley or RRS mounting plates, you can attach a couple of small screws to each end of the plate which will prevent the plate from sliding out of the base. That gives you a nice secure feeling when adjusting the fore/back placement. (Note that, when using this feature, you must open the base fully to get the plate out. This is why I prefer the lever clamp.) You won't regret going with the Arca-Swiss system and products from Wimberley and RRS.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wimberley provides extra security I used the corresponding plate for the Nikon 600 f/4 (manual focus) lens and saved dropping the lens twice. The extra screws designed to catch the lens if it should start to slide out really do work. I use Wimberley plates with the Wimberley gimbal for the 600 and now with an Arca-Swiss ballhead with an RRS clamp for the Sigma AF 300 f/2.8. There is no other plate that I have seen that gives this degree of security. Wimberley plates are pricey but are worth it for the extra security, in my opinion. They really do work.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better fit It always makes sense to use proprietary equipment and in this case especially. I used a Arca type cheaper brand on my Wimberley head and almost lost my camera because it just didn't have a perfect fit, so this time I bought the proper plate. In the long run it is a lot cheaper than dropping an expensive camera.
