    Wimberley P-30 reviews

    P30 Quick Release Plate is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 56.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Tool Purchased this Quick Release Plate so that I could use on my Nikon 200-500mm lens. This Plate allows me to use this lens with my Wimberly Gimbal Tripod Head. This plate is very well machined and is the perfect tool to keep my camera and lens securely locked to the tripod head and yet easily is removed from the tripod head when needed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Picture does not show all details I bought the P30 based on Wimberly recommendation for my lens Canon 300 2.8 IS. Even if you use a flash bracket, I don't think you need more than the P20 for a 300 2.8 IS so before you buy either the P20 or the P30, get your measuring device out and judge for yourself. I have a RRS flash bracket, so the double dovetail of this plate works perfect for that. In fact I don't know of anybody's flash bracket that will not fit this plate. If you look at the picture on this page, you will notice the slot for the mounting screw and numerous holes. They all have a purpose, some you may need, some you will not. What is important is that they are there to accomodate your other accessories. What you don't see in the picture is the finely precise machine work that has been done to make this plate do what it does best, hold your camera lens where it should be. My only complaint about this plate is that it seems to be too long for my taste. I pack it over my shoulder clamped to a monopod for long distances and the end of the plate digs into my shoulder. So I am going to buy a P20 and if it doesn't work out for the 300 2.8 IS, I'll just put it on the 100-400L. The price seems high, you could not make it for less considering the quality of this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great This works greate with my Tamron 150-600mm lens. It screws on the single hole Tamron foot ok, the anti-rotation flange fits perfectly,and then I can quickly take my lens on and off a Jobu gimbal with an Arca-Swiss quick connect on a HM-J3D swing arm. I'm having a great time with this setup looking for birds in flight.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid and Secure - Perfect For Heavy, Valuable Lenses These plates are sturdy, easy to mount and truly quick release, but secure in hold. I bought the longer plate for my 500mm lens several years ago and I've never had a spot of trouble. I bought the P30 plate for my 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 lens. I generally hand hold my 500mm and my 100-400mm, but when it's time to put it on the Wimberley Sidekick, mounted on a heavy tripod, I know that these plates are secure when matched with equally robust and secure Arca-Swiss receptors.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wimberley P30 plate I purchased this plate to use with my Sigma 150-600 lens. I had a shorter plate but on the tripod it did not balance. The longer plate lets me slide the lens/camera back so it balances on the tripod. This is the plate that Wimberley recommends for this lens and it works fine

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WORKS GREAT I recently purchased the Tamron 150-600mm lens for use with my Nikon D610. This Wimberley P30 Quick Release (Arca-Swiss) Plate attaches perfectly to the Tammy foot tripod mount making it easy to mount the lens to the Arca-Swiss mount that is on the tripod.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid QR plate Purchased for use with my Nikon 200-500 to attach to the Wimberly sidekick. Fits perfectly and gives me plenty of room to balance the camera on the gimbal. The anti twist flange is great.
