Wimberley P-40 overview

  • 1Description

Wimberley's quick release plates for lenses are made of silky-smooth anodized aluminum. They fit all the Arca-type quick release adapters, made by many different companies such as Arca-Swiss, Foba, Graf/Studioball, Gitzo, NPC and of course Wimberley. The plate has drilled holes to accept flash brackets from Wimberley, Kirk & Really Right Stuff.

Note: The following lenses have 3/8" threads, and require a "reducing bushing" (#GBRB) to fit the plate:

Lens Bushing
Canon 500mm f/4 IS x1
Leica Modular 280mm to 560mm x1
Leica Modular 400mm to 800mm x1

Dual Safety Stops
The safety stops at the front & back of the Wimberley P40 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 P40 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-40 reviews

    P40 Quick Release Plate is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 38.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Mount I have this plate mounted to a Canon 500mm f/4 lens. I use an RRS B2 LR II quick release plate, and I am very happy with this combination. Note that, when you read the documentation it sounds like you need to purchase a bushing to convert one of the 3/8 sockets on the 500mm to a 1/4 socket. Yes, you do need the bushing, but Wimberley is kind enough to include one in the package with the P40.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helpful The plate was helpful when I was photographing birds. It was easy to get the camera/lens off the tripod quickly when I wanted to handhold it and easy to place it back on the tripod as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wimberley P-40 for Canon EF 500 f 4 and 600 f 4 The Wimberley P-40 is beautifully designed and engineered, it is the perfect solution for mounting super-telephoto lenses to the Wimberley WH-200 II gimbal head. It makes it easy to adjust the lens for perfect balance and it is totally secure.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a Wimberly Product... One can expect extremely high quality, and one can get it with this company. It marries my Really Right Stuff BH55 ballhead to my Nikon 200-400. It allows for a wide range of balance depending on camera bodies and accessories used. The Arca-Swiss type is my favorite for all my gear attachments. This has quality hardware to secure to lens foot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works fine on Nikon 200-500 Works fine on the Nikon 200-500VR collar. When RRS or Kirk makes a dedicated collar with Arca Swiss dovetail, I won't need this. Until then, it's perfect for the job.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Match for the new Canon 500mm f/ This plate is a perfect match for the new Canon 500mm f/4L. I already had the Wimberley WH-200 Gimbal Head, but needed a new plate since the other one I have is for a much smaller lens. This plate fits the bill perfectly. As with the other Wimberely products it appears to be first rate quality, and it has no sharp edges or other flaws that cheaper knock-offs may have. Great product at a fair price.
