Wimberley AP-452 overview

  • 1Description

This Wimberley Replacement Foot for Nikon 400mm f2.8 and 600mm f/4.0 AF-S takes the place of the tripod collar foot and converts the collar to Arca-style clamp capability without the need for additional quick release plates. Critical mass is reduced & the profile of the lens is lowered, which makes it well suited to use with the Wimberley Sidekick. Every adapter plate is complete with both 3/8"-16 & 1/4"-20 holes to directly attach the lens directly to a monopod or tripod (without an Arca-style clamp) if desired. Drilled holes necessary to attach any of the flash brackets from Wimberley, Really Right Stuff & Kirk Enterprises are also incorporated into the design. This adapter is compatible with the Nikon 400mm f/2.8 AF-S Versions I and II & VR, and the Nikon 600mm f/4.0 AF-S Version II & VR.

Each adapter comes complete with all the necessary hardware and tools to make the conversion, as well as retaining screws to prevent the lens from falling to the ground should you mistakenly unscrew the clamp.

Length: 5.5"
Weight: 0.40 lb

Dual Safety Stops
The safety stops at the front & back of the Wimberley AP-452 replacement 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 AP-452 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
Dual 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 tapped holes for mounting to non-quick-release tripod heads & monopods

    Wimberley AP-452 reviews

    Replacement Foot for Nikon 400mm f2.8 and 600mm f/4.0 AF-S is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 30.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Accessory Getting sharp images doing outdoor wildlife photography with our 400mm lens and a 2X doubler is a real challenge and takes lots of practice. Replacing the Nikon factory supplied foot and the Arca plate with this all-in-one accessory has given us more keepers from each of our shoots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, slightly heavier than stock The replacement foot for my Nikon 600mm F4 came in on Friday and I installed it in a few minutes. The required 2.5mm tool was supplied with the foot, and the four screws were quite easy to remove and then re-install. I tested the new foot out on my Wimberly head and it fit perfectly. The replacement foot also offers standard sized holes so I can still use my lens with my monopod, and the slide stops fit the Wimberley head just right without extending too much and getting in the way. The new foot is slightly heavier than the original provided by Nikon.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enhances your lens! I have used this Arca-type foot on my 400mm 2.8 lens for a weeks time now and love it. I've had problems with the long handle like foot the lens came with as it is wobbly and makes a steady shot difficult. The new foot places the lens closer to my Wimberly head, and the wobbly action is gone. In effect the foot enhances the performance of my lens!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought a tripodhead - get this to! Replace Nikon's tripod foot with this for faster assambly with your tripod. This foot also lower the distance between the lens and the head = sturdier. But the best advantage is that my lens fits more secure to the tripodhead clamp. It also make the assambly to the tripod faster which is a good thing because the kamera and the lens is heavy and i'm always afraid to drop them when fastened to my tripod. So if you own a big lens and a arcaswiss clamp to your triphead do not be stingy not buying this lensplate.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfectly, easy to replace I purchased this foot when I rented a 600mm f/4 and the tripod collar foot on the lens did not work with my Wimberley head. I needed the replacement foot quickly as I had the lens available for only a few days. B&H quickly filled my order, the foot was easy to attach (and detach when I returned the lens) and fit my Wimberley perfectly. Thanks as always, B&H. And thanks to Wimberley too for making specific products for specific needs. (Gee, now that I own this foot, maybe I need to save for the lens, ha!)

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Solid but VERY heavy This very thick hunk of Aluminum probably will have less flex than other feet - but it is very, very heavy (compared to the other options available from Kirk or Jobu (and I'll never buy again from RRS for political reasons) ) This foot weighs 6.3 ounces, or 180 grams. Another Wimberley foot is only 4.2 ounces, and options from Jobu are 4.2 oz or Kirk are 3.8 oz. This foot is much thicker than other feet. It's very solid (if you don't mind the weight.)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A GREAT SYSTEM! I own almost every telephoto prime lens Nikon makes and I've bought Wimberley replacement foots or quick release plates for every one of my lenses from the 70-200mm, f2.8 to the 600mm f4. I also have several of the Wimberley clamps that are mounted on my monopods and tripods. Wimberley is simply the best system I know of for quick mounting and easy adjustment of long, heavy lenses onto monopods and tripods. I especially like the way you can move the lens forward and backward to adjust the weight for perfect balance. The Wimberley feet are permanently mounted to all my glass and I have no problems using them hand-held with the feet or quick release plates attached. I use these for sports photography on monopods and for wildlife on tripods. If you own long lenses the Wimberley system is great for quick mounting and quick release of big glass on monopods and tripods.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works better than the original This replaces the foot on the Nikon 400mm VR and 600mm VR, and I feel gives a more stable situation than the original foot that comes with the lens. It also is a perfect fit for the Wimberley II. There is enough of a separation so it can be used as a handle, but not too much to cause instability or a problem with fitting in a Nikon CL-L2 or Lowepro Lens Trekker 600 AW II case.
