Wimberley has a system of flash bracket components that are modular, versatile and easily stowed in a small space when not in use.  Known as the Shape-Shifter Modular Flash Bracket System, the components connect without tools.  None of the combinations slip, twist or creep-even during intense action.  They're integrated with the venerable Arca-Swiss type quick release system, now dominant as the industry standard for macro and telephoto shooting.

Combo 6 is all you need to use a flash directly over the lens center with the Wimberley Sidekick gimbal head adapter. As with all of the Shape Shifter components, and unlike other manufactuerer's products, parts are captive to prevent detachment from accidentally unscrewing them too far while in the field. Total weight of this combination is 0.39 lb.

    Combo-6 Sidekick Combo is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Perfect, but will have to do With the Sidekick Shifter this does not place the flash over the center axis of the lens. If I remove the shifter, the flash is over the center of the lens, but then the lens is not centered over the ballhead for proper weight distribution. There is also no way to rotate the upper arm. It stays fixed in one position. To use it with my Nikon SC-29 cord I have to buy yet another adapter. If you overlook these shortcomings, it is well made and compact and easy to store. I am not aware of another alternative so I will have to stick with this one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wimberley is quality Seems to work perfectly. Solid & nicely machined. Meant to go with the Sidekick. Caution: Make sure there is enough footing on your lens to accomodate the flash bracket.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very functional and beautifully made I got this flash bracket to use with my Wimberley Sidekick. It's simple to install and fastens on either the top or bottom of the double dovetail foot on my 500 f/4. It's also flexible because if I want to use it with a regular Wimberley head I just have to buy the M2 piece to covert the F-6 into an F-1. It works great for filling in the shadows of back lit or top lit subjects.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Is a Flash Bracket Worth Over $150? The answer is, if it is made and works like this one, a simple yes. It pained me to part with the money, but after putting it to use it is well worth the price In. it is simply a pleasure to use. It works perfectly as it is designed perfectly. I don't know how many less expensive flash brackets I've bought that are now in the trash dump. This one will last a life time and function perfeclty the whole while.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flash Bracket for Sidekick I bought this bracket to use with my Wimberley Sidekick. Fantastic quality as are all Wimberley products. This bracket puts your flash well above your lens and is perfect to help you get that extra distance with a Better Beamer. As a nature photographer you have to be ready to shoot in all weather conditions and if you need a flash this bracket will make it all come together.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from As Advertised Provides off-camera flash when using the Sidekick. Note: Kirk and RRS lens plate users will need the AP-11 adapter. I have Kirk lens plates and the adapter also fits well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well and light weight. I am a wildlife photographer and I use this Combo-6 Sidekick adapter for mounting my flash over my long lenses. This adapter is very light, adjustable and durable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I regularly use this with my 500mm f4 and sidekick, and it keeps the flash off-center enough to not get eye reflex.
