Wimberley M-8 overview

  • 1Description

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.

The Perpendicular Plate gives you a dovetail plate that is perpendicular to the original direction of your camera body plate.

Since the dovetail on most camera body plates is oriented perpendicular to the axis of the lens, adding the perpendicular plate gives you a dovetail plate that is parallel to the axis of the lens.  This is useful for attaching telephoto and macro brackets to your camera body.  The Perpendicular Plate can also be used to make small forward and backward adjustments for macro photography.

No Tools, No Creep, No Lost Parts
Wimberley's modular Shape Shifter system needs no tools for use.  Components quickly and easily connect to one another, with a design that makes creep or twist during use simply impossible.  All knobs are captive, and cannot fall off accidentally from being unscrewed too far.

    Wimberley M-8 reviews

    Module 8 M-8 Perpendicular Plate is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 26.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GETS YOUR CAMERA ON THE TRIPOD CORRECTLY I've used Wimberley products for years. My tripods and monopods all have the Wimberley clamps permanently attached and all my long lenses have the Wimberley plates permanently attached to them. Everything works great! The only exception was when I wanted to mount my camera to the tripod or monopod. With the regular Wimberley plate attached to the camera, the camera would mount sideways, which was kind of clumsy. Now that I have the Module 8 M-8 Perpendicular Plate, I can attach my camera (Nikon D4) in the correct orientation. It works great just like all the other Wimberley plates I have on my lenses. A little expensive, but like all the Wimberley products it's great engineering and superior quality.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful item I use this T plate whenever I find a need to mount my DSLR on a Gimbal head with arca-swiss type clamp. It works very well. I like it better than the equivalent RRS T plate because it is a bit lighter and the grove on the sides goes all the way along the edge so I can clamp the DSLR in any position (forward/backward) I want. The only complaint I have is that I just wish the tightning knob was a bit smaller and lower (like on the RRS plate) so it does not bump the left side of my L plate (I can only clamp it on the right or center of my RRS 1Ds L plate)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works perfect but spendy I can easily use this plate on my gimbal mount and use my camera with the correct orientation so I do not need to carry a separate tripod. I think the cost is more than slightly higher than it should be or this would have got 5 stars

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ingenius Yet Simple Device The main reason I bought this was to mount my D700 with wide angle lens and L bracket to the Wimberley Head. That way, I could use just the Wimberley head in the field for my telephoto shots and my wide angle shots rather than having to take along a ballhead too. However, I was pleased to see that the plate can also be used for other purposes apart from the Wimberley head. For instance, it can be used to attach one or two flashes to the camera. I'm glad I bought this very versatile plate.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection The perfect addition to the Wimberley toolkit. Provides a quick release arca swiss mount for your camera. Great for situations where you would like to attach your camera directly to the tripod head when using lenses without a tripod collar. Well built.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from More useful than it looks Another high quality product from Wimberley. Relatively self explanatory but this product allowed me to mount my camera on the Wimberley gimbal when I didn't have the large lens with a foot. Mounts well to the RRS L-bracket.
