Wimberley WH-200 Overview

The Wimberley WH-200 Gimbal Tripod Head II with Quick Release Base is a gimbal-type tripod head that incorporates an elevated tilt mechanism and adjustable platform to make the camera/lens' center of gravity and tilt axis of the head be perfectly aligned.

Things once thought of as impossible with a ball head are nothing short of mundane with a Wimberley, because a weightless camera/lens combo (even a 600mm f/4 w/ large body) can literally be controlled with one finger. Point the rig where you want and take the hand away, and it stays exactly where you put it.

The Version II head is more compact and lightweight, features a redesigned panning base, "soft-touch" knobs, and includes a built-in Arca-type compatible quick release base. An Arca-type quick release plate is required and is available separately.

The built-in industry-standard Arca-type quick release clamp makes it compatible with the many different plates available from Arca-Swiss, Acratech , Kirk, Wimberly, Really Right Stuff, Foba, etc.
The head does not have separate controls for tension and locking, but the locking controls deliver smooth resistance with diminished "stick-slip".
The overall height of the head is 9.25" (23.5cm), with the lens platform adjustable from 3.5 to 7.1" (8.9 x 18cm). The centerline of a balanced lens will be approximately 8.4" (21.3cm) above the bottom of the head.
Distance from the mounting surface of the platform to the tilt axis: Adjustable from 1.1 to 4.8" (2.8 to 12.2cm).
The head's redesigned panning base has zero play and the pan locking knob has been moved to the side of the head; this allows the user to easily operate both knobs with the same hand.
Lobed "soft-touch" knobs provide a more comfortable grip and perform better when using gloves.
Powder coated/anodized finish.
Made in the U.S.A.

Just ordered the AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR lens which quick release adapter do I need to purchase with this WH-200?
Asked by: Robert
The main purpose for purchasing a WH-200 would be to use it more so for Bird or Wildlife photography to help pan and track more steadily across a shot. If you think this is something you may be doing, it would help quite a bit but is not necessary by any means..

question

Which tripod (cost is NOT a factor) would you reccomend for this Wimberley WH-200 Gimbal tripod head? I will be mounting a Nikkor 400mm, f2.8 or a Nikkor 600mm, f 4 lens (both of which I recently purchased from B&H) with a Nikon D4 body onto the rig. I need a compatible tripod that will allow me to just drop the Wimberley head directly into the top of the tripod and tighten it down without any additional adaptors or anything else. I'm just not sure which tripod (legs) are compatible with this head. Can you give me a recommendation or recommendations ? Thanks so much for your assistance. You guys at B&H are the BEST!
Asked by: Anonymous
I use this head on a Gitzo GT5543XLS as well as a Manfrotto 058 and both are workhorse tripods that come without a head of their own. People want light tripods (the Gitzo GT5543XLS) is light despite its giant capabilities and the Manfrotto is one of the heaviest tripods made - people will tell you it is a studio tripod, which it is, but I have taken this sucker to China for magazine work and it never let me down (I wasn’t carrying it on my back either). The Wimberley head is heavy and it needs a solid tripod under it for it to perform at its best.

If I use this gimbal head is there a need to have a ball head at all?
Asked by: David
I have this gimbal head and in my opinion you do not need a ball head. The only time that I do not use the gimbal head is when I am using a monopod
