Kirk WM-2 Overview

The Kirk WM-2 Multi-Purpose Window Mount is a versatile, heavy-duty, multi-purpose window mount that offers convenience and versatility to the pro photographer shooting inside and around a vehicle.

The WM-2 is made of solid black anodized 6061T6 aluminum, with rubber-covered feet and easy-to-grip controls. The mount features a main body that folds double which, in addition to its regular use as a window mount, gives it the added flexibility that allows it to be used as a sturdy "lowpod" for resting on a table, car roof, or flat rock.

The mount comes with a 3/8" screw, and accepts (and requires) any standard tripod head that features a 3/8" threaded socket.

The feet extend and retract for added stability and easier transportation
Stainless and brass hardware, with all-aluminum knobs
All feet are rubber coated to avoid scratching

Mount on SUV window may be problematic

By Mohammed

I bought Kirk WM-2 window mount for capturing wildlife video from the car. Once you mount with or even without 3 spacer, to use any fluid head there is not much space left to mount camera top of it. It maybe okay with Sedan car but SUV windows are high and not able to fit with camera.

I bought this after seeing another photographer use it in a National Wildlife Refuge. I have only had limited opportunity (1) to use the tripod, but it worked very well with my Nikon 750 w/ 70-300 lens. Am unexpected benefit was that it quickly adjusts from a window mount tripod to a four leg tripod that can be used on a table top, bench, car hood, car roof, etc. I anticipate using this on most of my future trips.

I set this instrument up in my Jeep window, and it was immovable once I got my camera and lens set up, It sits in the perfect position on the door and window that allows you to move around in your car seat without bumping into the stand. I also used it on top of my vehicle for a higher perspective and the rubber feet held camera and long lens in a solid position. This is a well made and constructed piece of equipment

A very well designed and engineered professional tool. Exemplary quality that you would expect from Kirk Enterprises. Built to last. I have used a previous model since 1987 and am very pleased.

This is a well made piece of gear. Mounting it is fairly straightforward and fast. You can put a Wimberley mount on it and a Canon 800mm if you want, but there's no way I'm going to do it. It fits in the window fine, and the camera body is inside the car. That's handy in the rain. What I wouldn't do is move the car with all that clamped to the window. Even static there's a good chance the setup will end in disaster, either broken glass, messed up window track, or messed up electric motor. The chance of the camera getting dumped if the window shatters isn't something I'm willing to risk.... My Toyota 4Runner is built like a brick, but the weight of the camera and lens is flexing the window a quarter inch in either direction.... I'll keep this for the 100-500 or the spotting scope, but it doesn't have the nads for a big lens.

question

Since it mounts on the window glass, will the glass break?
Asked by: Anonymous
No,all of the weight should be on the top of the door and inside door panel. You should rest it on top of door first,than tighten window clamp,than adjust hinged door feet securely.this is not designed to raise window up or down while attached,if you do,shame on you.

Do you need the spacer to use a Wimberley gimbal ...

Do you need the spacer to use a Wimberley gimbal as it has a fairly large base?
Asked by: melodie
Depending on the amount of space you have when mounting the Kirk WM-2 Multi-Purpose Window Mount, you may need to extend the gimbal out from the surface.

question

does it come with the riser adapter, or is that a separate item?
Asked by: Jamie
As per our usual setup: The camera is connected to the 600mm, the collar of the lens has a foot that is screwed to a Wimberley plate with the correct male threading. The assembled plate then fastens to a Wimberley WH200 gimbal head which mounts to the Kirk window mount/tripod with spacers. I will have to check on the brand of the risers. The best source of advice is b&h camera department. They should be able to guide your selection of riser and gimbel plate for you camera/lens setup. The action of the gimbal head is far superior to any ball head. If you are using a ball head instead of a gimbal, you may not need any risers (1 riser height x 2) roughly equals the height of a ball-head)?
