Wimberley BS-100 overview

  • 1Description

The Wimberley BS-100 Brass Reducer Bushing screws into the female threading upon the tripod collars of some larger telephoto lenses, essentially converting the hole to act like a 1/4"-20 threaded socket.  Wimberley quick release plates use 1/4"-20 screws, not the larger 3/8"-16 size.

Used to convert the 3/8"-16 size female threading upon large telephoto lenses' mounting foot to accept 1/4"-20 threaded male screws
Made in the USA of strong brass

    Wimberley BS-100 reviews

    BS-100 3/8"-16 to 1/4"-20 Brass Reducer Bushing is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 81.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wimberly reducer bushing I have tried screw bushings by Gitzo and Manfrotto. Also have an Arca-Swiss,bushing, I use as a measuring stick. The Manfrotto bushings are too short for some applications. Such as when used on a Manfrotto quick release assembly. And the Gitzo just does make it. But, viewed side by side, they appear identical. Perhaps a half thread difference. The Wimberly bushing is of an adequate length, and is not plated. The Arca-Swiss bushing is also not plated, has a nice polish, a broader flange than the Wimberly bushing,and is double the price of the Wimberly product. Viewed, side by side, they appear to be of equal length.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Less is more! Casual musician who gigs occasionally. Just what I needed to complete portable microphone stand! I used it on the top piece of an Impact LS-K4 Micro Kit stand to enlarge top brass piece back from 1/4 brass to a 3/8 thread. The 3/8 thread then went into a 3 Shure microphone tube extender that already had a 5/8 to 3/8 reducer inserted in the end of it. Now I have a portable microphone stand (not really adjustable but perfect for my height) and only takes up about 16 inches when hauling gear. Anything which reduces gear size increases it's portability, which remains a constant goal. Quality of the product appears to be excellent for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from solid and two sided solid metal. i like that fact that both sides of the screw has a grove for screwdirvers. i was afraid of screing the wrong side in and never be able to remove.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Like A Charm This 3/8-16 to 1/4-20 Reducer Bushing by Oben works beautifully.I had bought a cheap $$tripod from Best Buy several years back. The head fell apart about 2 months of use. Although the legs were sturdy I decided to store it and buy a nice new Oben tripod from B&H. I needed another usable tripod recently so I pulled out the old base, bought a new head and figured I needed a reducer bushing to attach the two. This did the charm and has been working wonderfully with the tripod base and head.Thanks B&H for having what I needed and at a great price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works but wish I didn't need it I bought a Rode Videomicro and was dismayed to find it had a 3/8 mounting hole instead of 1/4. That wasn't mentioned in the Rode specs. So back I came to BH to order this reducer bushing thingy. You screw it into your 3/8 hole, and now you can stick a 1/4 screw into it. On the Rode it goes all the way inside the hole, so it's not sticking out at all. It works like a charm, but I wish I didn't need it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A well machined, quality looking bushing Think about it. If you're going to have to attach $500-5,000 worth of camera gear to a plate or tripod that needs to use a 3/8-1/4 threaded conversion bushing, now is not the time to go cheap. Right there, at the bushing installation point is where both the weakest and the most stress applied area is. I trust this bushing. It looks well constructed, uses quality brass metal.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BS-100 3/8 to 1/4 brass redcr bushing On my recent trip to NYC from the West Coast, I decided to visit B&H. I was in heaven! It's as big as the catalog!!! I went in thinking I was going to have to shell out hundreds for a new monopod head, and voila, the salesman said all I needed was this bushing! He saved me tons of money, and now I can use my favorite tripod head with my monopod. Thanks B&H
