Wimberley CK-100 overview

  • 1Description

The Wimberley CK-100 Sidemount Conversion Kit allows you to replace the swinging gimbal arm and Arca-style quick-release platform of the Wimberley Head Version II (WH-200) with a side-mounted Wimberley quick-release clamp, effectively turning it into the WH-200-S Sidemount Wimberley Head.

This enables you to side-mount your lens, which results in a head with a slimmer profile that weighs almost a pound less than the classic Wimberley Head. To make the conversion, just unscrew two screws using the supplied Allen key and remove the gimbal arm & platform, then screw in the CK-100 piece, a vertically oriented Arca-Swiss-style platform that's 2.5" wide. (To switch back to the classic Wimberley Head, simply reverse the process.)

    Wimberley CK-100 reviews

    CK-100 Sidemount Conversion Kit is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes Wimberley smaller, easier to pack Easy to install replacing the arm on the Wimberley gimbal head. Makes the overall size smaller so it is easy to pack. Hard to say if it makes the head harder or easier to use. I am mostly interested in reducing size and weight of my gear when traveling.One new but odd usage I have found. I with the CK-100 installed, a RRS Heavy Duty Monopod Head can be mounted in the CK-100 and then a camera with a short lens mounted in the RRS HDMH. Gives you a different set of controls from a ball head, with a lot of flexibility and easy conversion between horizontal and vertical. Not necessarily better than a ball head. Just different and another option to consider.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recommended for specific use of camera portrait positin I use this Kit on Wimberley gimbal in case I want to shoot panorama having the camera in portrait position. It is robust, precise, works very well. It takes time to remove the L-shape of the gimbal and fix the Sidemount because the fixing is by use of screws. I wish that could somehow simplified so that could be done fast and easy especially when at diffucult sites.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from simple and useful I bought this kit to enhance the Wimberley gimbal head use. It enables portrait position of the camera for single shooting. In addition, it enables combining panoramic views from individual portrait position shots - so better quality pictures. The replacing of the swinging gimbal arm and attaching the sidemount is simple and quick.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Converted for Use with Olympus E-M1 II & 300 F4 PRO Downsizing from Canon's 600mm lens to Olympus Micro Four-thirds made me decide to pare down my gimbal setup. This conversion kit was easy to install and is so easy to use, along with the Wimberly flash bracket kit, that it makes it a pleasure to hit the trails in search of wildlife and birds again. Perfect combo for me!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from As advertised I can now use my Wimberley WH-200 for landscape and wildlife. This side mount gives me more versatility with one head.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Holds a 500mm f4 fine no issue, cuts done on some weight. Worth the cost to me.
