just got a canon 500mm lens and wanted to get the right gear to use it - wimberley 2 head. Put it all together and with just one set screw this P10 plate didn't seem strong enough for the lens. ... I need a P-50. I have that one on order now. Will use the P-10 with a smaller lens, so it won't be wasted. wish I had done a little more research before my order.

As it is mandatory for the Wimberley Tripod head I purchased would have been best if it came with the head

Excellent product that I would recommend to others.

Comments about Wimberley P10 Quick Release Plate:

I recently bought the Wimberley WH-200 gimbal head and several mounting plates to fit my various lens. I had conflicts between my Canon 7D (with battery pack) and the 45 degree joint between the horizontal and vertical beams of the head. I was able to resolve this problem with conversations with Wimberley (and the purchase of two additional plates at a cost of over $100). Regardless it is very well made and has the potential for a lot of use under various conditions. However purchasers should be aware of the total possible cost of the head and all plates that they might require. These same additional plates that I required might also be required with other cameras and lens combinations. Check the total cost of any heads and plates that you are considering before purchasing.

Whimberly P-10 Plate

Comments about Wimberley P10 Quick Release Plate:

I needed this lens plate for use with my sidekick gimbal as my 80-400mm Nikon zoom was unstable on my RRS 55 Ballhead. The plate solved my balance problem with the sidekick and now the camera lens is perfectly balanced on the sidekick gimbal..

          Comments about Wimberley P10 Quick Release Plate:

          I use this with my EF300 f/4. The anti-twist flanges work well. Other plates without these would eventually twist and loosen, no matter how much you tighten them.

          Seems to be well made with very close tolerances, as if it were an aircraft part.

              This is a precision-made lens mount for arca swiss tripod mounts. The lens mount has removable stops to prevent the bracket from sliding out of the mounting clamp, and has a lip at the end to prevent the clamp from twisting on the lens mount.

                        Very easy to slide on and off once it's mounted to the lens. It also has a flange that keeps it from rotating like other QR plates do under heavy use. I really appreciate that!
