About the Wimberley Head Version II

The Wimberley Head is a specialized tripod head for telephoto lenses. Its gimbal-type design allows you to rotate your lens around its center of gravity and thus easily manipulate very large lenses. Since its introduction in 1991, the Wimberley Head has become the industry standard for serious nature photographers.

Design Improvements for Version II

The Wimberley Head Version II offers the same stiffness, capacity, and fluid movement of the old version in a more compact and lightweight package (it is one pound lighter and about two inches shorter).

The head’s redesigned panning base has zero play, and the pan locking knob has been moved to the side of the head, thus allowing the user to easily operate both knobs with the same hand. New lobed “soft-touch” knobs provide a more comfortable grip and perform better when using gloves.

In addition to the above improvements, Wimberley has examined all aspects of the head, tightening tolerances, improving friction materials and so forth. Our goal has been to make this head functionally and aesthetically better in every way than the old version and competing products.

About the tripod Gitzo 4543LS

Gitzo's top-of-the-range Systematic tripods are modular, with a flat center disk that can be interchanged for center columns, leveling bases and other components.

Because they have leg angle settings but no column as standard, Systematic tripods are all capable of near-groud level shooting. Leg tubes are in 8X carbon fiber with Gitzo's efficient G-locks. The GT5542LS is a Gitzo Series 4 tripod designed for strength and torsional rigidity under loads of up to 55lbs (25kg) and with lenses up to 600mm.

It reaches eye-level height with its long 4-section legs fully extended.
