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 3542XLS

Gitzo Systematic tripods are the strongest and most stable tripods available in the market and offer unsurpassed flexibility of use. These tripods are a unique modular system that can be quickly transformed into different configurations. The same tripod can serve both as a video and a photographic support. A wide selection of accessories allows to keep growing your system accordingly to your future needs, for still life, macro, outdoor, sport and wildlife applications. Systematic tripods are available in 6X carbon fiber and aluminum tubing. Aluminum tripods (Series 5 excluded) have been completely redesigned and upgraded to the same features of 6X carbon fiber models. Aluminum Systematic are now faster, lighter and more stable.

A key innovation is the use of Gitzo latest aluminum tube1.2mm wall thick, 30% lighter than its predecessor, with Anti Leg Rotation system (ALR) and brushed matt black finish for improved locking performance and minimised reflectivity. Thanks to ALR, Aluminum Systematic tripods are now as fast to operate as the 6X carbon fiber versions.

A part from the tubing, aluminum and Carbon Fiber systematic tripods now share the same features: G-Lock, removable self locking feet, three leg spreads and new upper platforms. These new platforms allow for a more solid connection of the head and reduced vibrations thanks to the safe lock techno polymer disc and a locking screw for the head. This locking screw is fixed for series 3, while for series 4 and 5 it can be set at different diameters accordingly to head size. The new upper platforms come with a new sand bag hook for additional stability and convenience.

Systematic tripods are available in a wider selection of heights: compact and standard height for reduced weight and increased transportability, eye level height for comfort and precise control, over head height for extra flexibility in the studio or at weddings, concerts and sport events.

Series 5 aluminum systematic tripods feature the traditional Gitzo locking system with no ALR and the heavy duty 1.6mm tube. Their legendary stability and rock solid weight make them the ideal support for studios. Carbon 6X and the new aluminum Systematic tripods come with a smart Gitzo display cleaner and a convenient anti dust bag for storage and packing.
