About the Wimberley Sidekick
At 1.3 pounds and small enough to be easily packed, the Sidekick converts your ball head into a gimbal head in seconds.
Simply slide the Sidekick into the quick-release of your ball head. The Sidekick's elevated tilt mechanism and side-mounted quick release allow the lens to rotate around its center of gravity. This provides the same action and ease of use found in the original Wimberley Head at greatly reduced size, weight, and cost. Remove the Sidekick and your ball head is ready to use with smaller lenses.

I bought a "blem" but could find no blemishes anywhere on the Sidekick, making it a great value. NOTE: If you use a lever lock clamp like the Really Right Stuff you'll need to add the AK-100 foot to the Sidekick. The AK-100 fits my RRS clamp exactly like the RRS foot on my body & lenses.
I see no reason to spend a lot more money on the full size gimbal unless your lens/body combination will not balance with the Sidekick.
easy to mount, and a true fluid bimbal - aka using sealed ball bearings, not thick grease
Recommended for the occasional user, with telephotos like a canon EF 100-400 mk2.
My Markins Q-20 ballhead is a great base for this add-on, but you still need a stable tripod under it all
It handles and balances my Nikon D-810 with the Sigma 150-600mm Sport lens easily.
