About the Wimberley Gimbal Head II
The Wimberley Head is a specialized gimbal tripod head for telephoto lenses. Its gimbal head type design allows you to easily support and manipulate very large lenses for tracking birds and animals. Since its introduction in 1991, the Wimberley Head has become the industry standard for serious nature photographers.
The Wimberley Head Version II offers the same stiffness, capacity, and fluid movement of the old version in a more compact and lightweight package. 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.

It would be very helpful to recommend each of the quick release plates at the time of purchase.
The versatility is extraordinary but the customer should be warned that a separate purchase is required. This is more more a matter of convenience than a concern.
One purchase w the appropriate accessory would save time and avoid a last minute hassle.
I like trying to get photos of Roseate Terns (and other birds) on the harbor where I live. These birds fly fast, turn fast, and when they see a fish, they're like a kamikazi ... they dive straight down into the water. I always had trouble getting them at the right point in time, and if I did catch one, the photo wouldn't be level.
The Wimberly Gimbal is very sturdy, takes all the weight off the camera, and allows for smooth panning up and down and sideways while keeping the camera level. I love how fluid it is, and if you clamp it down just a little, the camera and lens will stay where it is aimed from a vertical standpoint, but you can still move it in a different direction any time you want. It's a bit expensive, but worth every penny in my book.
