The new Sidemount Wimberley Head is a lighter, more compact alternative to
the full Wimberley Head.
The main casting and pan and tilt mechanisms are identical to the Wimberley
Head; however, the swing arm and adjustable platform are replaced by a
sidemounted quick-release clamp. This shaves nearly a pound off the weight and
requires mounting the lens sideways as is done with the
The same dual screw mounting configuration is used to attach the sidemounted
quick-release as is used to attach the swing arm of the full Wimberley Head.
Thus, it is simple to convert the Sidemount to the full Wimberley Head or vice
versa. Conversion kits for both options are available.
