The NSN Store is awesome! I have ordered multiple things from them recently, the shipping was super fast, I even received my Beamer Keeper the day after I ordered it! They cannot be beat by any other online store. I will be ordering most if not all of my gear from the NSN Store from now on! Thanks to Greg and all involved, keep up the good work! :)
I'm a real stickler for customer service. Good service is pretty rare these days, yet Naturescapes has gone far beyond what I would call good service - it has been amazing. It is such a pleasure to deal with honest people who care if the customer is happy. Please keep up the excellent work!! Many thanks!!

Wimberley II deserves its stellar reputation.

Disadvantages: Cost is high.

This is one of the best Gimbal head available on the market today.
Advantages: It operates very smoothly and is a joy to use. Very strong. It's large size also helps when using heavy lens/camera combo
Disadvantages: Weight. I hope Wimberley will come up with a Carbon Fiber version one day.
It's also expensive, but worth every penny.

As others have said, "the Gold Standard" of tripod heads for big-lens wildlife work. Rarely, if ever, mentioned is its stellar functionality for macro-work! Add RRS's rail slider bars (7-10") and front to back movement is exceptional - the Wimberley head well up to the induced leverage occasionally encountered
Advantages: Extremely comfortable knobs that are very smooth working, plus well placed. Likewise the thick curved arm serves as a superb hand grip. By far the best head I've used of four major types/brand names.

I never realized the excitement and thrill of useing the wimberly head-200.I had solely used a monopod for all photos except for handholding action shots, however. I was also missing some eagle action.I would miss some of the crucial photos of eagles picking up the fish because of the difficulity of the monopod not being able to follow the pickup of the fish.I needed to concentrate on improving my action photos.I decided after much deliberation to make the move to the wimberly head .I have not regretted this decision .I now take practice shots with gulls that quickly dart and accelerate in flight.The Wimberly has not failed to out perform my monopod and capture the detailed action with precision accuracy.I am eleated -I wish that I would have changed earlier-thank you Wimberly
Advantages: QUICK ,EASY MOVEMENTS -A THRILL TO USE .EASY TO INSTALL

This is my second Wimberley head, and I can't say enough about them. Now I can sit in my blind with the 100-400mm lens on one tripod, and the 500mm with a 1.4X on the other.

I have owned the WHII for a couple of years now and have found it to be an excellent gimbal head. I use it with a 1D Mk IV and EF600 f/4L IS with and without a 1.4x II converter with excellent results. I highly recommend using the Wimberley replacement foot on whatever lens you use with it. It is very rigid and provided the most stable mounting platform.
Advantages: Smooth controlled balanced action
Excellent Build quality
Disadvantages: it is expensive but it's the gold standard for gimbal heads

Made in America!!!!! Smooth acting. Simple to set up. Well worth every penny
Advantages: Quality item...... allows use of just a couple of fingers to manipulate the camera

Essential for shooting moving wildlife with a long heavy lens, but less useful for time exposures where more stability is needed.
Advantages: Very easy and smooth to use when tracking flying birds with a big heavy lens.
Disadvantages: Even when all parts are clamped down tight, there is some play. This lack of stability causes problems for time exposures.

I bought a Wimberley WH-200 gimbal head from Naturescapes about a year ago for use with an EF500mm lens, and the performance is outstanding - I couldn't be happier. (I also purchased the LensCoat cover for the Wimberley head as part of the Naturescapes combo deal.)
Advantages: Perfectly balanced, smooth, operation of the gimbal makes it extremely easy to support and operate a super-telephoto lens set-up
Disadvantages: On rare occasions, I "hit the limits" of up/down gimbal pitch -- but only when attempting to shoot at very high, or low angles (definitely not a showstopper).
