Testimonials
I recently made a "sizeable" purchase with NatureScapes and I couldn't be happier with the services provided! I was shopping for a new Gitzo tripod, Wimberley head and several related accessories. One of the things that immediately caught my attention was that NatureScapes offered discount "bundle" pricing on the tripod+leg covers and the Wimberley head+cover that none of the other "big name (internet) stores" offered. NatureScapes also sells a custom-designed Gitzo “safety plate” which adds increased strength to the tripod head for supporting heavy lenses. The safety plate was “free” with the purchase of the tripod, so that was another benefit for me. NatureScapes provided lightning-quick responses to multiple email questions (both before, and after my purchase), and the owner of the company spoke to me, at length, on the telephone. Processing and delivery of the order was quick, convenient, and painless (I used PayPal) – with free shipping, no less! As a first-time customer, I am glad to say that it was an absolutely flawless transaction, and I wouldn't hesitate to do business with NatureScapes again.

Yesterday, I placed my first order from the NSN store and I have to say that I am very impressed so far. Within literally an hour after my order, the order shipped out. I dont think that has ever happened with an on line order. So thank you for the very quick service and I am looking forward to receiving the toys! :)

The WH-200 Wimberley Head is a specialized tripod head available via NatureScapes.Net; its gimbal-type design allows you to easily manipulate very large lenses. It incorporates an elevated tilt mechanism and an adjustable platform to perfectly align the center of gravity of a big lens with the tilt axis of the head. This design allows your lens to be perfectly balanced, meaning that a 15 pound 600mm f/4 can be manipulated as if it were weightless.


The WH-200 offers the same stability, capacity, and fluid movement of its predecessor yet weighs in one pound lighter and is about two inches shorter! The head's redesigned panning base has zero play and the pan locking knob has been moved to the side, 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. This new version of the Wimberley Head has a built-in Arca-Swiss style quick-release clamp and is not available in a non-quick-release model.


Includes a 5 year warranty.

Please see the Specifications tab below for additional information and training videos.

The Wimberley Head II has these features:
  • 1 pound lighter than the old version (3.15 lbs compared to 4.15 lbs)
  • Compact: 5/8 inch narrower and almost 2 inches shorter than the original.
  • Improved ergonomically with both knobs located on the same side of the head, making it easier to o operate both knobs with the same hand.
  • New, 5-lobed, soft touch knobs are comfortable and easy to grip in cold weather or with slippery or gloved hands.
  • Better variable tension: it does not have separate controls for tension and locking, but the locking controls deliver smooth resistance with diminished stick-slip.
  • There is no play or sloppiness in the pan base, even when the head is unlocked.
  • The dovetail on the swinging arm of the new Wimberley Head, which allows adjustments of the platform up and down, now has the Arca-Swiss geometry.

Please note that the original Wimberley Head Flash Module 5 is not compatible with the new Wimberley Head without the use of an adapter. This adapter (the FA-09 Wimberley Head Flash Adapter) is available separately. The new head uses the Flash Module 9, developed specifically for the Wimberley Head II. The Module 9 is compatible with the Module 6 Extension Post and Module 3 Tilt Arm, the modules most commonly used with the Wimberley Flash Head Module. You can also purchase the Module 9 and the Module 3 together as the Wimberley Combo 9.

Wimberley makes a high quality product. They are committed to their work and are located in Virginia. The Wimberley head II is easy to set up and does a great job with large telephoto lenses.

Advantages: Sturdy, well constructed, easy to setup and use

Product as good as my last Wimberley 2 head - really excellent. So good I bought 2. It is easy to assembly with the tripod I bought (Gitzo) - took about 5 mins max.
Product arrived on time and well packed.

Advantages: Great product

Disadvantages: Pricey but worth it

This is my second Wimberley Head II. We needed a second tripod and head to replace a cheaper, less stable setup. Sure there are less expensive alternatives, but I know what I'm getting with this one, and it's rock solid on Gitzo legs for both long lenses and spotting scopes. It's also built extremely well. I've never had any problems with my other one in the 5 years that I've used it. Finally, I prefer to support a small USA company.

Advantages: Solid stable platform
Very well built
Will last even under heavy use.

Disadvantages: None

I am using the the Wimberley head with my long telephoto lenses for shore bird and wildlife photography. I like the design of the WH-2 and the greater stability compared to my ball head mount. Complete instructions accompany this head, along with the tools to assemble it. It took me about 15 minutes to assemble, including attaching an arca-swill type plate to my lens collar. The plate does not come with the WH-2 kit, but Wimberley and many others sell these. Balancing camera and lens was fast and easy, and instructions for this are included in the WH-2 kit. The movements are smooth as can be and converting from landscape to portrait mode is done simply by loosening the tripod mounting collar on the lens and rotating 90 degrees. Overall, this is a well crafted and designed gimbal head. It looks and feels very durable for years of use. Many other gimbal heads of various size and weights are available, some at lower prices. I decided to try a well known Wimberley and I am quite pleased with the product.

Advantages: Well designed
Solid construction
Easy to assemble and modify (option to covert to side mount)
Smooth movements
Good accessories and support from Wimberely

Disadvantages: On the expensive side, but it is a very high quality item.
Weight (fairly typical for full size gimbal)

Advantages: Strong, smooth and as close to vibration free as possible!

Disadvantages: Cost is high.
