I had a specific question about compatibility with my lens so I emailed NatureScapes on Sunday morning, not expecting to hear back until at least Monday. I received a very detailed reply from an obviously knowledgeable person - in LESS THAN TEN MINUTES! Not only did he answer my question - he pointed out to me that there was a less expensive option if I purchased two items together PLUS he alerted me to a $15 off sale that I would have not otherwise known about. In my 73 years I have NEVER had this kind of service - I will be coming back to NatureScapes in the future for all my gear needs! Highly recommended!!!
NatureScapes store provide a fast and excellent service. The staff (Tara) are so very helpful and so quick to respond to any question about an order.

Note: Really Right Stuff (RRS) lever-style clamps may require an adapter plate to work with the Wimberley Sidekick. These clamps have a very limited clamping range compared to traditional twist-knob clamps. The range is not adjustable and may vary significantly from clamp to clamp. RRS guarantees that their lever-style clamps will accept dovetail plates that have a specific width, one that is the standard used by Wimberley and RRS.
The Wimberley Sidekick is designed to work with twist-knob style clamps, there is an inherent variability in the width of the Sidekick's dovetail (because it is powder coated) that makes it impossible to guarantee that it will fall within the limited clamping range of RRS lever-style clamps.
If your RRS lever clamp will not accept the Sidekick, you will require an AK-100 Adapter Plate.

Using with a canon 500/4 with 4th generation replacement foot and works great. The replacement foot is lower profile and keeps the lens centered over the tripod with the side mount which makes things more stable.
Advantages: Lighter and more compact than full size gimbal head.
Makes it easier to swap from gimbal to standard ball head on same tripod.
Disadvantages: Not quite as smooth as full gimbal (but totally workable)
Side mount is a little trickier to do quickly
