The pro’s Kill er Kit #05 Wimberley Mark II gimbal head
Chris says… The Wimberley Head is a specialised tripod head for telephoto lenses, with a gimbal-type design which allows you to rotate your lens. This is the original, although there are lots of copies about. It’s not cheap at £520/$595, but it’s an essential for wildlife pros, as it’s super-smooth moving, so you can pan, balance the camera or lock it in place. Perfect for stills and action shots, it makes even hefty lenses feel weightless.
