Wimberley MonoGimbal Head
The Wimberley MonoGimbal Head is a new style of monopod head. It allows you to balance your lens, preventing lens flop. The end result is a hand-held experience with the added stability of a monopod. The offset nature of the head compared to a tilt or ball head intuitively seems like it would be a problem for handling, panning, and maintaining a level horizon. One may fear that the whole rig will want to fall over or slip out underneath. Or all of your pictures will be tilted. However in practice your hands have no problem automatically doing these things without thinking.
The MonoGimbal Head is a game-changer when it comes to portability. The offset nature allows easy carrying with the weight of the lens and camera resting on your back instead of applying all that weight to the monopod which then digs into your shoulder. Also, weighing in at 0.35kg, it is a very light and compact unit.
The MonoGimbal Head is capable of handling any lens with a rotating collar with the limiting factor being the strength of the monopod.
Note: In order to use the head, your lens must be equipped with an Arca-Swiss style lens plate.
