At 1.3 lbs (.6 kg) and small enough to be easily packed, the Wimberley Sidekick converts your ball head into a gimbal head in seconds.
Simply slide the Sidekick into the quick-release of your ball head. The Sidekick's elevated tilt mechanism and side-mounted quick release allow your lens to rotate around its center of gravity, providing the same action and ease of use found in the original Wimberley Head at greatly reduced size, weight, and cost. Remove the Sidekick and your ball head is ready to use with smaller lenses.
The Sidekick is recommended for lenses similar in size to Canon 300 f2.8 IS or smaller.
