Lens Replacement Feet


These custom low-profile replacement feet replace the factory foot on the rotation collar of your lens. These feet also serve as the Arca-Swiss style quick-release plate eliminating the bulk and complexity of an additional plate. A Wimberley lens foot also improves lens handling on a conventional tripod head, such as a ball head, and also makes it easier to pack.

Using our replacement foot on your large lens decreases the overall height of the lens, lowering the center of gravity so that it is easier to achieve proper balance when used on a gimbal head such as the Wimberley Head. When using the Sidekick or Sidemount Wimberley Head, replacement feet are useful and sometimes required for optimal gimbal head performance.

The replacement feet are precision machined to slide right into an Arca-Swiss style quick-release clamp. They also have tapped holes for mounting to non-quick-release tripod heads and monopods. All replacement feet feature the same safety stops and flash bracket compatibility as our lens plates.
Wimberley Replacement Lens Feet lower the lens profile compared with the manufacturer's original lens foot.

Wimberley Replacement Lens Feet lower the lens profile compared with the manufacturer's original lens foot.

Lens feet are often a weak link in a lens support system. We use finite element analysis validated by empirical data when we design our feet. This process allows us to reduce weight while maintaining an appropriate level of stiffness. Other manufacturers often reduce weight by removing too much material. This may so drastically reduce the stiffness of the foot that it becomes a weak link (undermining the stiffness of the entire setup).

* Arca Swiss profile is not compatible with most Manfrotto or Gitzo Clamps.
