BIRDS AS ART ON-LINE NOTE June 8, 2001


PRODUCT INFO

Wimberley Flash Brackets

 

The Wimberley Flash Bracket attaches in an instant to the arm of the Wimberley Head with a low-profile quick release clamp. No more dropping and turning little screws for five minutes...  Since it attaches to the head instead of the lens, it is smaller than other brackets, yet rides higher above the lens (further reducing red-eye and steel-eye). In addition, it remains on the head when you switch lenses (so there is no need for multiple brackets, and it is not necessary to switch a bracket from lens to lens). The bracket disassembles and folds for easy storage.

 

Wimberley Head Flash Bracket: $186.00 plus $5.00 shipping and handling.  All Flash Brackets are shipped by US Priority Mail delivery confirm.  Florida residents please add 6% sales tax to the price of the bracket only.  Please make checks out to "Arthur Morris" (or use http://www.paypal.com)

 

The Wimberley Arca-Swiss Flash Bracket
 
This bracket attaches almost instantly to the quick release plate of your telephoto lens and wraps 180 degrees around the lens to position the flash above the lens. No more dropping and turning little screws for five minutes...  Adjust the vertical position of the Tilt Arm on the Upright for different sized telephoto lenses. Flip the Tilt Arm upside down to lower the flash even further. You can also attach the Tilt Arm so that it positions the flash off-center.
 The Wimberley Arca-Swiss Flash Bracket: $196.00 plus $5.00 shipping and handling.  All Flash Brackets are shipped by US Priority Mail delivery confirm.  Florida residents please add 6% sales tax to  price of the bracket only.  Please make checks out to "Arthur Morris."

Wimberley Lens Plates

 

Wimberley lens plates come with safety stops at the front and back of the plate. No more worrying about your expensive lens accidentally slipping out of the quick release clamp. The above feature is unique to Wimberley Plates.  I recommend that you opt to use both stops.  When you do this, you must open the jaws of the quick release clamp wide enough to load your lens from the top (instead of sliding the plate in.*  Using both stops will ensure that your big expensive lens will never fall out of the clamp should you (as we all do every now and then) forget to tighten the clamp when balancing your rig fore and aft. (Darrell Miller was my first P-50 customer and you can figure out why...)

Wimberley Lens Plates

The suggested plates allow enough length to easily balance your lens in almost every configuration. The plates are generally at least 3/4" longer than the mounting foot of the suggested lens. This allows you to attach a flash bracket to the top surface of the plate. 
 
For Canon EF Lenses: 
 
The P-20 plate is perfect for the 180mm Macro, the 70-200mm f/2.8, the 80-200 f/2.8, the 35-350 zoom, all of the 300mm f/4.0s, the 100-400mm IS zoom, and the my beloved "toy lens" the 400mm f/5.6.
 
The P-40 plate is perfect for the 500mm f4/5.
The P-40 plate plus one reducer bushing* is perfect for the amazingly popular 500mm f/4.0 IS lens. 
 
A reducer bushing is needed for some of the Canon IS super-telephotos because one of the mounting holes is larger than the other (to accommodate sports photographers using monopods).
 
The P-50 plate is perfect for the 400mm f/2.8 II and the 600mm f/4.0.
 
The P-50 plate plus one reducer bushing* is perfect for the 400mm f/2.8 IS, the 600mm f/4 IS lens and the old EF 800mm f/5.6L.
 
The P-40 is correct for the 400mm f/2.8 AF-S and for all Nikor 500mm AF lenses.
 
The P-50 is correct for 400mm f/2.8 AF-I, all of the 600mm lenses, and the old manual focus 800mm f/5.6.
 
The P-20 plates are $52 plus $5.00 shipping and handling.
 
The P-40 and P-50 plates are $58 plus $5.00 shipping and handling. Please add $3.00 if you need a reducer bushing.  Thanks!
 
All plates are shipped by US Priority Mail delivery confirm.  Florida residents please add 6% sales tax to  price of the plate only.  Please make checks out to "Arthur Morris."
 

JRF Protective Neoprene Lens Covers

The JRF Protective Neoprene Lens Covers are individually designed and manufactured for the Canon 500 mm and 600 mm IS lenses. The camouflage-patterned neoprene protects your lens from the nicks, dings, and scratches that scar your expensive investments. The camo also takes the edge off the effect of swinging a big white lens off your shoulder after carefully approaching a free and wild bird, somewhat reducing the chance that you will cause the bird to flee.

We are receiving a large shipment of these hard-to-keep-in-stock items in mid-June.  All of the (newly-designed and manufactured) covers listed below feature a clear, flexible UV-PVC material that will cover and protect the AF (&IS) control panels from weather and scratches.  Some of the controls can be operated through the clear covers; for others, it will be necessary to custom punch holes with a 1/4 inch hole punch.
