Wimberley gimbal head and Manfrotto tripod Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Wimberley gimbal head and Manfrotto tripod

Asking Price
$415 USD

Item Location
Long Island, NY (United States)

Item Description
Wimberley WH-100 gimbal head, Wimberley C-30 quick release clamp, Manfrotto 3021N tripod -- all for $415 plus shipping.

The Wimberley head is in excellent condition. Wimberley makes the world's best gimbal heads. I own two other gimbals -- a Jobu and a Chinese knock-off of the Wimberley. I thought they were everything I needed until I bought the Wimberley. But there really is no comparison in terms of stability and smoothness.

The Wimberley C-30 quick release clamp is only a few months old. I bought it new from B&H for $100. The C-30 transforms the WH-100 into the model that superceded it, the WH-101.

The Manfrotto 3021N is a very good aluminum tripod, essentially the same as the current model 55 classic. It is in excellent condition. Everything works as it should. It provides a very solid, easily adjustable base for the Wimberley. I've regulary used it with a heavy 500mm lens.

The Wimberley WH-100 series sells for $300+ on eBay when it becomes available, which is once in a blue moon. The clamp is $100. The used 3021n tripods on Amazon are listed between $125 and $190 whereas a new model 55 costs $212. So you'll be lucky to be able to put this combo together for less than $525.

I'm willing in principle to sell the items separately, but packing and shipping is a hassle so I'll give the combo a few days before I'll consider offers for the pieces.

I'm selling because I've upgraded to the Wimberley WH-200 and Gitzo Systematic legs, which I'm not at all sure are giving me any photographic advantage over what I'm selling other than weighing a bit less. But I bought the new stuff so the previous kit must go.

Note that I can only ship on Fridays and Saturdays.
