Wimberley P-5 Universal Camera Body Plate

Arca-Swiss Style Universal Camera Body Plate

Wimberley set out to design a simple Arca-Swiss style universal plate that provides the same quality of construction, solid connection, and anti-twist characteristics of custom plates.

Rock-Solid Connection - Specifically designed the P-5 to provide a solid, twist-free connection to your camera body.

How it Works

The P-5 features a thin layer of dense, textured rubber on its top surface. This coating grips the bottom of your camera, but is so dense and thin that it maintains the solid feel of a metal-to-camera connection. Beneath the rubber, the top surface of the plate is machined to ensure that the frictional force is concentrated on the outer portions of the plate. This provides the maximum mechanical advantage to resist twisting.

Lightweight - 1.4oz (40.8g)

A hollowed-out underside and lack of flanges or extensions on top minimizes bulk and weight.

Dual Safety Stops

The P-5 features the same unique dual safety stops found on our lens plates.


The P-5’s thin profile and generously rounded corners make it easy on the hands; it blends beautifully with the contours of your camera.

Threaded Hole for Non-quick-release Applications

The P-5 offers a third hole that is threaded and can be used to attach your camera to a ¼” stud on a tripod head platform without the need for a quick-release clamp.

Please Note:

If you want to be certain that the P-5 Plate is suitable for your requirements please check the Wimberley P-5 Compatibility information
