Wimberley Plamp 2 PP-200


Every Photographer Needs at Least One Wimberley Plamp !



One end of the Wimberley Plamp 2 clamps to your tripod while the other grasps the object.

Use the Plamp to stabilize windblown subjects, adjust the position or angle of your subject, or move obstructing foliage.

You can also use the Plamp to hold reflectors and lens shades.

One day in the field with a Plamp and you will begin to realize its full potential.

Uses for the Wimberley Plamp 2 on location:

  • Steady wind-blown plants for ambient light photography.
  • To hold reflectors, diffusers or small flashlights.
  • Make small adjustments in your subject to align it with the film plane.
  • Move your subject into the desired angle for lighting (i.e. back lighting, side lighting, and front lighting)
  • Change the orientation of your subject to make an impossible camera angle into an easy one.
  • Move your subject so that it is in front of the desired background.
  • Move distracting background or foreground elements out of the way.
  • Move desirable background or foreground elements into the picture.
  • To hold a small shade to block light from hitting your lens and causing flare.
  • Great for studio use.

Compatibility:

Tripods:

  • The Plamp 2 will attach to tripod legs whose diameter is between 0.9 and 1.4 inches (23 to 35mm).
  • This includes Gitzo series 1,2,& 3 tripods and nearly all commonly used Bogen (Manfrotto) tripods.

Lenses:

  • The Plamp is 23” long, which is perfect for 100mm and smaller macro lenses.
  • If you wish to use longer lenses with the Plamp, you may wish to extend its length with the PP-222 Large Link Plamp Extension.

The Plamp II will hold 12” reflectors and diffusers in any position with confidence.


20” reflectors, generally held in most positions and not fully cantilevered out, can be held and positioned confidently with a single Plamp II.

20” Diffusers can be cantilevered above your subject using one Plamp, however it is pushing the limits of the Plamp’s holding capacity.
It might take some experimentation to find a position that will hold.
For diffusers larger than 20” in diameter, two Plamps are pretty much required to hold it steady.
