The Wimberley F9 Flash Bracket consists of modules M3 & M9. It attaches directly to the swinging arm of the Wimberley Head Version II. Since it is attached to the head and not your lens, it remains in place when you switch lenses. The bracket folds flat for easy storage. When folded flat, the bracket can also be used with side-mount gimbal heads such as the Wimberley Sidekick. This bracket will not work with the old version of the Wimberley Head, which is compatible with the F-4 Bracket.

I purchased this product to use with my 500mm lens and Wiberley Head for bird photography. By raising the flash higher above the lens I was hoping to reduce gray eye in the pupil of the bird and get a better catch light. The bracket helped in both regards but in some situations gray eye to a lesser degree is still produced, which can be eliminated through editing. The product is well made and attaches nicely to the Winberley Head. The main negative is the rediculously high price for this item, almost $200 for a piece of metal only a few inches long. Oh well, I guess you only live once. Would recommend if you have the cash.
