I have a Wimberly head version II (WH-200) which I have because of my 600/f4. I also have the P-5 body plate and the M-8 perpendicular plate so I can mount my camera on the tripod. In the instructions for the M-8 is a paragraph stating the that is not the ideal way to go for the camera because you can't flip the camera to the vertical and can't adjust the horizon, and the camera won't balance. Wimberly recommends getting an L-bracket from another vendor and then mount the M-8 to the L-bracket to mount the camera to the head. Honestly I'm having trouble visualizing this setup but I assume it will be clear if I get the bracket. Luckily I can follow instructions.
There is also the option just to get another ball head to use to mount the camera.
Which of these suggestions is least complicated and makes the most sense? Are they equivalent solutions? Obviously there is a difference in cost, which will also affect my decision, depending on the answer to the first two questions.
Thank you, Gail
