The biggest challenge facing macro photographers is holding the camera perfectly steady, moving even a millimetre can throw the shot, so it’s easy to lose critical focus even with a tripod. This is where the focusing rail is essential. It gives you precise control over the distance between lens and subject. The NiSi Macro Focusing Rail has an adjustment range of 125 to 145mm subject to plate configuration (1.25mm travel per revolution.) and can be used on a flat surface or remove the studs to secure it to a tripod. For dual-axis control, you can stack two systems at 90º to each other.
The NiSi Macro Focusing Rail is compatible with the Arca-Swiss dovetail mount and is equipped with an integrated Arca-Swiss type quick release foot-plate and clamp. The long plate for telephoto mounts is ergonomically designed for easy locking and release, and the bottom of the rail includes 3/8” and ¼” mounts for all compatible tripod heads, along with four (removable) studs allowing use directly on a tabletop. The 180mm rail has an adjustment range of 125 to 145mm subject to plate configuration (1.25mm travel per revolution) via the collapsible main thumb-screw or end-screw and a 360º rotating head. Both sides of the rail have engraved index marks to further aid precise positioning.
The NiSi Focusing Rail is constructed of CNC machined aluminium and has a hard-anodised corrosion-resistant finish.
