macro rails
Apr 19, 2011

I'm getting close to the point of buying a macro rail to make better use of my 105vr. I'm strongly leaning toward the RRS rails, partly because I like the RRS products. (Have RRS ballhead and L-plates already).

I'm looking at the RRS B150-B, but considering the Ultimate Package (two B150-B's).

How much of a pain is it not to have geared left-right capability in a macro rail?

With the single rail, I'd actually slide the camera in the clamp to move it left or right. With the ultimate two-rail package, I'd be able to fine tune the left-right position. I don't know if that ability is worth the extra money as I've never used macro rails before.
