SX50,,,Macro Rail Final Fabrication Pic's

Here is the much awaited Macro Rail. My machinist friend did his part now I need to make the desktop base. It will have a Quick Disconnect between base and lower left/right slide rail and a vertical adjust Quick Disconnect between the camera and upper forward/back slide rail. I may add a rotatable feature to the camera QD.

Now for some desktop macro work.

The top slide rail will be positioned so that most of the 6 inch length adjustment will be in the forward travel,camera will mount on the forward end.

Botton slide rail will be centered on base block and have approx 2 inches movement capabilities left &  right
