I’m not sure if I need one or merely want one. I have a macro project coming up and I will be doing focus stacking. While my camera has focus shift capabilities.

the project will be in the 1:2 to 4:1 magnification range.

I compared pricing between the RRS Macro Rails and the Cognisys products some time ago and this difference can be as little as a couple hundred bucks depending upon which products you are comparing.

RRS at B&H:

Cognisys StackShot:

As I don't yet have either product, it's an open decision where I'd go with this and I tend to prefer the StackShot option with its precise automated control.

"If you are among those who believe that it has all been done already and nothing new can be achieved, you've murdered your own artistry before ever letting it live. You abort it in its fetal state. There is much that has yet to be spoken in art and composition and it grows with the passage of time. Evolving technologies, world environments and ideologies all drive change in thoughts, passion and expression. There is no way that it can all ever be done already. And therein lies the venue for the creative artist, a venue that is as diverse as the universe is unmapped and unexplored." - Quote from FlyingLentris
