New NiSi NM-200s Macro Rail (Focusing Rail) for Macro Photography
Following the unprecedented popularity of the NiSi Macro Close-up Lens for 67, 72 and 77mm lenses and the Macro Focusing Rail NM-180, we have again listened to our customers and produced the brand new NiSi Macro Focusing Rail NM-200s with several improvements.
The biggest challenge for macro photographers is keeping the camera perfectly still in 3D space. Moving even a millimetre can cause the shot to miss, and it is easy to lose critical focus even with a tripod. This is why a macro rail is essential. The rail allows precise control over the distance between the lens and subject, the NiSi NM-200s has a length of 200mm and an available area of 180mm (1 mm travel per rotation), it can be used on a flat surface or by removing the pins it can be fixed on a tripod.
For dual-axis control (4 movements), the two systems can be stacked 90º to each other.
We are constantly making improvements to our products, some details may differ between the photos on this page and the actual product in the latest production.
The NiSi Macro Focusing Rail is compatible with the Arca-Swiss mount and is equipped with an Arca-Swiss quick release plate. The long plate is designed to facilitate locking and releasing the camera even with telephoto lenses. The bottom of the rail includes 3/8″ and 1/4″ mounts for all tripod heads compatible with this format (in fact all heads on the market, but we always recommend checking). There are four (removable) pins that allow it to be used directly on a table. The slide is 200mm long and has an adjustment range of 180mm n (travel of 1 mm per rotation of the knob). Both sides of the rail have engraved marks to further facilitate precise positioning.
The NiSi focusing rail is made of high-precision CNC-machined aluminium and has a corrosion-resistant anodised finish.
Thanks to the 3/8″ and 1/4″ screw attachment, the Macro Rail NM-200 is compatible with most tripods. The plate, which rotates 360°, can also hold telephoto lenses and the movement distances are conveniently engraved on the side of the rail.
New Quick Adjustment clamp added to smoothly move your camera back and forth with a simple push of a button.
