      Comments about Novoflex Focusing Rack Small (Mini):

      I am not sure why there are so many negative comments about this focus rack. I have used mine for a few months now and it performs flawlessly. I am using a Canon 5D Mark II with a Canon 65mm macro lens tied to a Manfrotto ball head. I have also used it in a vertical position without gear movement, but if it were to slip, I could lock it with the lock knobs. It is built well and focuses accurately.

        • Film Copy Work

        Comments about Novoflex Focusing Rack Small (Mini):

        Quality craftsmanship is evident as soon as you pick it up. Since I will use this for RAW file copy work of negatives, it speeds up the process compared to scanning. Very good option to have a 6 x 6 capability to make copies of negatives.

          Comments about Novoflex Focusing Rack Small (Mini):

          I use the product in close-up work. It is nice and small, very compact. However, it is so difficult to turn the dials that the camera shakes terribly. It's virtually impossible to focus accurately.
          I wouldn't recommend.

            Mounting a Canon EOS 5D MarkII + MP-E 65mm (fully extended to 5x) + Macro Twin Lite MT-24EX in portrait will not work with this rack. The rubber cover of the mount comes loose. Due to the weight the camera can not be fixed tight enoughand the camera will slowly tilt downwards.
            In landscape it works as expected!

              Comments about Novoflex Focusing Rack Small (Mini):

              With my Leica R-8 or Digilux 3 using a 60 mm Macro Elmarit and extensiuon tube it is extremely easy to close-focus on tiny flowers simply by setting the lens focus and racking the camera forward and back until the image is sharp. Far easier than trying to coordinate tripod placement AND lens focus.
