          This is a well made, heavy duty copy stand that will work with big cameras. It is easy to adjust, has a calibrated center column, and the camera is held parallel to the baseboard. I am using this for scientific and museum collections photography and it makes life so much easier than what I had before. You'll work faster because of the spring loaded platform lock.

              I initially considered using an LPL-D6700-Dichroic-photo-enlarger (which can be reversed ie camera at the top) to re-shoot old slides, but the cost put me off. 2nd hand are rare. This copy stand is larger than I need but smaller ones will probably not support a Canon 5D. This one certainly does. I use a Medalight Grande Lightbox ULB-150 for a light. I have tried shooting several slides at the same time, but the quality is inadequate - so 1 at a time...now for the dust...

                The stand is sturdy with a nice rubber grip where the camera connects preventing the camera from moving. Quack and easy to adjust the height of the camera. Very pleased with the purchase.

                  Used to shoot images of products, primarily collectible coins, to be sold at auction. Used with Canon 60D and macro lenses, also purchased from B&H. The equipment is fairly heavy and the copy stand handles the weight with no problem. This combo results in excellent images that make a real difference in the auction prices realized.

                      I use the RS-CS920 Copy Stand to photograph works on paper by a well known abstract expressionist painter. I use a Canon XSi with a Canon EF-S 18-55mm zoom lens with two Canon strobe lights. I use as small an exposure as possible to correct for lens curvature. The whole works very well for paper sizes up to 9x12 inches. I have modified it to work for 21x30 inch watercolor sized paper by adding a spacer to extend the camera from the post and by adding a larger base. It is easy enough to do but should be available as an option in my opinion. I would also like arms built into the base to hold the strobes. I will probably add that.

                          I have about 5,000 images I'm reproducing... essentially, my father's life as caught on film. I wanted a sturdy, reasonably adjustable stand with lights. I couldn't quite get the feel from the B&HJ website, so I stopped in last weekend while I was in NYNY. They were very helpful and set me up with this item. I relied upon their recommendation and had it shipped. Arrived yesterday, and it's great. Sturdy. VERY EASY to change the height (push the front panel, slide the camera up or down and release. The mount is counterweighted and moves up and down very easily. The ONLY disappointment was that I forgot to ask whether the baseboard is marked so that dead center is easy to find with any subject. But that may not be possible with this design and it varies with the camera used, and there is no adjustment for that. I also got the lights (RS-C150) and loaded them up with White CF bulbs (not included). This approaches perfect.

                              As I read for their larger version, the assembly that holds the camera is plastic and has some minor flex. I would not mount a camera with a battery grip. It's secure. It's not going to break but the image plane may not be parallel to the baseboard. My immediate use was not so critical and it worked just fine. I mounted a 7D with a Sigma 70mm macro. If I were doing critical macro work on flat objects, I would shim the sujects stage with pieces of paper or business cards as needed.

                                For an economical non lighted stand this one is great. No slippage when camera is attached. I use it with my own lights but for convenience order the one that has the light kit. Worth the money.

                                  Comments about RPS Lighting RS-CS920 Copy Stand:

                                  I am a 2D animator, and I needed a copy stand for shooting animated pencil tests at home. I ordered the RS-CS90 Copy Stand because of it's affordable price, and generously sized baseboard (suitable for 16-field animation paper, as well as the smaller 12-field paper).

                                  The copy stand arrived in two boxes-- one for the baseboard, and one for the column. The assembly process was very simple (requiring just an allen wrench and some screws, all included). The assembled copy stand works perfectly-- it is very sturdy, and the mechanism is very smooth and precise. The column is also calibrated, so I can switch between different settings quickly.

                                  Overall, I am very happy with my RS-CS90 Copy Stand, and recommend it highly for anyone looking for a reasonably priced, sturdy & reliable copy stand.

                                    Very solid rigging. I was surprised by the size and stability of the piece. If this is in your house/studio it certainly lends the feeling of seriousness and professionalism to the surroundings. Everything worked just as it should and was together, out of the box in a matter of minutes. Very much worth the value.

                                          The copy stand was easy to assemble and it was easy to mount my Canon D90. The adjustable bracket allowed me to change the height of the camera easily and securely.

                                          For items that you can't easily scan on a standard flat-bed scanner, this copy stand is quite useful. It is somewhat limited in the size of items that can fit on the platform -- I found some framed pictures hard to position so that the entire image was in the view of my camera (using a 35mm lens.)

                                                I use this for shooting 2-d animation. The spring in the camera mount makes it really easy to adjust upward or downward. Simple, solid piece of equipment.

                                                I use this copy stand for photographing coins, and there is just one thing that annoys me. The camera mounts in a position that is not perfectly parallel with the base, so with the shallow depth of field of my macro lens, only part of the flat subject will be in focus. I had to make a small block that rests at an angle to compensate the 5-10º error and straighten it all out. Considering a perfectly overhead angle is the main reason I wanted a copy stand, I consider this to be a considerable flaw. Aside of that, I am very pleased with the heavy-duty nature of this and it's ability to easily support my SLR camera. The mechanism glides very smoothly up and down the post as well. Overall, it's worth it for me to have this for [$]and make the minor adjustment than to pay $300-$500 for the more expensive ones.
