The 6.0" Adjustable Camera Platform from Dot Line is designed for very fine camera movements where the photography hinges upon precise adjustments. You can mount it on a tripod or other stand and adjust your camera's position one millimeter at a time to get the camera into just the right position. Combining two platforms will give you the ability to have left/right and front/back adjustments rather than just one of them. It features two 1/4"-20 threaded posts, an adjustment wheel and a lock.

    I've been experimenting with macro photography for a while now and this is my first adjustable slide. I'm having much better results with the slide than with adjusting the focus. For $ I really can't complain at all about this device, but that's not my nature so I'll nitpick a little. I won't list everything I like about it which is most everything but the adjusting knob could be slightly larger to accomidate finer movements with more ease. There's not too much else I don't like about it though and is well worth the price.

    I read the all one info on this product and all the reviews and it seemed to me it would fit any tripod. Not so. The base doesn't fit on to my Manfrotto. It seems like a good enough product. Too bad I can't try it! Therefore I can't even yay or nay it.

    Comments about Dot Line Adjustable Camera Platform (6.0"):

    I own a larger 2-way macro rail, which is a bit more cumbersome to carry around and take to the field. This Dot Line rail is small and very portable, but sturdy and well made. I'm very pleased with it. Highly recommended.

              Relatively well made and with a low vertical stack height.
              Will work well for occasional macro work.
              I can find no fault with it.
              Quite a deal compared to others I seen that cost many times more.

                Easy to adjust and with a positive lock. I will only give it four stars as the adjustment is a bit course and has some play in the gears. It does work fine for macro and overall I'm happy with it. I'll probably buy a second one for left/right adjustment also.

                  This platform now lives on my tripod. I've used it with my 400mm tel to balance the load on the tripod and with my 70mm macro to make distance adjustments, as opposed to moving the tripod back and forth. The rack gears aren't super fine but if your careful it will do the job. The lock works very well and makes the setup secure. If you like macro work, you'll love this device!

                      This has really helped my macro shoots. Well built and quality product if I could change anything I would make the adjusting teeth a little finer for less movemr=ent with each adjustment,but it's not a big deal

                      I got this for getting the camera to pivot over the lens nodal point doing pano shots. Not "butter-smooth" with how big the notches are but good enough. And I have no idea why the arrow mark was set where it is.

                          I use this with my 100mm Macro Lens. It works great, especially for the price. It's much nicer than having to move the tripod all the time. Very sturdy for this rather heavy lens. No problems at all.

                            This is a very simple adustable rail. It has an inexpensive look to the maching, but is unexpectedly very sturdy.

                            I use it on a tripod to take 3d pairs.

                              Used for macro work and focus stacking. Appears to be well built and fairly precise in it's adjustments. Decision to purchase was based on price and this is a bargain as opposed to other platforms.

                                  This simple, well made device is very effective when performing macrophotography where you often need to precisely move your camera closer to or further from your subject. I am using this with a Pentax K3 and the Pentax 35 mm macro limited lens. The platform easily attached to the camera and to my tripod and has helped me better focus in on my subject.

                                    Works great to lign up nodal point for basic panoramas. I also use it to mount a flash beside my camera. The product quality is surprisingly good for the money. The only weak point I've noticed is the set screw.

                                        I needed something small for my macro photography where I can get close to my subject. I bought a couple of these and configured it to be able to moved on X and Y axis and this is just perfect for the application I needed. Awesome!

                                            Bought this to use with a table top tripod as well as a regular tripod. Action is smooth, adjustments can be made flawlessly.

                                              I bought two of these so that I can control my lens forward and back as well as left and right. The build was surprisingly strong. All parts are metal. Not sure how they compare to there pricier models but it does exactly what I need it to.

                                                I've been experimenting with macro photography for a while now and this is my first adjustable slide. I'm having much better results with the slide than with adjusting the focus. For $ I really can't complain at all about this device, but that's not my nature so I'll nitpick a little. I won't list everything I like about it which is most everything but the adjusting knob could be slightly larger to accomidate finer movements with more ease. There's not too much else I don't like about it though and is well worth the price.
