The Kaiser RS1 Copy Stand is a high-quality copy stand that meets special requirements for strength, design and above all, angular precision. For large, heavy camera systems, an extremely low level of vibration is a must for perfect results. This requirement is satisfied perfectly with the RS1. It features a precise height adjustment system with weight compensation by an integrated coil spring.

The non-reflecting matt black baseboard with printed grid marking enables originals to be easily positioned. Reproducible precision is also guaranteed by the cm and inch scales marked on the specially wide, matt black anodized column made of a special aluminum tube.

For levelling the complete unit, there is a spirit level in the strong pedestal. The height is adjusted by a friction drive with nylon bearings and hand crank. On the RS1 copy stand, the RA1 Repro Arm ensures precise and sure fastening for the camera.

With the easily changed camera screw, you can mount any type of camera system to the repro arm. All you need is a coin to change the 1/4" screw to a 3/8" screw. The RA1 repro arm features four centering holes for the precise adjustment of the optional graduated stage and repro bellows.

The aligning pins fit exactly in the repro arm holes. In this way, absolutely parallel mounting is guaranteed at all times. The adjustment device on the RA1 repro arm enables any particular camera mounting position to be reset exactly at any time. It is adaptable to different camera bodies.

For 35mm cameras, this device is positioned so that the bottom of the camera is exactly level. For medium format cameras, the adjustment device is used as a stop for the side of the camera body. Fast changing is possible.

The large 18 x 20" (450 x 500 mm) baseboard has a fitted mount for fastening the column to the repro arm. A spirit level is integrated into the mount which facilitates alignment. The feet are individually adjustable in height. A well-marked grid completes the solid baseboard construction.

Note! This set comes with an RA1 Repro Arm (#205520), 40" Counterbalanced Column (#204474) and an 18 x 20" Grid Baseboard (#205517). It DOES NOT come with any lights

            Comments about Kaiser Copy Stand RS 1 with RA-1 Arm:

            I ordered the copy stand to copy old family portraits that are mounted on thick card-board or wood. These are not flat and so not suitable for a flat-bed scanner. I use a Nikon D800 with either a Nikkor 105mm or 60mm macro lens.
            The stand is very stable and very easy to adjust the height of the camera. The height mechanism is a delight to use; it does not creep once the height of the camera is adjusted for the portrait being copied.
            A highly recommended product with excellent service provided by B&H Photo.

                Very high quality product, easy to put together and operate vertical apparatus. I use it to photograph still life subjects and this product makes that challenge much easier.

                    This is a very sturdy copy stand. The stand has an incredibly smooth action that is easy to move up and down. There is very little vibration, even with a heavy load. The only reason I did not give this 5 stars is it is a little pricey.

                      I am so pleased with this product. The copy stand is sturdy but not too heavy or cumbersome. The camera mount can be adjusted to extend horizontally. The vertical crank operates VERY smoothly and allows for precise adjustments. No complaints here!
