Oben MFR4-5 Overview

The MFR4-5 Macro Focusing Rail from Oben is a lightweight macro stage designed for precise 4-way camera alignment. Its ability to make small incremental adjustments is ideal for close-up work, tilt-shift or macro-photography.

The MFR4-5 provides 2.75" of maximum front to back movement and 1.25" of maximum left to right movement controlled by dual-level adjustment knobs. The two angles of movement are controlled by independent top and bottom rails which may be separated using the included Allen key. This allows the top rail to be used alone as a front-to-back macro rail.

The rail is also equipped with an integrated Arca-type compatible quick release clamp and an included Arca-type plate. The plate uses a 1/4"-20 screw mount compatible with most cameras. The rail can also be mounted on most tripods by utilizing the built-in 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 tripod mounting threads. A durable aluminum construction provides smooth operation for extended use and keeps the unit lightweight at only 1.3 lb.

Does this come with an Oben (or Arca) quick release plate?
Asked by: Kris
It comes with a QRP but will accept some other plates but it doesn't seem to fit the Arca plates I have. The plate that it comes with works quite well and will allow moving the camera side to side with screws that stop it from sliding off.

can I attach to a RRS BH-40 ball head?
Asked by: Francisco
I assume the ball head has Arca Swiss clamps. If you add a Arca Swiss adapter like you would to a camera body yes you can. I mount mine to a Manfroto 410 geared head all with Arca Swiss style mounting. Or as others have said mount directly with 1/4-20. Focusing rail has female thread

question

Can I mount this on my Manfrotto XPro 3-way head?
Asked by: Glenn
Since this rail has a 1/4-20 thread at the bottom, you can attach it to a head like a Manfrotto XPro 3 way head.

question

Has anyone every tried adding markings for precise measurement?
Asked by: Glenn
The rotation knob on the device is haxagonal. I have marked the vertices of the rotation knob with numbers from 1 to 6. I have used a silver colour marker to do that.Before I start rotating the knob , I note the number which is at 12-o-clock position and then start rotating it by half a turn or full turn based on the need. It may not be very precise but is good enough for me. The minimum you can go is 1/6th of a turn. I have not calibrated how much linear movement it gives .

question

Will this rail accommodate Manfrotto's 200PL quick release plates?
Asked by: Matthew S.
No. I have both and just checked. The 200PL plate is too wide to fit in the rail's receiver.

question

The top rail, which I think is for side to side movement, makes a clack sound for every turn of the knob. The sound happens for one way only.Is this normal? Is there a way to stop it?
Asked by: Soumyadeep M.
Mine does not make a clack sound. Sounds like a defect.
