Replicating the capabilities of a lens-based tripod collar, but designed for use with nearly any lens, the CRD-87 Package Camera Rotation Device from Really Right Stuff allows you to easily rotate a camera system 360° about the lens axis. In addition to the rotating abilities of the CRD-87 Ring and its dedicated CRD Rail, this package also includes an MPR-192 Rail and FAS-Clamp for critical front and back positioning of the camera to enable precise camera placement that is suitable for studio, portrait, and macro shooting, as well as for video applications for producing well-controlled Dutch angle shots.

Each of the components in this package are constructed from lightweight CNC machined 6061-T6 aluminum and have a Type II black anodized finish for long-wearing durability. The CRD-87 is compatible with most tripod or camera stand heads fitted with RRS/Arca-type compatible quick release clamps, but is ideally suited for use with pan/tilt, geared, and video heads that have independent pan, tilt, and roll axis adjustment.

CRD-87 Ring and Rail
  • Rotates a full 360° about the lens axis, and locks at any rotation angle for precise control.
  • Integrated click-stops at every 45° of rotation.
  • Allows lens axis to be positioned at center of rotation point, and allows lens nodal point to be positioned at the pivoting axis.
  • Can be adjusted to fit most lens and camera combinations fitted with Really Right Stuff quick release plates that have a left-to-right orientation.
  • Compatible with optional B87-B flash bracket accessories.
  • CRD-Rail features an integrated on-end quick release clamp to slide into the dovetail component of the CRD-87 Ring at a 90° angle for a sturdy and rigid connection.
  • Rail itself features two Arca-type compatible male dovetails as well as three 1/4"-20 threaded sockets.
  • Index scale on side of rail.
MPR-192 Rail
  • Double Arca-type compatible dovetail rail accepts clamps on both the top and bottom sides.
  • Two 1/4"-20 screws are included, and can be removed depending on specific needs. These screws have a 2.7" slot length for adjustable mounting.
  • Integrated high-contrast bull's-eye spirit level.
  • Laser-engraved scale on both sides of plate has 1mm incremental markings.
FAS Clamp
  • Fore-Aft Sliding (FAS) clamp slides along the dovetail of rail for adjustable fore and aft movement.
  • Bottom index marker allows for exacting and repeatable positioning.
  • Slide lock-knob is used to secure clamp in position.
  • Clamp's channel runs in a left/right orientation to accommodate plates with left/right orientations, such as camera body plates but not lens plates.
  • Top-loading design opens the clamp in a single motion, and allows for quick, direct attachment of Arca-type compatible plates. The lever can also be easily viewed to confirm if the lock position is fully locked, half open, or fully open.
  • Lever has the same height as the clamp, as well as a smooth and matched shape, to maintain a low profile design.
  • Clamp affords 50 lb of holding power to ensure cameras are held in a steady, secure position.
  • Laser-engraved scale on top of clamp.
