great rail. Well designed with built in Allen wrench as well as QR attachment. Would only have liked a bigger Level at end and lighter.

Great for parallax of small lenses

Adjustable both bottom in a arca swiss and on top for any size lens so plate is not in lens view.

Works great!

I use it to find the no parallax point on my lens for pano shots. Works great for that. Very well made as all Kirk products are.

This does exactly as advertised. The workmanship is precise and functional. The etched markers are beautiful. Yes you can pay less but this will last a lifetime and will always be accurate. Quick, easy, and solid changing the axis. All parts are sturdy & precise, arca compatible. Costly, but you get much more than most other systems offer.

I bought this to setup for Panos. It is incredibly well made. The machining is perfect, the knobs big and easy to use, and the lockup is fantastic. I highly recommend.

This rail is awesome. Easy camera connection and swap to/from portrait or landscape is a large plus. Well built and sturdy enough for even your heaviest camera bodies and lens.

It screws on to the head of a tripod or if you have an Arca compatible head, it will just slide in the head.

Does this fit directly and lock into the Manfrotto 500AH or is another arca swiss clamp required as a bridge between Manfrotto and this rail?
Asked by: Jay
No There is a bracket that replaces the top of the 500ah with an arca Swiss compatible one. Hudsonhenry.com has a section that explains it. Other combo is a bit heavy but works great.

does this fit manfrotto MVH 502AH?
Asked by: Fred
Not by design. The Kirk LRP-3 7.5" MPR uses the arca-swiss style dovetail/system. You will need to mount this to a Manfrotto 500-series plate in order for it to slide into the MVH502AH.

If this is mounted vertically on a copy stand (for use as a "microscope" setup), would the action be smooth and precise, even at 4x magnification? It would be a working distance of about 10mm from microscope objective to subject. This would be a ≈5lb. camera/lens setup attached to this rail. Thank you!
Asked by: Kaegen
Absolutely not! The LRP-3 is simply an arca-Swiss sliding connection with no micro adjustment capability. DavidR2506
