Kirk LRP-1 overview

  • 1Description

The 6.5" Kirk LRP-1 Long Rail Quick Release Plate provides a sliding long plate solution to any head equipped with an Arca-type quick release clamp. Its dual dovetail plate enables attachment to any Arca-type clamp or head and the topside dovetail allows a flash or other accessory with Arca-type clamp to be attached. It provides about 6.5" (16.5cm) movement range, ideal for fine-tuning during macro and close-up photography. In addition, it also features a 90° swiveling Arca-type quick release clamp on top, which now allows bi-directional control.

    Kirk LRP-1 reviews

    LRP-1 Long Rail Quick Release Plate - 6.5" is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great piece of gear. This is my first Kirk product and I'm impressed. It's great for adjusting camera to subject distance while shooting macro. It's also good for balancing the load over the head when using long non collared lenses. You can rotate the quick release clamp 90 degrees. And there's detents so it's exactly 0 or 90 degrees. Those who gave it 1 or 2 stars because it's not a true focus rail---it's not SUPPOSED to be a full blown focus rail! No you can't get as precise as a rail. But it's smaller, lighter, and much less expensive than one.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality product Got this as a macro focusing rail with my arca-swiss type QR clamp. The machining of the plate is excellent, solid and does not weigh too much. It doubles as a nodal rail for my camera setup. though lacking markings, i only need to setup the nodal point once for my lens. it requires a hex key to release the QR clamp screw to repositioning to a right angle. It would be good if the screw has a D-ring built in for easier repositioning.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes a good nodal plate for panoramas I used this with a Nikon panorama head and Nikon 12-24mm f/4 DX to shoot single-row panoramas of interiors. Sturdy, did the job. If it had been much longer, it would have shown in the photo or required an additional spacer above the rail - this was the right device for this job. An improvement would be to highlight the distance scale in white and carry the graduations down the side for alignment of the rail at the nodal point on different lenses. It would have been helpful to use a geared head to align the camera and lens along the panorama axis - it took a lot of time with the ball head to get good alignment and never was quite right - getting that last degree can be important to maximizing the coverage of a single-row panorama.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flexible Product Useful as a focusing rail with and without collared macro lenses. Long enough to serve as a nodal plate for panoramas with most lenses. Well designed and light.
    Date published: 2009-11-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from For the perfect position... Perfectly designed and crafted. I use it as a tool to help position my 200mm macro. I also use Kirk's and Novoflex's macro focusing rails, but this is smaller, lighter and great for easy fore and aft movements to get desired framing. Works particularly well with the Kirk knob release (love the Arca Swiss compatible!).
    Date published: 2010-09-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very well built I bought this rail for use with my tripod and mirrorless camera with a heavy lens. It is well built and has laser cut measurements on both the rail and the clamp. I use this with a Kirk L bracket on the camera. I did find that other clamps may not capture the grooves in the bracket with a secure interface. I replaced the tripod quick release clamp with one from Kirk and it works great. I think it's best to stay with one manufacturer to ensure secure stability of expensive equipment. Probably not a place to cut corners.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid well constructed I use this along with the Kirk FR-1 rail. This gives me some lateral side to side adjustment if I need it when I am setting up the shot. It works, the locking knob holds solid. No cons.
    Date published: 2014-01-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Made and Easy to Use I use this Kirk LRP-1 as a "nodal point" slider for panoramas. It is very well made from good materials. It has a bubble level which I really don't need because my panning head has bubble levels, but it's nice to have as a double check. The arca fitting that attaches to the camera L-bracket can be adjusted 90 degrees in case you want to mount your camera sideways to the rail. I really like that the Allen wrench needed to make this change is conveniently stored in the device. I don't anticipate needing to change from the lens pointing along the rail, but it's nice to have this option. In addition, I like having the Allen wrench handy because it is the same size required to attach the Kirk L-bracket to my camera.
