    Nodal Rail with Level Quick Release Clamp is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Proper Point of View I bought this Rail to make panaramic photos for real estate photography. It has taken the guesswork from and, thereby, greatly improved the accuracy of my near field photo's. This is a solid, precise piece of kit of very high quality. It's principle benefit for me is to allow the camera to be set back fron the pivot point on the tripod. I calculate the setback required by eyeballing two vertical lines - one near and one far and setting the camera back until the relative position of the lines doesn't cahnge as the camera swivels. Not terribly scientific but it seems to work just fine for my work.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from You pay for Acratech quality The nodal point is a consideration for intermediate distance subjects. The rail is finely machined and is a high quality product. The quick-release clamp makes it easy to install and remove. It's not mass produced and is expensive for what it is. I recommend it if you can afford it, but it's not an essential piece of equipment. I have an Acratech ball head and leveling base. I couldn't be happier with the quality and performance of Acratech products.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A breeze to use I use this mainly for shooting panoramic landscapes for perfect stitching. The clamp is very good. I like the fact that you can rotate the clamp 90 with ease. I like that it has 2 quick indicator stops so you can just set your favorite focal length nodal point and easily get back to it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works It works as described. Just wish it was a little longer. Being able to rotate the clamp is a plus. Like all Acratech stuff, it is overpriced. There are other options that work just as well for about half the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must for simple panoramas The rail with its stops makes it very easy to repeat positioning the camera lens so that its entrance pupil (node) is collinear with the tripod/head axis of rotation. There are two rubberized stops provided. I just keep one as a spare and reposition the other stop at the ruled markings I have determined appropriate for each prime lens I use.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid, well-machined & finished. - Used with wide-angle to normal lenses for panoramic photography. - Solid, well-machined and finished construction. - Does not twist or torque. - Limited to normal lenses due to rail length and bubble level is only visible when there's no camera attached in the quick-release clamp.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can use on Wimberly head I bought the nodal rail for panorama's. It works great. But I use it more to mount my 5D MII and 1D MIV on a Wimberly head. With this nodal rail you can mount the body directly to the Wimberly head.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very well engineered Very well made product, though a little expensive. I paired it up with a Cullman ballhead and it provides a very robust and stable panorama setup for a reasonable amount of money.
