The 6.0" Adjustable Camera Platform from Dot Line is designed for very fine camera movements where the photography hinges upon precise adjustments. You can mount it on a tripod or other stand and adjust your camera's position one millimeter at a time to get the camera into just the right position. Combining two platforms will give you the ability to have left/right and front/back adjustments rather than just one of them. It features two 1/4"-20 threaded posts, an adjustment wheel and a lock.

    Adjustable Camera Platform (6.0") is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 42.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Can't go wrong for $ Seems solid. Longer than other bargain rails.Platform movement is not smooth so I took it apart to clean up the machine work. I filed the platform's rack-gear teeth, filed the pinion gear teeth, lapped the dovetails, lubricated the gears and dovetails, reassembled and adjusted the gib screws. It's a bit better but still does not move in a continuously smooth manner when the thumbwheel is turned. Basically the pinion and rack-gear have a ton of play, so there's lots of slop in the thumbwheel. It is still possible to make precise adjustments, but the movement doesn't feel so precise.Anyway, I can't really complain for $ and I'd get another one if this one stopped working.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good... I've been experimenting with macro photography for a while now and this is my first adjustable slide. I'm having much better results with the slide than with adjusting the focus. For $ I really can't complain at all about this device, but that's not my nature so I'll nitpick a little. I won't list everything I like about it which is most everything but the adjusting knob could be slightly larger to accomidate finer movements with more ease. There's not too much else I don't like about it though and is well worth the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE these guys! I'll confess- I bought heavier duty tripods than I really needed for my Panasonic HC-X920 camcorders. The tripods are designed for large camera bodies and long, heavy lenses sticking out in the front. When I loosened the fluid heads the camcorders always ended up pointing at the ceiling! This device allows me to mount any of my camcorders and then move them forward and back until they balance on the tripods. This is especially useful when I mount accessory lenses, mics and or video mics that change the camera's center of gravity. It is SO NICE to be able to use good tripods AND be able to fully utilize their fluid heads for pan AND tilt with every camera in my bag!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well for macro I bought two of these so that I can control my lens forward and back as well as left and right. The build was surprisingly strong. All parts are metal. Not sure how they compare to there pricier models but it does exactly what I need it to.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product This platform now lives on my tripod. I've used it with my 400mm tel to balance the load on the tripod and with my 70mm macro to make distance adjustments, as opposed to moving the tripod back and forth. The rack gears aren't super fine but if your careful it will do the job. The lock works very well and makes the setup secure. If you like macro work, you'll love this device!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built for the price Works great to lign up nodal point for basic panoramas. I also use it to mount a flash beside my camera. The product quality is surprisingly good for the money. The only weak point I've noticed is the set screw.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for panoramic photos I got this for getting the camera to pivot over the lens nodal point doing pano shots. Not butter-smooth with how big the notches are but good enough. And I have no idea why the arrow mark was set where it is.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good (for the price) Easy to adjust and with a positive lock. I will only give it four stars as the adjustment is a bit course and has some play in the gears. It does work fine for macro and overall I'm happy with it. I'll probably buy a second one for left/right adjustment also.
