Camera Rail - Extended
DAM Useful Rail system with Extended Rail
DAM Useful Camera Rail System for turning your camera into a high-quality, high-volume scanner. These are built from vintage Nikon slide duplicator parts and Arca-compatible mounting hardware. They provide a perfectly aligned method for using your DSLR or mirrorless camera and macro lens for camera scanning.
These units are modified in a couple ways: I removed the diffusion glass so that it can produce even, full frame illumination against a light table or other diffuse light source. Additionally, I’ve filed out the corners of the negative stage so that you get a nice black border on negative scans.
Use this rail with the use of lenses longer than 60mm on a full frame camera (e.g. Canon 90mm macro).
If you are using a 40-60mm lens on full frame camera, or a 30-40mm lens on APS-C, you can purchase the standard rail version.
Not included: Camera, Macro lens, Arca-compatible camera plate. We suggest getting a plate that is dedicated for your particular camera to ensure perfect alignment.
The long rail system comes with 350mm rail, filed out slide/negative stage and shade extensions. Arca-compatible camera mount. Camera not included.
