iShoot Macro Focusing Rail Slider is a slider rail that allows you to move the camera lens along two rails to focus on subject matter that is very close up. When the lens is between the rails it focuses at infinity. The rails can also be used to keep a focus on a moving object while you follow it with the camera.

This rail will adjust from about 5 cm in front of your camera to 13 cm in front, although if you shoot close enough, you will see your subject matter in focus through the lens (depending on your camera’s minimum focusing distance).

The rail is very simple to use. Just move the lens along it until you get your desired focus point. Make sure that if you are using a wide angle lens, that when it is in its “landscape” orientation, the rails are rotated so the lens will be able to focus on very close subjects.

This rail is made of metal, which not only makes it strong but also helps with heat dissipation. The slider moves smoothly even when at maximum adjustments. See video below for how smooth it actually is!

This rail slider comes with a universal clamp that fits any cameras from small point and shoot cameras up to larger DSLRs, but not medium format cameras or larger.

Factors To Consider When Choosing Best Macro Rail

The best macro rail is the one that meets your needs. The following are some factors to consider when choosing a macro rail. 

Best Macro Rail

Weight

The weight of the macro rail will vary depending on its size and material used. Larger, heavier rails are more difficult to move but they provide greater stability an durability for heavier cameras or equipment. Smaller, lighter rails are easier to transport but less stable and durable. 

Length

A longer rail provides more surface area for attaching accessories like lights, reflectors or sandbags which can help with camera stability in windy conditions or on uneven terrain. 

However, there may not be enough room on a long rail to attach all desired accessories so shorter rails can be used in conjunction with longer rails to mount accessories on different areas.

Sliding surface 

The length of this section will affect how far an attached accessory will reach from the rail. Sufficient projection for lighting is often required for macro shooting so consider the type of light, its weight and its mounting options. 

For lightweight flashes, a short sliding surface is sufficient whereas heavy studio strobe units require the full length of the rail.

Also, smaller sliding surfaces can be used in conjunction with larger rails for macro lighting which gives greater flexibility in positioning the light especially when working on uneven terrain or unstable support. 

Best Macro Rail

Panning function

This option allows shifting the camera quickly left to right for panning shots. The design of the panning function will affect how it is used and its usefulness depending on the type of camera, tripod head or lens mounted.

Light weight ball heads are less suitable for mounting heavy DSLR gear so consider using a metal tripod head instead of an L-bracket which can often provide better stability and security with heavy cameras and lenses. 

The panning function on the macro rail is then used to quickly move the camera left or right (by hand) for panning shots rather than attaching a tripod head which requires tools and more time to set up.

Price

Prices for macro rails vary depending on their size, panning function and material used to make them. Like other camera equipment, the initial investment may seem high but it is often a good investment if you shoot in varied locations with unstable support or when windy conditions are involved which can affect your shots.
