Topic: Macro focusing stage beefed up . :P
Here's a before and after of a little project i've been working on .
The novoflex macro stage is a great tool to work with , but at some point it start to become a little lightweight .
Also the rack and pinion aragment has some play in it which can make focusing a 25mm or smaller lens a challenge .
And the focusing knobs are tucked away nice and safely .
So i was looking for something a bit beefier but without spending 200 or more euro .
The idea struck me to look at industrial stages and found one on ebay which suited my needs .
It needed a little work to make it camera ready and got following result .
