I'm not really that interested in having another chord in the mix so I've been avoiding connecting the box to my computer/Zerene. I may be misunderstanding how to perform the the prerun you describe. When you say move the rail, are you meaning the camera on the rail, or the whole stackshot rail?rjlittlefield wrote:Have you tried the technique of backing off and moving forward only, described at http://www.photomacrography.net/forum/v ... 369#214369 ?
Currently I'll find where I want to start and end. Go way backwards, beyond where I'd even think about starting, set my start, move forward, and set my end (a bit beyond, but it doesn't seem to have problems stopping where I want it to).
I get no side to side wobble, and only have this forward lurching issue. Everything is connected via arca clamps so it's all modular and very easy to move around as needed- very tightened down as well- all secured to extrusion bars.
When I set my end point and move back and beyond my start point, I have the issue of it starting too far ahead initially, so no forward lurch, just not starting where I actually set it.
@mawyatt I'll look into the THK KR20. I've read a few comparisons between the two and have toyed with the idea of grabbing the kit off MJKZZ since reading about it on extreme-markro.uk.net. I'll also try overloading the rail as well for now!
Thank you both
