Hejnar Photo E034 Nodal / Macro Rail Update

Hejnar Photo E034 Nodal Rail - bubble detail

As of July 2011 Hejnar Photo is supplying an updated version of the E032 Nodal / Macro Rail which I had reviewed earlier.
The new rail code is E034 and is identical to the E032 except for two details. Major difference is that it is equipped with a 12mm spirit level and a minor that the captive slot is now 2cm shorter in length.

The E34 Rail

Bottom (or back) view shows a recess in the front, where the spirit level is embedded.

Update: Feb 2012
As of February 2012 the Hejnar PHOTO E34 Nodal /Macro rail has a minor but very useful update. It has decimal scales engraved on both sides on top at full length, which proves very helpful when viewing the rail at vertical orientation.
