Hejnar Photo E033 Nodal / Macro Rail Update

Hejnar Photo E033 Nodal Rail - bubble detail

Right after the release of my E031 Nodal / Macro Rail review, Hejnar Photo is supplying an updated version of this rail which I present for reference.
The new rail code is E033 and is almost identical to the E031 except for few details and improvements. Major obvious differences are, that it is equipped with a 12mm spirit level and that the captive slot is now 2cm shorter in length following the same design with the E034 rail.

The E033 Rail

A new improvement is the existence of a fifth pin hole for the alignment of F6nn Quick release clamps which was not present in E31.

Bottom (or back) view that reveals an improvement with two M3 safety stop screws at both ends instead of one in the front on the older version, as well as a recess in the front, where the spirit level is embedded. and a small change in the rear in order to accommodate the fifth pin hole.
