Lens collars make recomposition from horizontal to vertical (and every angle in between) a snap. Unfortunately, many of our favorite lenses do not have this useful feature. And there are times when using an L-plate to recompose is not fAST Bearing or precise enough. Our exciting new CRD-87 solves those problems. Our CRD-87 keeps lens axis centered at any angle. Adjustable components allow for perfect positioning with virtually any camera & lens combo equipped with Really Right Stuff quick release plates. The CRD-87 is more than just a camera rotation device allowing quick horizontal to vertical repositioning; it's a precision adjustable support system fully integrated with our renown quick release components. Initially developed at the request of famous fashion photographer Melvin Sokolsky, our CRD-87 is super-robust and ideal for the studio Portrait, Fashion, and Product photographer, yet breaks down quickly and compactly for field and location use.
