Lifesize and above is a new gallery illustrating some of the images I have photographed using the Novoflex CASTEL-M in combination with the following Laowa Ultra Macro lenses: the 90mm f/2.8, 85mm f/4 and the superb 25mm f/2.8 2.5-5X. The rail works seamlessly with all of these great lenses. All of the images in this gallery have been photographed in the field between 1:1 (lifesize) and 5:1.

The rail design is unique and differs from any conventional rail currently available. It’s another example of where independent companies such as Novoflex and Laowa continue to push the boundaries by creating a rail and a series of lenses that allow photographers to tap into the world of true macro photography.

The CASTEL-M, unlike any other current rail, makes all of the calculations for you precisely and systematically. A simple adjustment of the increment lever to your choice of magnification setting, and the stepping distance and focus overlap are automatically adjusted. You can concentrate completely on the subject producing more accurate and consistent results every time. 

Setup showing the Castel-M with the Laowa 85mm f/4 Ultra Macro supported on the Novoflex PRO 75 and MagicBall; the ideal combination for stability. The following image shows the result.
