The 4-ways Macro Focusing Slide Rail can be adjusted in four directions: forward, backward, left and right.

1x 4-way Macro Focusing Rail Slider
Light duty focus rail
Pros: Inexpensive option for a focus rail, or X-Y positioner.
Cons: not very strong. uses plastic which deforms under moderate stress.
Other Thoughts: As long as you don't have a heavy camera and/or lens this is a great option for the price. at 1/10 the cost of a professional version I suppose it has a little better than 1/10 the strength of a pro model. probably great for point and shoot but not a DSLR like the 7d with a 100mm+ macro lens. 4 eggs instead of 3 because you get what you pay for... and I didn't pay much.
