The Negative Supply Basic Riser MK3 is the direct replacement for the Basic Riser MK2. It offers added height, rigidity and a more sold baseboard to work with a wider range of camera/lens combinations and to provide a more stable, rigid workflow.
There's nothing basic about the Basic Riser MK3. Designed to support nearly all popular camera and macro lens combinations, the Basic Riser MK3 is a capable copy stand for nearly any user. With a maximum riser height of 23 inches, the Basic Riser MK3 is capable of scanning 4x5 with up to 70mm full frame equivalent focal lengths, 120 film with over 100mm full frame equivalent focal lengths and 35mm with nearly any macro lens.
It’s designed to support systems from large DSLRs (un-gripped) such as the Canon 5D series or Nikon D850, large mirrorless cameras such as the Leica SL and Panasonic S1 series, and obviously works great with systems that are even smaller such as the Fuji and Sony mirrorless systems. It will even support most digital medium format systems!
The head is similar to what you’ll find on the Pro Riser MK3 with a secure mounting system that uses a t-handle to snug the camera down. There is a window on the side of the head that gives easy access to the 1/4-20 mounting point and a locking screw on the back of the head to keep it at the height you set. The central column is silver anodized and quickly attaches to the black powder coated, solid steel base with stainless steel hardware. All that to say that the Basic Riser MK3 is anything but “basic.”
