    Have you experienced with these cheap rails? With the weight on it, are they still smooth to adjust?

    Having said that, is there any drawback on the items stated above?? What are the adv/dis-adv of both and which should I get??

    I'm using a 600D, have a 50mm 1.8, kit lens 18-55 and a zoom, 18-200.

    Thanks in advance!

    Actually, I have one of them... it was not excellent, but good enough for a noob like me... it is just that when I adjust it to the distance I want, I need to physically stabilize it (literally) because the entire camera is shaking and shivering from the movement... and many a time, it caused me my subject.

    In the end, I ended up shooting static objects for the time being, until I am experience enough with the rail.
    I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.
