Recommendations please -> Copy stand

I've been looking at the Kaiser range, eg the RS2 XA, but I would appreciate guidance anyone could offer with regard to product choice, and other manufacturers I could consider.
Many thanks

Re: Recommendations please -> Copy stand

Years ago Pentax made a copy stand that the camera, using the filter thread, screwed onto the stand. It was supported by three legs, see here, http://www.earlyphotography.co.uk/site/entry_M77.html.
I wish I had got one all those years ago.

I've got a copipod, brought used for 15 a couple of years ago.
I have to admit I've not used it much yet.
BTW it's got four legs not three, (as the pic in your link confirms)


I've heard of people modifying an enlarger to use as a copy stand.

Similar to the Leica BEOON https://blog.redcentphotography.com/...e-leica-beoon/

Like hen's teeth, and expensive when they appear on the market.
