Does Helcion Remote work with the Wemacro Rail? If no, is there any intention to offer support? I did a search but found no reference to Wemacro.

Wemacro Rail: http://www.wemacro.com/

Helcion Remote doesn't work with the Wemacro Rail.
You can use StackShot macro rails: http://www.heliconsoft.com/steppers/

Thanks.

I knew Helcion Remote works with StackShot, but StackShot is a lot more expensive than Wemacro.

Hi Stas,

Is there any chance to have support for Wemacro rail in future as well? (In addition to stackshot.)
I have seen many more such requests on other forums, but unfortunately these people seem not to ask for support here.
Stackshot is for sure the most common macro rail but Wemacro seems to be a very good rail as well and is a lot cheaper than Stackshot, so it might become a viable alternative for more people soon.

Is it technically difficult to add support?

Thanks in advance for any information on this matter!

Kind regards,

Norbert

We're looking into it. Which is to say, we have no news for now but it's possible we will support this rail.

Thank you Stas, this sounds really good! I hope there are no problems and I am looking forward for the implementation of Wemacro support! Will be really nice to have another good rail supported. :D

I hope you support the WeMacro rail. I use it along with the Helicon FB Tube for field photography. Both devices work well, complimenting each other.
