Oh why can't it just be point and shoot?

Can’t always keep as steady as I want when taking a hand held shot, as the camera with bounce flash is of a goodly weight. Also, the slightest breeze moving my subject causing the smallest of movements, causes the image to be blurry. Auto focus doesn’t work too well with macro (4x or higher) photography.

I have been doing some reading. Seems what I could use is called a “macro focusing rail”. Since the best way to get the object focused is to move closer or further away from the subject, this bit of hardware will incorporate the steadiness of a tripod mounted camera with moving towards or away from the subject. This will also work when using Telephoto lenses.

The hunt is on.
