Can someone help me out with a fairly simple question I have about this camera?
I know the "Pro IID" was announced around the same time the ZD back was announced about 45289589 years ago, because they seem to be designed for each other, but I'm a little confused about how this camera works with other digital backs compared to the regular "Pro II" (the non-"D").
On the Phase One digital back chart, it basically shows this:
- A Hasselblad V mount digital back = RZ Pro II with Phase One adapter.
- A Mamiya 645AFd mount back = RZ Pro IID with MAMIYA adapter.
Now, the regular Pro II requires cables going from the digiback to the camera, and also to the lens.
Does the Pro IID require ZERO cables with a Phase digital back?
What's the purpose of the Mamiya adapter, and where the hell do you find one?
And finally, how does LEAF mount their backs on the Pro IID? Do THEY require the Mamiya adapter as well?
I'm not necessarily moving into this system, but I'm just trying to educate myself on this matter. It might be nice to have one back that works on both the 645AFd AND the RZ67.
