Lets calm down. A lot of the members remember what had happened when some members of the RG MF forum lost temper.

Danijela, I must confess that I don't understand some of your recent posts.

However, if you have genuine concerns about Sinar's profitability, please bear in mind that they are basically owned (51% shareholding) by Jenoptik which is a very large and profitable public company, with a market capitalisation of over half a billion dollars, sales of over 2 billion dollars and over 10,000 employees.

You should not have any concerns about Sinar's financial stability.

I must admit, it is rather debatable issue. However, considering your recent investment in SINAR DB I cant expect you to understand, perhaps I would feel the same. We will see when I decide, but I promise you, I will not religiously talk about attributes which ever back I decide to purchase, much less about the product that didn't surf yet. Now, will that make me less genuine to Hasselblad/Phase/Leaf/Sinar I guess that is up to you guys to decide   or not? I hope you find a little humor just before the end of this sentence, otherwise use PM  .

Some of you are shifting and labeling my concerns primarily towards financial stability, and if you read the thread you will find it not to be true at all. This is exactly where counterproductive communication begins, and personally Im not looking forward to it.

I have been using the Arca C1 Cube for a bout 2 years now.  Great asset, makes fast work of setting up and is very flexible. One thing did was remove the quick release lever clamp and replace it with a Really Right Suff screw style clamp.

Hi Michael K,

Was the quick release lever clamp the one that malfunctioned by Really Right Stuff or
was it the original one by Arca Swiss?

Quote
The lever clamp is now much more secure. I did this after almost losing my camera and back when the clamp lever failed to positively snap into the locked position.
[a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=102967\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a]

Replacing it with a Really Right Stuff screw style clamp Is the RRS screw style clamp something I have to let RRS know and custom order it to fit the Arca C1 Cube, or is the standard RRS screw style clamp going to fit without any alteration.  

Wich one? Link [a href=\"http://www.reallyrightstuff.com/clamps/index.html]http://www.reallyrightstuff.com/clamps/index.html[/url]

One more question: Did you personally install the RRS screw style clamp on C1 Cube, or did you have to send the C1 Cube to RRS for them to install it?

Regards
Danijela

The clamp that failed was the Arca clamp that came with the C1. Subsequently I had it replaced by Arca, their customer service is excellnt, but I lost confidence in it's ability to securely hold a $30K camera.

There are two RRS clamps available. Metric and Imperial. Arca uses a metric screw so choose the RRS Clamp with the metric screw.

B2 Pro II with Metric 6 flat head screw,
(for all other heads)
Price: $86
     
Yes, I personally installed the new clamp. Very easy, all you need is a metric socket wrench and desire. ;-)

Hope this helps.

Hi Michael K.

It does, thanks for the info. I have ordered today Arca C1 Cube, it will be delivered in two weeks, that sounds a little long but I will wait. B2 Pro II with Metric 6 flat head screw is no problem it arrives in two days.

Regards
Danijela

I appreciate that. Would it be possiblle along with HC28mm to test the HC50mm also?

I will also post our website under my name, although our website is currently a wreck, in my opinion. It is being completely re-done, and that process will likely take about a month or two. In the meantime, bear with us.

Thanks,

I have the arca cube as well and I agree with your concern about the clamp.  It is the most horrible design I have ever seen.  I hate it.  I like your idea of removing and replacing with the RRS screw clamp.  It is a crime that such an expensive product have such a faulty attachment clamp. HOwever, I really like your solution.  I am going to do the same...
Overall though the cube is a great product.

[span style=\'font-size:11pt;line-height:100%\']Update:[/span]

Arca Swiss: Arca just turn their delivery of two weeks in to 4 weeks, anybody experiencing substantial delays with Arca?

Really right stuff: Excellent Service, they said it will be delivered in two days and it's actually here.

Rodenstock 28HR: I am not sure what to say, I guess I was promised to have one for testing in hope that I will like the 24XL and forget to bother further with 28HR.

So, is there anybody in New York, California/L.A. using 28HR or having one on stock, it would help if it's in ALPA mount, but if not, as long as we can test it, I'm fine.

I would be happy to pay for it, if necessary.

Regards
Danijela
