Yeah, the 6008Af does indeed have that feature.  When I had one, I never used this feature, however.  It didn't seem all that useful.

The Rollei 6008AF has it btw too.

I've never used it though.

Hi William and Carl, It doesn't surprize me that no one has ever used it Focus Trap. It wouldn't surprize me if this feature doesn't even work. The technology is archaic. But, it is more than what I have on the H1. If when I try Focus Trap on a production unit and it can actually provide in focus capture I understand I will be the only person to ever use it.

the shutter would have to fast like the canon to be usefull- or the subject would be out of focus by the time the mirror is up. i doubt any med format camera would be fast enough.

David,

I did mention the "Focus Trap" feature, a long time ago however!

Another UNIQUE feature I did mention was the "Focus Braketing". Here what this feature does:

When "Focus Bracketing" is selected, the Sinar Hy6 makes a series of images (for the time being 5) in dependence of the current aperture.

The central image (nr. 3/5) is made exactly on focus target. Whereas image nr. 2/5 is half the depth of filed closer and image nr.1/5 is one depth of filed closer than the target focus. Image nr. 4/5 is half the depth of field farther away than target and image nr. 5/5 is one depth of field farther away than target.
 
Use:
Such a function can be of use when somebody is e.g. using the images for computer rendering.

Hope this helps,
Thierry

Actually Greg, no one has ever mentioned the "Focus Trap" feature of the Hy6. If the focus trap feature is true, the marketing guys for the Hy6 really suck. Focus Trap would be a second cousin to Predictive IA Servo Focus. Not unlike the the focus trap feature first seen on the original Minolta 9000 from centuries ago. It could be reason enough me to buy a Hy6. Thanks for the input.

David,

this feature works well: it is also a feature of the Sinar m, working the same way, and I did use it to be able to say that it works well.

Best regards,
Thierry

I repeat myself: this is certainly not an issue concerning Sinar. Please ask this question to Phase One. It has always been the manufacturer of a digital back to be concerned and decide about making an adapter for a certain camera platform, always.

Thanks and best regards,
Thierry

Couple of things: Is this setup going to cause red-eye with the Hy6. The Metz 54 (which I use) looks pretty close to the lens. http://www.pbase.com/omoses/eq_rollei   Also, I'd like to apoligize for my comment that Hy6 marketing people suck as Trap-Focus was mentioned very early on in this thread. Helps to read the entire thread, sorry.

IMO Live View data should be able to drive exposure focus and aperture

Interesting to see that the new nikon does this.

Surely the future for wide angle MF photography

Had a very brief play with a pre production Leaf AFi this evening (and a 1Ds MkIII, it was a good night!). Very nicely put together. The rotating grip is fantastic! The AF is usefully fast. Both the stop down & mirror up actions were very quick, not to mention very easy to activate as the buttons are right there. The only awkward thing was how the battery on the 75S back protruded about 10mm below the base of the body, meaning the camera can't sit flat.

Goes to show what I don't know. I was thinking Leaf was making a new back that got its power from the cameras battery grip. Heck, just change the mounting plate on the 75s. That was easy..

Speaking of mounting plates, I forgot. A rotating plate (no need to remove the back to change from vert to horz) is in the works at the moment.

Also solves the problem of the camera sitting on the battery - rotate the back. Life's good again.
