Looking forward to more information on this one. Pricing, more detailed specs and the most interesting question for me: Will I be able to use my AFi DB on it?

This is quite exciting. The arTec looks like it will fit nicely into this growing niche of the marketplace. I look forward to seeing it at Photokina.

I feel like I should congratulate you! Very Impressive!

Regards,

Jordan Miller

I have been secretly wondering why people would go to the extra hassle and expense of a camera like the Cambo, yet miss out on tilt movements. This seems to address that omission.

Tilt movements also opens up the possibility of losing exact plane-parallelism.
Looking forward to hearing how Sinar has implemented the tilt mechanism.

Further exciting would be if a Rollei-mount lens could be used
for those invested in the Hy6 platform.

Imagine if a Rollei 90mm Makro Apo Symmar could be mounted,
and used with multi-shot digital back for still life work.

i was invited today to SINAR in swiss to accompany the announcement to distributors. the first prototype together with some lenses was  finished last thursday and i received no.1 for testing it now on real work .....


to my surprise there was not a single compromise made regarding the specifications i gave to SINAR. in contrary the camera can do more than i was asking for.... looks great. Eventually a camera which can do all i am asking for in digital architecture shooting.

Ooh looks great... I'm assuming that the lens board is stationary for all shift movements? .. great news for stitching if so.....

- 360° turnable tripod mount

Is it geared rotation, Thierry?

Also, is its rotation point lined up with the center axis of the lens?

Dear Rune,

The AFi digital back can be mounted on the arTec, since it uses the same mount as the Hy6.

Best regards,
Thierry

Will digital backs in fixed Hasselblad V and H mounts fit?

Rainer,
I'm very impressed!

This is certainly the Alpa,Horseman etc killer!

Does the 23 mm  lens mean 24 or 28?
Just curious wether Sinar is now also using Schneiders beside the Rodenstocks.

And I can use e-75 Hy6 back as well?

Regards,

Willem.
