I will get my Artec tomorrow but I had a hard time deciding for it because I would like to also shoot handheld sometimes(for example when hiking ton mountains you often have beautiful vews but dont allways have much time and dont wallways want to carry a tripod).
Therefore I believe it would be a clever move if Sinar offered also something like the Alpa SWA or the Cambo WRS1000, a more compact body, eventually with shift, but nothing else (no sliding adapter, no tilt, …) but handholdable.
In the end I believe that I will use the slidingadapter with groundglass of the Artec more often than I would want a handholdable, lite camera-body and therefore decided for the Artec, but I could imagine a second “lite” body.
This body could also be much lower price, and Sinar could maybe catch those guys, who want to step in with a lower budget, or rhose who might not need groundglass etc. because a optical viewfinder (or life-view) would work well. And some might buy both-an Artec and the lighter body.
What do you think?
