baby graflok digital adaptor plates?
« on: March 01, 2012, 04:42:17 AM »

Okay, this is the "I have a friend that wonders" type of question :). I'm not planning to make a high end digital system out of a Horseman VH.

Still, this is the question - Horseman VH has graflok 6x9 international standard interface, also called "baby graflok", where you put in the rollfilm backs - is there any digital back adapters for this format? It is easy to find for 4x5" graflok, but not the smaller it seems.

Maybe Arca-Swiss 6x9 adapter plates for the F-line cameras will fit on the horseman baby graflok?

I know nothing about this, but I would also say to check with Kapture Group http://www.kapturegroup.com/ if they don't have what your looking for, they might be able to fabricate someone for your "friend" ;)

Just from a quick look they make a sliding back that they call a "compact" sliding back "exclusively" for the Arca RM3D which is a 6x9 format camera...

The Mamiya RB67 (and some Mamiya Press) film backs are also "baby graflok", but before you get all excited thinking "I've seen digital backs on an RB67!", the "G adapter" (G for Graflok) has to come off before the digital back adapter (e.g. Mamiya HX702) goes on. So, since the most commonly used "baby graflok" camera doesn't actually use its graflok fitting for mounting digital backs, I would not be very hopeful that you'll find something off-the-shelf.
