I have recently bought Sinar camera consisting of Sinar digital back 54H and the Sinar P2 together with Sinarcam2 and DB mounted lenses.
The photographer who owned the equipment before me used powermac G5 with older sinar software. I got the mac newly formatted with OS 10.4.
The latest Sinar captureshop didnt even install. I have now changed to "MBP early 2011" and suceeded with the installation of the program. But I still cant get the camera to work. I have managed to get the back to capture but the Sinarcam2 is not responding. I guess its a software issue.
Connections as following,
digital back > firewire 400 cable > adapter firewire 400 to 800
Cable between the Sinarcam2 and the digital back
Sinarcam2 > special cable to the databox > serial cable > adapter > usb in the MBP
In the Captureshop 6.1.1 I can choose the hardware setup. The digital back is automatically detected.
The camera I have to choose manually, If I choose Sinar 4x5 and sinarcam2, then the camera doesnt respond and I cant capture anything.
There are other alternatives like Sinar p3, Sinar Hy6, Sinar M and other brands. but nothing is right here.
I cant find the older version of the sinar software anywhere.
