I'm considering either Fotoman Dmini or a Fotoman 69. My business is street photography but I find myself doing architectural work from time to time and I feel a Fotoman product would be great in this capacity.
My question is, what exactly do I need to get up and running? From what I can tell I need a Cone, a Helical, a Lens, a Body, a Back, a Viewfinder, a Release, a Handle, and a Viewfinder Mask. Am I missing anything?
I would also like to know if I could use Kiev 120 backs on the Fotoman Dmini (last I heard they're like $60 new), as well as opinions of Hasselblad wind knobs on the A12 backs? I know the Horseman knobs are fairly straightforward, are the Hasselblad knobs finicky at all? Will I have to turn them some fraction to advance a full frame?
Does anyone know much about the quality of the Fotoman products these days? Or has had any experience with them that could give an opinion?
Thanks in advance,
