I've been struggling recently when out shooting with my Mamiya 7ii because I am requiring the use of movements, in particular rise and fall. I'm wondering what systems, that accommodate both film and digital backs, are most recommended by Getdpi members. I ask it to be compatible with both mediums because at the moment the digital backs in the spec range I want are out of my price range, especially if factoring in a new body and lenses. Plus I'd like an upgrade path to digital as I can afford it.
I just checked out the Alpa system web page to see what the fuss is about, and wow! Great system, but those prices are huge! As I understand by reading the web documentation, the 12 TC doesn't allow movements? And the 12 Max is the body I'd need to be looking at? Also, I'm not sure how you can see the movements when using the Max. Do you have to use a GG attachment and a loupe? I'm assuming the viewfinder doesn't have markings to show movements.
What are the other systems out there? I'm specifically after compact units. If I had the money I'd just get a Hasselblad with the TC adaptor, but beggars can't be choosers! Anyway, any discussion surrounding MF multi format compatible cameras with movements is appreciated.
