Is anyone out there familiar with the Plaubel PL70 sliding adapter?
Very little information available on the web about it. I've contacted the only UK retailer I can find with some questions ... but nothing back yet.
In particular I was wondering:
1. Will it accept a Hasselblad V-fit finder, such as the RMFX? I believe the earlier version (PL41?) would, not sure about this one though.
2. Is it possible to remove and rotate the adapter plate 90 degrees for portrait format shooting?
3. Is the ground glass nice and bright, or dark and grainy? Could it be easily replaced (e.g. with a Maxwell screen)? Is a fresnel available?
4. What's the quality of the machining like?
It's indexed for stitching and has a clever way of raising the gg in order to position the digital back...but that's about all I know right now. I can't even find a decent picture of one.
