Hello experts- and Merry Christmas!
I am very interested in either adapting my RZ67 Pro II to work with my P45, or getting a 'D' body for more compatibility. My main concern is the length of the exposures. According to Mamiya and Phase One's websites, the maximum exposure length you can achieve with a DB on the 'D' body is 60-seconds. I'm guessing this is because of the shutter dial, which only has a "B" setting that caps out at 60-seconds. Is there no way to use the camera in "T" mode using a digital back?
I know that there is a long/multiple exposure cable for the Phase backs that you can use for manual cameras, which would presumably work with the Pro II (non-D) body, but is this cable necessary for the "D" version as well for longer than 60-second shots? And even then, will it work? Does the D body communicate with the back all the necessary information thereby making longer than 60-exposures simply impossible by virtue of the digital connection itself? In other words- does the 'D' camera override the override?
If anyone shoots long exposure with an RZ67 I would love to hear about your technique/experience.
