I bought recently a Used SWC (chrome) and realised that my CFV wouldn't fit at all on this camera, because of the tripod shoe under the camera directly on the battery axis.
there was no access to the screws, only flat heads... so no options to change the position or even getting rid of the tripod-shoe.
I was a bit upset, tried the ELM adapter, it didn't work neither as it was still 1mm too high on "the way" of the shoe.
I didn't want to force the back to fit in, so I finally returned the camera to the seller. I was lucky enough he accepted !
I can't afford a more recent SWC at 5,000 USD, so I am wondering what kind of Old SWC modified models would fit with Hassy Digital backs ?
is there a way to change the tripod mount so the CFV could fit easily ? i find a bit stupid that there was no solution to even change the tripod shoe ...
thanks for the Help !
