..hello to all..
..maybe i should post this in the large format department, but i try to start here..
..it is a coincidence that chiek shows this making compact technical camera for A7/A7r in his thread..by the way..impressive idea..
..as i own a speed graphic camera and have been looking for a while now to get an adapter that allows me to use my a7r to stitch (most of) the 4x5 photo area i only could find some that allow to stitch one row which results in a remarkably smaller scan area from some chinese sellers on the bay..there also is a back from fotodiox which allows to scan two rows including some overlap, but firstly the scanned area is also not enough for me as i want to capture the character of the lens used in the format the lens was calculated for and secondly its quite expensive for about 500 dollars..
..so i am highly interested in chieks product and am thinking about ordering one but having the speed graphic in my drawer i would prefer to use that one..given there is an adapter that i can really work with..
..oh, and i know there are the betterlight scanning backs, but they are much too expensive for me....and also not that convenient to use in the field..
..all thoughts and suggestions highly welcome..
..thx a lot in advance, erik..
