    X-Act 2 Bellows Camera - Rollei's X-Act2 bellows camera is an innovative system camera for the digital workflow and for traditional medium-format roll film photography. The compact monorail camera is compatible with the Rolleiflex 6000 system accessories and offers every conceivable adjustment option for perspective correction, avoidance of converging verticals, extension of depth of field and many other aspects of creative photography.
    Standard bellows interchangeable for wide-angle bellows, and recessed lens panel with bellows. Maximum freedom for unlimited perspective and focus control, collision-free center shift via base block.

    Mfr#66455
    B&H# ROPSSD

    Peter,
    I have responded to you as well. I very sure I can get the Hasselblad 205TCC, Mamiya RZ67, and Rollei X-ACt2 all works on the same digital sensor (Sinar 54H) for you. I have all of the adapters with backing up adapters.

    Re: FS: Rollei X-Act2 System

    Son, would you consider selling the Xact Bellows Lens Hood separately?

    Re: FS: Rollei X-Act2 System

    Marc, I do not have the X-Act2 lens hood. But I did forget to say that I do have the regular bellows as well which is included and since Peter is interested in the whole system I would like to keep them together since they are not easy to find apart. This is a painful decision since the Rollei X-Act2 is incredible for multi-shot backs which works best with the electronic shutters and in this case I also have the Rollei electronic shutters with the Apo Sinaron 5.6/135 which I will throw in for a cheap price as I mentioned to Peter.

    Best Regards,
    -Son

    Thank you Chuck for the kind endorsement.

    Peter, I sent the pm back to you already but I am in the library today so I will not be able to respond more till tonight my time. I also suggest that we email since pm is limited to word counts and your email and mine are simply too long.

    Re: FS: Rollei X-Act2 System

    Thank you Son.

    I can toss in a strong endorsement for the Rollei Xact also ... it's my main camera in studio ... to the point that I rarely ever use the H3D-II/39 body since the 39 digital back is mounted on the Rollei most of the time

    Re: FS: Rollei X-Act2 System

    thanks Marc and Guy this system is one of the most versatile system for medium format digital sensors. For example, you can use the Leaf new digital sensor with this PC system.

    Re: FS: Rollei X-Act2 System

    Since the Rollei X-Act2 has so many accessories and thus are quite flexible I would like to also educate this topic here. Below are the first two images of this system as a whole integration. I will continue to update as time permit. Thus expect to see the following: 1. The Whole Integration of the System in multiple platforms, 2. Front end, 3. Rear ends and again the integration of the front and rear ends.

    Re: FS: Rollei X-Act2 System

    Part II: Front Ends
    1. Using Rollei Electronic Shutters (Electronic shutters are essential for multishots digital back like the Sinar 54H in master mode). Here you can mount the Rollei Electronic Shutter in front with all of the digital lens that are available for this system from Rodenstock. Below is an example of this scenario:



    2. The X-Act2 can also takes Rollei 6008/Hy6 Lens via the lens adapter plate. This system allow the great Rollei lens to be used without having to buy into a complete Rollei 6008 or Hy6 system. Below are two images of this scenario with the Rollie 55PCS lens mounted. The PCS lens will add its own flexibility due to its huge image circle and its tilt and shift in both horizontal and vertical at the same time (talk about flexibility):



    In both situations, the lens are controlled by the Rollei Lens Control S unit demonstrate here below:

    Re: FS: Rollei X-Act2 System

    Part IIIa. Rollei X-Act2 Rear Ends
    The Rollei X-Act2 can use multiple mediums (digital or film backs) and multi-platforms via an adapter interphase. Below are two examples:

    1. The Rollei X-Act2 system can use the Rollei 6008 AF and Hy6 645 Film magazine back (the back can be mounted in portrait or landscape mode; very useful and efficient) or Digital sensor with Rollei 6008 interphase. The Rollei X-Act2 provide the focus mechanism via the Rollei PanShot Swivelling Device:

    Part IIIb. Rollei X-Act2 Rear Ends
    The Rollei X-Act2 can use multiple mediums (digital or film backs) and multi-platforms via an adapter interphase. Below are two examples:

    2. The Rollei X-Act2 system can also other system such as digital back with Hasselblad V and H interphase. The Hasselblad film back can also be used. In addition, the Hasselblad magnifying hood and prism can also be used to view the focus and composition. In addition, since the Hasselblad PME metering prism has a built in meter system that is separate from the body, all of these prism can be used to get exposure value especially when the system is extended in macro work scenarios. One caution, the metering will not be effective if the system is tilted and shift.

    Re: FS: Rollei X-Act2 System

    Please note: All the images I presented above is to demonstrate the system. The items for sale are listed in the original post of this thread. All of the other accessories are still functional units of my Rollei 6008 Integral II, Sinar Hy6 and Hasselblad 203FE and 205FCC systems. I would like to extend my courtesy to the buyer of the Rollei X-Act2 system so that the buyer will benefit of getting other systems to work. For these extra items I will give the buyer another discount and readily available for use. I will email the potential buyers but would like to further extend my courtesy to the forums by giving the first person the first opportunity and if that fail I will go to the next person. Thus, far I have two such potential buyers and waiting for the first person, PeterA to this opportunity. To be fair each person gets a 24 hours to commit. I am sure this unit will be gone by early next week.

    thank you Jack and Guy to allow me to place my add here.

    Best Regards,
    -Son

    The Rollei X-Act2 will also come with the original case and box (not shown) and original bellows (for macro works and long focal length lens):

    Son,

    This is the most comprehensive explanation of the Rollei X-Act system that I have seen. I have other stuff to buy, or this would have been on its way to me by now!

    Cheers,
