    compact medium format V mount camera - for Canon EOS lens - like ALPA TC concept

    Hi,
    compact ALPA TC style camera for Canon EOS lens / Hasselblad V mounts.
    Original based in FOTOMAN D-mini.
    D-mini is Unused camera. I'm 1st owner. Only for modify and Testing.
    NO SIGN OF USE. but some sign of Modifying, Welding, ETC

    Canon EOS lens mounts has lens eject button for safety mounting.

    I designed front parts via 3d modeling software and making mockup from 3d printer ,
    Finally Full Alloy CNC machining and Black matte finished. Done.

    Including ingenious Reverse design copal 3 mechanical shutter
    B, 1 ~ 1/125 sec available












    No vignetting in 22, 39Mpx back (49 mm x 37mm)
    Not tested Full size back(54mm x 40mm) yet, but I guess No vignetting even Full size

    ALL test by P25+ V mounts
    NIKON AF nikkor 17-35 set to 21mm, (35mm format equivalent to 16mm angle of view)
    sunny day HANDHELD test shot, 1/125 sec, F8 and ISO 50




    Canon mount Sigma 12-24 set to 18mm, (35mm format equivalent to 12mm angle of view)
    In studio test, 3 sec, F11 and ISO 100


    PERFECT FINE focus to Infinity even wide open aperture.

    It has Canon EOS lens mount.
    So Any DSLR lens use this camera via adapter
    like leica R, C/Y zeiss, Nikkor, Olympus OM, M42 etc

    My Olumpus 35mm shift lens can shift any X/Y directions to +/- 10/8mm.
    It means 24mm shift lens equivalent to Medium format.

    ITEM includes,

    FOTOMAN D-mini Body (new US$1490)
    D-mini optical viewfinder (US$352)
    Viewfinder mask for 645-38mm (US$99)
    V Back adapter (US$400)
    Original Box
    USED copal 3 shutter (US$300 value) Modified to Dmini body
    custom Cone for copal 3 shutter (US$1000 machining Fee)

    I expend over US$3600 to make this camera.

    I want to Sell this KIT US$2800.
    US$50 EMS shipping to Worldwide.
    Accepts PAYPAL, but paypal fee are not included. (add 4%)

    It is the only one of the world. MOST versatile compact camera.
    I'm selling because I'm 3D modeling by my Original Design, not based in FOTOMAN.
    It will be more compact body. Changeable back mounts (H, V, contax, Mamiya). Various color like Mirrorless.

    I need some money to Machining, Modeling and Modifying.

    That's a very ingenious design, Chiek! I wish I had money to support you in this endeavour (I also don't own any MF gear), perhaps you should investigate a crowdfunding site like IndeGoGo to help raise money for your project. If you do get the IndeGoGo project going, let us know here so we can pitch in to help!

    Thanks for your interest. and Yes, I'm thinking to go crowd funding seriously.
    but MF digital back market is very limited. so I'm worry about not succeeding funding.

    actually the Machining Day pay, 8 hours is US$500~1000. I invested over total US$10K since I starting to designing camera… I hope Someone have to join its making, to save money… but Nobody want, Just only wants final products...

    Seems like it would be easier to sell in a Mamiya mount back. So many more on the market.
