Having the option is great, you could migrate your favorite lenses one at a time and get this functionality.I imagine this announcement is just reactionary to Cambo’s recent announcement. I’m sure Alpa customers have been asking since seeing that news. I’m not sure if mid-2021 counts as “coming soon” but I guess it could!
Good news indeed. Hopefully Arca Swiss follows suit and makes upgrades available. It will surely be expensive but I could maybe justify it for 1 or maybe 2 lenses.
Indeed! I think I still would like an option to control the shutter without an IQ4-150 attached (Alpa Silex, phone app, whatever) before I invest in a shutter, as I still shoot film and wouldn't want to give up the ability to use an old back as backup in a pinch. Of course since the 43 XL does not appear to be compatible with the X-Shutter, I guess I will always have it to work with film and back up backsHaving the option is great, you could migrate your favorite lenses one at a time and get this functionality.
I know this is a bit off-topic. I assume the "stroking-the-white-cat bit" is a parodic allusion to Flemming's character of Ernst Stavro Blofeld, head of SPECTRE, who was always seen stroking a white Persian cat?He’s not paid to be nefarious either, as a product manager. You have to go a bit above his role for the stroking-the-white-cat bit.
