Hasselblad CFV ll 50c

Is it possible to use iPad tethering when using CFV II 50C with technical camera? Composing and checking focus from bigger screen ?

I think the misunderstanding is that with a tech camera you‘re not using the 907x part, but just the CFV II 50c. What you‘re left with is a manual digital back with live view, which means no aperture prio mode or metering for that matter.

I have to think about the consequences for me.

I am looking for a +- 35mm (28mm FF) around 15mm rise and fall solution with the 907x50c.

Thinking about HTS or V-lens shift?!

As FloatingLens mentioned, you can leave out the 907x. The CFV back can be used directly at a tech or view camera. If you own V-lenses, this may offer you the amount of rise and fall you're looking for.WRC-400_CFV50_001s.jpg

As far as I understand the CFV II 50c technique , you will have to use the electronic shutter for your shown camera set up .
So why would you then need a sync cable ?

There are adapters that allow to use the leaf shutter of the lens on Cambo. Alternatively you can of course also use the Hasselblad Flexbody.

Exactly. The adapter in this set up uses the Hasselblad lens' leaf shutter. So synchronising to the back is required.

Wow! This is a little bit frustrating. Just changed to MF and now I am loosing the simply workflow of my Leica gear completely.

So the solution is just using e-shutter and if there are some e-shutter issues changing to copal 0.
Moving to a medium format, modular system, technical camera implies a completely different shooting workflow compared to an integrated Leica camera system. I thought that would be pretty obvious. ??

Using only the CFVII 50c eshutter has its limitations due to the 300ms readout speed: for best results, both the camera and the subject must be absolutely still (a sturdy tripod and no wind on landscape shots). Here's an example demonstrating the effects when a car moving about 35mph intrudes into a still landscape shot:



To get the results you want, you will want to learn how to meter and use a setup configured to use the lens shutter. It's not that difficult. :D

Looking at the cambo homepages , I find that this adapter looks very stable and well made . I wonder , if that adapter could be made for use on other technical cameras . For example for ALPA .

!? so you don't use the CFV-50c II electronic shutter? it's like using the back with 907x+"native" XCD lens? (or you have to use it, set it to a value slower than lens shutter and let the cambo start the leaf-shutter at the right time!?)

(btw then why couldn't hasselblad provide an adapter that fully uses V lenses including their shutter, like they did on the H system with CF adapter, if even another brand could)

and obviously live view is possible?
and how do you re-cock the lens shutter?
... OK I see it in this page it's on "WRS-HVSA" adapter itself


I see on this Cambo page :

As the shutter inside the lens can be activated and released, this adapter can be used with virtually any digital back that can be synced by means of the flash contact. This includes Hasselblad's new CFV II 50C model.

But I still don't fully understand ... (except that I probably need that! ;))

And how expensive is this beautiful "toy"?
(I mean WRC-400 + WRS-HVSA + SLW-80 + WRC-H61(grip) => WRC-HVSA kit)
... OK 3500$ (in this digitalback.com page )

And how one would get that in Switzerland?

We've got a distributor in Switzerland. They'll be happy to take care of it.

Graphicart is in Bern and Zurich.

thanks!

now I just have to wait for a CFV 100c as this won't work with my X1D... it would likely work with my 2011 CVF-50 ccd, but without live view this wouldn't be very practical! ;) (I don't want to buy a third mini MF 50mpx sensor)
