    New TC si from ALPA

    Greetings forum friends,

    A beautiful new silver TC from ALPA. Functionally identical to the original TC just a different look to it. Fantastic, in my opinion! Available now.

    Paul, do you have or rather can you post few pictures with black ebony grips attached.. I've seen the rosewood.. not sure if you guys make or can make grips using Ebony?

    Thank you

    From their website. I think it's still rosewood though. Not ebony.

    Cheers, -Peter

    The old black grips for the TC were synthetic. The new grips for the TC are rosewood (natural) or rosewood (black). You can also get black rosewood for the WA/SWA.

    Maybe it would be better to check again? It's about NEW products.

    There is a brand new black Rosewood grip for the right hand side as mentioned by Peter. It is very attractive, black but the wood grain is still visible. Fits the hand perfectly. Currently there is no ebony grip available.
    Best Regards,
    Paul

    Here are a couple more views of the new Black Rosewood grip. This particular grip as shown only fits the TC or TC si. It ads essentially no weight to the camera package.

    Paul, it looks good on the picture.. so I guess Black Rosewood will do.

    My plan is to potentially buy x2 TC's so I can use Wide and Tele at the same time without going back and forth with exchanging lenses:

    - Now, I don't know much about Alpa so I'll ask if I can use the same model
    of view finder with wide and tele, or do I have to buy third party view finder.. or are you guys providing with the purchase of Alpa viewfinders different masks etc.?

    - Is TC perhaps small to mount the telephoto lens.. and if, whats
    the way around it.. meaning how do I set it up on tripod since
    the frame is so thin and therefore mild wind can potentially effect the performance regardless of how sharp the lens is.

    - Having one Digital Back mounted on the 1st TC.. obviously 2nd TC will be left with exposed lens on the back collecting dust.. To prevent that from happening (while I use my other TC) does Alpa provide their customers
    with dedicated back board so i can close it, and if.. I would appreciate
    some pictures?

    - Along the same road, can you please post the list of
    accessories/configuration I need.. and if they are different in regards to different DB Manufacturer Hasselblad/Phase/Leaf 'cause some need extra cables/some need other stuff etc., please make a note of it..

    I'm sure there are more questions but at this point if I'm missing something I'll let you fill in..

    Thank you
